I'm using W7 and also have the Mic Vis C++ 2013 installed.
Hi,

Is there a newer 32bit version for the installer, which doesn't generates error messages during the installation process ?

Yes, exactly. Different velocities create different colors (at least on Launchpad and Orbit).

This should be fixed in 1.1.0. At least on Windows XP the errors are gone. Please let me know if it still doesn't work. Thx.

I didn't test on Vista. Other users reported that installation is still possible if you just always press okay when the error messages appear. Did you try the latest 1.1.0 installer? I made some fixes that removed this kind of error at least on Windows XP.

If it works on Vista, please let me know.

That way I can get the main idea, and after the project tempo is set based on that, other audio/midi loops can be imported and timed correctly.
That sounds very useful to me. One major challenge I see here is that the recorded loop has to be cut (start and end) very precisely so the detected tempo makes sense.

I'm planning to provide a project template that get's one started very quickly, tracks already set up. Other than that, can you describe the workflow problems you see? Playtime is in active development, so its future is still shaping. You might be surprised what can be done with just a plugin

Do you mean after recording, depending on when the recording is started and stopped or the actual musical content?

Sure. Just do it the REAPER way and select MIDI as recording input for that track.

There could be several reasons:

- Reason 1: Maybe your Playtime track not only contains Playtime VST but also another synth. This kind of setup is not intended. Just remove the synth.
- Reason 2: Maybe you have another track which has set QuNeo as MIDI input as well? In that case, just choose another MIDI input device for it (or another MIDI channel) ... it's all about routing.

I am using a Quneo to trigger MIDI clips, but now I need to stop the playing every time I trigger a clip from another group... Otherwise like this with immediate switching of loops it would be possible to create really fluid leadlines, especially with an arpeggiator behind, that can change the rhythms too...
Nice idea. Haven't thought of this. #69

Did you try the things described in section "Visual feedback with Launchpad and Co." of the user guide? I don't know the QuNeo but chances are it's working similar to Novation Launchpad. If yes, setting the MIDI hardware output of the Playtime track to your QuNeo should do it.

Installed it to test it - but Reaper can't find the track template.
Tried reinstalling twice.

I'm on a mac. I wonder if this is because my user folder is on another drive? (i.e. not system drive)

launchpads LED control == midi created when pressing the buttons.

quneo uses a different, more complex method of controlling LEDs depending on what mode the device is in.

see page 33 and 34 of http://files.keithmcmillen.com/downl...Manual_1.1.pdf

this is where end users are going to have to be expected to do some work on their side via bidule or JS...it's not worth your time or money to buy every midi controller with LEDs in existence and code it into Playtime. better to spend your time on the direct functionality in my opinion. and i say that as a quneo user myself.

Everything about the QuNeo is more complex amirite?

Did you set up a custom mapping for QuNeo and Playtime? I'm using Preset 9 "Ableton Live Clip Launching". Using the pad corners to launch clips and scenes.

nah i use the quneo exclusively for drums, transport control and control changes. i use a mode in my custom launchpad setup for playtime. it replaced the MPC1000 in my studio configuration when i switched from a hardware sequencer to REAPER's arrange/midi sequencer.

i think there's a quneo launchpad emulator. that may well be what you're referring to.

and yes, everything is more complex with quneo...unfortunately, due to the different LED triggering methods, it needs to be. i really wish the quneo editor was better. it's like building a ship in a bottle.

quneo is one of those terrific platforms that didn't blow up as much as it needed to in order to get the development it shouldve

Where is you REAPER settings folder? The Mac installer expects it at "/Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/REAPER" and puts the file "Playtime.RTrackTemplate" into its sub folder "TrackTemplates".

First one. I'd like to use the hold pedal to toggle recording on and off for the selected cell to quickly create layers of sounds that would play in time, no matter if I suddenly feel inspired to put some 7/8 stuff in there.

So yeah, instead of having everything snap to whole note grid, it would be more useful if it also recognized subdivisions for recorded items, and stretched them accordingly to the closest probable length.

Yeah, it wasn't there.

I logged into my other account which IS on the system drive, and it installed the template with no problem. I copied that to my "normal" account's tracktemplates library and now it works.

For me the whole benefit of the Ableton type version is to be able to record or mouse in notes inside your clips and then trigger them after. The clips are a totally separate area where you can compose little parts. And then put them together later. This seems to be all on the main timeline and not inside cells that can be drag and dropped and or recorded into the project after?

