apart from creating media art which not seems interesting for you, I
recently start to use PD as a modular effectbox. Having a meanwhile old
laptop with an USB audiobox with no task I integrated it in my studio
the oldschool analog way like you would integrate other synths and
effects. I started to develop several basic blocks for processing which
can be easily connected, the biggest task was to store settings AT LEAST
one per patch. I did an abstraction but maybe another approach is more
common, maybe someone an idea?
I ever wanted to have an Eventide box but now I got something simular
and when you look at their editors its actually the same thing. I got
real big fun with pitchshifters connected to lfos, another delays and
feedbacks. I plan to put the modules online because I believe its a good
way to reuse your old computers.
You can even create something like a Roland V-Synth when you look on the
FFT tutorials and combine it with filters and resonators.
In an artist-in-residency I implemented some synthesis technics, maybe
you look at
it shouldnt be so difficult to implement midi. Currently these patches
where used on old pcs connected over ethernet. Every instrument is
controlled by a stepsequencer, synced by a masterclock broadcasted over
media art + development
