I noticed that when inside the Scaler interface and using playback in loop mode, the playback stops when selecting a different pattern. This occurs when selecting a pattern button (Pattern 2) with the mouse as well as when using a Navigate To Pattern Command Mapping.
I would be great to be able to move between patterns and keep playback in time like you can do when changing performance settings.
Just tried this in Reaper (on Windows 10)and found that it could be an issue, but if I set looping on and bind the patterns, then the playback does not stop when I use the binded key switches to switch between patterns.
Also it does not appear to be an issue if I use midi output from another plugin, such as Stochas, to send key switching notes into Scaler.
I wonder if it is a (for me relatively minor) bug that playback stops if you simply use the mouse to choose your pattern.
Tried a couple key switch experiments and found that it does seem specifically related to the two use cases I mentioned (mouse click to select a pattern and Navigate to Command Mapping)
The green Scaler key switches in the UI work perfectly with both a mouse click and via a midi controller trigger.
As you thought, it must just be a little UI bug so this gives me a work around. Thanks a ton.
Well spotted. I agree that whilst it may be a small use case I think it should maintain playback like you stated. It is not necessarily a bug but I believe it should be a feature. I will lodge this request with the development team. Thanks for your input!
