I am trying to set up pd 43.4 extend on a Macbook Pro with Yosemite. I did download x11.
Some things have been acting erratically.
I am not getting any sound file written by writesf~.
I tried many different file paths in the open message and i tried .wav and .aiff but nothing happens.
I printed from writesf~ and it says:
fifo head 176384
fifo tail 0
fifo size 524288
Is there something new about the way this works that I am missing?
Any ideas would be awesome,thanks,k
writesf~ not working
Please ignore my hasty post. I figured out that I was just making a silly mistake. It seems my Mac won't let me write files anywhere above my user folder. Yea!
I'm new to this, should I leave this up or just delete the whole topic?
Hi KNW, welcome to this forum,
Please do leave this topic up, as it may be helpful to someone else in the future. Sometimes people bang their heads against the wall for days before realizing that a solution was much easier than they first thought, and it is really nice to find an easy answer online early on, saving us from a lot of trouble
yes it did help! Total noob to pd here... I had abut 2 hours of head banging first finding how to save files (found writesf~ ) then trying the example in the help files with the same lack of success.... this post pointed me in the right direction: I copied / saved the writesf~ example to a directory to which I had write access (my working files) and magic happened!! Thanks!
@hayasidist Hi and welcome! Glad to hear the original post solved your problem, that just goes to show why one should almost never delete a post, regardless of how "silly" it may look to the original poster
