"error opening soundfile.aif, err -1"

January 5, 2011 | 11:44 pm


as I try to load audio files into a sfplay~ object this is the message I am getting. It does not happen with all files, but I cannot see a logic for the error happening or not. I guess a god start would be to know what "err -1" goes for.

All help very welcome,

Never mind, it was some tricky protection the Abletons put on samples from their own banks. No external sign of it but even Audacity wouldn’t open those. I rebounced, it works now.
Thanks anyway
