What are you using dict for?

January 5, 2014 | 3:03 pm

The more I use dict the more I like it. I’ve grown to really enjoy how gracefully it lets me build upon my patch. Though the documentation is limited I’ve been able to do 90% of what I want with max objects alone, and a free JS script from Emmanuel Jourdan here does the rest.

I haven’t seen many big patches that use dict though. I’d like to see a really good sequencer that uses dict but haven’t found any out there (I’m working on one). What are you guys using it for?

I’ve been experimenting with using Dict to store parameter names and info for modules in a larger patch so that I can easily send modulation data to any parameter with [forward] and similar.

I would like to know if anyone has found a way to get dicts to send a bang when they have been changed.

I would love to see what others are doing with it, it can be a bit tricky to find out more advanced things it can do in javascript for those of us who are not more experienced programmers.
