How to use(include) patch in my aplication? the problem is how to call any existable patch and use it. example: i want to use pd reverber and i don't how to do it. when i'm in edit mode i put an object on the screen and write in ''pd reverber'', but nothing happen. it's just text in object rectangular but no connection....
Problem with patch using
if you create an object called 'pd <insert text here>' it will create what is called a subpatch. what should happen is that a new window containing a blank canvas will open. if you have a patch already made, and saved as a seperate file, and you would like to use it within an another patch, then it is called an abstraction. to use an abstraction within a patch, simply create an object called 'reverber' where reverber.pd would be the name of the extant patch. hope this helps.
i suggest reading through the manual on the section pertaining to subpatches and abstractions.
