raw files in buffer~ ?


    Aug 14 2010 | 2:50 am
    In order to make these raw sounds we get by playing non-audio files, i try to import such files (any type) into a buffer~ ... thought it should be possible, as we can specify the file type to buffer~ using [prepend filetype].
    But each time i try to import anything (~ else than audio), i get an -error 2048, or "couldn'f find an audio track in movie file" if it's jpg/graphic file.
    ... Ok so it means buffer~ only wants audio ?
    Works with sfplay~ though, but i want to play it very fast / at different indexes / change sample on-the-fly, and in a superstitious way i would rather do it with a buffer than with sfplay~ and seek ...

      I think you can change the header of a file with Soundhack; so you could change the header of an image file to a BWF, which would then load into a buffer~.
