mc.combine~

Combine inputs into a multichannel signal

Description

The mc.combine~ object combines inputs (signals, multichannel signals, floats) into one multichannel signal. Unlike mc.pack~, every channel of an input multichannel signal will be included in the output.

Examples

Arguments

number-of-inlets [int]

Optional

The first argument specifies the number of inlets. If no argument is present, the object will be created with two inlets.

Attributes

chans [int]

The chans attribute sets a fixed number of output channels. By default chans is 0, meaning the number of outputs is determined by the total channel count of signals connected to the inlets of mc.combine~.

color [4 floats]

Sets the color for the object box outline.

fontface [int]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:

plain

2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'

fontname [symbol]

Sets the object's font.

fontsize [float]

Sets the object's font size (in points).

Possible values:

'8'
'9'
'10'
'11'
'12'

'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

textjustification [int]

Text Justification

Possible values:

0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'

varname [symbol]

Sets the patcher's scripting name, which can be used to address the object by name in pattr, scripting messages to thispatcher, and the js object.

Messages

int

An int message will set a constant value for a single channel in the output multichannel signal.

float

A float message will set a constant value for a single channel in the output multichannel signal.

list

A list message will set constant values for multiple channels. For instance, a list of three items will set constant values for three consecutive output channels starting at the output channel corresponding to the inlet receiving the list.

mute

Arguments

on/off-flag [int]
The message mute 1 mutes all output channels, mute 0 unmutes all output channels.
