Centralizes communication with all pattr objects in a patcher.
The pattrhub object has a single inlet and two outlets. The inlet is used for all incoming messages. Messages that can be understood by a pattr object within the pattrhub object's patcher (e.g. or messages) will be automatically forwarded to that object, and any response will be sent from the pattrhub object's right outlet.
The word pattrhub object. The default is the special symbol , which represents the patcher the pattrhub object resides within. The pattrhub object can refer to patchers other than the one in which the object resides. A double-colon syntax ('::') is used to separate levels of patcher hierarchy. See the pattrhub help file for further information on this feature., followed by a symbol describing a valid path to a patcher, sets the patcher referenced by the
