Using preset object from inside subpatch in the main patch

May 5, 2013 | 11:40 pm

I’ve got a subpatch with preset object inside. I would like to somehow copy the preset object function to the main patch with all the stored values included, so I don’t have to open the subpatch every time I want to change the preset. Is that possible? Thanks a lot.

Using [preset]‘s facility for saving to a file on disk, you can save from the one in the subpatcher and import into the one in the main patcher. If I understand your question correctly, this should do it.

But wait…the objects your ‘inner’ preset are controlling won’t be in the ‘outer’ patch – so this strategy won’t work. Can’t you simply recall the inner preset’s patches by numbers sent from the outer patch?
