Switch 1 signal to 2 outs

Feb 25 2013 | 12:14 pm


I’m new here, hello everyone…I have a question, the manuals and online references didn’t helped me.
Currently Im working on a filterbox, and would like to put a switch to.
The switch should change the route of the FX, in Pre/post way.

There is a filter, then a distortion and then the output.
I would like to switch the position of the distortion unit, with a toggle. :

On : Input then fitler then distort then output
Off : input then distort then filter then output

What kind of object could solve my problem?

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the help.
My problem is that the out 2 in gate is always closed :(

you should add 1 to toggle.

0 shuts off everthing, 1 opens first outlet, 2 opens second outlet

Yapp, just realized it.
I’ve tried to set up every button or text button to make 1 and 2 outs, but every sends 0 or 1
Is there any chance to solve this?

Or is there an object what can increase the output with +1?

Why yes. The "+" object.

You would really benefit from a little time with the tutorials – in the case of your original question, Basic tutorial 21 on controlling data flow would be helpful, I think. In relation to your original question, take a look here.

If you’d like to know a little about routing signals, this may be helpful.
