new gen feature in 6.1.7

May 5, 2014 | 9:18 am

Hi
I noticed the following in release notes:
" Gen: added subpatcher message to gen subpatchers"

Just curious if anyone could explain what this new feature is.

Haven’t tested it yet but if it’s what I think it is then it’s a very welcome addition that solves something I’ve run into in the past.

I think that in the past gen subpatchers could not detect messages. Any message received would stop at the top level gen~ patch. So it sounds like this feature solves that, which means I need to go back and tidy up some gen patches where I had to find workarounds.

Hmm, I can’t figure out how to make it work. Can someone who has figured this new feature out chime in please?

This wording is a little misleading. What was added is that now Gen subpatchers will be searched when doing a cmd+F in the containing patcher/genpatcher.

Oh. :-/

Thanks for clearing it up Ben.

Thanks for explaining. I was hoping it was something else. :)
