fink — Read signals from a file at k-rate.


Read signals from a file at k-rate.


fink ifilename, iskipframes, iformat, kin1 [, kin2] [, kin3] [,...]


ifilename -- input file name (can be a string or a handle number generated by fiopen)

iskipframes -- number of frames to skip at the start (every frame contains a sample of each channel)

iformat -- a number specifying the input file format. If a header is found, this argument is ignored.

  • 0 - 32 bit floating points without header

  • 1 - 16 bit integers without header


fink is the same as fin but operates at k-rate.

[Note] Note

Please note that since this opcode generates its output using input parameters (on the right side of the opcode), these variables must be initialized before use, otherwise a 'used before defined' error will occur. You can use the init opcode for this.


Here is an example of the fink opcode. It uses the file fink.csd.

See the sections Real-time Audio and Command Line Flags for more information on using command line flags.

Note that this example requires the file test.txt to be created, for example by fouti

; Select audio/midi flags here according to platform
-odac     ;;;realtime audio out
;-iadc    ;;;uncomment -iadc if realtime audio input is needed too
; For Non-realtime ouput leave only the line below:
; -o fink.wav -W ;;; for file output any platform
