File saving to EXACTLY where you want it.

August 25, 2007 | 11:18 am

This is an aspect of max that always confuses the hell out of me…

It is very simple

I record a sound file using record~, I message buffer with
writeaiff.sample1. Not a problem until….

1/ I find that the samples have been saved in a folder outside of
where my patch is saved

2/ I want to recall into sfplay~ using preload and says that such a
file does not exist.

I have gone into file preferences to make sure that the search paths
are definitely going through my folder and that of the folder that
frustratingly has my samples stored, this has proved very ineffective.

Any advice out there?

I would give a file path to sfrecord~ then you know for sure where the file will end up.

something like:

‘open iBookHD:/Users/Username/Desktop/myfile.wav wave’

will open a wave file on the desktop.

best,

j.
