getMediaRecorder(id).wait() (since PennController 1.8)

or getMediaRecorder(id).wait("first")

or getMediaRecorder(id).wait("playback")

Waits for the current (or next) recording to be over.

If you pass “first” and a sample had already been recorded by the time this command gets evaluated and executed, the commands that come next are immediately evaluated and executed. Otherwise, it waits until a recording has finished before evaluating and executing the next commands.

If you pass “playback”, the commands that come next will only be evaluated and executed next time a recording has finished playing back.

You can also pass a test command, in which case the next commands will be evaluated and executed upon completion of a recording while the condition of the test is satisfied. It it is not satisfied, then it will be checked again next time a recording is over.
