reverse patching?

Jan 23 2012 | 8:53 pm

is it possible in max to connect a number of objects by starting at the inlet of the feeding object, and connecting to the outlets of multiple objects (via holding shift key)? so basically the reverse of connecting a number of secondary objects to one primary object.

I didn’t completely understood but maybe this vid can help (not sure at all)

not sure if it works in Max 6

johnr, yes, with max 6 you can do this exactly as you describe, but not an earlier max (not even with toolbox installed). got max6? just do it!

In Max5 on a macintosh you can connect backwards (so to speak) from inlet to outlet by holding down the "ctrl" key before you select the inlet. If you want to do this for multiple connections just press and hold the "shift" key after selecting the inlet.

Oh wow, I’ve been on Max 6 for a while now and didn’t realise this feature existed… excellent thank you!
