not sure if this helps and not sure what you guys are talking about but
once I figured out how to use the same control for different objects I
found that that did not work, the switching of the control to update a
different object works great but since my synth used the controls as a
storage object for the actual initialization as in a model view controller
type thing, i found that when a control was switched to say point to
envelope2 that envelope2 was not initialized so I have been back at the
drawing board.
