evaluating a snippet with no meter

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I am trying to work with some music recorded freely and thus with no quantised meter, one of the snippets looks like this:

when I do an 'audition omn' command-1, I get the error below, am I right in suspecting it is because there is no meter? I tried get and calculate time signature just in case I could get some crazy irrational value just to satisfy the software, but it doesn't work either... admittedly I am not using the language to make a score but to manipulate an existing performance. This is the error:

Error: The GET-SPAN output denominator is not a power of two (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ...). Denominator: 640.
> While executing: (:internal get-time-signature-l get-time-signature), in process Listener-1(7).


Thanks for your help!
