Once you have a lot of preset files, it is difficult to remember which file corresponds to which specific properties of the cabbage instrument. Can the texteditor be used for saving a short comment about each preset properties?
As far as I understand, the preset system saves ONLY the state of widgets.
How could I stave the status of variables ?
The idea behind is to use less widgets. I working on a new synth using GEN 19 routine.
For that I want 12 partials ( each of them being represented on screen by a check box member of a radiogroup).
Each partial needs 4 parameters. I wish to make only 4 encoders and not 48 ! (Yes I am lazy)
Depending on the checkbox ticked, the encoder values would be sent to global variables corresponding to the partial number.
Code would be something like :
if changed:k(chnget:k("checkbox_X"))==1 then
if chnget:k("checkbox_X")==1 then
; check values of encoders and store them into gVariable for partialX
if changed:k(chnget:k("checkbox_Y"))==1 then
if chnget:k("checkbox_Y")==1 then
; check values of encoders and store them into gVariable for partialY
But I afraid that if I save the preset, only one set of value will be saved (i;e; the last value entered into the encoders) and all the other partial will be forgotten.
