Default action to delay actions till end of bar (i.e. have actions execute on beat!)

i really wish there was an action you could insert at the top of a keyboard macro that would NOT let any actions after it be executed until the end of the current bar.

so for example if you setup a macro like this:
------------------
action 1)WAIT until end of bar
action 2)record/punch out
-----------

you could hit the macro early (before the end of the bar) but it would still punch out on beat (at the end of the bar....very similiar to ABLETON). something like this would really help out the possibilites for live looping. on a sidenote, so far i've come up with this solution (sort of) for live looping....

http://www.cockos.com/forum/showthre...198#post148198

...but since i can't punch out perfectly on beat i had to create extra macros for cleanup etc. a small action like this would be a huge step forward in my eyes...

PLEASE let this happen....!

Any actions linked to musical timing should be very usable.

So 1+ here!

And I could use another action where if the song wasn't recording, yet playing, it would start recording when it reaches the next bar.

with this type of action that i'm talking about (delay actions till end of bar) you could do that!


since we can build our own keyboard macros, having this action available would enable everyone to have their OWN macro's execute at the next bar. and i'm sure lots of people would have lots of different useful ideas/macros if they could execute at the end of the next bar.

please let this happen....!

gone would be the days of the gimped take length if we could create a recording alternate transport stop macro that looked like this:

- wait until end of loop selection or selected item (depending on focus)
- transport stop

+1 from me too.

This might eliminate the need for looper plugins if done properly.

Not only until the end of bar, but 1/2; 1/4; 1/8; 1/16 also.

Default Wow,

big +1 here. Huge part of looping.

Of course, it's not "at end of bar" that would be needed. It's really "at end of next X".

Next beat. Two beats. Bar. Two bars. Four bars. Eight bars. Sixteen bars.

[I see Carbon beat me to it - no pun intended]

This might be something Tim (sws) could do using his "action markers" feature.
