I've gotten part A to work, but I can't get part B to work.
The problems is that with dropfile, the umenu never updates and I don't know how to trigger or refresh a folder in umenu. Probably not through dropfile, but I don't know any better. Another is that I don't know how to update the random maximum 'number' as the number can't be fixed as the files build.
Is there a way to simply have the patch autoplay and autorandom all files within a specified folder instead of using a maximum number?
PS: My recording patch more or less works, however I had to rig in a delay bang to make the open message get triggered first before the record message. I think there must be a much more elegant way of doing this, if so, can someone please advise me?
