I need to set a different automap number for each control across several duplicated subpatchers.
Eg, if I have a subpatch with 2 controls, automapped to 1 and 2, and I use it 4 times within a parent patch, the controls automap to my Push like this:
1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2
Ie, grouped by number. Makes sense.
What I want to do is give each control a different order number so they'd automap like this:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Ie, grouped by subpatcher.
The difficulty is that I'm using the same patch multiple times, so presumably I need to dynamically set the automap numbers (or 'long name' parameters would work too, I think) for each control in each instance of the subpatch. A bit like preceeding object names with '#0' in MaxMSP, or '---' in M4L, but neither of those methods work in this case.
Anyone know what I'm on about / if it can be done?!
