buffer~

September 12, 2008 | 8:15 pm

Does anyone know is it possible to refresh a sound file in the buffer~ object without actually renaming the file name in the object? Or is there any alternativw objects or methods for doing this?

readagain message? (I’m not 100% sure what you’re after here)

By renaming the object do you mean sending the message "replace [/filepath/]" ?

You probably know you can load multiple buffers and use the "set
[this]" in some objects like groove~.

Sorry if that didn’t make sense it did in my head.
What i’m trying to do is record something in my patch (using sfrecord~ ) and save it under the same name that the buffer object is reading from. So if i rerecord that sound file under the same name the buffer will be updated with the sound file as it changes.

"set" is a nice message. buffer likes it.
If you have the sound files in the same folder with your patch works fine.
if this is an answer to your question.

the buffer will not automatically be updated as it just copies the file
to RAM when it receives the right message and wont care about any
changes to the file afterwards. use record~ (or xrecord~ which is part
of xsample from http://grrrr.org/ext/beta/max/)

Hi,

I’d use a record~/ buffer~ combination, if I’d like to update recording. You can check also Buffer~ reference for some messages to export or modify.

Also using record~ in loop mode may help you.

I hope I didn’t misunderstand your problem :)

Best,

Mehmet

Why not recording with record~ directly into the buffer~ and then saving
the buffer?…

But still, you can trigger in the moment you stop recording into
sfrecord~ a read message to buffer~…
