Help! I closed the mother.pd window


Hello all,

I accidentally closed the mother.pd window and it doesn’t seem to want to load up again… even after reboot.

Can anybody help me please?


Right, I have found the file and loading it reconnects the hardware to my patches. However, it no longer loads up automatically, which isn’t too much of a pain, but if anyone knows how I can get this back to normal, I’d be very grateful.



Where is the instance of mother.pd you are using?

Did you check the manual section titled “The mother.pd Helper Patch”?

I’m loading the one in the root

I had a look at that part of the manual, it doesn’t seem to cover what I’m looking for.


sorry, I linked to the wrong section. The link in my previous post is now correct.

Did you edit mother.pd?


I did not. I merely closed the window.


It doesn’t launch when you select a patch?


It doesn’t. Only the patch and feedback window open.


Does mother.pd load when you use encoder to select and launch patch?

Ah, yes it does. I hadn’t thought of that.


I’m sure I can cope with that.

Thanks for the help


Great - that is how it is designed to work :wink:
