I own Max/MSP Jitter 6 on a Mid Summer 2010 Macbook Pro. I am very new to Max/MSP. I am trying to get the Buffer~ to read a wav/aiff file, but am having trouble so far. I have tried messages like Read, Replace and I have also tried the OpenDialog object. Nothing has worked. I am lucky enough to get sound to play in sfplay~, but no luck with buffer~ Can anyone help me?
you can’t output any sound from the buffer~ object itself, you need to bind its name to another object to play samples it contains (play~, groove~…).
I understand you can’t output audio from the buffer itself. I am trying to get the buffer to read an audio file so that it can give me a waveform representation of it so that I can get the groove~ object to play it. Currently I am getting the error message "buffer~: cannot open parser for this file" I don’t know what this means.
Well i was just doing a very basic and simple little ‘sampler’ just to record a few ms of sound. Writing what’s stored in the buffer works, but when i want to load back what i wrote, it doesn’t, and i get ‘Buffer~ cannot open parser for this file’ error…
Tutor did exactly the same thing in the lecture and it worked just fine…
Could you post your code / patcher file. It would help us troubleshoot your problem.
I’m having this trouble also but only with MP 3 files. Here’s all I have going on

if not done already, you might have to install quicktime on windows to enable full filetype support.
first thing to check is if the file can be read by other software. you could share a problem soundfile here and other people will tell you if buffer~ should read this. O.
Thanks for your response but I do have QuickTime installed. I just tried reinstalling it to no avail. It’s not any file in particular, it’s just any mp3. I’m running windows 8.1 and I am wondering if QuickTime even supports the OS. At the page I downloaded it from it said
QuickTime 7.7.5 for Windows XP,
Windows Vista or Windows 7
Can anyone confirm that QuickTime Works with windows 8?
