Hi there,

I’m making a patch that plays files in a folder in either up, down, bi-direction or random way.

When I hit play, the files play first fine and then it just screws up, playing the file not completely but just short parts of it. look at snapshot values to see what happens.

can someone help with this?

i’m uploadig the patch with a bpatcher file. please put the folder in your search path. upon starting rat_sfplay4C, first click on the folder (bottom of patch) to select the folder that you want to play from. sorry for the mess. any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Loading an audiofile into a buffer~ takes time.
Maybe this is causing the issue…

[buffer~]’s second outlet bangs, when loading is finished. Use this.

For fluent playback without interruptions maybe use direct playback from disk with [sfplay~].

Or use two alternating buffers, so that one buffer can load the next file, while the other is playing.

thanks for the reply.

i starting building the patch with sfplay, but i run into problems when i want to use reverse or normal to playback all the files. using preload 2 doesn’t see to work in the right way.

could you send me an example of what you mean by using 2 buffers?

is it possible to change the speed while the files are playing through preload2 in sfplay?
