Instru duration

Ok, I know I’m not crazy, but did the method for creating an “always on” instr from a score change or something? Whenever I give an instr a negative duration, it only executes the init pass. But if I give the same instr a known duration (positive value), it functions normally within that duration.


I can’t say. I’ve never used that method, I typically use z to denote an always on instrument in the score. But if this has changed, it might be worth mentioning in the github tracker?

Huh, tried ‘z’ and it works. Guess I’ll try submitting a question to the Csound list and see if this actually has changed.

Turns out that I forgot to include the following statement in the score…

f0 z
