New features have been added to Gen to support MC as well as to make integration of Gen easier with the remainder of your Max patching. The changes include:
The addition of new Gen objects
Several new objects were created to extend the functionality of Gen. These include mcs.gen~, mc.gen~, mc.gen, and gen. These additions are covered in more detail in the Using MC with Gen and Event-handling with MC guides.

Using the genattribute for event-based
By default, the gen event-based Gen patcher will use its first inlet as a "hot" inlet triggering Gen processing and output. By using the attribute, you can set any other inlet to be "hot" as well.
