Sujet Possible to activate an effect for a number of beats?
Hello, is it possible to activate an effect for e.g. 4 beats and then switch to another effect for another 4 beats? I found some "repeat" verbs but they all seem to work time-based, not beat-based... Thanks for any suggestions!

locodog has created plugings that can help with with timing scripts on beats instead of (mili)seconds, so he can probably help you out

basically it is a rsi script activate the plugin count beats and desactivate plugin
example modius for 16 beats :
repeat_start rptbeats ? repeat_stop rptbeats : set cbeats 16 & effect_active mobius & repeat_start_instant rptbeats 44ms -1 & get_beat_counter & param_cast frac & param_equal 0.0 ? cycle cbeats -1 & var cbeats 0 ? repeat_stop rptbeats & effect_active mobius off

a small different example activate the effect in slot 1 for 12 beats , flashing while active
repeat_start rptbeats ? blink & repeat_stop rptbeats : set cbeats 12 & effect_active on & repeat_start_instant rptbeats 44ms -1 & get_beat_counter & param_cast frac & param_equal 0.0 ? cycle cbeats -1 & var cbeats 0 ? repeat_stop rptbeats & effect_active off & lock_panel

Maybe it's time to politely ask for an enhancement to the repeat scripts so that you can also use it with beats, and not just ms...

yes very good idea
in fact a simple way to do ms & count easily would be
repeat_start xxx 16beats & ....
no need of repeat time or count, and can be passed as a parameter

Yes... I'm not sure if it's simple to implement... But lets leave it to the devs to worry about that :)

two ways of thinking when it comes to RSIs over beats
branch 1 is beats measured in time.
branch 2 is beats measured against a position.

each has pros&cons, each has a use.
