[PD] tabread4~ granulator: soundfile error

hi gang,

i am working on a soundfile granulator, based on tabread4~, and i have a couple 
of questions.

1) i can only load about a minute of audio into this table. i always 
get "soundfiler error : truncated to 40000000 elements" with larger files. is 
there another type of table that can hold more samples?

2) converting between milliseconds and samples in my patch for some reason 
turns into some very cryptic math [at least for me]. i can't quite get my 
little tabread4~ to behave predictably. is there another type of 
table/soundfiler that i can give variable read locations and durations in 
milliseconds instead of samples? [more along the lines of the way delay tables 
work in PD...]

3) how about stereo??? is there a way to split a stereo soundfile into two 
tables? otherwise, i am stuck with mono, which i assume is only the left 
channel of the stereo sound file...

thanks for any suggestions. i'll be happy to post the completed gadget to the 
list when it works right.
