How can I synchronize faders?

I have been trying to figure out how to synchronize two or more faders for a few hours now and can’t get any further than 3/4 synchronization.

Basically I have just been sending the slider value from the output of a signal level fader into the input of a second signal level fader. That makes signal fader 1 control both faders. Now, the problem is that when I try to take the slider value out of the second fader and send it back into the first faders value input it creates a feedback loop that crashes the patch.

There must be some conventional easy way to do this but every trick I could think of to try has not worked.

Any ideas?

I think you need a set $1 message box.

#P window setfont “Sans Serif” 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
#P message 200 227 39 196617 set $1;
#P slider 251 81 15 128 0 1;
#P slider 153 80 15 128 0 1;
#P connect 0 0 1 0;
#P connect 2 0 0 0;
#P connect 1 0 2 0;
#P window clipboard copycount 3;

highlight every line which starts with #P, copy and paste it into your max window.

then you’ll see.
