This is still driving me nuts. I tried setting the overall playloudness, and displaying that value in a field in the standalone. On Windows it reports 0, but still plays the click at the pre set play loudness level.
Has no one else encountered this or similar?

> I have a ‘click' audio clip that typically is played once only in any one use of the software, as a sort of 'captured data’ indicator in response to an on screen button. That meant that the slight delay in first playing an audio clip was always noticeable for users.
> To get around this, I used this script to play silently once on opencard, and then the ‘real’ click would not be laggy.
> On opencard
> set the playloudness of audioclip “click.aiff” to zero
> play audioclip “click.aiff”
> set the playloudness of audioclip “click.aiff” to 50
> –– not sure this setting is retained, but hey ho.
> end opencard
> This works fine in the ide and in Mac standadalone. No click, and no lag when the click is needed for real.
> On Windows (10 and Vista tested so far) standalone the click is not muted, but plays at the OS volume setting.
> I have looked through the docs and forums, but can’t see anything relevant. Any ideas?
> Developing on Mac OS 10.12, LC 7.1.3
