There is no difference between the Sardine Clock and the Tidal Clock. There are a few functions you can use if you are more familiar with the Tidal model:

  • clock.cps: set the number of cycles per second for your patterns.
    • (135/60/4) to set the tempo at 135 beats per minute.
  • clock.get_cps(): get the cps from the current clock.tempo.

The cps attribute is both a setter and a getter, meaning that you can write:

clock.cps = 0.5 # set the value
clock.cps       # get the value

There is no difference between running a pattern using the Internal Clock or using the Link Clock.
