Can’t get the *mapping* state of a device within a bpatcher to save using autopattr – bit out of my depth here but really hope to be able to get this working! I’ve asked over at the Ableton forum – but no-one’s been able to help so far, can you?
Basically I want to get this device saving / recalling mappings to different bits of Live, so I can then use a few knobs on my MIDI controller to access whatever I need for that part of the set. Do you think this is possible? Simplified code below – the bpatcher is over on the right. Dial states save fine but nothing else – yet!
Can’t get pasted patch to save on here for some reason so I’ve added it here: http://pastebin.com/qdNvYkwG
There are some differnces between pattr behavior when using the live family of user interface objects. see http://cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/live_pattr.html. The most important thing there in your case may be:
"The autopattr object provides an easy to way manage the state of standard Max objects, but it will not work with the [live objects'] parameter system, so objects that are attached to an autopattr will not be seen by Live. If you want a pattr parameter to appear for modulation etc, you will need to add a pattr object for each instance."
Another thing to look into is using the "greedy", autoname", and "autorestore" attributes of the autopattr and pattrstorage objects.
Ah, thanks John. I’m amazed how complicated it can be to get simple things working in M4L …. maybe if I just de-encapsulate everything, would that be a quick fix?
