Hi all,

after few months of "spare time" development, I'd like to 
share with you my first project in PD, which I 
called "OuterSpace".

OuterSpace (OS) is an ambient sound instrument for PD 
capable of generating "natural" sounds like water, wind, 
fire, chimes and other unusual sounds. It is based on 
white noise filtered by a bank of 128 (!) bp~ filters, 
spread across the audio spectrum. 
The output of each voice (filter) is mixed and 
reverberated. OuterSpace comes with a GUI made in GriPd 
and a plain PD gui. OS has save, load, randomize preset 
capabilities. The idea is very similar to SpaceDrone 
Reaktor instrument, if you know it.

I'd be glad if you'd like to try it, any feedback is -> 
very <- welcome, so I can move it to v1.0 :-). 
OS was developed and tested under Windows and Linux 
(except the GriPD GUI in Linux, which I'm not able to run 
yet!), but should (hopefully) work on Mac too. OS is GPL'd.

Download it at:


under the download section, together with the pdf and ps 
docs. An mp3 sample is also there.

All the best,

Alberto Zin
