Evidently externals can be built to accept either a signal or a float,
and consequently they must be able to detect which type of object is
connected to an inlet.
Can I design a patcher/abstraction that can accept either a float or a
signal at a single inlet? I've been trying to figure out how to do
this, but every "solution" has some sort of error out to the Max
window, even if it's non-threatening. Is there a "type" object or
external that could aid in routing signals through one chain and
floats through another? Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious.
