allo, ive got about 100 pictures that get loaded when i start up my drum machine of course when i change computers the path is different how can i make them work on different computers without loading them up?
There’s two ways i use to avoid problems when transferring a patch to a different computer:
- When loading files, i use ‘path’ to [thispatcher] to get the file path the patch is in. You then append the subfolder / file names to load the correct files (you can even go up directories with [regexp (.+/)([^/]+)]
- When other folders on your drive need to get loaded, you can add them to the search path. You could build a loader which adds the correct paths from a text file, and then create a separate text file for each computer. I still use the ‘path’ to [thispatcher] here to add all the subfolders of the patch directory to the search path.
