    museq outputs sig-based signals. Reading sig's readme to get an idea of what sig is might help for using museq and reading its api docs.

    install

    node:

    $ npm install museq
    
    var museq = require('museq')
    

    browser:

    $ bower install museq
    
    <script src="/bower_components/sig-js/sig.js"></script>
    <script src="/bower_components/museq/museq.js"></script>

    api

    sync(v[, origin[, interval]])

    Synchronises a value or signal to an origin timestamp and an interval. In the context of music, this can be useful for synchronising multiple tracks to start playing at the same time.

    If a value is given as v, the value will be outputted by the returned signal when the next time intersection occurs. If a signal is given as v, each value outputted by v will be outputted by the returned signal each time the next time intersection occurs.

    origin should be given in milliseconds since the unix epoch. If origin isn't given, the timestamp at which museq was loaded is used. If origin is a signal, a new sync will occur each time origin outputs a new value.

    interval should be given in milliseconds. If interval isn't given, the global interval is used. If interval is a signal, a new sync will occur each time interval outputs a new value.

    var s = museq.sync(23, +(new Date()) - 500, 1000)
    s.each(sig.log)
     
    // 500 milliseconds later ...
    // 23

    loop(v[, interval])

    Loops a value or signal to play each interval.

    If a value is given as v, the value will be outputted by the returned signal each interval. If a signal is given as v, the latest value outputted by v will be used as the value outputted by the returned signal each interval.

    interval should be given in milliseconds. If interval isn't given, the global interval is used. If interval is a signal, each value it outputs will cause the returned signal to output subsequent values at the new interval value.

    museq.loop(23, 1000)
      .each(sig.log)
     
    // 23
     
    // 1 second later ...
    // 23
     
    // 2 seconds later ...
    // 23
     
    // 3 seconds later ...
    // 23
     
    // ...

    seq(values[, interval])

    Takes in an array of values or a signal that outputs arrays of values and sequences the values to be outputted by the returned signal at equivalent intervals adding up to interval. For example, if interval is given as 4000 and the values is given as [1, 2, 3, 4], 1 will be outputted at 0 seconds, 2 at 1 seconds, 3 at 2 seconds and t at 3 seconds.

    If an array is given as values, each value in the array will be outputted at the next interval / values.length milliseconds. If a signal is given as values, each value in each array outputted by values will by sequenced, along with any previous arrays outputted by values.

    interval should be given in milliseconds. If interval isn't given, the global interval is used. If interval is a signal, each value it outputs will cause the returned signal to output subsequent sequence values at the new interval value.

    museq.seq([1, 2, 3, 4], 4000)
      .each(sig.log)
     
    // 1
     
    // 1 second later ...
    // 2
     
    // 2 seconds later ...
    // 3
     
    // 3 seconds later ...
    // 4

    every(s, n, fn[, arg2[, arg3[, ...]]])

    Takes in a signal s and returns a new signal that maps each nth value through a function fn. Each value outputted by s that isn't the nth value will simply be outputted by the returned signal without passing it through fn. If extra arguments are given, they are used as extra arguments to each call to fn.

    var s = sig()
     
    s.every(s, 2, function(v) { return v * 2 })
     .each(sig.log)
     
    s.putEach([1, 2, 3, 4])
    // 1
    // 4
    // 3
    // 8

    interval

    museq.interval is the global interval used as a default for sync, loop and seq. It is a signal, so any new value given to it will cause any currently active signals listening to it to react to the new value. The signal is initialised to 2000 milliseconds.

    museq.interval.put(500)
    // all existing and new museq signals will now use 500 milliseconds as their interval
     
    museq.interval.put(1000)
    // all existing and new museq signals will now use 1000 milliseconds as their interval
