How to copy a preset from one [pattrstorage] to another [pattstorage] ?


    Jun 03 2012 | 10:25 am
    I have a sub-patch with a pattrstorage in it.
    There are two instances of the sub-patch in my main patch, each with its own json file for storage.
    Now, I need to copy _one_ preset from one pattrstorage to the other. Is this possible ?
    cheers, jan.

      Check out the pattrstorage 'copy' message - it may be of use. You can alternately do what you need by editing the stored .json file(s) in a text editor - not so practical if you need to do it frequently but easy enough for a one off., the individual presets are pretty clearly delineated (even if they haven't been named).

      'Doh !
      I should have rtfm ;) Didn't know, that the copy message can take a named pattrstorage as source.
      thanks a lot & sorry for the noise !

      hey, I scanning the forum right now and dont find any working solutions for copying pattrstorage presets. (https://cycling74.com/forums/pattrstorage-%22copy%22-message-not-working-properly )
      in my case I have a pattrstorage in the main patch and I want to edit the data on the preset slots from a bpatcher while the presets in the main patch get recalled randomly...
      so I have the situation while the mainpath pattrstorage gets called to jump to preset 3 I want to set preset 10 to a certain value. do you have ideas how to implement this?
      I thought it would make sense to try the pattrstorage copy message but I could not get it to work so far.
      any hints welcome!
