Very simple question

I don’t know why but none of the tutorials I tried could help make this play the buffer I recorded. Double-clicking it shows it’s there, but I don’t know how to play it through the speakers.

Thank you! That works perfectly! Just a question though, I’m curious what does sig~ do to make the buffer play properly and the bang doesn’t o.o?

good question, just know that it works like that because of the help file for groove~…

it would appear that groove~ requires two types of info in the left inlet: sample number playback position (your 0) AND playback speed. Sending the number zero will do nothing; sending a continuous signal (sig~) provides speed value but also initializes playback:

@Byakko remember that MSP is a signal network and the groove~ object requires a constant supply of 1’s so you use sig~ to keep sending 1’s over and over to the groove~
At least thats my undertanding of it. Sorry, I’m a noob too, so that’s as explained as I can get it lol!
