BufSamples : BufInfoUGenBase : UGen : AbstractFunction : Object

Current number of samples in buffer.


Returns the current number of allocated samples. A sample is not the same as a frame (compare with BufFrames ); a frame includes the samples in each channel of the buffer. Only for a mono buffer are samples the same as frames.

samples = frames * numChannels

WARNING: The .ir method is not the safest choice. Since a buffer can be reallocated at any time, using .ir will not track the changes.
