preset not reloading automatically in live: again!

    Oct 27 2013 | 3:28 pm
    Hello, sorry to bother again with the same issue.
    I have a patch (M4L drumbox simple - check below). If you create some pattern and save in the preset box, everything is fine, presets are saved and recall within the session. I then save my while live set, I play with another live set... and then I reload the first live set I saved: unfortunately the presets are gone :-(
    I tried everything.. it doesnot work.. can you help?

      Here is the patch I am talking about :-) in a zip format :-)

      i am always confused with the pattrstorage system but : don't you just need to put your pattrstorage's name as the pattrstorage attribute in the preset's inspector ?

      yes you are right, but if I do this then I get a stack overflow :-(

      A stack overflow only has to do with patching logic, not the pattrstorage, you can set priority in the pattrstorage settings for each parameter to determine in which order they're triggered, I would still say you don't need that. Right to left is the key here.

      Thanks for your replies guys! I have quesitons: . "you can set priority in the pattrstorage settings for each parameter to determine in which order they’re triggered, " -> Oki, I will check eventhough I can't remember being alowwed to change priorities? Anyhow, I will check.
      . "Right to left is the key here." -> what do you mean? you mean that I should change (graphically) where I located my modules within the patche? don't quite get it :-(

      A bit late to the party, but if your original problem still persists, you could check your setup with the patch attached to this post:
      In short: If the presets are recalled properly with that patch, then there's probably a flaw in your device. If the presets are messed up when reloading a Live set containing the test device, then you seem to have a buggy setup.
      The latter was my problem, a clean install (uninstalling Max, erasing everything Max related from the computer, install latest version) of Max solved it.

      Hello, sorry for my late answer , I was busy on other matter :-)
      I tested your patch, etc. The patch you propose wokrs fine :-) SO it is not coming from my installation.. grrr! I would have like that it was due to my installation.
      So I decided to look at the code (as you explained) and changed it, I found a solution.
      It is wokring now but a friend of mine who tested it on his computer told me that ableton live cashes everytime he save a presets (clicking on the little dots in the presets make ableton live crashes).
      I am fed up! I will send a crash report to ableton live and cycling... let'see.
      thanks again, you advice helped me a lot :-) I keep you inform.
