noob: dropfile~ query


Trying to use dropfile~ to drop a soundfile into and have a buffer refresh itself and access the most recent ‘dropped’ file.

I’m not sure of the message or object I need to connect these two.

Thanks in advance for your time!

The replace $1 message going into the right inlet of the buffer from the left outlet of dropfile also works.
But in MIB’s patch having a message box before the prepend replace object box allows the user to see the directory in which the sound file is saved on the user’s hdd.
