Can anybody tell me how long the max. length of buffer~ object is ?
I tried to load a audifole wir 1h50min and got the message "out of menory"
is there a work around to load long audiofiles ?
thank you Vanille
sorry, but i dont get your 44100*32*6600 example.
sfplay can play files with 1h50min.
but i would like to "edit" the file with waveform~
I attached my editor:
A buffer~ is based on RAM.
Basically, if the buffer size exceeds the amount of free RAM you have available, you won’t be able to load it into your RAM. In such a case (and in general with long files), the recommended method is to use sfplay~.
You should consider that Max is not really meant as a standalone editing platform for audio such as Audacity, Peak, etc.
|44100*6600*32 = 9 313 920 000 Bytes = 9.3 GB,|
This calculation is correct on OSX v10.6. Otherwise 9 313 920 000 should be divided by 1024 x 1024 x 1024 and you’ll get to a little lower 8.67 GB. In the case of mono.
Thank you all.
Thanks for the math tutoring.
Of course i know that Max is not Protools.
For the Applikation i´m building it would be very helpfull to have very basic (cut, crop, save file) edit functions for non-audioexperts.
I have 4GB of RAM. in my MacBook.
So this should be enough to load a File with 1GB.
If somebody wants to see my (not finished) Applikation, and give me some feedback:
btw. why 6600sec. ?

(44100 hz , 6600 seconds, 32 Bytes).
I think you meant bit, not byte.
32 bits = 4 bytes
|1024 x 1024 x 1024 ? can you explain ?|
Read it here, especially the portion on consumer confusion. Basically a kilo in the binary system is 1024.
And indeed these are bits, not bytes.
