      :) such a happy voice. I kind of like the little game of positioning objects for correct use, but it's been the driver of a facepalm on more than one accasion.

      nice tutorial and the end is great, but one thing is missed: you can use a trigger to send messages. like for uzi, when receiving a bang or target value, send a value in first trigger step (maybe for storage) and then enter resume for making uzi continue: "trigger i resume". you can do it with any message that doesn´t need an extra parameter value. trigger is genius!

      Great tutorial, thanks. There is a little problem with the patch at 3:14. When I increase or decrease the upper number with the arrow keys, it works as it should. But when I use the mouse to in- or decrease it very fast, the result of the subtraction looks quite arbitrary. There is a kind of a delay around. Is there a way to fix that?
