Dear all,

I'm happy to announce the public release of the Locusonus external.

The locusonus external feature a solo object: locuscast~, a streaming client, similar in use to the oggamp~ or mp3amp~ objects.

It is based on FFMPEG (and pack it, that why it's a bit big).

It can read a wide variety of format (ogg, mp3, aac, wav, and many more), any bitrate, any samplerate, and up to 64 channels.

And files can be read too.

At the moment it's available for macOS and Raspberry Pi (arm6 and arm7), and in a close future it will be for linux and windows as well.

The external is here:


A demo patch is provided, but intended to work on L2ork, with the purestJson external.

So far, it has been tested on :

Raspbian Jessie (arm6&7) with Pd vanilla and L2ork

Raspbian Stretch with Pd vanilla.

MacOs 10.6.9 and later

You can report bug, observation or happyness about it ay this email adress:

Locusamp is made in Aix en Provence at the Locus Sonus research lab by Grégoire Lauvin and Stéphane Cousot.
