"flext: C++ programming layer for cross-platform development of Max/ 
MSP and PD externals"

(in English)

For directions: http://www.ircam.fr/5.html


Flext seeks to represent a uniform programming interface for  
extending the most common modular real-time audio systems Max/MSP and  
Pure Data (PD) with external modules, or short externals. These  
modules provide a way to tailor such a system for one’s special needs  
and supply additional functionality. Source code based on Flext is  
able to exploit nearly all features of the respective real-time  
framework while staying completely independent of the actual host  
system and platform (hardware and operating system). flext currently  
supports PD for Linux, Windows and OSX as well as Max/MSP for OS9 and  
OSX and Windows, and other systems can follow in the near future.

In this seminar, we look at the current status, possibilities and  
limitations of Flext, a review of some famour objects developed using  
flext, as well as hearing your exotic wishes.
