Max/MSP Coll Data separation

    Dec 15 2011 | 1:13 pm
    Hi there,
    A seemingly simple one this but I just can't seem to get it working correctly after trying for a while. Basically, I have a [coll] object that stores 10 different values on increasing size against 10 index integers, for example:
    0, 33 1, 87 2, 400 etc (all the way to 9, 2223)
    I want to be able to route the values from coll into 10 separate integer boxes for further calculations in the patch. I have tried unpacking, routing, separating and can't seem to figure it out.
    Any help would be hugely appreciated, along with a brief explanation - I expect it is just one object that I am misplacing or misusing.
    Thanks in advance,

      If you just want to route the coll according to storage slot you have two options. 1) store as a list, with the first element being the same as the index number. You can use [t b i i] to [pack i i i] 2) [zl join] the outlets of coll that report the value at index and index number, then [zl rot 1] or [zl rot -1] I can't remember which right now but I think for two elements it doesn't matter.

      Thanks for the help cap10subtext, but this still isn't working - perhaps if I post the patch then it may help:
      Again, I am trying to get the 10 integer values out of coll - I tried what you said but couldn't get my head around it. Thanks a lot

      [route] is the solution:
      you may have to fill the [coll] first after pasting the patch

      thanks for your help but i finally figured it out - it required a pack post coll and then zl rev, then routed into 10 int boxes. thanks for your help

      Ah, yeah, forgot to mention route.
      Anyways, here's what I was yammering about, but glad you got it sorted.
