Hello, I am using oggread~ with the 8 channel file http://people.64studio.com/~daniel/DJ_Vadim-Saturday.ogg which is under Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial 3.0 so is OK to share. Please find the patch shown in the screenshot attached. I will try readanysf~ next, thanks for the tip!
Using 0.43.4-extended-20121114 on Ubuntu Lucid, I can play a two channel Ogg Vorbis file or an eight channel WAV file but I cannot play an eight channel Ogg Vorbis file (made with Audacity, plays correctly in VLC) without the result sounding very slowed down. Please see attached screenshot of a demo patch. Please et me know if you would like sample audio files.
