Summary0008358: Ardour will play selected MIDI notes on project load (if enabled)
DescriptionOften when I load an Ardour session I hear a MIDI note (or notes) play immediately.

Of course it's only going to happen when the "Sound MIDI notes as they are being selected in the editor" is enabled (which I do enable always).

I've captured a video showing this happening over and over in different situations:

I'm also attaching the Ardour 6.2 session shown in the video. Can anyone reproduce this?

At first I thought it's only if I save the session in Edit Mode - but no.
I thought maybe it happens only if last selected track was MIDI - no, with selected audio track it seems to happen too.

I wonder what could be the cause of this?

Selection is being restored on session load. the instant.xml of the linked session has the following XML:
      <MIDINotes region-id="5927">
        <note note-id="21266"/>

Could Ardour omit playing back the selected notes after restoring the selection during session load?

Fixed in Ardour 6.2-157-g4ad1c19166

    This adds a few exceptions to the general preference
    "Sound MIDI notes as they are being selected in the editor".
    * Select all no longer plays _all_ notes.
    * Remain silent when selection is inverted or a range is selected.
    * Play no sound when a saved selection is restored on session load.
