I am new at using the Pd~ object, so forgive me if this is a super basic question. I have a pd~ object with a filter in it. I want to use my midi controller to use this filter, and i have some ctlin objects in my patch (that is in the Pd~ patch) and they aren't responding to midi. In the parent patch the midi is working fine. Is there some trick to this? I can try send and receive, but I was wondering what the best way is.
Also, I was going to put all my audio effects in Pd~ patches. Is it OK to have like 10 different Pd~ windows open? It would be a lot of terminal windows too, that's why I am asking.
Thak you for any insight into these issues.
