Patcher Arguments Video Tutorial: Meet the patcherargs Object


    The Max patcherargs object lets you add the ability to set initial states for your own homemade abstractions using either typed-in arguments or @-style attributes. This 8-minute video will show you how to to both - you're the best judge of which approach works better for you!

      Who knew! This definitely scratches one of those itches I've had for a long time without quite realising! Thanks.

      I love patcherargs. Definitely saves having to use loadmess objects!
      I also find that filtering the input using "route," and sending the output of the right outlet of route (non-matches) to the input of the patcherargs route object enables an easy way to have "message" input control of attribute parameters using the same name.
      Thanks for spreading the word!

      I should probably attach an example (using GT's rowfill)
