Best approach to name presets?


    Apr 20 2014 | 9:19 pm
    I want to be able to name/rename presets and manage them with the Pattrstorage object.
    So far the object that allows me to name/rename items is the Umenu object.
    If I modify Umenu's itmes using messages in Max, changes are persistent, all works as expected... but if I do the same within Ableton, changes to preset names are lost after reloading the project.
    Is there some way I can keep those changes to the Umenu within Ableton Live?
    Is this the best approach to have presets renamed?
    Note that I don't want to use external files (i.e. .json data files)
    Thanks!

      as first guess, you'll need to either store a preset as external file, or resave m4l patcher after changing preset. Or is there a solution to embed in live session ?

      I think I will store the individual ascii chars on individual live.number objects, so they will save automatically and without using external files.

      I asked a very similar question in this post.
      I think using parameter mode with the dict object saves the data without using an external file.

      Indeed Mike, is the approach I'm using now.
      Thanks!
