I had to solve a similar problem in a few patches with my bcr2000, so I
wrote a few small "helper" abstractions. I wanted to be able to move
the controller and have it update a UI element in pd, and vice versa --
and I needed them to be in sync all the time. You can get these two
They basically encapsulate the logic around spigot as Luigi suggested.
Input the signal from a UI element (slider/ui/etc) into the top and feed
back the control output back to the UI element. They're simple, so you
should hopefully be able to extend them easily. They're a little stupid
in that they assume a control range with 0 at the low end...but they
helped clean up some patches and keep things in sync.
