Automated MIDI Sampling Patch

I want to sample more MIDI outboard gear for the creation of sample packs. To simplify the process, I made this Max patch. The patch generates note ons and note offs at regular intervals and lengths, and adds program change messages once a counter has been reached.  It can be easily edited to provide different intervals and lengths, of course. Simply change some of the math and the counting, and voila.

The idea is to automate or semi-automate the process of recording samples from MIDI-enabled hardware with more flexibility and customisation than a linear sequencer would normally allow. A simple solution to a basic problem.
