Heh, they should have called that check box "Don't play on loop of
segment".

Hey Ciaran, that feature basically makes it so the wave won't get =3D
retriggered on a loop of the segment.  I think the ideal usage is to =3D
make the actual wave loop (not the instance in the segment).  Then drop
=3D
the wave into the wave track (the order is important here for some =3D
reason).  Then, in the wave instance's properties go to the wave tab and
=3D
unlock length.  Now you can set the length to be way longer than the =3D
*wave file* actually is.  It will loop as long as it hasn't reached the
=3D
duration in the "length" box.  If you set length to be longer than the =
=3D
*segment* or the looped section of the segment, it won't get reset, =3D
it'll just keep looping until it finishes playing.  Kinda weird I =3D
guess.....but it solves the issue where if you change tempos the wave =
=3D
starts looping improperly.  Yeah, that's the point of that feature :) =
=3D
tempo changes.  Looks like there's no way to loop it infinitely =3D
though...

CCing freelists in case it works for me.

Hope that helps!

Hi Scott,
=3DA0
I posted to the DM group as well but it doesn't seem to have come =3D
through yet so I thought I'd ask you direct. Do you know what the "Loop
=3D
Independent of Segment" checkbox (on the performance tab in wave =3D
properties for a wave in a segment) does? It's not in the help and it's
=3D
not immediately apparent what it does by checking it and playing around
=3D
with the segment.
=3DA0
If you're able to shed any light on it I'd be very grateful,
Ciaran
