In variable tempo projects, the duplicated audio is different from the source audio when generated using the Hot Spot technique (click-hold-drag the audio from the right middle edge).
- new project, new audio track, new tempo track, ruler set to Time Linear (seconds)
- set tempo at bar 1 to 60, set tempo at bar 2 and subsequent to 240
- record one bar of sound.
- Grab the middle right hot spot and drag right so it is duplicated once.
100% Reproducible Results:
*** The duplicated audio is incomplete, a portion is cut off at the end and not played.
Less than 100% Reproducible, but not infrequent Results:
*** Some of the displayed duplicated audio is not played, even though audio is visible and the play cursor travels across it (I found this to happen with a drum loop as the source audio).
Thanks to folks who helped me troubleshoot and refine this in the main forum.
