Sorry for the ambiguity. The Pd version does have all the descriptor and decomposition stuff… we just had to limit to SC and Max for the first generation of alpha testing and development of interface for the machine learning and dataset stuff, both relying on key-value associations (Max and SC both support dictionary type natively).

To be a little more specific: all our framework is based on the same clients, and each environment (Max SC Pd) has a wrapper for our client code. So our autumn challenge is to bring the Pd wrapper to par with all the new dataset stuff. It will happen, we very much like the diversity and angle and vibe of the Pd community, but it needs careful consideration to be as idiomatic as possible to its environment.

Thank you for your patience and in the meantime there is still a lot of fun to be had with the other algorithms.

To make a long story short, we have various machine listening and learning tools to help tackle programmatically sound bank mining in Max and SuperCollider (and Pd in progress) on MacOS, Windows and Linux with all the code open source...

You can follow the saga [here](https://discourse.flucoma.org/t/video-presentation-by-the-artists-second-set-of-commissions/885) and I'll post one per week, which leads us to the gigs. This week, Hans Tutschku explains his approach to polyphonic piano processing, informed by 30 years of practice.
