First, I don't want to use Timeline, because I understand it even less than the Sound prototypes and have even less of a clue as to how integrate it into my Python OSC code.
So. With that caveat out of the way: I want my Python code to send an OSC message to change the start times of 16 samples, relative to the time when a button is pushed in the UI generated by the Python code. I don't want to change the duration of the samples, or anything else in my current sound. I just want to add in a different "wait", or "sleep" for the onset of each sample's playback.
The start time is in seconds, and is read from a JSON file produced by an editor I've written.
The samples are coming from files listed in 16 MultiSample Sounds. They are all of different lengths, and set to loop.
I had hoped it would be something like "default" for the duration and "!Whatever s" for a hot value for number of seconds. But, alas, it appears it is not so.
