Probably an obvious question, but is it possible to sync loops across buffers? Or does buffer 0’s live loop not recognize buffer 1’s live loop?
I think live_loops are accessible globally. I have done this before for programs too large for one buffer. Run live_loops in one and access them from another. (Just make sure that any variables required in both are stored using set).
I just tried it and it works.
So it’s now a matter of teaching my students how to sync one loop to another.
A buffer can handle about 250 lines of code… you’re recreating Holst’s The Planets, maybe?
I frequently run out of buffer space with my linear coded classical pieces. I usually use run_file to overcome this.
Of course you do Robin… but I’d expect -you- to be trying to get SP to play the whole Planets Suite.
I’m simply suprised that someone who has students to teach, has the need for mutliple buffer techniques,
most I would say, get by on single buffers.
And please note the ’ ’ … I’m being a bit cheeky I know, but thats me
I think that my students get confused when they have to do too much scrolling from top to bottom. They seem to like neater categories…
nod A perfectly reasonable answer and I hope your teaching goes well.
Ok That would take a very long file indeed.
I find multiple buffers really useful. It allows me to split things up based on function and avoid confusing my tiny little mind.
Thanks! Learning more all the time, so that usually translates to better learning for my students.
