Possible to Open/Close a Patcher Window Without CLICKING?

November 27, 2010 | 1:49 pm

Hi – I am not a fan of using the mouse when playing music, but need to navigate a large looper system I have built, where there’s a number of modules that are encapsulated as patchers. Is it possible to open patcher windows WITHOUT clicking?? A simple open/close message of any sort? Thanks :)

Hi,
Do you mean something like [pcontrol]? It can definately be hooked to something other than the mouse.

Cheers,
Panos

pcontrol! very nice. roman, also thanks for the second method, though pcontrol is a bit more direct.
