one solution leads to another problem, xox sequencing

  • hi,
    sorry that i´m bombing this place with my questions lately but it´s kind of hard to learn max and the monome integration.

    on the 7th row i have a running light, synced to the transport, just like the old roland boxes had.
    i also have programmed those knobs to a toggle button, so i can activate/deactivate steps.

    the thing is that the running light disables my buttons, it´s only visually deactivated but still this is a problem. i looked into almost all patches available here but there´s so much going on, almost impossible to find how it´s done, plus there seems to be more then one way to achieve this.

    i´d be very thankfull if one of you guys could jump in and tell me a way how this could be done.

    thank you!

  • well, i actually have a working solution but somehow it feels terribly wrong to me ... there must be a better way.

    the first matrix receives the stateof the toggles and gets updated at the same rate the second matrix receives the running light, i hope to get at least a point in creativity for this ;)

  • like so ...

  • As you can see in raja's patch, the use of the [zl] objects is really helpful. In my opinion, you should really study [zl]'s help file.

  • @Raja: Thanks so much, very looking forward to give it a try and hopefully learn from it when i get home from work!

    @chapelier fou: will do, i hope the "hands on" of raja´s patch will help me in understing [zl] better too.

  • @raja: Nice patch.

  • @raja: i´ve been playing around with your patch the last hours and to be honest it´s way over my head, plus for some reason my buttons give me weird behaviour, for example if i push button 1 it also activates step 8 and so on, maybe my button has a conflict with your buttonfilter, i don´t know yet.

    many thanks again for this patch and your effort, i will continue to tear it apart and learn what´s actually happening there, it feels to me like this is a cruicial part when it comes to max in play with the monome!

    cheers!

    btw: meanwhile i reworked my patch a litte, according to some of your suggestions:
