I suggest you use player~ by Eric Lyon for stable playback :-) I cannot speak to the bad header though

Hi All,

in Pd 0.45.4 vanilla I'm getting the following behavior from soundfiler, using the help file:

1. Hit 2nd message down to read full bell sound into array2 - works fine.

2. Hit 4th message down to write an AIFF file to /tmp - resulting sound file is unreadable, apparently due to an invalid header.

3. HIt 5th message down to write a WAVE file to /tmp - works fine.

Below is a report from diagnostic utility sndfile-info.
