Do you mean channels of the soundcard? In that case, try:

[dac~ 1 2] [dac~ 3 4] [dac~ 5 6] etc etc

However, this doesn't sound like what you are asking. If you mean 
different channels internally, then check out:

[send~ "name"] / [receive~ "name"]
[throw~ "name"] / [catch~ "name"]


and other such objects. For dynamic connections, you might also use 
local or global variables such as $0 or $1 in connection with 
send/receive or throw/catch pairs. See:


I hope this answers your questions. If not, perhaps you could state the 
problem more clearly?
