pattr client internal data structuring


    Sep 05 2006 | 9:29 am
    I'm exposing the internal data of a js built sequencer to pattr. It consists
    of multiple note an cc patterns. Right now I combine all data into one big
    pile, making it unreadable when viewing the pattr xml file. I like to
    somehow expose the data to pattr in a way that it's stored in different xml
    nodes. Each sequence its own node for example. I suspect it isn't possible
    because you'll need to separate the data into different pattr clients to
    structure the xml file. Any suggestions? Maybe a nice feature for a future
    release? I will eventually port the thing to C, so if something like this is
    possible using the sdk that would be helpful too.

      At this time, there's no method for creating structured data for
      pattr from a single object. I agree that this would be a nice
      feature, though.

      Or you could define attributes in your JS object, and use an
      autopattr in greedy mode to suck them all out.

      Thanks Jeremy, I'll look into using attributes for this.
      best, -thijs
