Browse: Files Tab: Auditioning Audio Samples - Fix Behaviour

asked Jun 30, 2020 in Editing by Mittens79 (1,150 points)
When using a combination of mouse and cursor keys for auditioning samples in Studio One Pro, the active field for the cursors reverts to the mixer channels after selecting the play button at the bottom of the Browse: Files Tab.

So, even when selecting a sample in the file window to make the window active (cursor keys work fine up and down in the pane at this point), then clicking on the play button to audition a sample, the cursor keys now revert back to the mixer window (next channel / previous channel) and do not change samples being audtioned.

Currently, a user needs to click back into the pane after activiating the play/audition button before they can use the cursor keys in the window.

It's really frustrating behaviour and slows down selection no end!

Please help.

for me the audio Browser needs to updating to display a visual waveform as often i'm auditioning a file that may only have a few seconds of audio but the actual file could be minutes in length. Currently there's no way to accurately audition the actual audio without blindly clicking.
