pattrstorage & symbols


    Oct 28 2008 | 3:30 am
    running max5 on a windows xp sp2
    is there a convenient way to store/recall presets in pattrstorage using symbols/ characters as arguements?
    i know this is a stretch, but if there isn't then I have to write a coll that stores symbols as indices and #s as elements, which is pretty sloppy and i would need to save them for each piece.
    thanks for any help

      yes...
      hint: subpatcher [p slotnames] in the help file of pattrstorage...
      You might still need to store them in a coll or menu for recall purposes...

      You might want to look at the p.storage abstraction which enables storing
      presets as symbols. You can also edit the symbols and presets in a number
      of ways. You can get it here:
      pelado

      ok, so i stole the pelado method and used the umenu's # output (thanks buddy.) Just remember to set the output and then bang it, as I don't think umenu has a convenient way to just output a given index.
      does anyone know how many presets pattrstorage can hold? I have #s going into the thousands I'm gonna see if it dies or not.

      Not sure, but I do know that it can hold thousands of pattrs with dozens of presets, so it seems to scale up pretty well.
      Let us know if you hit a limit, I'm sure people will be interested to know.

      You can use the messages
      [getslotname ]
      or
      [getslotnamelist]
      either will allow you to recall them.
