Yes, this works great with Pd and Live. You can also send midi from Live to Pd.

However, my experiences with using sending audio between Pd and Live
in tandem using Jack on OS X 10.4 (PPC) show that Pd runs a lot slower
than Live. I suppose the best strategy would be to run Pd with -nogui
and then have all the parameters modulated with Live's (more stable
and efficient) GUI.

I did find a nice little PDF that explains hooking the two up through
Jack, if others are interested.

Any thoughts on how to overcome the CPU overload, or minimize the
headache of these two apps have a conversation?
