mute~

Disable signal processing in a subpatch

Description

mute~ provides an easy way to disable only the signal objects in a subpatcher. (An alternative is to use pcontrol, but this disables all objects (i.e. MIDI) and is slightly slower.)

Arguments

None.

Messages

int behaviorial-flag [int]
1 turns off the signal processing in all objects contained in the subpatch connected to the mute~ object's outlet, 0 turns it back on.
list behaviorial-flags [list]
Sending the list 1 1 to the mute~ object will mute any subpatchers of the patcher object to which the message is sent. Similarly, sending the list 0 1 to the mute~ object will unmute any subpatchers of the patcher object.

Information for box attributes common to all objects

Output

Signal-Processing: Connect the mute~ object's outlet to any inlet of a subpatch you wish to control. You can connect mute~ to as many subpatch objects as you wish.

Examples

You can mute all processing in any patcher or other subpatch
