...yes, they all create the same kind of output...I'd suggest just 
plugging something into something else if your curious:  that's kinda 
how pd/gem are designed...it'll either work or not, and if not, 
hopefully spew out some message instead of crashing :-)

...yeh, everything is "on" by default, if I remember correctly...so you 
may want to send a [loadbang]->[0] to anything you want off to 
start...we have discussed this a while ago, and I think we just decided 
to leave it as is...

time to eat,
