Hi all,

wow, thank you so much for your answers and sorry for my late reply- been off the internet for a couple of days.

I'm very happy I've found this mailing list, as I'm excited like a little kid to be able to use PD's power for a game score, but also have lots of questions marks still flying around in my head :)

The Rjdj lib is indeed a treasure chest...  I'm now collecting ideas as to what abstractions would be indispensable for the game composer: It would be great to create a sort of "package" with prebuilt mixers, synths, midi players etc. to help musicians get into writing game scores with PD more easily. Many colleagues I talk about the potential of using PD  for games are sort of scared about the "programming" part. However, I'm sure there are many things already built in PD, which with some modifications could lend themselves well for inclusion into a "Game Music 101 Bundle". Any thoughts on this?

As to connecting Unity- Puredata: We'll be releasing the early version of the Unity-PD-libpd bridge on github soon- I'll let you know as soon as it's out. We've achieved sending messages from Unity to PD, but as I've heard not yet the other way around.

Cheers from Munich and thanks again,
