The is the other Phil, not the one who made those folders, but I can answer your question. Phil’s songs are a type of “one-press” or OPB song. Some of us, like myself and Persist, usually put the main song body in the intro when we make these, others, like Phil, put the main song body in the outro.
When the main song body is in the intro, one press of the pedal starts the song playing, it then goes through the full song, and goes into a “null” or empty loop in the Main Loop section of the song. It continues looping doing what seem like nothing, until you double tap to end.
When the main song body is in the outro, the first press starts that endless, empty, null loop. Then, to “play” the song, you double tap to commence the outro, where the song plays one time through and ends.
So, you are doing nothing wrong. That is just how the songs are made.
Are far as it playing without being able to end once it starts, there is a BB setting to enable a “triple tap to end.” This allows for an escape or panic stop if you enable that option.
If you find you prefer the songs that start to play when you press, you can edit Phil’s songs in BB Manager to move the outro to the intro. Depending upon your version of BB Manager and the Operating system you are using, the steps vary. On my Mac I can simple click, hold, and drag, but I know this doesn’t work on all systems.
