storing problem with preset and multislider

    Oct 18 2007 | 2:59 pm
    Hi I am using a multislider with 512 sliders in order to peek a buffer Whenever i try to store this into a preset object i get a message saying that my message is too long. Is there a way to deal with these or do i need to use another object ? And if so which would be te appropriate one ?

      Yep, pattrstorage is the way to go.

      Thanks guys i'll try pattrstorage to see what happens .
      I wasn't aware of there beeing a limit either, i don't think it mentions something in the reference manual. Perhaps someone could confirm it.
      thanks again

      yes the preset limit is somewhere around 250 elements (not 256 actually, there are some header values in there I think). pattrstorage is the way to go --- if you recall using ints it's just like preset, and if you use floats, there's the interpolation. So you have all the preset functionality plus more... way better.
