After using Purr Data for a couple of days now, I really appreciate it!
E.g. I don't want to miss scaling the surface anymore.
But I still have some questions:
- Is it possible to use pyext in a reliable manner?
I'm not familiar with pyext. Is it currently maintained and stable in Vanilla?
- What about [pd~]? I really need that. Will it work in future?
[pd~] should work fine in Purr Data.
Hi @jancsika, thanks for the reply. Will GEM work on OSX soon?
Someone was able to get it up and running, but if I remember correctly it requires some extra compilation steps beyond the Homebrew instructions I have listed at git.purrdata.net.
If someone is able to get Gem to build without any extra steps (besides installing a few Homebrew dependencies) I'll happily merge the code.
@jancsika I'm interested in moving over from Pd-extende to Purr Data. There are two things that would deter me at the moment though:
- Can I use the same externals that I am using in Pd-extended? Would I have to recompile them to get them to work or would it simply be a case of copying across the relevant .pd_darwin files?
It comes with most of the externals that Pd-extended had. The main exception are some GUI objects which I haven't ported yet.
- Is GEM working in Purr Data? This is one of the main things I am using Pd for at present. So I would not like to move across unless GEM is usable.
GEM currently only works with Purr Data on Windows and Gnu/Linux.
@xgr Got a trivially reproducible bug using only two objects now:
I think it has something to do with the GUI update queue ordering...
first of all: Thanks for your great effort! Purr Data's handling is very nice.
I played around with it today and tested some of my patches. Purr Data crashed every once in a while. I can't say, where exactly it happens. Is there a log file? I would send it to you.
What OS? 32-bit or 64-bit? Is it the most recent version?
Also-- do you know which externals you were using? Lyonpotpourri happens to have a crasher that we're in the middle of fixing.
And is there a feature list? Would be nice to see what exactly is shipped with Purr Data and where it has extra features. Also which parts of Pd-l2ork are integrated.
Most features from Pd-l2ork are available-- the exceptions are disis_munger~ and k12 mode.
- $0 inside message boxes works
- infinite undo, preset_hub/node, iemgui anchors, and other Pd-l2ork features
- GUI presets (in the preferences dialog)
- zoomable canvases and Pd console, ability to save zoom level per patch if you wish (see preferences dialog for checkbox)
- new data structure visualization features-- click
<ctrl-b>for Help browser, then scroll down to the second heading about data structures
- dollarsigns work correctly in iemguis
- introspection objects:
- experimental "dropdown" atom box (name/interface may change)
- multi-connection patching shortcuts (see doc/2.control.examples/25.intelligent-patching.pd)
- realtime find
<ctrl-f>in Pd console, and step-find
<ctrl-f>in patch windows
There are probably others. Those are just the ones I could think of atm.
@jancsika Hello again,
I've been a fan of fluidsynth for a long time and really enjoy [fluid~], thank you!
I have noticed the generators 15 chorus send and 16 reverb send have no effect. Is there a message to enable them?
I don't know what those are. Can you point me to the relevant documentation?
