A way to auto-stop the playhead at defined point?
Hi; Jean-Philippe from Switzerland here.
Mixing stuff for a performance, was thinking of using Ardour as my multitrack playback device as well - Question: is there a way to auto-stop the playhead at defined point, so I would only have to hit the spacebar when needed to start playing the following one, fire'n'forget style, and can focus on the mixboard instead of the computer?
(No external Midi hardware available, I have access to both Mac and Linux versions, if that makes a difference).
It's for theatre, something where I've got tons of sounds flying around 12 loudspeakers on-cue. Easy with Ardour+external card, but I need my hands to be free to work the FOH console with the wireless mikes on stage. There is no live input/processing, it's strictly playback of HD material.
Workin' on www.lepoche.ch/index2.php?spectaclesID=29&saisonID=4 if anyone is around (and speaks French), you're welcome.
Thanks for your input.
Cheers form my snowy mountains.
