Wonder if someone could help me. I have a simple sampler set-up that takes a sample every x milliseconds and then writes it to disk. The problem I have is that the first time it runs, it writes the sample, but the next time it runs, although the file that it writes to says it has been updated (i.e as time moves on the file is continuously updated with the latest time), it hasn't actually been overwritten (ie it still holds the sample from the first time it was run).
I understand that there is a makefilename object for unique names, but what I want to be able to do is to periodically open the continuously overwritten file into another patch, so if it's possible I just want to overwrite the existing filename rather than creating a unique name each time the sampler runs.
Is there a way to do this?
