Inlets (sig and control) and arguments aren't related in any
predefined way. Obviously you cannot pass signals itself as arguments,
only symbols and numbers are possible, so any conversion to signals
has to happen using some dsp object.

Is [sig~ $1] of any help? It will take the signal to generate from the
first argument. If that is missing, it would be the same as [sig~ 0].
The same of course is possible with any dsp-object that accepts
arguments, like [hip~ $1] etc.
