Matrixctl Column Set Short Cuts


    Jun 03 2006 | 12:42 am
    Hi all,
    I did a search here, and I know it's been said a dozen times... so I won't mention how badly there needs to be a 'setcolumn' command. Ahem...
    BUT - I will ask...
    Before I reinvent the wheel trying to accomplish this... has anyone made a patch that does that effectively? I need an easy way to take the data I've gathered using GETCOLUMN, and to put it back into the Matrixctl...
    Cheers,
    Joel

      maybe it didn't happen because its too simple ?

      I just reinvented the wheel, which took less time than writing this
      mail... ;-)
      Still, if you have changing sizes of matrixctrl, a set collumn/setrow
      command could still be helpfull...

      What's needed so much more than that is for matrix~ itself to accept
      the "setcolumn" and "setrow" messages. Matrixctrl is good for routing
      type situations, but it's not well-suited to open-ended gain
      situations. "Setcolumn" and "setrow" would allow multislider to work
      directly with matrix~.
      Inevitable plug:
      I have a couple of abstractions that do this (PM.MatrixSetOutlet and
      PM.MatrixSetInlet); e-mail me off-list if interested. Also, I've got
      a version of the "function" object (the graphical envelope tool) that
      works with matrix~, if anyone's interested. (so you can have envelopes
      on individual matrix~ connections...)

      I am, send it on list, 'cause I guess I am not the only one....
      There are a lot of "common" problems you seem to have a bag of solutions
      for. Even if I have as well solutions, I am always interested in how
      others solve the same problem. Sometimes my solutions are suboptimal... ;-)
      The Idea to putting individual envelopes on matrix points is an
      interesting concept for a lot of applications, especially additive
      synthesis...

      Cheers guys,thanks.
      I'll see if I can modify that to do what I need it to do.
      I'm struggling to find a way to save the state of a large matrix - 64 X 128 - SO I've created a small patch that reports and saves to a COLL object, but I've been struggling to get the info back into the matrix.
      Thanks again,
      Joel
