Great, kind of what I was expecting, but I still needed an example to see
how to make this happen :)

I also thought about that and I'm really excited to test both things.
Hopefully I can have an example of this in my tutorial rght now and release

Have you already messed with it, Christof?

I opened an issue for that (
https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/issues/1125 ) and can take care of
it as I'm usually handling documentation issues.

that's used n the help file of [samplerate~] but I agree it should also be
included in this new documentaton section. Anyway, what else would you use
it for?
