hi fredrik !

unfortunately i do not know an easy way to solve your problem
but since you are using only float-inlets (hope that i am right (?)) you
still have a chance

create your inlets/outlets like

for (i=0;i<arg;i++) {
   x->x_outlet[i] = outlet_new(&x->x_ob, &s_float);
   floatinlet_new(&x->x_obj, &(x->x_f[i]));

when you send a float to one of your (right) inlets, its value will be
written directly into memory (x->x_f[n]), to routine will be executed.
getting something on the first inlet will start your procedure and you
then can access all the floats that were set before.
this will do most of the times.

being no max-user i never heard of this
