just two quick remarks:
1. there is a difference between an abstraction and a subpatch
2. i think it's worth it to show beginners how to count with internal objects. relying on a [counter] object - and you don't specify which one of the varous around - is asking for trouble.

> Hello List -
> I gave a workshop on using Pd at this year's Megapolis Audio Festival in Baltimore, MD.  I created a patch that was meant to be used as a launch-pad to get people patching as quickly as possible.  This is my first attempt at doing something like this, but I would really like to further the idea of creating self-contained introductory patches that get people excited about Pd.  I think that this could be a great tool for one-day workshops in schools or at conferences where people have the interest in, but not necessarily the background in sound and/or programming.  My idea with this patch was to have some examples of different ways to make sound, an easily accessible reference chart, and then a sub-patch containing a whole bunch of ready-made objects for people to copy/paste and string together.  The hope was that eventually people would break down the objects I created in order to figure out their inner workings.  Some of that started to happen at Megapolis but the workshop was fairly short and we had covered a lot of material.
