Object Help (very simple question)

I have a simple question.

What is the opposite of a gate. A gate is a 1-To-Many and I need a Many-To-1 where you can select which input goes to the output. I know it’s simple but I can’t seem to find it.

Switch is no good as it only has 2 in’s, spray doesn’t let you easily select the output to use, sel seems to need the arguments already in the object. I just keep getting stuck.

I have 3 inputs and want to use a slider to select which one is routed to the outputs.
thanks

Ken

Switch has as many inputs as you want it to have :-)

[switch 20]

switch takes an argument to specify the number of inlets.
Look at the help patch.

For once a question I know the answer and then I’m 5th in the row…

OK thanks a millions. It’s always the simple things.

I kept using the gswitch rather than switch object… then I just looked in the related objects and there it was…

Well now for the next problem :)
