Sharing is also for Noobs - Konkreet Performer Abstraction

    Hi all -
    This is my very first post, although I've been lurking for quite awhile. I'm learning so much from the tutorials, help files, and all of you, so please be gentle with me.
    I recently purchased Konkreet Performer for my iPad, and it's very cool. I thought immediately - I'd love to use this in some of my Max patches. So after learning a lot about OSC-route from CNMAT, and after dissecting Alkama's OSC to Midi patch for Konkreet Performer (which I borrowed from) - I put together this general patch to do one thing (for now): gather all of the transmitted parameters from KP (objects, nodes, ribbons) and output them to send objects, so they can be used wherever I might think to use them.
    I use this as an abstraction, which I call "KPUTIL". I simply add it to a patch, and then I can say "r ---n1x" (i.e. receive node 1 x-coordinate) to get the X position of node 1, which I can then use as a value to modify something else.
    I'm posting this not only to say thank you to the community for helping me learn, but also to solicit feedback - there's probably a more elegant way of doing what I did. I also want to re-acknowledge the bits I took from Alkama's patch. That patch definitely got me on (what I think is) the right track.

      Thanks for sharing your patch !
      Sorry to be too noob for helping you to improve it. I use Alkama patch every day, no doubt you're patch will be usefull to me. Since I install Max6, I can't use it more than 5 minutes without crashing. I have contacted C74 support. They said it could be the osc-route external. You're using Max 6. Did you never have problems with Alkama's patch ?
