@brunchboy I suspect there's a different command to retrieve an RGB waveform, is that something that might be the case?

That might be, but since I don’t have any nexus 2 players, I won’t be able to sniff it out. We will have to wait until someone can report that. :smile: Are you getting two-byte-per-column, 400-pixel waveform summaries like I have described here, or are you getting the one-byte-per-column, 300-pixel versions you described? If so, what model of players and what firmware are you using? I am using the same request that was in dbstruct.js and seeing the results you see here. I am making huge progress in rewriting the beat-link library to use all this new knowledge, though! The code is getting shorter, more clear, much more understandable and robust, and can already do far more than it could before!

Hmm I'll have to take a look. I do recall the 400px summary being a slightly different format

Yeah, anything you can share about the various preview and waveform formats and how to get them would be interesting. I need to figure out cue grids soon too.

All the stuff for decoding the hotcue/cuepoint and beatgrid stuff should be coded somewhere
Unlike the waveform where I think I coded that somewhere else

Yeah, I got the beat grid down, I just haven’t tried the cue grid yet. I saw some stuff there, and I am hoping I will be able to figure out the difference between hot cues A, B, C, and ordinary memory point cues.
I’ve been on a bit of a detour to implement a nice metadata cache file system, for use in production environments where all four players are in use. That has come along very well.
Your code has been a huge treasure trove. It’s been very bad for my sleep schedule, though! I am going to go back in to work pretty tired tomorrow. ;^)

Heheh
I'm in Arizona, it's sunset right now
And yeah, for my lighting program I've got a button I hit to say "Create scene from loaded track" and it downloads/syncs all the waveform data

Neat! I am spending so much time building these libraries and tools for other people to use I haven’t even had a chance to think about playing with this stuff in afterglow yet.
