Hey Hans,

I hope you got your bike built in California :)

Laura reckoned my album was commercial. She's right, and I'd like to do more arty projects as well as my Kraftwerk-loving techno-life :-D www.pyramidtransmissions.com (lone shark)

But I have other plans afoot, namely synthcore~. It would be really great if we could organize an API for pd instruments, kind of like the VST api in terms of input-output topology but made of patches in PD. I'd love to know your thoughts on the issue since I intend to code it. It needs to be flexible enough to contain a variety of different parameter lists and modes, but also conform to a specified system so that polyphony and multichannel output can be handled by an external object (such as nqpoly4, but I think we should write our own object for this one)  ;-)

I think a [message value  isitcontinuous(  model is good, and a [event $1( message could be a note, or a continuous controller change. Mapping the  parameters could be organized so that there is a set parameter list (e.g. amplitude envelope) and then a synth-definable list (e.g. osc modulation of the filter - in cents). also, an external patching system using an SQL database (mogo - I want your sqlite object for linux) based around the metastudio patching system, but a bit more standardised - i.e. you can load patches for one synth, and any parameter lists that match with the present synth's parameter list should be implemented (e.g. filter envelope and paramters, amplitude envelope, global modulation index etc.)

Anyone want to work with me on this? It needs to be done!
