Data routing

    May 10 2006 | 1:13 pm
    Hello everyone,
    Does anyone know if there is any way to route data in the same way you would signals, when using matrix~ and matrixctrl? I want to be able to route the data from a key object to one of four select objects. But the data needs to be routed to one at a time, with only one select object receiving the data at any given moment.
    Can anyone help as i've nearly chewed my teeth out trying to work it out?
    Here is what I mean:

      Router, in the standard distribution, or if your on a Mac, Panaiotis' matrix will also do the job - it's at: html

      Just noticed that router is NOT part of the standard distribution, but is in fact a Jitter object. However, I think it's one of those like jit.cellblock that you can keep after the trial version of Jitter runs out. This info, btw, I gleaned from searching for the word 'matrix' at www.maxobjects com ('cos i couldn't remember the name of router) - a top tip for any such query, cheers Roger

      Sorry folks. Does router work in the same way as matrix~?
      Whoops. Thanks for the info folks. I have router and it does indeed work exactly as matrix~ for my needs. I can be so stupid! I did read the help file but it suggested that it didn't so I gave up.
      Thanks again

      Sorry guy, see help file and reference (Max reference).

      While you're checking the docs on "router", look for "forward" too. Routing one source to one destination and having it variable its all you need.

      You know, you can set "only one cell per column" in the inspector for the matrix object, and then the whole top portion of your patch is unnecessary.

      Thank you all. I have gone with the gate patch, as it's nice and simple and does exactly what I need. Once again thank you.
