How to autoload items from Umenu into Jit.Cellblock

Mar 28 2011 | 12:21 pm


Iv found this umenu scrolling system using Jit.Cellblock which works well but i was wondering if its possible to load all names of a folder that is loaded into Umenu to appear in the Cellblock menu?

Its for a performance patch so this way of file browsing that can be controlled via a midi control would be very useful!

Thanks in advance

I’ve just created a patch that does this to use in my own performance patch.

Check it out. Just drag and drop a folder into the drag and drop box and everything else should be automated.

Hopefully it helps!

Just cleaned up djsosofresh’s patch a bit– instead of using metro etc try uzi to speed things up

if i wanted to have the ability to scroll through the entries of the cellblock with a midi controller, how would i do that?

i have the ability to change which row is selected, however if you send cellblock a message to select a row that is not currently showing, it does not automatically scroll down to show that cellblock. how can i control the cellblock scrolling?
