[Csnd] meaning of error message

Dear community,
while running a certain patch, I get the error message below:

new alloc for instr 100:
WARNING: Seeding from current time 3938677046

Is it important?
What does this mean?
Thanks for Your help,
Stefan

It’s not an error, merely letting you know that the random number generator has been reset based on the current timestamp. It would be more friendly if it said “INFO” instead of “WARNING”.

Thanks! So I can keep calm and carry on.

yes --- just get nervous in case you expected 3938677047 instead ...

Ha ha!
