if I remember correctly then [value] is actually global, and is shared
between pd instances, but the help patch is not at all clear on that and
I have not used it. There have been discussions about this on the list
so you could try to search. Could you use that in some way to exchange
references to a table????? or to an audio file? it has a numeric
value, so that could be difficult.
But as you say it may be just as easy to use a file to save/share data
then pass its path/name to the other instance, e.g. via [netsend].
