[universal] from one [bpatcher] to another

February 8, 2014 | 1:35 pm

Greetings, I have bpatchers within a parent patch. Is it possible to have have [universal 1] within one [bpatcher] send a message to the objects in other [bpatchers]? Or would this [universal 1] have to be located in the parent patch? Is there a way around this?

I don’t think so. But you can send a message via a send object from a deeper level sub patcher to a universal object in the parent patcher which will in turn distribute the value to all same level and sublevel patchers.

That ended up being my solution…I was hoping I could do it from a bpatcher since I am making modules that can be called independently and had one that would control the others. I’ll just create a custom start template.
thanks for your help!
