pattrstorage maximum

July 28, 2008 | 8:28 am

Hi list,

Does anybody know if pattrstorage has some sort of maximum for storing
presets?
I’m building a patch at the moment that should create a preset-index for
each frame of video (@25fps).
Creating a short movie of 6 minutes would result in pattrstorage object
filled with 9000 preset entries.

Many thanks in advance!

There’s no built-in maximum, but you will probably run into some functional limitations at some point (slowdowns when doing lookups or writes). Let us know how it goes!

I know that if I creatde a pattrstorage with just two slots, 1 and
10000, that I get a significant slowdown in lookup, but it does work.
Somewhere I’ve got an unfinished project that has over 3000 entries &
it works, but it’s ultimately designed to compilte in non-real-time,
so a bit of sluggishness doesn’t matter to me….

This shouldn’t really be the case (I thought I fixed this at some point). I’ll look into it.

OK, I can’t really find anything strange going on. Please submit a patch which exhibits the problem to support@cycling74.com and we’ll take it from there.

Thanks
Jeremy
