PlaLa Address Modifier

Do you have questions about PlaLa? Please write directly below the post in the comment function. Our general customer service cannot provide developer support for PlaLa.

Addresses

The address of a title that hörbert plays is made up of: Page, Playlist, Title, (Byte)Position. Each of these values starts at 0 (zero). Pages will only be supported in a future firmware version. Until then, only page 0 (zero) will be used for addresses.

  • Each page can contain 9 playlists
  • Each playlist can contain up to 65534 tracks
  • Each audio file can be up to 2GB in size

The address of the first byte of the 5th track in the 3rd playlist of the 1st page is therefore: 0.2.4.0 Addres modifiers are used to jump to other titles via PlaLa. For example, there is an address modifier that determines what should be played after switching hörbert on. There is an address modifier for each of 5 external buttons, which determines the function of the respective buttons.

Address modifier

Address modifiers look like addresses and affect the individual sections: page, playlist, title and (byte)position. An address modifier always affects the address of the currently playing title. Each section of the current address can be retained, modified relatively or absolutely, or randomised.

Example of an address modifier that does not change anything:
*.*.*.*

Address modifier that jumps to position 0 in the first title of the 5th playlist of the current page
*.4.0.0

Address modifier that plays the next track of the current playlist from the beginning:
*.*.+1.0

Address modifier that jumps back two titles in the current playlist. Attention: The jump can also go too far back over 0 and then land e.g. at title index 60000 in the same playlist.
*.*.-2.0

Address modifier that plays any title between 0 and 5 of the current playlist from the beginning:
*.*.[0..5].0

Address modifier that plays any of the next 5 tracks of the current playlist from the beginning:
*.*.+[0..4].0

Address modifier that jumps to a track from a list and plays it from the beginning:
*.*.(1,2,5,8,99).0
