hi Pete,

I don't see why it shouldn't work. I already have my own INI files in a folder so that if Samplitude changes anything, I can reload mine instantly. So if you have two sets of files, one with your name, and one with your wife's name, all you need to do is paste The ones you need in Samplitude's folder.

best,

JPR

I think all instances of Samplitude share the same ini files in the Program Data directory.

The reason I let my wife run Samplitude during interviews and the reason she likes to have all tracks visible at once is so that she can monitor the waveforms to make sure we are recording. We’ve caught issues this way before.

I guess if we have to keep swapping around ini files I will.  I actually created some bat files to do that automatically, but I would like to have this just work.

Hi

Here’s a further idea, why not load up a second instance of Samplitude, if possible,  which can be configured for sighted use.  This would negate the need to keep loading up ini files.

Hi

Here’s a radical idea, may be our sighted friends and partners need to adjust to how we work, and not the other way round. Steve has developed the scripts in a way which means Samplitude has to be set in a particular way.  This is a limitation set down by how the scripts work.  Trying to work outside of these parameters will cause the scripts to stop working at their optimum.

Hi Pete,

I am not a scripter, but I suppose your situation is not compatible with the way Samplitude script work.

I would suggest the following.

 1. Locate the folder where your Samplitude INI files are, create a
    shortcut for this folder, and place it on your desktop so you can
    access it quickly.
 2. Copy the seven INI files this folder contains for each workflow,
    you using the scripts as normal, and you doing an interview with
    your wife having to see the four tracks. In each case, paste them
    in a conveniently placed and named folder.
 3. Each time you will need one of these workflows, open One of these,
    copy its contents to your clipboard, and paste it to your
    Samplitude INI files folder, the one you created a shortcut for.

I tell you, it Will take you 30 seconds to change your workflow in Samplitude, and I don't
see anything quicker.
Best,
JPR

    I occasionally have my sighted wife run Samplitude when we are
    recording an interview for eyes On success.

    We record interviews with three tracks: one microphone for each of
    us and one track for the Zoom connection.  So I would like to have
    4 tracks visible on the screen at once.

    The problem is that she can only see and monitor one track on the
    screen at a time the way I have Samplitude configured to use the
    scripts.  For a blind user this is no problem since we can only
    “see” one track at a time and just arrow down to see more. 
    Anyway, somehow she then manages to modify the screen so that all
    tracks are visible to her plus the Master track.  Then when I go
    back and try to use the scripts to edit the interview, the scripts
    don’t seem to work.

    Question #1: What is the best solution for this?  I’ve been
    copying back my ini files after each time she uses Samplitude but
    it seems there ought to be a better way.

    Question #2: I’ve been trying to create a template that shows all
    tracks on the screen.  I couldn’t find any keystrokes in the
    keystrokes documentation that seemed to be able to help me here.
    What I was looking for is:

      * A way to show more tracks. And/or control which tracks are
        visible at the same time in the VIP
      * A way for the scripts to tell me which tracks are visible. 
        The Control+T keystroke only seems to work in the track
        manager but not the VIP, so I can’t tell what is showing in
        the VIP.

    Thanks for any advice.

    --Pete
