Hmm.. how to explain myself.
I have built a project which is expandable... it builds itself through abstractions defined in a table. However, at the centre is a matrix [matrix~ x y z] which needs to scale according to the numbers of abstractions x & y in the project.
I can create (within a patch) the largest matrix that might be required... with all of the string necessary to connect it..... [r inlet_1>$1] and for all of the inlets and outlets, and then open it with it's size defined (x=$1 & y=$2) so that the excess is discarded....
Does anyone know of a better way to achieve this? I could create the required number of [send] and [receive] objects according to the numbers of inlets and outlets.... but is there a way to connect them to the matrix during the creation of the patch?
