Passing attributes into abstraction?

April 27, 2009 | 4:32 am

so once again I find myself having an MXJ which takes attribute style arguments INSIDE an abstraction. and I need to set the mxj attributes at load time from the abstraction arguments.

It would be really useful if I could somehow pass attribute style arguments into the MXJ without zeroes in the MXJ if I didn’t fill anything in. I can’t think of a way. Anyone have any ideas? short of using patcherargs with scripting? This solution is slow and clunkly.

any ideas?

scratch that bit about a workaround in scripting. apparently it’s tough to script mxj attributes with newdefault. I had to include them in the text attribute

ug. UG! Sad
