Preload issues

    Jan 27 2012 | 5:45 pm
    I want to preload several different audio files into an sflist~ object. Is there an easier way than just creating multiple individual preload messages?
    I also want to enable reverse buffering on all of these- I want them to play the full audio clip so how do I go about setting end times so I can get to the reverse buffer argument?

      For playing soundfiles in reverse, you can get the duration of a soundfile with the sfinfo~ object. See Example 14: Live recording into a sound file.
      If you have a reasonably small number of soundfiles, just type a bunch of preload messages into a message box, separated by commas. If you have a large number of files you want to preload, it might be worth taking the time to preload a whole folder of soundfiles in one fell swoop, something like this.

      That was very helpful. I've been tinkering with the patch a bit, I am trying to get the durations of each soundfile that gets preloaded. I'm able to do it with an "open" object, is there any way to have it go through the files automatically without bringing up an "open" dialogue?

      Nevermind, I figured it out
