The mc.makelist~ object creates a list of values whose size is determined by the highest voice number it receives in its right inlet or specified by the value of its voices attribute.
The mc.makelist outputs its list in response to incoming values.
'passive' ( passive mode )
Lists are output only when any message is received at the left inlet. The mode is useful when you want to decouple list output from incoming values.
'pak' ( passive mode )
Any value arriving at the middle inlet will trigger an output (default value of the mode attribute).
'buddy' ( buddy mode )
The mode (named for the buddy object) outputs a list when at least one value for each list position has been received since the last output. In order to work properly in mode, mc.makelist needs an initial value for its voices attribute so it knows how many voices to keep track of.
'auto' ( auto mode )
The mode outputs a list immediately after a voice number received in the right inlet repeats for the first time after the last list output. This mode is useful when the list size might change over time.
'hitrig' ( hitrig mode )
The mode outputs a list immediately after a value for the highest voice number (as determined by the value of voices attribute) is received.
The voices attribute sets the maximum voice number mc.makelist will monitor as well as the size of its output list. If you set a voice number number higher than this value, value inputs in the middle inlet will be ignored.
Common Box Attributes
Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.
background [int] (default: 0)
Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer.adds the object to the background layer, removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.
color [4 floats]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
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]
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]
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]
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.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
Sets the justification for the object's text.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
