begin~ Reference

Define a switchable part of a signal network

begin~

Description

The begin~ object is OBSOLETE. For controlling audio processing in a patcher, please use the poly~ object. The begin~ designated the beginning portion of a signal network that could be turned off when not needed. The outlet of begin~ was connected to the signal inlet of another object to define the beginning of a signal network that would eventually pass through a gate~ or selector~. This feature became obsolete in Max 6 and begin~ no longer does anything at all.

Examples

Discussion

One begin~ can be used for each gate~ or selector~ signal inlet. When the signal coming into gate~ or selector~ is shut off, no processing occurs in any of the objects in the signal network between the begin~ and the gate~ or selector~.

Arguments

None.

Output
