So few lines when you know how. Thank you so much for that. There was
one warning about a "Carla assertion failure":

 "strBuf != nullptr" in file ../../utils/CarlaUtils.hpp, line 370

A couple of arguments to it would make it perfect, if you have time.

Just file name and transport position would do.

Thanks again, John.
