CMB data crashes computer shock

Now that I have the data in a form that I can use I'm trying to input it into an IFFT (inverse fast fourier transform), to reassemble the components into one sound, one waveform, but haven't worked out the trick to doing that yet in either Max/MSP or SuperCollider.

I tried to load the CMB data, as 2001 frequencies and their corresponding amplitudes, into Klank, a SuperCollider object, a bank of resonators. Programming wise this is far simpler . . . but it crashed the computer !
