[PD]add several signals

I asked a similar question earlier, you could search the list for a more 
detailed (and perhaps correct) account, but... from what I understand, 
the dac~ sums the inputs to each channel just like [+~] does. So it 
doesn't need to be done manually, indeed, there's is no functional 
difference between the two methods.

Multiple [dac~]s can be used. If this does cause a performance hit, I 
think it is negligble on modern computers. *BUT* my personal opinion 
(and I think it is shared by many people that promote clean, modular, 
reusable code) is that using multiple [dac~]s is bad design practice. 
LMK if you want more clarification on that, but otherwise I'll spare you 
(and the list) my little design theory speech.
