This has been fixed. There are a couple of issues here. First, the assumption that selecting a time in the combo box means that Measure will sample for that period of time and stop is a bad assumption. Selecting a time actually means that a sample will be taken continually at the end of the duration, until the user clicks the stop recording button. However, if the Now is selected, it means take a single snapshot when the Record button is pressed.

We changed the text on the combo box items to be more clear and added more descriptive tool tips to the record button. We also cleaned up the audio sampling toolbar.

Finally, we noticed that the time was not correct, depending upon the processor so we added a timer thread to determine when to log the sample.

We reproduced the problem on version 29 and version 30. As of version 30 on the XO1.5, it seems to be fixed.

Please see (the latest version of Version 30). Should be able to test it on the XO 1.0 too.
