Fire Periodically (vuo.time.firePeriodically2)

Repeatedly fires events at a steady rate.

If Seconds changes, the node fires its next event when the updated interval of time has passed since it fired its previous event. If more than Seconds seconds have already elapsed, the node fires immediately.

The fastest this node will fire is every 0.001 seconds, even if Seconds is smaller. If Seconds is zero or negative, this node doesn’t fire any events.

An alternative to this node that’s more suitable for protocol compositions, since it doesn’t fire events, is Allow Periodic Events.
