I’ve had a couple of times now where pieces were correctly playing loops with synths in, but failing to play loops with samples. I’m using multiple buffers if that’s relevant but I don’t think so.
Restarting Sonic Pi didn’t fix it - I had to reboot the PC. Is there something I can do in the moment to kick it into life e.g. stopping a process in task manager?
I can’t replicate it, it happened out of the blue both times, and it could well just be this PC. But it would be a problem in performance so a workaround tip or guess would be welcome, thanks.
Symptoms: loop with a ‘sample’ statement seems not to run at all, no error messages. Comment out the sample statement, and put in a synth play, it runs. Uncomment the sample statement, fails to run.
