Why can't I connect two objects?

Up to Table of Contents

I get the message "error: can't connect signal outlet to control inlet" and I cannot connect two objects together!

The output of Audio Objects (those with a tilde ~ in their name) normally cannot be connected to Message Objects (those without a tilde ~ in their name).

So Pd will not allow these connections to be made. You might want to look at your patch and make sure that you are using the proper combination of objects.
