I have nicked the timer from the C&G Recorder for a 4 track recorder I am working on and on the PC screen it starts at 0:0:0 as you would expect but when printing to the Organelle screen it starts at 0:0:1, i.e. the screen is 1 second faster. I can’t workout for the life of my why this would be.
Maybe because the metro outputs a bang instantly when switched on, but you would expect that it would wait for the first « tick » ?
Edit : re-reading your post, I don’t think I see what’s wrong. Sorry, it’s too early in the morning.
Any tips how to get the time to appear as hh:mm:ss, i.e. two significant figures for the minutes and seconds? Purely aesthetical but when the timer starts the display currently goes:
