Changeable Argument in gen~


    Jul 03 2012 | 12:11 am
    Hello,
    I'm making a bpatcher abstraction which I will use multiple instances of it.
    The abstraction has a buffer~ object which has its own independence from the other instances as its name contains a changeable argument in its name. This changeable argument is set to the first argument of the bpatcher.
    Now, I have a buffer operator in gen~ in the bpatcher abstraction and I want it to recognize the buffer~ outside gen~.
    The challenge is that gen~ can have only one argument (the name of the referred gen~ file), and "args" is not valid unlike for poly~ or pfft.
    I attached a simplified example to this message -- obviously it's not working well as gen~ has no argument.
    Does anyone have a good idea?
    Many thanks in advance!

      sadly, Gen cannot handle the unique id arguments.
      for loading unique buffers simply send a message to do so. example attached.
      (this is all in the gen help file by the way)
      good luck.

      This solution is perfect.
      Thank you!

      Yes, this is the recommended way to do it. There are no plans to support #1, #0 etc. in Gen.
