Audio - Possible to start Playback from a specific Time?

Postby Shando » 19 Mar 2022, 05:35

Hi all,

Just wondering if there are any commands to allow 'jumping around' in an audio file?

For example, I would like to be able to do the following:

1. Forward 10 secs on the press of a button
2. Rewind 10 secs on the press of a button
3. Jump to a specific time in the audio track on the press of a button

I'm trying to create a simple music player as part of a music game I'm trying to put together and would like to provide the player with the ability to change the current playback point of the file.



PS: Yes, I know, yet another game I've started :) This is a fairly simple one where the player runs around collecting the Stems of a song and then has to put the Stems against the correct song. I've wanted to do this for years, but could never find software that would allow me to extract the Stems from normal mp3s and still get them to sound ok :( A few weeks ago I came across RipX that actually does a pretty decent job (even on live recordings!) in splitting songs into Bass, Drums, Vocals and 'everything else' (guitars, keyboards, harmonica etc.). Obviously not something I could release without permission from all the rights holders, but a fun project nonetheless :mrgreen:
