unpatch




unpatch is the instrument manager. It is used to load new instrument into the current session or close instruments. All connected clients have control over all instruments used in the session.

unpatch's user interface:

1)

Opens a file-open dialog to select an instrument to load. Only patches from the netpd/patches directory can be loaded as instruments.

2)

Alternatively, an instrument can be loaded directly by typing its name into the symbol box.

3)

Removes an instrument from the session. Make sure not to close an instrument someone else is currently working on.

4)

Shows the instrument's top patch window. This might be handy when you want to inspect or change an instrument's code.

5)

Displays the instrument's graphical user interface.

6)

Shows what is currently being uploaded to other clients.

7)

Shows what is currently being downloaded from other clients

8)

Saves the state of the current session, including the state of all instruments by opening a file save dialog.

9)

Loads a previously stored session from a file.
It is important to know that the session is only restored locally. Remote clients have to restart their unpatch in order to synchronize.
