    Thanks for these suggestions. I'll give them a try

    Is anyone aware of any good Pd processes or patches for pitch analysis of a polyphonic signal? I know this is a notoriously tricky issue, and that there are FFT patches and objects like fiddle that handle monophonic analysis well. I have to identify some exact frequencies within a piece of microtonal music which contains drums etc.

    Oh I see what you mean. iemguts/canvasargs and so forth. Thanks for your response

    Hi,

    On the wiki page for Pd it states that the language has no constructor function, which is a routine for creating new objects by accepting arguments as variables. Isn't that essentially the same thing as dynamic object creation? e.g.

    [pack f f f...]
    |
    (objectname $1 $2 $3 ...)
    |
    [s pd-subpatch]

    Please excuse my ignorance on this if that's a stupid question, which it probably is.

    Figured it out. Left outlet of [popup] sends a bang on startup - I didn't realise. I take it that having 16 conflicting messages sent at the same time was causing it to crash

    I should mention - it seems that the vanished code is still there, but is invisible. Some sort of GUI issue I take it. If you select all, copy and paste to a new window, the code returns. Odd

    Hi

    I've been making a set of menus for a general MIDI set and have encountered a problem. The menus are graph-on-parent - When I open the subpatch, most of it gets wiped and I get the following error:

    (Tcl) INVALID COMMAND NAME: invalid command name ".x251b1e8.c.s25840b8.menu"
    while executing
    ".x251b1e8.c.s25840b8.menu delete 0 end "
    ("uplevel" body line 50)
    invoked from within
    "uplevel #0 $cmds_from_pd"

    Any insights on why this might be happening, and what I can do to get around it? I've attached the offending part of the patch - open the subpatch and you should get the same error

    Thanks

    Thanks so much for that! I know- the space in my user name has caused me all sorts of problems with Pd.

    Hi,

    I have a patch that involves running two instances of Pd which communicate using netsend and netreceive. There is a video processing patch and an audio processing patch which need to run independently in separate instances for the sake of efficiency.

    I'd like to have an icon linked to a batch file which can open both patches so I don't have to do it manually. Something like:

    @echo off
    cd "C:\Users\A hart\Documents\Pd"
    start patch_send.pd
    start patch_receive.pd
    exit

    However, what I'm finding is that Pd only opens the first file and ignores the second. I've tried many variations and workarounds but my ignorance of batch file commands is probably hindering me, and I'm sure the Pd command line could probably be used to do what I'm after if I had a better knowledge of that.

    Does anyone have any experience opening patches in separate instances of Pd using commands?

    Thanks

    Adam

    I might have misunderstood, but would it be something like this

    i.e. the output is the position of each bang along a timeline in milliseconds, which could then be plotted as positions along a graph

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
