pv online refpage

Using the pv object

The pv object allows you to share data with all other pv objects that have the same name in the same patch and its subpatchers (including abstractions and bpatchers). Any message received in the inlet stores that message in all instances of pv with the same name. Sending a bang to any particular pv will output the message from that instance of the object.

pv Tips and Workarounds

Like the int and float objects, you can use pv to store a value and then retreive it with a bang. Unlike the other two, pv works with lists and symbols as well as ints and floats. This patch uses this capability along with the route object to distinguish between ints, floats, (numerical) lists, and symbols.

Sometimes you may want a local pv object to update immediately and have the others wait for a bang. Here we use trigger to make it happen:
