Is this the way to call a function named after the active inlet? (Seems to work, but what would I know?)

Code: Select all

function rule()
  print( 'calling rule()' )
end

function arc.module.receive(inlet, object)
  fstr = arc.module.inlets[inlet]:getName()
  _G[fstr]()
end

Yes, that's absolutely fine. Very clever, in fact: I've never though of doing that!

Hahaha! Just luck on my part. Max does something like this with their Javascript wrapper. A message such as "rule 170" gets handled by the function named "rule" at the global level. If I have it correct, this is because Max's design is "one inlet, many messages", as opposed to Architect's "many named inlets". Thanks and Best wishes!

No prob. It's always inspiring to see other approaches to these things.

Am I right in guessing (based on the `rule` functions) you're making something based on cellular automaton?

Yes, reworking the basic engine that I presented on the other thread a while back. U-he had an offer that got me Presswerk and back into the Bitwig ecosystem very cheaply, and Bitwig holds the promise of better preset management. I prefer coding smaller Architect presets that are tailored to a single idea, rather than fleshing out some large tool that requires me to work on a UI, etc.. Architect and Bitwig's clip system is ideal for this.

Yeah, Bitwig has that one down. With groups/layers, the grid etc. one can make very complex things into presets easily. And you also can drag whole tracks into the browser as presets.
I start to use more and more Bitwig devices and less and less external gear (other than real instruments) lately.
It's really satisfying to see, that my initial intuition, when I first saw their beta announcement ages ago was right and it really has become the one DAW for me.
Doesn't always work out that way...

Colin- Could you note a request for the Lua API to be made available on GitHub or something? I do a fair amount of my Lua programming outside Architect, and it would be good to have a library I can require there. I realize lots of it is unusable outside Architect, but I'm thinking of the data structures, arc.array in particular. Thanks!

Yes, of course. I'll look into what that would involve after the next release.

Thanks. Any way you think is best. I’m not trying to suggest maintenance headaches.

Hey,
I've been playing around a bit with architect lately, and i'm running into some problems, probably because of my lack of experience with the graph based model.
I'm setting up an array, like in the screen shot below. Using "push element" to add the value of a slider into an array and then sending it to the next stage. It works, however when i restart the program / patch i get errors saying "array is not homogenous". Anyone have an idea how to solve this sort of situation?

It seems that when the patch is initialized the sliders are set to "undefined", I tried to use a signal to reset them at the beginning, but that's no good :D

Sorry to hear you're having problems. Would it be possible for you to send me the failing part in question from your patch? It'll be easier for me to demonstrate the correct approach if I can make changes to your preset itself. Either PM me, or attach it to a forum post, or you can email me at support (at) loomer.co.uk .

Something like that. I had to update a library to fix a (commonly) reported bug, and then to upgrade that library I had to upgrade another, and so on, and now I'm going through the painful task of having to update build scripts to accommodate these changes. Still, a bug fixed is a bug fixed, so can't complain!

Thanks Colin for all your effort to make Architect such a great sequencer!

Thank you for all your support. I'm frustrated it's taken me so long to get this (supposedly) "minor" update out; more so because there is so much in the next build which people have asked for, that it's almost painful to see the 10.2 build.
