presets with multiple iterations of bpatchers

Oct 26 2008 | 8:54 pm

I’ve been making bpatchers to serve as modules in piece-specific patches, but have avoided the whole preset thing. I use multiple copies of these sequencers most of the time.

what’s the simplest thing can I do?

I think you’ll have to download the attachments before pasting this patch to get the modules in there.

can’t look at the patches right now since max isn’t on the computer im using – but if you want to make "global" presets, so that all the bpatchers are affected, try dropping an [autopattr @autoname 1] object inside each bpatcher, then drop one in the mother patch. Then create a [pattrstorage] in the mother patch, and voila, all objects within all bpatchers and within the main patch are contained within the [pattrstorage] object. check out the tutorials/help files on these, they are very easy to use and much more dynamic than presets.

thank you Clouds.

the autopattr in each bpatcher was the missing piece for me.

I found the other posts regarding bpatchers and pattr, and now that I’ve got something that works on a basic level, I feel like I have a good footing to start learning all of the options for pattrstorage.

again, thanks.
