Hi Laurens,

Wow, this is cool! The sound of network latency.

It’s probably simpler and more efficient not to use the scheduler if you are just making changes to a synth immediately. Instead, you can call .set() on the synth. Here’s a version of your code, updated to this:


Synth.set() will take either a single key/value pair as two arguments like this:

mySynth.set(“carrier.freq”, 440);

Or an object containing multiple key/value pairs, like this:

    “carrier.freq”: 440,
    “carrier.mul”: 0.5,
    “modulator.freq”: 123

I hope this helps,
