elapsedtime — Read absolute time in seconds.


Read absolute time, in seconds, since the start of the performance.


ires elapsedtime
kres elapsedtime


Time in seconds is available with elapsedtime. This would return 0.5 after half a second.

elapsedtime can both produce a k-rate variable for output. There are no input parameters.

elapsedtime can also operate at the start of the instance of the instrument. It produces an i-rate variable (starting with i or gi) as its output.

[Note] Note

elapsedtime acts like times but it returns the correct values instead of being one cycle late.
