Pattr dynamically exclude from capture?

    hey guys, I am just getting started with pattr and thought it might make this patch i am building much easier however the Active parameter seems a bit odd. I have no trouble using active to prevent a parameter from being recalled, but what if i dont want it to get stored in the first place.
    I'd rather have my pattr presets have some null values on capture and then have then not effect that parameter on output, rather then always capturing values and toggling off recall.
    I'm imagining it's something simple i'm missing...

      one thing u could do is to test if variable is active and if its not then replace the unwanted data with a string to filter out (see crude example below). but its probably not what you meant by simple, and seems a bit fiddly!
