blue/red inputs

i’m relatively fresh, though i’ve cooled to room temp. and i can’t figure out why some inputs are red and others blue. i know this is a max5 thing, and even my programming teacher wasn’t sure.

Choose Max Help from the Help menu and type “blue inlet” into the search box and watch what happens

aka “As you move the mouse over an object’s inlets you’ll notice that some are blue and some are red. Blue inlets are known as “cold” inlets. They do not produce any output (out the object’s outlets) directly. Red inlets are “hot” inlets and can produce output when you send a message into them.”
