I have just started using Csound and I'm working my way through the Csound book's chapters. I am now doing the etude.1 exercises and I've run into a problem. One of the execises asks the user to play back a sample. I'm using a pc so I used another sample other than the aiff file one asked for. So I typed the sample's name and the header, wav, and when I compiled the code, I got the meesage that the file could not be opened (even the aiff file sample recommended by the book couldn't be opened but I thought this is because I'm using a pc and not a mac???). Is this a problem with WinXound (this is the frontened I'm using), should I place my samples in a specific folder so that Csound or WinXound know where to look for them? Thanks for your help.:)
newbie question, probably a simple answer to this question
