Are you using readsf~ to read th soundfile?  Unfortunately, readsf~
doesn't search along the canvas's path (for complicated reasons) and so needs 
to be sent an explicit path, like "../folder/a.wav", to find files outside 
the patch's directory.

Alternatively you can set Pd's global path in preferences -- readsf~ knows
how to use those even though it doesn't know about the patch's own declarations.
