Momentary and Latching Toggle Configuration

All of the Logic inputs in the HAL system, including those in the HAL hosts, the DR4, and the DR5, allow you to configure each input port as a toggle and to specify them as either Momentary or Latching. What does this mean? When you have configured a Logic In port as a toggle, Halogen creates a corresponding toggle control in the Control palette of the Processing Workspace. You can then link this toggle control to one or more other toggle controls, which allows an external physical switch, relay, or another similar device to control the state of the toggle. For example, if you link a Logic In toggle control to the mute toggle control of an audio output processing block, and then attach a physical two-position switch to the Logic In port, the end user can mute or unmute the audio of the output block by changing the switch position.
