pattr edit multiple slots at once

    Feb 03 2006 | 9:45 pm
    Is it possible to edit one parameter in the current and stored presets all at once? I frequently find myself in a situation where I have multiple presets stored and change my mind about one setting. It would be really nice to find a way to edit all the presets at once for this one parameter.

      I'm sure this is possible to do Thijs. You could maybe setup a bang button to trigger a loop to save the desired parameter to all storage locations. I use uzi object to gather umenu text items in text objects for preset name storage purposes, I guess the uzi object could easily write the parameter to all locations in, set up a loop to increment the store location on a store message for the chosen parameter/object.
      Hope this helps regards leigh

      indeed setstoredvalue + uzi will do. that's my second stupid question on a friday night. I give up. thanks.

      Check the (probably undocumented -- sorry) "setall" message. My notes tell me that it "manually change a path's value at all slot numbers - does not send anything to the object" -- syntax would be "setall object::path ".

      nice! exactly what I need, and you're right, it's not documented.
