A quick question about buffer and groove

I’m trying to get a 4 bar loop to play in my patch but it’s not working at all, I’m very new to Max/MSP and i was following a tutorial given to me by my lecturer, the patch is supposed to play a loop and then using the section on the right adjust the pitch and tempo, unfortunately my loop isn’t playing at all!

can you any of you guys have a quick glance at the patch and see what i’m doing wrong? thanks alot i’ll post it up along with the loop which is 130bpm

p.s. i think my loadbang isn’t working either, not too sure why

p.p.s don’t worry about the project name, currently it’s irrelevant to the patch :)

cheers guys!

Read this regarding how to attach your patch.

Assuming that the file “Basic Loop.wav” is somewhere in your search path then all you need to do is connect the [sig~] object to the first inlet of the [groove~] object, turn on the [toggle] and click “startloop”. Have a look at the [groove~] helpfile to get a good understanding of how to make it tick!
