```Hi, Aloha ,
I think, you should write "<= ", rather than "=" in the definition of
your piecewise function. Have a look at this:

In[16]:= f[x_] :=
Piecewise[{{4.*x^2 - 4.*x, 0 <= x <= 1}, {-2*x^2 + 8*x - 6,
1 <= x <= 3}, {x^2 - 10*x + 21,
3 <= x <= 7}, {-1/2*x^2 + 11*x - 105/2,
7 <= x <= 15}, {.5714285714*x^2 - 21.14285714*x + 188.5714286,
15 <= x <= 22}, {-.8*x^2 + 39.2*x - 475.2, 22 <= x <= 27}}]

In[20]:= Timing[Play[f[x], {x, 0, 27}]]

Out[20]= {0.031, (Sound[
SampledSoundFunction[
CompiledFunction[{Blank[Integer]}, {{2, 0, 0}, {3, 0, 1}}, {0, 1, 3,
0, 0}, {{1, 5}, {8, 0., 0}, {8, 0.000125, 1}, {15, 1, 0, 2}, {21,
1, 2, 1}, {18, 0, 1, 0}, {
54, Function[{
Play`Time5}, \$CellContext`f[\$CellContext`x]], {\$CellContext`x,
3, 0, 0, Block}, 2, 0, 0, 3, 0, 1}, {
8, -0.5000937551520472, 2}, {18, 1, 2, 1}, {
8, 0.13333620140328437`, 2}, {21, 1, 2, 1}, {2}},
Function[{Play`Time5},
Block[{\$CellContext`x = 0. + 0.000125 Play`Time5}, \
(\$CellContext`f[\$CellContext`x] - 0.5000937551520472)
0.13333620140328437`]], Evaluate], 216000, 8000]])}

Have a success, Alexei

Grettings All

I'm running this command
Play[Piecewise[{{4.000000000*x^2 - 4.000000000*x,
0 = x <= 1}, {-2*x^2 + 8*x - 6, 1 = x <= 3}, {x^2 - 10*x + 21,
3 = x <= 7}, {-1/2*x^2 + 11*x - 105/2,
7 = x <= 15}, {.5714285714*x^2 - 21.14285714*x + 188.5714286,
15 = x <= 22}, {-.8000000000*x^2 + 39.20000000*x - 475.2000000,
22 = x <= 27}}], {x, 0, 27}]

and it's taking extremely long and would like to find out how long it
takes to run this line.  Also if anyone has a more efficient way of
using this command please let me know.  I'm just trying to output the
wave file to an audio file.

Aloha
