MC Object Wrapper

The MC Object Wrapper

When you type mc.cycle~ into an object box, one or more traditional MSP cycle~ objects are embedded inside something we call the MC Wrapper.

The wrapper holds multiple independent instances of MSP objects such as cycle~. It permits you to control all of the objects at once with one message or target individual objects. It also manages multichannel connections to other MC objects. For the most part, this is done transparently and you don't have to think about the wrapper too much. But wrapped objects share some useful messages and attributes not availble in the "unwrapped" versions.
