Im using tabread4~to read audio files (which are loops) from tables. I discovered that pure data has silent dips when I upload a new file whilst another file is playing.
To avoid this, it was suggested to me that I load all the files I need and then use set message to "point" tab read to different tables.
I haven't trialled this yet but I wanted same extra thoughts as to how effective this may be? The reason Im hesitating is because I have to achieve an hour long live set using the raspberry pi which has limited ram. When I load all those files to tables am I loading them to RAM? Or can I load them and successfully play a few back at a time instead ?
