I have a strange problem using sflist~:
For lists larger than about 2200 cues I get the following error message(s):
sflist~: can't open wave file soundfile
error opening soundfile, err -1
This happens for every file exceeding that number.
Max itself seems overcharged. It doesn't show the proper symbols in the bottom bar anymore, instead: pencil.svg patcherwindows.svg presentation.svg etc. Also keyboard-shortcuts don't work properly anymore.
When I empty the lists everything works fine again.
So here's my question: Why the heck is that?! Is there a maximum number of files that MAX is able to have prebuffered at the same time?
It is not a RAM issue neither. 3000 files use up about 30 MB, which cannot be problem at all, not even in 32-bit.
And there is no difference whether I use let's say 5 sflists~ (named differently of course) and load them with 1000 files each or one single sflist loaded with 5000 files neither. I always get the error messages.
If anybody has any clue about that mystery I'd be so relieved. This thing's keeping me up for long now... Thanks a lot in advance!
