Topic: Mic Talk over scripting issue
Hi everyone, can anyone please advise me on a scripting issue please?

Iam using a Numark Platinum FX deck. I want to map the TAP button to activate the mic talk over function. The script below does this, however when I press the TAP button again to release the mic the headphone cue volume remains low and I need to manually adjust the headphone cue gain to bring the volume back up in my headphones. The output volume returns as it should.
Can anyone please check my script and tell me what I am missing?
ps I am not very experienced in writing scripts.
Thanks in advance

mic_talkover while_pressed 30% 1000ms & headphone_volume 2% while_pressed &mic_volume 100%

First of all do you want this to work as a toggle, or as a "while pressed" (gate) function ?
Because it seems to me that you're mixing different techniques

I assume you want a "gate" type effect, so:

mic_talkover 30% 1000ms while_pressed & headphone_volume 2% while_pressed & mic_volume 100% while_pressed

In other words, the "while_pressed" part must always be last
The main issue with your script was "mic_talkover while_pressed 30% 1000ms"

PhantomDeeJay - Many thanks for your reply and advice, I really appreciate your help. Yes i need the gate facility as the switch i was mapping was the TAP button. I will try this out and let you know.
Thank you once again.
