FS#8218 - Playback stops when metronome starts

When I start the metronome, music playback stops. You said that music playback could run concurrently with plugins. Thanks.

yes, music can run when plugins are running… but only if the plugin doesnt need to audio hardware (or the pcm buffer)

No, it can’t since it uses the PCM hardware directly. Metronome could use the voice channel but the plugin would have to be converted to pass a continuous stream (including sending silence between long ticks) over to the pcm buffer rather than relying solely on a timer and pcm_play_data to do everything. Relying on mixing to get it there without alot of jitter if naiively sending the tick clip will be frustrating.

But chessbox works fine. I can hear the forster sisters while playing chess.
