    is there an external which allows 'any' file to open and be coverted to sound or whatever . . . ? [osx]
    i looked up and down the database etc . . . a version for 9 exists only, it seems.

      did you check filein?

      i'm trying both sfplay~ + filein, i guess i need to tweak a little - the results aren't really worth the trouble: thus far. i've been f_ck_ng aroud with this all morning and . . . . . .
      sounds strange + i understand that i need to research more myself; but, i want to take all sound source and convert to video - video source to audio. maybe even stretch the results out a little [ie. more than pops. crakcs. + blinks] . too much too ask with actually 'writing' code? i definately get some 'obvious' results.
      render audio to video - video to audio with unpredictable but useful results. perhaps alter existing buffered sound/video.
      i'm pouring over old inquiries as i imagine i am missing the obvious.
      is this stupid too try?

      Yes - you're going to have to do a bit of work (meaning patching, etc) to move that sort of sound/imagery into something more to your aesthetics. But thats where the fun, experimentation and learning come in.
      > is this stupid too try?
      Absolutely not!
      To render audio as video, there is a whole set of MSP~ to Jitter Matrix bridge objects, specifically jit.catch~, jit.poke~ , jit.graph (not specifically MSP wise) that you can do all sorts of fun things with.
      For audio, er... I am not an MSP~ guy at all, I dont know much about how to smooth stuff out, but, well, slide~ might be something to look at. You could also slow down your playback through the buffer, or do some granular synthesis stuff to hold on a set of frequencies with out altering the pitch for super slow playback. There is much to explore here.
