FR: Play-back pass selector

Feature request:

When playing from between repeat signs, I’d like to have a little something in the transport window to choose whether to play the 1st or 2nd (or n-th…) pass.

IIRC this kind of thing is already planned down the road(map). No time frame yet announced.

I’ll put in my 2¢ for missing this feature from Sib and hoping to see it in DP.

There are some improvements to repeats planned for the next (imminent) update. Perhaps it will be included?

No, you won’t easily be able to choose which pass to start playback from in the coming update, I’m afraid, but I agree it’s something that would be useful to have and I’m sure we will add it at some point.

Does this exist in 5.1 yet?

It does not.

I think it’s a fairly urgent feature request at this point TBH.
Since music can be set to play only on a specific pass, it makes it cumbersome and slow to review anything which isn’t set for the first pass.
What do people do for a workaround?

Everybody has their “urgent” requests. :wink:

I can’t think of a workaround.

I start the music with P at the very end of the first repeat to cut out as much as possible. Would that there were a more efficient way (especially for repeats beyond 2) but like everyone else, I just have to wait until the feature can be added.

Right, that’s what I’m doing at this point. But it’s a real waste of time.
