Tips for using the Playback plug-in
The design of the Playback plug-in allows you to use it in many different ways. You should plan how you intend to use the Playback plug-in when you are designing your concert to use it most effectively. You can try out different placements and settings to decide how you want to use the Playback plug-in in your concerts.
You start playback by sending a Play command to the Playback plug-in using a screen control, such as a button, mapped to the Play/Stop parameter of the plug-in. To stop playback, you send a Stop command using the same parameter. Alternatively, you can set the plug-in to start when you select the patch or set, or when the Play action is triggered. You can control other parameters of the Playback plug-in while you perform, including the Fade Out and Cycle parameters. If the audio file contains marker information, you can use the Go To Previous Marker and Go To Next Marker parameters to shift playback to different parts of the audio file, or use the Go to Marker action to shift playback to a specific marker.
Note: When mapping a screen control to the Go to Marker action (in the Markers submenu), set both the Button On and Button Off parameters in the Screen Control Inspector to the value of the marker, to ensure that the mapping works correctly.
A Playback plug-in in a patch plays only while the patch is selected. If you are using a Playback plug-in at the set level, you can select different patches in the set (for example, different lead synth or guitar solo patches) and have the audio file continue playing. If you are using a Playback plug-in at the concert level, you can select different patches in the concert and have the audio file continue playing.
