I am sending 16 lists to a coll object.
Coll saves those correctly.
How can I store them and unpack them correctly, see attached patch?
I have entered the questions i have directly in the patch.
I think that the goal is still sort of ill-defined. Are the various instances going to be in abstractions or bpatchers? If so, pattr would work well without the coll part. Just expose the four numbers that you want to save to autopattr, and then make sure that the abstraction is exposed to autopattr at the top level.
That said, here's an edit of the original with coll that deals with what I think you want to do with the pack/unpack.
Thanks so much for your help so far.
Your ideas brought me to the final implementation:
I now use several Pack/Unpack/Forward/Pattr plus some Funnel/Spray/Pattr objects.
I also moved to Max4Live for the project, so that's why it is all a little different. I might come back to you for some final questions, but until then, thank you very much.
