Replicate node masking with combiner

Is there an easy way to replicate the masking of a generator node, but instead with a combiner or something else? I’ve tried replicating with a combiner, but I can’t quite get the output to match what I got from masking the generator node. The reason is, I need the output of the generator node without the mask for something else.

Or maybe is there a way to duplicate the output of a node? I don’t mean copy+paste, I mean a node that will duplicate the output of a parent node/be driven by the parent nodes parameters.

Hi there,

In general, you should get exactly the same output as masking the generator by instead taking the (unmasked) output and the mask into a combiner set to Multiply - 100% :

Awesome, thank you very much!
