    Hi everyone,
    Could somebody help me with this ? :
    I have this personne who uses morse code to create rythms that activate different effects or load soundfiles into buffers in his composition. Each sequence has a tempo and a certain number of beats. There are 265 sequences in the piece each of wich is very short.
    For an example, you can have a sequence who should be played at 60 per seconde (tempo) and who contains 15 beats. Each beat is devided in 4 --> in fact they are 16th notes.
    Now the idea would be to create a control patch. Maybe with detonate... or an abstraction... i don't know
    With an abstraction it could be something like You give two arguments which would be #1 = the tempo value, and the second one #2 would be the number of beats fro example. Now out of this abstraction, it would be possible to affect a send message to each beat of the sequence.
    That means you can control the effects you use or the sound you load into buffers according to a special rythm...
    Can somebody help me with this ?
    Thanks in advance for your time.
    Cheers. Seb

      I am using the CNMAT udp-read object ( and would like to set the port number with a loadbang-triggered message, rather than hard-coding it into a heavily-buried subpatch.
      The object's inlet reads 'Set the UDP port on this inlet' but I'm not sure how pass the port number. I tried giving it an int but it says 'udp-read: doesn't understand "int"'
      The help patch doesn't show how to do this... it must be pretty straightforward but I'm stuck. Any tips would be gratefully appreciated.
      It's also quite possible that I'm hitting one of many blind spots in my Maxing abilities, in which case I plead for your collective mercy. :)

      Sorry for inadvertently polluting this (already closed) thread, I have reposted the question in a fresh thread.
