try to give arguments for inlets and outlets, be precise, whether you 
want signal in/outs or message in/outs.
the syntax is
[dyn~ 1 2 3 4]
1) number of signal inlets
2) number of signal inlets
3) number of signal outlets
4) number of signal outlets
don't be scared of the syntax, basically you give every object a 
name/id, and that lets you delete the objects without knowing the order, 
in which you created them.
