Hi Jamie,

This has been sitting in my inbox for ages, sorry I never replied to it.
My s-abstractions collection is just such a set of abstractions that you
describe, with no external dependencies. Much of it was made by stealing
Miller's help patches and turning them into nice little guis, and lots
of other people's work too. I'm trying to bulk it up a bit at the moment
with the great plate reverb that Anton Hornquist posted here a while
back, and then I'm going to try and make a good, intuitive compressor
after that. If you do a pitch shifter or harmonizer, please let me know
so I can steal them for my collection, with your consent obviously! :)


After I get back to London next week I'm going to try and tidy the
collection up a bit and get the latest version into pd-extended. I think
the version that is in there at the moment is pretty outdated.
