Panel Container

The container is like a panel but it can contain several other interface-design modules or other containers.

It's useful if you want to group controls inside a single entity. Can be located at different places, in an other container or as stand alone window.

1 knob + waveform and physics-engine ON

You can only have one container per patch or sub-patch.

Example

Example in a patch with 3 faders, 3 knobs, a container module. We create a switch that we connect to the where inlet of the container and we rename it show knobs:

Then, we set the where parameters of faders to control panel and for knobs to container.
