Network Examples

Can anyone point me in the direction of patches that use network send/receive? Things like activating other patches, sending strings, etc?

/edit totally typed OSC when I meant to type network...

Re: Network Examples

So I'm trying to create a master patch that will control another patch. I need to be able to enable a macro patch that enables video file playback which is overlaid on other patches. Essentially I'm going to be manually controlling multiple installations of this patch from this master qtz.

One of the problems that I'm having is I can enable the patches with no issue, but I can't turn them off and it seems that it only does the one at the end of the multiplexer that I'm using. So I'm assuming that I need to send some sort of identifier for the strings/boolean values I'm sending as it doesn't know which one to start.

Re: Network Examples

honestly, i don't know what your problem exactly is. Since you can enable a patch through network, why can't you disable it ? . Try sending 0 or 1 as a string. I haven't had any problems so far. If it doesn't work for your needs, why not try OSC sender/receiver ? You could broadcast from the master computer and receive the same packets on every clients. It works very well.
