Can you label an object witha global ‘user defined name’

for example if I set up an simple oscillator and it had three arguments that define frequency, amplitude and phase could I somehow attatch a global tag so that I could call them a1, a2, and a3, so that later I can write an expression that says ‘if a1 >= 50 then …………

Or do you have to use the ‘names’ given to max objects and their attributes etc when you are writing an mathematical expression

Not that I’m aware of, but everything that you’re talking about can be done via send/receive, pvar, value, coll, etc.
