From pluggo to m4l

What should i know, beside the quick notes i found in the manual ? Things are still not clear for me…

- Do i get rid of the pp objects ?

- How to i convert my xml preset file i used with pattr to a bunch of presets Live would understand ?

Best wishes

The pp objects are some embed in the live.* objects (live.dial, live.numbox, live.slider to name a few). Which speeds up the development process. Plus they have various display features, they are magically automatable and modulable…

For your second question, pattrstorage can store presets within a device preset. You need to set its parameter_enable in order to have it become a blob parameter.

Merci Emmanuel. So if i use other objects than the live family, i should still use pp ?

Nope. You’ll use pattr instead, and set its parameter_enable attribute. That way it becomes a parameter (seen by Live as such).
