We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
MacBook Pro, OSX 10.13.4, Processing 3.3.7. Sound Library example sketch, when run no sound on the left channel, and it crashes on exit.

edit post, highlight code , press ctrl-o to format.
minim is more mature than the sound library, try that.
Thanks, I will give it a try 8^)))
It appears the errors when using SoundFile. If, instead, I use the mic as input there are no errors.
I would double check your mp3.
Thanks koogs. To be more specific, if I comment out the camera and analyze code, the sound file plays in stereo (no missing channel) with no errors. I'm pretty sure it's not the mp3.
This is the error message - "ERROR: /synth/map/input: Audio input index 0 out of range for synth 2"
