jit.cellblock varname doesn't work in pattrstorage – help…!

Hi,
I’m using jit.cellblok to storage differents groups of numbers. My problem is that I want to safe several presets of the jit.cellblock with pattrstorage, and is impossible.

All the others objects works ok, but with pattrstorage but this can’t display my jit.cellblocks numbers. I’ve tried to change both names, and also I send a message of “varname X” to jit.cellblock
but nothing appears at pattrstorage.

Can someone give me a solution, please?
Thanks a lot!!

Hi there, if I was you I’d try outputting a preset as a list, then put this message into a message box which defines everything (including something not being used) and then use a select object connected to all the messages to select the result.

Basic start. You just need to figure out how to get a list out or use the coll object to set the jit.cellblock.

Thanks Andro for your solution. My problem is that i want use “message set” to write de numbers,
but write them directelly in the cells, and there’s the problem to save in pattrstorage.
I will try your suggestion to try outputting a preset as a list, and then put this (probably) in a coll so as to call each group (list) by the index……???

Thanks again!

Hi,
Probably someone have the same problem. I found an answer that help me to find my solution :

“…The problem is that preset and pattr don’t support cellblock (or jit.matrix for that matter), which makes sense because of the variety of data the cells can have. I’d say stick to matrixctrl because it can be pretty and you can script the dimensions (by size commands to thispatcher). So the user can have 1 voice / track for 32 beats, 8 voices / tracks for 16 beats, etc. The only downfall is that the scale is predetermined by the picture size (unlike multislider, cellblock, and jit.matrix), so you might want two versions: one larger image for shorter sequences, one smaller for longer ones. Because pattr supports matrixctrl and multisliders, you have a whole world of possibilities with saving / recalling / interpolating between your settings. These give a big bang for the buck when actually making your music, which I hope happens at some point..” http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/beat-manipulation-with-the-coll-object/
