hmm, actually that is something completely different to what you want.
[soundfiler] reads a soundfile and stores its data in an array (a lot of 
floating-point values packed together as tight as possible into memory)
this has nothing to do with a visual representation (thats what the 
"graph" does; arrays are held in graphs)

there is an experimental object scopeXYZ~ in the CVS, but that is for 
realtime scoping (and when i tried it yesterday it did not behave as i 
expected it...)

in the meanwhile you can try generating the waveforms with an external 
editor and load the images as normal ;-)
