Playback Loop Selection or PLS play in loop the selection in the pattern editor from a key command. It also allows unmarking the selection and greater control of the loop selection. You can also set the selection with the mouse while the PLS is working.
Go to “Renoise/Edit/Preferences/Keys: Pattern Editor:Selection:~ Playback Loop Selection” to link it (suggestion: [CTRL + ALT + L]).
Go to “Renoise/Edit/Preferences/Keys: Pattern Editor:Selection:~ Unmarked Selection” to unmark the selection (suggestion: [SHIFT + CTRL + ALT + L]).
Go to “Renoise/Tools:~ Playback Loop Selection” to configure some options…
The option “~ Turn OFF/PLAY All Other Tracks” is an aggressive way to control the state (OFF/PLAY) of all the tracks. Use it with caution! You can use the mouse pointer to select certain selection areas on the fly and only the tracks wrapped in the selection will sound.
This tool is not highly accurate at very high speeds (BPM and LPB very high). In this extreme case, you can play some line after the selection. It won’t happen with reasonable use of Renoise.
Very useful tool, Raul!
One small bug, after I stop playing using the Space bar I have to hit CTRL+ALT+L twice.
Even smaller bug There is a tooltip text: Start/Stop playback loop seletion. Should be selection.
Thank you for the reply! Final tuning, yes, uh Can we have a new option to catch “Stop playing” Renoise function to deactivate the tool? It is always easier to press just one key (Space) rather than a combination of keys…?
Now with more options. I couldn’t finish the tool without messing with the OFF / PLAY of all the tracks. This allows you to listen to the selection chunks on the fly using the mouse selection. Very useful tool!
