Write simple array into a buffer

how is the easiest way to write array content into buffers?
~buffer = Buffer(s);
~data = (0…49).scramble;

thank you!

The most common way (not the only way) is to use the Buffer method .loadCollection:

~buffer = Buffer.loadCollection(s, (0..49).scramble);

thank you! but why does it creates a temporary file? is not a lenguaje side thing?

See the help file for Buffer … loadCollection and sendCollection. The help files explains about the temporary file being created in the process. The tmp file is automatically deleted after use.

Buffer data have to be stored in the server, if you’re going to use them in the server.

The temp file is a transport mechanism to get the data from language memory to server memory.

If you keep the data only in the language, then server UGens can’t access the data.
