Maintaining two independent preset systems

July 8, 2009 | 3:52 pm

I am working on a patch that sends OpenSoundControl commands, and I want to be able to separately configure the communications aspect (IP address and port) from the functional aspects, with recallable presets for both.

In other words, I’d like to be able to choose from a set of presets for host and port, independently of a set of presets for patch behavior. It looks like I can use the ‘exclude’ link in autopattr for this.

However, how do I then create a separate pattrstorage mechanism for these presets? It seems all the pattrstorage objects are affected by the autopattr?

you can have two active pattrstorage’s in same root patch by utilizing the subscribemode attribute on both, and sending them each a subscribe list.

however in your case, it seems would be much simpler to have a menu or cellblock of your possible ip’s.
