splitting the channels of a stereo audio file into two buffers

hey guys,
I need to load and buffer the two channels of a stereo audio file into two single buffer~s, so I can use them seperately for convolution (buffir~).
(For example [buffer~ left]->[buffir~ left],[buffer~ right]->[buffir~ right])
Someone told me that it would be quite easy, but he couldn’t remember how to do it, and we both couldn’t find out so far.

Thanks for you’re help

Just out of curiosity, is there a reason you couldn’t just load the whole file into two separate buffers and just have each groove object play the left or right channel?

It can be done with split sent to mxj buf.Op

Thanks, I’ll try it.
I copuld load and groove the file twice and take the r/l channels of one of them, but I don’t want to play the the file I need it to be buffer so I can convolute it with buffir~.

HI ya,

Were you able to figure out how to split the l/r channels of a stereo file? I’m in the similar position as I want to treat each channel separately and can’t find a way to split it within Max. Thanks for any help!
