I've been trying to figure out how to use coll to store my data. Since pattrstorage has been crashing max! I will mostly store multislider values. The way I figured out how to do this is;
multislider/value N/coll/back directly in multislider. This seems to work but I have a problem with the coll address. I read in the manual that coll recognizes the first int as the adress (this has been true). So of course when I want to store different slider presets having the 1st slider being of the same value , it replaces the last preset having the same adress.
Another thing, which is weird is that it crunches the multislider values. Say I have 256 sliders doing a visual wave, when fetching back my preset in coll I
will oddly get smaller picture version (but the number of sliders stays the same).
Also, when refetching my presets, the adress being odd random values, I tried using the messages next and previous in association with [counter] which is hooked up to the bang of my [value] object. The point is to make it my adress, in order to fetch back in chronological order.
Anyways, any advice on how to use this coll object to store presets would be greats.
One last thing, when I use (command I) on coll , I have the option to save coll with patcher. Does this mean I do not have to use the flag 0 1 message??
