I've been doing a lot of experimenting with pd during the last couple of
days, and I'm having a great time. I'm working with sound files, and
thought that I might find some advice here.
I see that an sfread object is included in the externs directory, and I am
wondering how I should go about compiling it? The files of code are there,
but it doesn't seem available to me in pd, so I don't think that it got
compiled on install? (version 0.25TEST4)
I've been working with loading files into arrays in the meantime, and have
a question. When I read a sound file into an array, the length is sent to
the stdout window. I would like to use that value in pd. Is it accessible
somehow? I'm getting clicks at the start and finish of playing the content
of the arrays, so if I could find out the length of the sound file, I could
mute the output to the dac~ at the appropriate times. Any ideas?
I'm a bit confused as to the difference between a graph and array. It
seems that I should make a graph, and then create an array in it?
