How do i properly recall a .wav file in a for-loop? Changing the name of the variable with sprintf gives me an error.
[wav1,Fs] = audioread('wav1.wav');
[wav2,Fs] = audioread('wav2.wav');
[wav3,Fs] = audioread('wav3.wav');
n = 3;
for k = 1:n
wavx = sprintf('wav%d', k);
[acor,lag] = xcorr(wav1,wavx);
I hope someone can help me, thanks a lot in advance!

In this case you may want to store the your signals in a cell array and then loop through your cell array. And xcorr does the padding for you.

Or, assuming this is for the same piece of homework as yesterday, this can help you (although I hesitate to suggest it as an answer as it does not answer your question):
myFiles = uigetfile('*.wav', 'MultiSelect', 'on');
mySignals = cell(length(myFiles),1);
for iFile = 1:length(myFiles)
mySignals{iFile} = audioread(char(myFiles(iFile)));

@harrie: The application of xcorr is not a problem in any way, if you use a cell array. wav{1} is much better than wav1, because you can access it easily in a loop.
