saving and recalling

Feb 23 2010 | 12:56 am

hello all

im trying to recall a previous setting of a drum machine sound. so if i select snare all the effects setting will change to that, however i dont want to change everything just the effects setting. i was trying to get it to work with coll with minimal success due to stacking.

i hope that makes sense. attached is what ive come up with so far but its not very elegant and it effects everything.

thanks very much, james

have you looked into the preset or pattr objects? these should hopefully be of use to you

that example is using preset just thought there might be a better way of doing it. will have a look at pattr,
cheers, james

autopattr might be along the lines of what you’re looking for. what’s wrong with your preset system currently? (i cant see your patch because max is not installed on this computer).

pattr system gives you the ability to interpolate values between presets on included objects, which is nice.

just manually connect everything you want to store to the preset. In some cases it’s easier to go the opposite route, where you tell it what not to store, but I rely on this way. If you connect anything to it, nothing else will be stored, including the preset-recaller-number (you had excluded this, in your design that was the right thing to do, but doing it this way you don’t need to).

i forget you can change the colour on the wires! yeah ive currently got it attached everything else but its quite a big program so its really messy looking as its setting for the drum changes, effects and a synth so theres different setting for each of these so as you can imagine lots of wiring.

right ive change the design a bit and im a bit stuck now basically ive got 5 ‘sounds’ with 3 effects pitch volume and env all on the one set of dials. i was trying to use coll to remeber each of the 3 effects but on the 5 sounds. ive come to a bit of a halt and im now a bit stuck..

ive attached with what ive come up with but no luck, and there will be a problem with stacking.

thanks in advance, james

sounds like [autopattr] could be a good idea here, have you looked into it?

your [if then] statements could be replaced with the [==] object too

cheers for that == tip, ive been trying to mess with pattr with little success just trying to get my head round it. the autopattr seems like the direction to go i cant seem to get it do what i want it to..

this is the fail that i got with pattr!!
