MC and Gen

Using MC with Gen

Gen patching within MC is primarily based on the mc.gen~ and mcs.gen~ objects.

mc.gen~ uses the @chans attribute to create multiple "voices" that are individual instances of the Gen DSP patches hosted by the object. It is a wrapped object, so it can use the functions available to any wrapped object in MC.

mcs.gen~, like other mcs.* object, allows the direct use of multichannel inputs and outputs for gen~ operations.

MC also introduces mc.gen, a variant of the event-based gen object. In addition to assigning a channel count to the object, it provides an additional outlet that informs Max of the voice number that generates any outgoing message.
