Not really. As lorenzo said, PD has strict rules regarding inlets and order
or execution. The [* ] only stores the value of the right inlet. Any value
sent to the left inlet will not be stored, it will simply be multiplied by
the stored value. So when you change the DeTuner value, it will simply be
multiplied by itself. There are other ways to accomplish what you want, but
I think the simplest is probably to use two [* ] objects. See attached.
