hi, i am still pretty new to max/msp, and i'm trying to figure out the best way to write short sound files (maybe 60ms or so) in real-time from audio input. i've looked at slice~ and recycle~, but haven't been able to figure out how to use either for what i want to do. at some point i want to be able to add descriptor information to each file that can be searched.
is it better to actually create individual short files that are tagged in some way or to create one large, ever-growing file that can be searched and accessed as it is being created? can anyone point me to examples of patches that do this in a straightforward way or that use either of the objects mentioned above?
i realize i may be getting in over my head, but any help would be appreciated.
