pattr edit multiple slots at once

February 3, 2006 | 9:45 pm

Is it possible to edit one parameter in the current and stored presets all
at once? I frequently find myself in a situation where I have multiple
presets stored and change my mind about one setting. It would be really nice
to find a way to edit all the presets at once for this one parameter.

I’m sure this is possible to do Thijs. You could maybe setup a bang button to trigger a loop to save the desired parameter to all storage locations. I use uzi object to gather umenu text items in text objects for preset name storage purposes, I guess the uzi object could easily write the parameter to all locations in sequence.ie, set up a loop to increment the store location on a store message for the chosen parameter/object.

Hope this helps

indeed setstoredvalue + uzi will do. that’s my second stupid question on a
friday night. I give up. thanks.

Check the (probably undocumented — sorry) "setall" message. My notes
tell me that it "manually change a path’s value at all slot numbers –
does not send anything to the object" — syntax would be "setall
object::path ".
