yeah, thought so ...

yes, that's probably a way better way to go. unfortunately you have to 
dig there yourself, as i have no experience in that. but it's definitely

if you want to stay on the message side, yes examine them (iemmatrix 
objects). they're quite powerful.
since you seem to be experienced with MAX a little bit, GEM objects work 
similar to JITTER objects, the [pix_buffer] objects can read write 
matrix data like [jit.matrix], so that's possibly another way to go. 
just install GEM with deken and have a try at it. (i think you don't 
even have to turn GEM rendering on for that)
