Multiple files loading into buffers / Triggering


    Mar 11 2008 | 7:13 pm
    Hi all,
    I need to automatically load 1.000 soundfiles into either a single or seperate buffers and then trigger each file by a footswitch controller....
    I can create the control section of the patch, but I need a convenient way to load the samples into the buffer(s) with ques etc
    Any suggestions?

      Why not use a cue list in sfplay~ ?

      I think it is preferable to load the files in buffers because I' ll be able to process them and also pick up specific parts of them.

      Also I might use some algorithms to trigger more than 100 files at once and i am afraid that my HD speed is not sufficient enough for this

      You can script that quite easily. Just create a buffer for each sound file in a folder.
      I don't have a patch at hand tonight (it's in my office), but this thread may give you some hints: https://cycling74.com/forums/index.php? t=msg&goto=115066&rid=0&S=960b80586c63c962218fcada5ac70382&srch=delges+b uffer#msg_115066

      Thank you.
      If you could send me your patch at some point that would be great.

      Hi,
      for "batch" tasks, I often use poly~, even for control-only ones.
      Save this as "polybuffer~" :
      Save this as "polybuffer~.help" or something :

      Have you tried aiff formatted files?
      It works for me.

      Hi Dimitris,
      yes, I tried .aif files, but it does not work for me, hm. Manually replacing the buffer with the Soundfile "xxx.wav" in the "polybuffer~ (1..) give no error and loads fine.
