problems with buffer~ writing to raw


    Oct 15 2013 | 12:50 pm
    I'm trying to write raw files using buffer. Something pretty simple, but I'm getting the following error:jsoundfile_writefloats: bogus format specified buffer~: could not create file:
    Not sure what may be going on. This is the patch:

      There are some known issues regarding raw audio file write. We hope to address some of the issues in the next update.
      Thanks, -Ben
