Simply track locator position when playing audio file…

March 2, 2013 | 1:26 pm


I would like to play an audio file, and follow the position of the locator during the playing.

The playbar object, allowing me to do that, needs to be "hard-wired" to the sfplay object (can’t be connected via send command, or via inlet/outlet of a subpatch). But in my case I need a copy of the "locatore position bar" of the playbar in a sub-patch.

I looked at the documentation, help files and on the web, but I can’t find a way to easily have the position of the locator during playing…

Could you help please ?

Thank you.

Yeah check out that last patch in that thread with Chris’s fixes and additions. It even allows you to click the progress bar and move playback to another part of the file. Really nice stuff. Thanks again Chris….
