Subpatcher Inlets and Outlets

Subpatcher Inlets and Outlets

The inlet object moves data from a parent patcher to a subpatcher. The outlet object moves data from a subpatcher to a parent patcher. Inlets corresponding to the internal inlet objects appear at the top of the patcher object in the parent patch, and corresponding outlets appear at the bottom of the patcher object.
