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:
cd "C:\Users\A hart\Documents\Pd"
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?
