    Does anyone knows an object that works like cycle but with symbols?
    cheers

      symbols?
      try [cycle~] -- [snapshot~ 20] -- [tosymbol]
      (and make sure to look at the help file for snapshot~)
      but why symbols??? that doesn't make much sense to me, on its own.

      why dont you just make a menu object with those symbols populating it, and then send numbers?
      MUCH easier.

      ej.cycle does that, but you can make simple abstraction with a counter and a gate.

      Cheers Emmanuel, that's perfect! I know it is quite simple to do but why? i mean, life is short and that's quite a simple operation that surely had already been solved. Anyway, thanks again, i downloaded all your externals so thanks a lot for them too!

      jit.cycle works with symbols, if you have jitter.

      Thanks,
      I'm sure ej.cycle is less efficient than the same process in abstraction. So for performance reasons, I'll prefer to do that in patch as bellow, or even better, use jit.cycle (Thanks Jeremy, I forgot that one...).
