Posted this on the PD forum.. but haven't heard anything yet so i
thought I'd try here as well.

Euclidean Rhythms

I am interested in implementing something like THIS:


in PD.

I understand the algorithm for generating the rhythms on paper, but
i'm not sure how in Pd to go about doing it.  I'd imagine that it
would involve some pretty heavy 'list surgery' and I'm not too sure
how to go about doing it.

This website:


gives a little more info on how the algorithm works (especially in the
PDF he links to, page 2 has the relevant example), and talks about
coding the thing in Lisp, but i can't figure it out in PD.

any hints?
