December 12, 2010 | 6:12 pm

hello all. can someone just explain in laymans step by step terms what i have to do to get samples to load straight away/with the patch when i open a patch please (self containing them i guesss you would call it…). ive been looking at buffer help but cant figure it out, im guessing i have to specify the file path (how?) and maybe a loadbang? as simple as possible please people i really havnt got a clue lol.

thanks in advance!!!

When you name the buffer, give it a second argument which names the desired file, eg: [buffer~ myFile anySound.aif].

Max must be informed of the file path if the audiofile is outside Cycling74/examples/sounds (I think), and you do this under Folder Preferences.
