import to buffer~ on windows

    Aug 07 2006 | 2:25 pm
    I tried to port a patch from Mac to PC, and it seems the import message
    for buffer~ doesn't work in a usable manner. It will freeze the computer
    for about as long as the file would need to play or even longer... On a
    Mac Powerbook 1.5 GHz PPC it would take about 10 seconds, The PC is an
    AMD-Sempron 2600+ Laptop...
    (I tried with mp3 160kb/s of around 4 minutes length)
    Is import on PC's in general unusable, or did I miss some trick to make
    it work? Just wondering...
    Don't know how far the spigot~ solution for PC got as alternative, as
    the UB 4.6 beta seems to work now.
