I know that pause at the beginning is caused by the prop command. & and AND commands don’t work with the @add command so…
I’m a bit bummed out by it. is it possible to avoid that short pause?

The pause most likely isn’t caused by the prop command. Add prop commands are 0 beats

Can you post your script so I can see what the issue is? (your screenshot is a bit hard to read)

sure :slight_smile:

You have a “then” hidden in your code. This is causing that pause. Change it to “and”

thanks!! that was it
