I'm trying to work out when to delete a WavAudioFormatReader created by WavAudioFormat::createReaderFor. I do the following:
File file(filename); FileInputStream stream(file); WavAudioFormat format; AudioFormatReader *reader = format.createReaderFor(stream, false); synth.addSound(new SamplerSound(name, *reader, notes, root, attack, release, 10.0)); delete reader;
The problem is delete reader causes the runtime to throw an assertion about bad heap blocks. I tried storing the reader in an array owned by the object that has this code, but when it comes to cleanup the readers, I get a crash trying to access 0xffffffff. So... when can I safely delete the reader? If I don't then JUCE reports I've leaked this object.
Apart from this, I've rewritten my Melody Mine application using JUCE and can create MIDI files or play sample wave files; I'm impressed I've got this to work so far without having to resort to external libraries yet!
