Unable to import .dat files into buffer~

November 25, 2011 | 9:40 am

I’m building a filter. I’m using the pfft~ object from MSP tutorial 26. I’m trying to load my impulse response into a buffer to convolve with my audio signal.

My impulse responses are .dat files, just raw data, and is in stereo. Max will not even attempt to read the data in. Is there a way I can do this without using audacity to convert all my IR data into .wav files? I have over 550 files I would have to convert if this was the case. And one at a time in audacity is not something I wish to do.

I know buffer will parse the data correctly into the proper channels, will I be able to out put that data separately?

In Max5′s buffer~‘s help file, it was clearly stated about headerless files that buffer~ cannot read these files.

In Max6, I can’t find anything about this in the doc.

Searching for "header" brings nothing (although the word is used in the doc, even in buffer’s help), and searching for "raw" doesn’t show anything related to buffer~ (althought the word is used in buffer’s reference…).

Sorry to turn your problem into a complain about Max’ doc.
