Unfortunately in the Pd world, there are sometimes many object classes
trying to serve the same purpose. In the case of [wavinfo] there is also
[soundfile_info] from iemlib. The former does not seem to work very well
(it gives completely wrong numbers on certain files), while the latter
is working much better. Also [wavinfo] doesn't seem to be supported by
the author anymore, while in the case of [soundfile_info] bugs are still
being fixed. I strongly recommend to use [soundfile_info] over
