Re: nested lists

What's the best way to retrieve data from a coll and join the symbol in front of the list? To make clear what I want: I have a coll like this: a, 1 2 3 4 b, 1.0 c, 0.0 10.0 100.0 where a, b, and c are names of pattr objects. Now I can send a message like 'a 1 2 3' to my pattrstorage, and the values ...

nested lists

I want to build a 'virtual clipboard' for pattrstorage objects so that I can 'send' a dump, put it into listlike object on the receiving end and then apply the values and store them in the pattrstorage in another instance of my patch ('paste'). I'm just wondering how to pack the dump to have a gener...

Re: Presets

Any way to export a patch from the 'preset' device? Want to be able to transfer them between various identical devices in my set. :?: :| As was already said, you need to use pattrstorage. As far as I know, there's no 'copy to clipboard' inbuilt functionality for pattrstorage. I remember even readin...

Re: 'Folding' a list

I don't think group is very useful here since it also requires to know the size of the list. Reg otoh. allows you to store a list and output it as many times as you like. So all you need is something like uzi to output a specified number of bangs, like so: Thanks. I needed to take care of the case ...

'Folding' a list

I'm looking for a way to 'fold' a list, so that a given list [1, 2, 3, 4] repeats until a certain index is reached.

Pseudocode:
[1,2,3,4].fold(10)
becomes [1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2]

I didn't find a zl object to do this, but I could be wrong...

Any ideas?

best regards,
Christoph

Re: preset, pattrstorage and many instances

There was a misunderstanding here. I wanted to store the contents of the preset object, but the preset is just intended as as 'UI' for the pattrstorage. Now everything works fine. The pattrstorage runs in parameter mode with 'initial enable' checked. No need to save anything to a separate file. Ever...

Re: preset, pattrstorage and many instances

ok, it's the message *getname*. It was not in the list of messages that is shown when I click and hold on the left inlet. Forgive the dumb question.

Re: preset, pattrstorage and many instances

when you say "across several patches" this could mean a lot of things, and I am wondering if there is another way to accomplish your task Are you trying to have 1 patterstorage that rules many patches? or 1 preset object that triggers several patterstorage objects? None of these, sorry for being un...

Re: preset, pattrstorage and many instances

It's better practice to name everything that has a relationship with pattrstorage in your patch. The Max help file on pattrstorage is a crucial read if you plan on making patches with preset devices. It WILL answer 80% of the questions you develop about pattrstorage. Thanks for your answer. I did r...

Syntax for reading random attributes

Is there a general syntax to read any attribute that is listed in the object inspector?

In my case, I want to send the varname of a [pattrstorage], whatever it is at the moment, to some place else in my patch.
As so often, I'm afraid I'm missing something obvious... :-)

TIA,
best regards,
Christoph
