I successfully made a time lapse sound recorder that records 1 second of sound every 20 seconds.
The second part of my patch will require playback of the files once recorded.
I’m avoiding loading them into the buffer for efficiency —
The files are named:
How can I achieve this? I’ve been trying to use a (counter) — (sprintf open %s.aif) — (sfplay~)
but no luck!

this is patch idea
Are they in your search path? Check the Max window to see if Max isn’t finding them (you’ll see a "can’t find file blahblah.aif" message).
You could also use the full path to the files in your sprintf message.
I have a bunch of other stuff going on in the patch @ the post link below, but the core elements of what you want are there too. Maybe you can hack pieces of what I have together into something useable.
The patch is at the top.
