Hi all - I'm getting so much out of the forum, it's great.
This should be a simple one. To avoid making 18 connections from one box to 18 others, I want to use send / receive. But its only within this patch, so if possible I'd like communication to stay 'local'
Not sure if there is a performance advantage, but one benefit of the names only being valid locally would be that I could use the same send/receive naming in other patches at the same time.
I read about the "---" in front of the buffer name, but I"m not getting it.
When I do 'send ---local' I can still receive the message with a 'receive ---local' in other patches, or even in other max for live patches on different tracks.
Am I misunderstanding how I should use "---" or is this just not what it is for?
