Referring to a file path from any location.

    Hi there,
    How do I go about loading a file into a buffer from any computer given that the sound files will be neatly stored in a subfolder called 'Sounds'
    I can load the sounds on any computer without specifying a path should both the sound files and patch be in the same folder but what if the soundfiles are in a subfolder relative to the main patch?
    max v2;
    Thanks,
    Rhys
