do you think is possible to set timetag to cursors, so that, when the main clock reaches a certain time, they will start their pattern?
I know this could be done with commands via trigger, but my observation is the following:
if i set a cursor pattern on one run only, as soon as i press play it runs till the end. if main clock is continuing that cursor will never play again.
It will play only if I fast rewind and press play from the beginning.
This suggests to me all objects receive a “play” message at start.
Wouldn’t be possible to set a timetag for cursors that could operate (if someone wants to) at a specific main clock time?
That would give Iannix to have a straightforward sequencer ability as well.
Or am i missing the whole point?
Yes, you can start cursors at a specific timecode using “initial offset” parameter (1st parameter near “CURSORS OFFSET / BEGINS FROM”)
If you specify a negative initial offset, cursor will start at the given time!
Dear Guillaume, thank you for your reply.
These offset settings change where the cursor will start on the curve.
At least in my version 0.8.42 beta.
Under Cursor offsets>”Begins From” I can set the start of the cursor on the curve; “Goes from” I have noticed it does the same thing.
I would like to know if it is possible to put cursors in relation with the global timing.
I would like to set an offset, and the cursor waiting at start position at the beginning of the curve, until the global time matches its offset.
I would do something like:
starting playback, and two out of three curves don’t play, until a certain time specified. Is that possible at all?
Hope this is clearer than before, my apologies for the confusion.
