is there a way to retrigger all the load bangs on the stage without connecting a bang to each?
Check out the "universal" object.
My favourite solution to this is not to have loadbangs scattered all
over the patch – wherever you have a loadbang replace it with a receive
with an appropriate name – in a separate patcher (I usually call it
‘init’) put one loadbang, which bangs a message box with messages for
all the receives – this makes it easy to add a reset button to bang all
the ‘init’ messages again.
It also allows splitting the messages into two or more message boxes
with delays, which can sometimes be very useful. It also makes it very
easy to alter your loadbang values if that becomes necessary at any
time, and having it all in one place makes it easy to remember what
those values are.
I also do like this. Then you can have a list of init messages, using
the [;somewhere do_something] messaging style, and store them in a big
init message or a coll. With this, you can send bangs, read presets, set
parameters, change DSP settings for each part of your patch.

yeah, but i recently (+/- 1 year) started using Bpatchers a lot –
using it a little bit like modules of a modular synth, from project
in such a case the initial init (!) message is not that handy….
and it also remind s a LOT the ircam way of building patches (not
sure if this one is a plus or not ! ;-)

I do this as well. Even more since I only recently started building
bigger patches. Very useful.
Someone posted a example patch for such initialisations procedures on
the list. I can’t remember who (maybe Stefan Tiedje ?) but one may
find it in the archives.

In this case the init can be within each bpatcher, but I would still
put it all in one place in that patcher.

I have no problem with that – some things just work! :-)>

of course – that was meant by the ;-)
you can just double-click on a loadbang object to re-loadbang your patch.
create a [thispatcher] object and send it the message ‘loadbang’
Could you talk again about the Notation, you have mentioned two weeks ago?
(you said : very flexible, is compatible with Final, Sibelius…..), Thanks.
This will trigger only the loadbang you double-click on. To retrigger
every loadbang in your patch/subpatcher you can send the loadbang
message to a thispatcher you put in the toplevel of your patch.
so it does! thanks. i guess i always only use 1 loadbang…

Right, in any case having only one loadbang allows you to make clean
JMSL (java music specification language)
the new version of JMSL has mxj objects that interface the Jscore common
music notation classes with max. max patches are also included to get
you started right out of the box. jscore can export scores so that
other cnm apps can open, edit and print the scores.
