Matrix
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 userdefined formulas. Usage of userdefined 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.
