Pausing in Stage Caller


#1

I’m working on a theater show where Qlab is cuing Stage Caller on an iPod to play a song into a bluetooth speaker. Is there any way to have Stage Caller pause that song and know where it left off to continue?

Thanks!

there’s no current method for pausing an action - the only thing you can do is have separate actions with the first half and second half of the audio and make sure the on stage talent is ready for the end of the first half cue…

it doesn’t allow for much in the way of variability, but I’d argue that you could have the second piece of audio start anywhere in the song and the audience wouldn’t notice that it wasn’t continuing from the first cue stop point…

pause is something I’ve considered adding in the past - and it’ll probably make its way into stagecaller2 along with a lot more QLab related OSC commands
