As said in the help file, the 3rd arguement of buffer~ is "optional initial length" or "buffer size" in ms. But info~ object also has another similar output called "total buffer time", which seems to report the length of the sound file loaded in buffer~. I feel confused with these two things. Could anyone explain the difference between "buffer size" and "total buffer time" ?
Does the "buffer size" arguement really limit the accessible temporal points in the loaded sound file ? I just read a patch with buffer size set to 1000, but when I load a 5 min audio file into it, the whole file still can be accessed with play~. Could anyone explain it a little bit ?
Thank you so much.
