I’m a big fan of using ALT+SPACE to listen to the currently selected events, notes, audio or whatever. It really helps me to audition the part I’m working on.
I noticed a strange behaviour, though.
- Create a midi track and make it for example 2 measures long.
- Now set the loop markers to something INSIDE the previous measure, for example from 1.2.1 to 1.3.1. Be sure to turn on the cycle.
- Having selected the event (which should be 2 measures long) now play it by pressing ALT+SPACE.
You will notice that the part plays OK until it finds the end of the cycle, which makes it repeat for as long as the event length.
