Thanks for the response Rounik.
It's a shame.
I love random nature. But saving assignments, reloading, and opening in other sessions, etc. is cumbersome as it is an environment. I thought smart controls was going to be the solution for that dilemma! But when I saw data bytes 256, 257 etc. coming out of those knobs I realized it wasn't going to be easy! Nothing the transformer can do.
I tried to have a bypassed "dummy" plug in and random nature assign to that and maybe that could talk back to smart controls and on to active plugins (the smart control knobs do move when you move the plug in parameters) but that didn't work.
Any other ideas to try?
