Put your sound files into an ubumenu (you could do that with the dropfile method – my personal fav which is in the help files) and then use pattrstorage and autopattr objects to recall since autopattr supports ubumenu. Pay attention to the pattrmode message which ubumenu takes. Also, there are lots of nice preset object emulators for pattrstorage. The st.tools kit has one and Charles De Tar has a nice jsui one.

Don’t know about the ~buffer, but if you load a sample into a buffer~,
you can also assign that path to a pattr, and then prepend open the
outlet of the pattr back to the buffer~. That way you can even store
different contents of buffer~s within the pattrstorage…
The simplest is a message box with the complete path which you bang on
