try the attached patch.. note, you can put the [r~]-[dac~] block anywhere,
it doesn't have to be in the same patch.

[dac~] is for connecting to the soundcard - best practise is probably to
have only one [dac~] object in your whole patch of patches, because then
you can do nice things like have a master volume control.
[throw~] and [catch~] on the other hand are for routing signals.
imagine the [dac~] as your master mixing desk and P/A, and [throw~] and
[catch~] (and [r~] and [s~]) as audio signal cables connecting your various
bits of gear.
