I could try to do it myself as well. but as I suspected that I would find  
only an outdated wiki page with some loose information on it, I found it  
better to ask who really knows about it.

thanks, but that doesn't really answer my question, it just hints at it.

anyway, I downloaded a couple files, and saw no reference subatch. I  
downloaded rj_accum-help.pd and rj_senergy~-help.pd, and they were normal  
help patches. Which ones did you meant?

And btw, one thing I would do is to download the rjdj library to study. is  
there a place where the whole pack of files can be downloaded?
