"Play/loop media file in selected tacks(toggle),slot 'n'" actions BUGS #411
From pyt...@yahoo.com on November 14, 2011 14:09:22
When using the new "Play/loop media file in selected tacks(toggle),slot 'n'" actions with MIDI files toggling does not work.
I'm using SWS version 2.1.0 #18 Win32
If it's not too much ask.., I was wondering if you could also add actions that when toggled would pause the media file so that when the action is ran again the media file would continue from where it was paused? They could be labeled something like....,

Hey Anton, I can confirm toggle states are not correctly reported (always "off", fix coming soon..) but I can't confirm the playing issue: all is ok here, if I use "toggle play" (or "toggle loop") actions, MIDI is correctly played on 1st execution and stopped on 2nd execution (ok with audio files too).
ps: actions with "pause" would be possible..

It looks as though I've encountered another problem. Using the Play/loop toggle actions with .wav as the source.., when I toggle it to off I can't get it to start again using the toggle action however if run (Play/loop media file in selected track, slot 'n') it starts to loop again and I can use the toggle action to stop it but not restart it. The only way I can get the toggle action to work again is to create a new project. To answer your ? yes I made sure it was the same track.
I tried it on another computer and had the same issue. Both pc's have Reaper installed using the portable option.

Sorry but I definitely can't reproduce! All is ok here.
Please, can you enter reproduction steps of what you are doing, I mean step by step, including track selection, etc ?
Also, I'm not sure I understand.. are you now saying it is ok with MIDI but only wrong with audio?
thanks for hanging on, Anton! we'll sort this out!

Ok.., this is so strange the problem with .wav files has corrected it's self. Must have been a ghost in the machine/gremlins issue as I know for sure it wasn't user related and when I tried it today I didn't do anything different. Maybe it had something to do with the S&M.ini file and when Reaper was shut down and restarted it corrected itself ?
Now onto the MIDI issue.., I'm glad to say I tracked down the root of the problem.
Unfortunately I'm now receiving stuck notes. You don't really notice it unless you are playing through an instrument such as violin or a synth. I even tried the option under MIDI Devices for "On stop/play Send all-notes-off" but that doesn't seem to work. Please let me know if you track down what's causing this.

MIDI: Wow! Thank you, excellent finding Anton! Yes, I now confirm the pb when MIDI files are imported as in-project data (which is the default pref, but not here :-) => fix coming soon..

The problem with "Play/loop media file in selected tracks(toggle), slot 'n'" using .wav files has reared it's head again. I have no idea what's causing it. It was working fine for awhile then I toggled it to stop and tried to toggle it to play again and it would not play. I then cleared the slot and tried other .wav files and it's really weird some would work once then I would toggle to stop and again to play and nothing.., I clear the slot again and load a different file and toggle a bunch of times without any problem. If I try to reload one of the files I had a problem with I can't get it to play at all unless I close the project and start over.
It seems the problem happens more on my Vista system.., I did have it happen the one time on XP but I just did a bunch of tests on XP and could not reproduce.

if you do some tests, please can you use this build instead: https://code.google.com/p/sws-extension/downloads/detail?name=reaper_sws.zip (it includes fixes discussed above + some updates that might fix the remain audio toggle issue: mutexing updates)

Woo-hoo! I've been testing the test build for the past couple of hours and things seem pretty rock solid.., I even created some cycle actions using .wav and MIDI files combined(really fun by the way) and no problems so far. Great job..., thank you so much. :)
