Organelle mother primitives

much like any other programming language i study, i will immediately investigate; the primitives, the means of abstraction, and the means of combination. puredata covers all 3, but as the organelle is intended to be used/patched as a superset of puredata, im wondering what new primitives organelle patches have in total (eg what does the mother patch provide?). I know the basics like [r knob#] and [s screenLineX], but i am wondering what else is there?

I honestly don’t want to dig through your mother patch to figure this out, i feel like these things need to be listed somewhere by now. They likely are listed somewhere, so please inform me.

The Organelle mother.pd patch merely provides a bunch of sends and receives between your patch and the hardware… most of the messages it sends to your patch are shown right on the main mother.pd window (notes, knobs, etc…). It receives message to set the led color and set screen lines on the OLED.

There are also a few other messages that have been added as the OS has been updated, and you are right these really should be better documented. Graphics messages to the OLED screen are detailed here:

There are also a few messages allowing your patch to utilize the encoder wheel:

[s enableSubMenu]  -- send a bang from your patch to take control of the encoder
[r enc], [r encbut]  -- receive these values when the encoder wheel is turned or pressed
[s goHome] -- tell the OS to return to the main screen for selecting patches and settings  (since there is no dedicated home button, if your patch takes control of the encoder wheel, it must provide mechanism to return to main menu)

And there are a couple messages for disabling the default MIDI setup:

[s midiInGate] --  send a 0 or 1 to disable/enable mother.pd from receiving MIDI 
[s midiOutGate]  --  send a 0 or 1 to disable/enable mother.pd from sending MIDI

thanks, dude! that’s exactly what I wanted to know.
