spigot~ freezes system with CD-audio

July 3, 2010 | 8:34 pm

On my system (Macbook pro / snowleopard) the system freezes, or gets very slow / almost stuck, when I try to adress CD-audio with spigot~.
Is this a known problem for somebody? Or do I fuck up somewhere?

Thanks for all help.

I don’t have a CD here to test, but is there any reason not to use sfplay~ (at least on the mac)? Remember that the access time of a CD is really really bad. Copying the file on the hard disk will be way better.

The reason for not using sfplay~ is the need to play different filetypes too, like mp3.
Copying matarial to HD first is not really an option because that increases the waittime, and I want this to be a no-nonsese, direct-response (allthough you are right on MAC CD-access-time), overall player also to be used by dummies.
