does pattr/pattrhub do what I want?

November 1, 2010 | 9:12 am

Hi,

I have a few pattr objects in a patch, and I’m looking for a way to have a central object that reads all of these at once (connectionless-ly) so I can make a pattrstorage automatically save its state whenever one of the values is changed. There are simpler ways I could do it, but I’m just wondering if there is any way to report whenever any of the pattr objects’ values are changed. Sort of like pattrhub, but binding to all the pattrs at once. I hope that makes sense…

Thanks.

If you add the attribute "@outputmode 1" to pattrstorage it will output any changes from pattr objects that it is ‘watching’.

Useful for dispatching UI changes as feedback to a controller, or for sending UI values to a dsp engine (as in the x-synth example). Should also be usable for your needs.
