I have a very simple Lua script that simply connects to Jack and loads the session/snapshot I want. It looks like this:
backend = AudioEngine:set_backend("JACK","","")
s = load_session ("/Users/jcrystal/ardour/Test-2020-06-16-10-19-24","snapshot1")
When I run it (via bash), it does everything I’d expect (including beginning to monitor audio), and then immediately quits. Is there a way to cause a luasession to keep alive after a session load?
An infinite while loop just drains my CPU.
You could add
-i, --interactive enter interactive mode after executing 'script',
force the interpreter to run interactively
but that will also fail if you start it without a terminal.
Another option is in the script itself:
ARDOUR.LuaAPI.usleep (-1) -- sleep indefinitely
(or any positive number, in microseconds)
Great suggestions; thank you!
was exactly what I was looking for. Didn’t know about the -1 option!
On second thought I may have confused this with
sleep (0), and
usleep (-1) may only wait for 2^32 μs ~71 minutes.
Then again, you could wrap this in a
while true loop.
