RNBO Patcher Right Toolbar

The right toolbar behavior and options are mostly the same as in Max, with a few exceptions.

Export Sidebar


Clicking on the Export Sidebar icon will open up the export sidebar panel. This window displays all available export targets and allows you to configure and export the code in the containing rnbo~ object to the target of your choice.

Reference Sidebar Dragging and Dropping Attributes

A convenient feature of the Reference Sidebar in RNBO is that attributes can be dragged and dropped onto an open patch. This creates a set object that can be used to target the referenced object's attributes. Note that fixed attributes cannot be dragged and dropped into the patcher.

Inspector Sidebar Fixed Attributes Setting

The Inspector Sidebar in RNBO features the ability to select an object in the patcher and change the fixed attribute properties of that object. For example, a fixed attribute such as @channels for groove~ can be set from the inspector if not already set within the groove~ object.

Currently Unsupported in the Right Toolbar

No Snapshots Sidebar

RNBO patchers do not have a snapshots sidebar panel. The rnbo~ object is snapshot enabled, but you must take snapshots in the Max patcher by highlighting the rnbo~ object. For more details see the RNBO presets guide.

No Mapping Support

There is no Mappings icon because RNBO UI objects currently do not support the parameter_enabled attribute and are therefore not mappable.
