I have a Sound consisting of 8 GenericSource sounds feeding an Output8 sound. The Scale for each of the generic sources is a compass point parameter(?) -- i.e. !WNW, !NNW, ... !WSW. The samples are all disk files. I've tried it with both Source set to Disk and Source set to RAM. Playing it from within a compiled sound grid, all is well.
However, when I try using it in a Tool, I get nothing. I've shortened the tool to the bare minimum -- I think -- to get a sound to play. Starting from a New... Edit Tool..., the only thing I've added is:
Global variable Sounds (compiled sound grid) pointing to my PRG file,
wnw (number) Set value options: !WNW Write only
(etc, for each of the 8 variables)
wnw := nnw := ... wsw := 0.5.
Sounds playSoundNamed 'RadiEight'.
A view opens with nothing in it, but no sound plays. What am I missing?
