I'm making a custom object to loop audiofiles. Whenever I load a new soundfile in my patch (inlet#01), i send messages to reset my values (inlet#2 thru 7) to their desired value and it works fine within the patch itself. What I have trouble with, is refreshing the value of those toggles and sliders if they are connected to the inlets of my object. Iv'e learned about |set $1< to correspond two values, but is there a way to do that through an inlet and have the value from inside the object reflect on the outside toggle/slider/number?
Whenever I load a new sound, the patch resets inlet 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 to their start value (Within the patch), but the toggles sliders and numbers outside the object will stay where they are if I had previously moved/changed them. I'd like them to reflect what goes on inside the patch. It's not a deal-breaker problem, it's just really annoying to the user to have the wrong values being displayed when , really, they have changed.
