That's one reason for it.

If you're getting dummy strs it's because the pd you're using doesn't 
have strings/blobs. You need to patch the source with the 
add_string_support_patch, which is in cvs under packages/patches. Or use 
pd extended, which is built using all the patches.

Make a [str to_symbol] object and feed it a list of floats.
