beginner problem with buffer

    Mar 13 2010 | 11:29 am
    Hello, I would like to play some samples with buffer and groove building up on msp tutorial 14 on max 5. Whenever i rename a buffer to my own filename and also read it into the buffer with a read meassage (doubleclicking buffer shows wavefrom correctly) the max window allways tells me there is no buffer with that name when i try to play it with groove.(groove~: no buffer~filename) I was trying many diffrent filenames, and searched the forum for that but couldn't find anything. thanks for any advice... m

      You need to give the buffer a name as well as the file to load: [buffer~ name01 drumloop.aif] then refer to it by name rather than the file [groove~ name01].
