I have some time ago posted the wish for the possibility of having multiple send nodes send to the same receive node.
I am currently trying to make a more clever control methodology for my visuals patches, unifying the way it is working and also making the integration of several patches easier. I usually just use a midi controller but often I would like to use other sources of control data to control the parameters. Therefore I would like to construct some type of control matrix that could work universally across multiple subpatches.
these are some of my thoughts so far.
For this I would like to have a way for a subpatch to announce what SendStrings the R node is listening to. For this I would like to have a sort og channel like ControlNames or something similar that can tell a central patch which controls are available for a certain patch and thus what channels it is listening to.
So far I see two options, either using a text file where i have all relevant subpatches write its controls to or udp to broadcast the available parameters.
Perhaps I am thinking this wrong, any suggestions are welcome.
