Medial file slot actions: audio/MIDI synchronization #435
From pyt...@yahoo.com on December 17, 2011 09:06:51
I noticed something about the media file slot actions, I don't know if anything can be done about it, but I thought I would see anyway.
Examp: Load just one .wav file in a slot then create 2 tracks and select both of them then execute any of the media file slot actions so that the same slot is playing through both tracks. What you'll notice is there is a small offset between the two tracks. If you use one of the "loop(toggle,pause)Infinite looping" actions each time you toggle the pause you'll notice the offset gets wider and wider and starts to sound like a delay effect. Do you think there is a way to improve this, or is it something we'll just have to deal with ?

Hey, I changed the title an I turned this bug as an FR: it is possible to get synchronization across tracks (I mean, having all tracks playing/paused/unpaused/stopped synchroneously) but it will be a compromise...
I will an "advanced" option MediaFileLockAudio for that in the S&M.ini file but it will be disabled by default because, if you use media file actions to overdub a playing project, it will be in perfect sync but it can glitch. However if you use that option without overdub, it will be in sync and glitch-free..
I will also add another "advanced" option MediaFileLockCache which will improve the actions' execution time. Compromise once again.. Like any "cache" option, media files will be triggered faster but it will use more RAM (only 1 disk access then the media file will RAM resident until you exit REAPER).

Nice to hear that there is a solution to this :)
I was just wondering..., how is the Reascript project coming along? Are all of you guys working on it, or is it mostly fingers project? I'm so excited about it, especially if it will be possible to edit MIDI events without having to deal with chunk patching. The one thing that I would really like to program is a MIDI event selection preset system. So that I can save/load different note/event selections.

hey, no worry with RAM Anton! After deeper tests, forget what I said about "caching" things: my error, would be useless.

Reascript project: issue 432 would be a better place for that discussion.. but, personnaly, yes, I started to look how I could share some sort of "chunk tool" I made
