[PD] Buffer Type Question

So basically i wanted to see if anyone had any useful
advice on buffers, like for example correct me if i'm
wrong but arrays seem to be the only way to set up
audio buffers, yes? Recently i have been messing about
with tabwrite~ using it to read audio data from one
loop player into an array and then feeding that array
data to a second audio player; i was trying to set up
a kind of skipping cd type thing, going from normal
file playing to a jarring short loop and then perhaps
back to the normal audio.  what i found annoying
though is that the array (or would it be the tabwrite~
object itself?) writes data in clumsy blocks, rather
than say as a continuous bit by bit flow into the
array, which cause all manner of audio ugliness and
made the timing that was so essential to the effect a
complete mess. has anyone got any tips on how to
improve this situation or blatantly obvious pieces of
information im not getting? best regards and stuff, thanks.
