Hi fellow Pd-ers!
firstly thanks to all who contribute to this list and make it
such a good read and a fantastic source of tips and ideas,
I have definitely learned a huge amount from reading this list!
I have recently been making what was intended to be an
Internet-based installation/shared composition. The idea
was to use a java applet written in Processing as the front-end
with a realtime Pd synthesis engine running in the browser with
the Pd browser Plugin.
At the moment I am having a lot of problems with the plugin -it
refuses to read any external files, eg samples, txt files, abstractions etc-
so I have made a semi-standalone version which definitely works on MacOSX
and also for Linux and Windows platforms (exported directly from Processing)
with the synthesis engine as a normal Pd patch. The only dependency is OSC.
I thought I'd share it with you to see what you think of the sound,
atmosphere of the project. Also if you had any suggestions or found
bugs I would
be very pleased to hear about it. (please ignore the current
it really is not working at all)
If you would like to check out the semi-standalone version, it can be
as a .zip file.
thanks for reading,
hope you are all making cool digital sounds :D
(ps. if the audio starts to become distorted because of CPU on startup,
body.txt and bodypd.txt, as they control how many instances of grains
