Hi, what exactly does [next $1( do when you connect it to [clone] 's inlet? The way I understand it is that it can send a number to all instances of the cloned object but not at the same time?! If so, how long does it take between each bang?
@namie216 "next" will send the $1 value to the next clone every time it is banged. So it will step through the clones 0,1,2,3,4 etc.
Say you have 8 clones (0-7).......
If you send 10 11 12 (3 bangs) into [next $1 .......and the last time you sent a message it went to clone 5.... then 10 will go to clone 6, 11 to clone 7, 12 to clone 0.
There is no "time" as such. 3 bangs can all pass at the same logical time (but in order of course) although control messages are only processed between audio blocks (normally 64 samples).
