Why my waveform~ display doesn't changes as it supposed to do?

    hi guys, i'm trying to do a simple sampler player. you can populate the umenu dragging a folder containing only samples in the relevant box. but the wave display does not change. it changes only when i un-lock the patch. what am i doing wrong?
    thanks

      Hi alfonso,
      The reason why you didn't see the full sample is that you were using [prepend read] instead of [prepend replace]. Read will read the sample you have selected to the buffer but only for the length set by the buffer... so if you have a 4 second sample and a 2 second buffer it will cut it to 2 seconds. Use the replace message instead. I have fixed this in your patch and added a couple of extras also - the startloop message is needed to begin playing (you were only using loop $1...) and if you're keen on looping the samples I've replaced groove~ with the grooveduck abstraction- it avoids clicks at loop points - check the helpfile for more info.
      Hope this helps...
