Function to Pause and Continue a table - mgd - 04-08-2021

Hi!

I can stop a running table with '**'. This is fine for tables having their SOURCE set to INT.Tick or even INT.Time

However for tables with SOURCE PTN-SFX I see use cases where it might be desirable to just Pause a table and then continue at a later time w/o touching the position pointer. I suggest '==' for Pause and '++' for Continue.

Kind regards,
Michael

Yep that should be easy to do. Actually I think you could generate the same effect already i think (didn't try myself, but I assume it to work).
Just create a emtpy table and make the source for like automator 7 (if unused/turned off). And set the new table also as a loop. Your main table needs also to be loop, else it would always resynchronize when you call it.
Then just call the new table if you want to pause and get back to the original one if you want to continue. That shouldn't touch the position pointer.
Pause would be more elegant of course.

Thank you for the answer.

I'm currently doing something similar in that I define an empty table set to loop and SOURCE PTN-SFX which I activate. That basically does the job at the expense of a table.

I figured it might be easy Smile

Kind regards,
Michael
