I can't believe I'm asking such a basic question, but here goes:
Sending a seek messsage into a named sfplay~ object that has preloaded files does not start playback from the seek point; in fact it does not start playback at all. The Max window states "error: sfplay~: seek: no open file". It seems preloaded files are not recognized as open files - odd, no?
I'm assuming I'd have to create a whole new bunch of preloads, one for each seek point, but that seems like a hassle. Any simpler solutions out there?
