TamTamJam: Recorded microphone slots don't playback

Reported by: HoboPrimate Owned by: Nat
Priority: high Milestone: 8.2.0 (was Update.2)
Component: tamtam-activity Version:
Keywords: relnote? Cc: mstone, olipet, ethrop, gregorio
Action Needed: never set Verified: no
Deployments affected: Blocked By:


Tested in Update.1 702.

I talked to record 4 sounds into the "Microphone slots", with the microphone light appearing on the side of the screen each time. But if I drag the microphone icons to the desktop, and try to play them with loops, no sound comes.

TamTam's csound recording script is trying to write to directories out side of $SAR/{data,tmp,instance}. This should be fixed in TamTam.

Indeed. We are working on a fix, but be aware that given the quite severe limitations on the quantity of data that can be written in $SAR and the compressed formatting means this is not a trivial fix. Depending on when the fix is forthcoming, this may have ot be release-noted as broken.. sadly.

No quotas are currently placed on activity writes to $SAR/{data,tmp,instance}. In present versions of the software, the available RAM is the only limitation on the quantity of data that can be stored in $SAR/tmp. (This was not formerly the case but was changed in response to criticism which suggested that we had introduced hard bugs in Read as a result of limiting the size of the tmpfs). In the future, activities may be able to specify their own quotas and tmpfs bounds.

Hi Guys,

Is this resolved? Is anyone working on it?

Has anyone tested TamTam with 8.2.0 (e.g. joyride 2129 or later)?
