I'm by no means a sound guy, but if you want to playback sound cues from your man, you can just put ur cues into itunes and click the playbutton when you need the cue to start. This may not be what you want though.
Except that they keep playing until you stop them. I did it once(with a remote thank god)after my 5 disc DVD/CD changer took a nasty spill and broke it's carousel. It was really annoying having to constantly see how long was left so I could stop it at the right time.
Hi Chris, good to see you here. For those who don't know, Chris Ashworth is the man behind QLab. He's also very responsive to issues/problems you encounter with QLab - check out the support tab on his website for information on how to get in touch.
I'll third (or fourth or fifth?) the recommendation for Qlab.
By the way, a work-around for iTunes playing on and on after your track has finished: uncheck all the boxes in front of the track names in the playlist you're using. You have to double-click to start a track, but it won't play the next track in the list until you double-click that one. I like to play tracks out of iTunes while developing sounds/music on my laptop before I dump them into my playback system.
Are you asking if there are plans to port QLab to Windows?
If so, the answer is that QLab is very closely woven in with OS X, so there are currently no plans to move to other platforms as it would mean rewriting most of the program. While it's a bummer for the Windows folks, integrating closely with OS X allows me to prototype new features much more quickly, and makes it possible to leverage key technologies such as CoreAudio, Quartz Composer, and the Quicktime QTKit API.
When Apple released 10.4, they committed to making no more API changes that would break existing software. So assuming they stick to that promise I shouldn't have to do anything for Leopard. Because I plan to maintain 10.4 compatability, I am also not rushing to add anything that relies on 10.5. I'm certainly excited to check out the new APIs, however. If it makes sense to add features that will only work for 10.5 users, I'll surely consider it.