If we could have a separate workspace where we can punch in and record different ideas and then drag and drop them into the main project later on.. That would allow me to work only in Reaper.

Either way.. This is super awesome to have in Reaper! Thanks for all the hard work. I will buy a copy soon.

The Trigger and Untrigger Mode also applies to recording. You can set these to "Next Beat" instead of "Next Measure" (for all slots or just particular ones). If you do that and record a slot, the recording is cut on the closest beat instead of the closest measure. With that you could achieve crazy 7/8 stuff Playtime doesn't look at the musical content of the clips though. It just recognizes the points in time at which you started and stopped recording.

Release 1.2.0 should enable you to do the thing with the hold pedal.

Interested to see what else is in 1.2, and hope eventually to see some of my suggestions from post #136 based on the Mobius and Echoplex loopers considered.

I'm looking into getting a used Launchpad or other dedicated controller to take best advantage of Playtime.

I gave the new version a try. A couple of observations:
- Playtime needs separate settings for triggering and recording modes. Maybe separate settings for different instruments/columns too.
- Using "immediate" recording toggle, the recorded items don't sync up with the grid. Could Playtime offer an option to automatically stretch them to the correct length?
- Looped items tend to have clicks in them. This is a "feature" of Reaper, as you can't set fades for loop seams, but could Playtime offer an option to render a certain amount of fade in/fade out into the recorded item?
- Could use an option in the preferences to map the global record cc, instead of having to go to the track's envelope window
- Got a crash in the end, can't remember how to replicate though. :P

Ben could you please explain how this works? I cant see a global button to map to! (V1.2.0)

Thanks
Jed

EDIT: Found it in the list of automatable parameters for the VST. However when recording into a slot using it, the resulting clip should automatically appear in the slot once the recording is complete (as per Live) and then start playing.

Small steps!

Cheers
Jed

Hi, I need help. I'm trying to trigger audio loops and samples with using next beat trigger mode but I always get clicks between samples and false sync. What am I doing wrong?
Edit :
Solved... It is not related with playtime. It's about bad drivers's of focusrite scarlet soundcard. I changed the soundcard with motu 828mkIII with same latency settings and there we go.. no problem.

It seems that Playtime doesn't take changing tempo into account?

Only when I started adding audio loops I noticed this...

I am building a live set based on several instances of Playtime a lot now, and this is a big problem, since different tunes have different tempo.

I see that it might be unpractical to have this realtime, but how about even a "calibrate" button that would calculate all playback rate values again for the loops?

Please consider this question!

Also I can report that now the 32 bit Win7 installer works without the error messages.

Also, the preset handling is bugged somehow.

Once all my loops (I had 48 MIDI loops in the only instance) were randomly placed for all pads. I mean, literally.

Now a strangest thing happened: after adding another instance of Playtime and saving a few times, the MIDI loops in the original instance were mirrored 1:1. So the last loops was now in the first pad, and the first in the last, and so on for all the loops.

I had saved the original preset, but now that I load it, a few of the slots are empty, altough all the files are in place on my memory stick where the project runs from.

Hi, I'm using Playtime with Launchpad. When I put a clip on Playtime, Launchpad responds with only red color to show that there is a clip on that pad. I wonder if there is a way to use different colors for different pads on launchpad.

I know the velocity thing but :

How can I do that ? By default Playtime generates note on messages which has velocity of 1 to the midi out.That lights a red color on corresponding pad. So I think after Playtime I have to insert a midi plugin to change that velocity.

I think I need a plugin that changes a note's velocity value to a user defined velocity value.

example:
if the velocity of C1 is 1 than then change the velocity of C1 to 100
if the velocity of D2 is 1 than then change the velocity of D2 to 70
....

Am I wrong ? Could you help me on that ?

try multiple instances of JS - velocity control after Playtime instances.

here's a handy list of values:

I got it and it works thanks.
But in my situation, I use 2 launchpads which makes 128 pads and 128 velocity control JS.
I just want to make some steady color patterns on launchpad which will make my life easier when playing live.It's really hard to memorize pads for me. Please check my videos on my signature and you'll get it.

Thanks again

On Playtime's website you can find the changelog and roadmap for Playtime (at the very bottom).

This is intended. "Immediately" means there's no alignment. If you want alignment, choose "Next Beat" or "Next Measure". Or are you talking about something inbetween? An exact description of what you want to achieve would be useful.

