In the EaganMatrix, patch sources are on the left of the matrix, and patch destinations are above the matrix. To make a connection, a value or formula is inserted in the intersection point of the source and the destination.

Connection points can use a wide variety of constants, predefined formulas, or user-defined formulas. Usage of user-defined formulas can be monitored in the Formula thumbnail area of the EaganMatrix, pictured to the left on this page.
In the picture below, the highlighted patch point shows a constant of 1 patched from Oscillator 2 source to LowPass filter 1 input, allowing the audio from the Oscillator to go directly into the filter without influence from the playing surface.

The connection highlighted below shows a predefined Formula, Z, being used to control the audio output of Filter 1 into the right input of the Master section. Formula Z is a predefined mapping of the Continuum surface, only using the pressure (Z) value from finger placement. Used this way the finger acts as a volume control for the filter level.
