Help needed with two patterstorage in the same patch


I would like a patterstorage to control one part of my patch and another patterstorage to control another part of my patch. The first one can see all the parameters existing in the patch (and I can select the ones I want) So far so good.
But… when I open the clientwindow of the second patterstorage, I can’t see the parameters I have deselected before. I’ve searched in the tutorials and seen the 3 videos by G. Taylor (excellent btw) but I don’t find anyone speaking of 2 patterstorages at the same level. I’ve tried the greedy attribute but with no results…

Any advice ?

Thanks in advance.

duplicate the patcher and create different pattrstorages and different autopattrs for the objects
like this

Thanks for the reply but I would like to have the patterstorages in the same patcher.For example, one part of my patch recalled by patterstorage A and another part by patterstorage B.

Any idea ?

OK. I don’t think it’s possible. I was thinking that pattrstorage would be more useful. At the end of the day, it’s just a sort of global snapshot tool… but no more.

I’m going to use a series of coll and scale objects to emulate the preset morphings that I want to achieve.

Check the docs for “subscribemode $1″ and “subscribe ” etc., looks like you should be able to set everything manually for each pattrstorage. However, I can’t get it to work. Anyone know why? What is the “subscription list”? I can get objects subscribed but they don’t show up in the Client List, and aren’t stored as presets…so…what are they?

Thanks a lot for your answer ! You makes my day !

You gave me what I was looking for : subscribe mode 1. I’ve seen it but not understood what it was for. Thanks.

Now, your question : you have to put an autopattr in your patch to see your clients in the client window.

Cool! I understand it now. HOWEVER…

I get a consistent crash: delete [autopattr], then Undo it so it comes back. Bam. Tried with clientwindows open or not, same result.

XP, 5.1.8


This may have been fixed in an update, my apologies (and ignore) if so…

Either way, thanks for the clarification!

I’ve tried to reproduce the crash you described but all is fine here : Mac OSX 6.8 and Max 6

At least one thing that is less buggy on Max6 ;)
