|Summary||0001759: Permanent Shuttle Speed|
|Description||Request for a third wheel mode.|
The way it works now, is that wheel mode will reset if you stop or start playing from another position.
This request is for a mode to set the shuttle speed permanent, so that it doesn't reset no matter what.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I have often thought that the shuttle control is actually two features in one, a shuttle control and a vari-speed control. Sometimes you may want to shuttle the playhead backwards and forwards at varying speeds that has nothing to do with setting playback speed in % or st steps. On the other hand you may want to set the playback speed (which stays set through transport changes) in % or st steps. I think these 2 features are independent and should be implemented as such, what if I want to set a vari-speed value for playback and then use the shuttle to locate the playhead, currently you cant.
What b0ef wants (correct me if I'm wrong), is a vari-speed control as I've defined it.
Vari-speed is about applying an offset to play speed in semi-tones or cents.
Shuttle is a control to locate the playhead at varying speeds.
One should not affect the other.
