simple buffer question

is it possible to call the same audio file into two differently named buffers and have them function normally as two separate buffers, or do i need to make a copy of the file?? i’m looking to pull multiple samples out of a single audio file and be able to trigger them all seperately whenever i want, maybe this is possible through a single buffer but i keep running into problems, any advice or help appreciated as i am still fairly new to the max environment

i would use multiple buffers and play them with groove~, and set loop start and end points individually for each of them

yeah thats where i’m at, i just use alot of cuts so its quite tedious just starting out having to deal with so many buffers, but my problem is that i can’t trigger one of those set loops as a single shot play, if i use the loop 0 or $1 it plays all the way to the end of the audio sample and i want it to cut off in the middle, right now i am setting up means of sending a stop signal and sequencing that in with the start signals…..which brings me to my next question, i want to use a matrixctrl grid to send signals to the different samples to play them, i’ve seen somebody use it like this but i can’t figure it out, i want it to scroll through the grid according to a set bpm so that the different rows would be the different samples and the columns would be increments of time, and then i could draw in the cells to turn on and off the samples, any help there??

also, i don’t know if that massive chunk of text that people post is code i can use or something, but i have no idea how to use that so if somebody would be so kind as to let me know what to do it would be greatly appreciated

just copy the code, including the begin_ and end_max5_patcher lines, and paste it into a blank max patch!

ahhh what a simple concept, i would of never thought to do that though, thanks…… any help with the matrixctrl question or anything else anyone feels is important??
