Parent preset for bpatchers?


I want to have individual presets in each version of the bpatcher and also a parent preset. I also want to be able to interpolate at every level. I have attached the files and would appreciate any advice you can give as it’s not working for me. Sine glide multi is the parent, gagaku b is the bpatcher

Many thanks

If you’re not telling us what it is which isn’t working for you its kinda hard to debug this since you’re leaving us to guess.

For starters I noticed that the bpatcher objects contained a wrong reference; “gagaku b.maxpat” instead of “gagakub.maxpat”, which could be a possible cause.

Since every bpatcher loads a new copy of the subpatch each of them will have their own settings, so I’m also not too sure about what you meant with “individual presets”. Its not as if all bpatchers would use the same settings.


You also might want to check your Max window. The moment I load the main patch I get several errors:

#N: extra arguments for message “loadbang”
“$” variable out of range (1)
#N: extra arguments for message “loadbang”
“$” variable out of range (1)
#N: extra arguments for message “loadbang”
“$” variable out of range (1)

Loadbang doesn’t take any arguments for example…

basically I cant preset the bpatcher from outside it. I want to be able to save the states of multiple bpatchers from the parent patch.

OK I have tried to really simplify it. I want presets inside and outside of bpatchers, hopefully the atached files should demonstrate. It partially works but has some bug. The parent preset recalls saved states but randomly.