This can happen if you record audio and suddenly stop recording while you still have an input signal. How would you do adjust the loop in REAPER itself to make it seemless, without clicks? I guess I would record a little bit more than necessary at the beginning and the end of the loop and then somehow make a crossfade between the end and the beginning and take the result as the loop.

I'd like to leave the things which can be easily done in REAPER to REAPER. I still need to document it though.

Any chance you can still gather the fault module and offset as described here in section "Post error/crash messages!"?

The recording should automatically appear in the slot after stopping recording using automation "Record Active Slot". If not, it might be a bug. Doesn't it appear in your case? The "then start playing" part is another feature ticket (#2 Play clip as soon as recorded). See roadmap.

Amazing! Thanks!

Only when I started adding audio loops I noticed this...

I am building a live set based on several instances of Playtime a lot now, and this is a big problem, since different tunes have different tempo.

I see that it might be unpractical to have this realtime, but how about even a "calibrate" button that would calculate all playback rate values again for the loops?
Thanks for spotting this. I hope to look into this soon. Ticket is here.

I had saved the original preset, but now that I load it, a few of the slots are empty, altough all the files are in place on my memory stick where the project runs from.
Are you talking about "presets" as in REAPER's FX presets?:

If yes, this is not officially supported by now. It might work by some extent.

Also, if you have several instances of Playtime running in the same project, try not to let them make use of the same items and it should be fine. Items should not disappear then. If you let them share items, it can happen. Note that "not sharing" items doesn't mean you cannot make use of the same audio/MIDI content. You actually can, using standard REAPER features (just duplicate the item, for MIDI you need to look into "pooled MIDI items")

I plan to add an option in future that copies the item when filled into a slot instead of moving it. That should make it much harder to actually share items between several instances.

There's no built-in way to do that. nym's suggestion should work. In future, I maybe will add limited support for this because it would also help to make Playtime compatible with Launchpad-similar controllers that just have different lights on different velocities (like the Akai APC40 for example).

in REAPER, i usually record more than necessary at the end rather than the beginning. this way it lines up better on REAPER's timeline grid and items are easier to move.

we're talking about a couple MS here just to avoid the click. otherwise you start to potentially lose the transient on the new instance of the file.

mehmethan, you're very quickly going to outgrow REAPER's native midi handling. you should look into Bidule. i use it to stitch multiple controllers into 1 coherent system. follow this thread for a starter. http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=132383

Preset problems:
Yes I was talking about Reaper's internal preset management... But this has to be made 100% funcional, since isn't it basically the same thing as correctly saving/loading tunes with Playtime correctly? Or do they use a different system for managing plugin data? Since I also recall that once it happpened that a project had mixed up data for Playtime when I loaded it.. But now can't reacall for sure.

How about determining an item's playback speed only at the time it's triggered instead of when it's imported? Shouldn't this work to keep the items in sync with tempo?

Also, when importing some breakbeats, some of them were imported at 50% the intended value, altough they were from the same set of beats. I don't know though, how could this made more intelligent since Playtime can't know how many beats long the loop is meant to be originally. How is this determined now?

You're right, it's basically the same mechanism as saving/loading REAPER projects. The number of cases that Playtime needs to handle is different though. If you change a preset, it can happen that the items referenced in that preset don't exist anymore because the project has changed since the preset was last modified. That kind of thing can't happen if you just save and load the REAPER project. I haven't experienced mixed up data on project load yet but I will have an eye on it. Please let me know if it occurs. A sample project would help in that case.

That might do it. I added your idea as issue comment.

Currently, it uses REAPER's native logic to determine the playrate.

Hi Helgoboss,
Today I had a major problem with Playtime. All my 6 hours of work dissappeared... I started a project using playtime. (4 Playtime on different tracks & 2 launchpads). Everthing was going normal. I was using playtime to trigger audio loops & samples and I was creating my live setup. I think 2-3 hours later playtime started to forget clips .I inserted items to playtime again but later playtime forgets the items. I saved project and started reaper again. Still same problem.I reinstalled playtime I configured again. No way... Every sample & and loop I've used are in the project directory. There is a big problem there. I also tried to save my setup as preset. But It still cannot find the items later.

Could you please help me ? (win 8.1 reaper 4.75 playtime 1.2- if it is neccessary I can send you my reaper project,too)
