I'm having a bit of trouble with a patch and would appreciate any help! I've searched the forum but can't find an answer, though I'm sure it's something small and stupid I'm doing wrong. as is always the way.
So I'm trying to load stereo files into a buffer~. I can do this with a "read" message and get the buffer to load both the left and the right channels of the audio file correctly. I can then use a play~ object to play the file back in stereo, exactly as they should sound. This is what I want, but this only works for a limited range of file types (wav, aiff, etc).
What I want is to use the import message instead, which allows many more files types to be loaded, including mp3. Problem is, all I seem to be able to do is import the left channel of the audio file into the two channels of the buffer~. So two channels load up when using the "import" message, but they're both identical; they're both the file's left channel, and the right channel is always missing. I read the help file for buffer~ but can't seem to make sense of it. If there was an example of how I should format my import message going into the buffer~, I might be able to fix the problem.
