    Hi guys, here's my latest video work. It's a collaborative piece made with Jan Erik Syversen. Pd is involved in both the visuals and the audio work. Hope you'll like it!

    Thank you so much for bringing this up, I was stuck. Now I think my system will be up and running in no time. I believe the key file here is libraryname.d_fat **
    It is present in zexy, not in the others.

    Hi there, working on a piece of music the other day, I digged up an old abs. of mine that I thought was woth sharing with you guys. It's a sort of LFO on steroïds that doesn't do the usual basic waveforms (except for the sine wave) but has weirder, iconoclastic waveform capabilities. I use it as an inspiration/ experimentation tool when I'm looking for radical modulation shemes for my audio. It can be hooked-up to anything that accepts a control message ranging from 0 to 1 or 0 to 127. Good for creative filtering, fx, array indexing...)

    Several units can be sync'ed together using the sync output and the upper left input, so that everybody is on the same beat, there's also a possibility to save an array if you think it sounds cool...

    Enjoy!

    Hi there,

    I recently bought a meeblip anode monophonic hardware synth. After playing with it quite a bit, I thought it missed an arpegiator, then I came across an ad for the new Tangible Instrument Arpeggio, a dedicated hardware device that does just that and I said to myself that this was something that I'd like to port to pd. I thought it would just take me an hour or two... but things got way more complicated than planned: there's quite a bit of list processing and logical/relational operations involved... Well anyway, here it is:

    Here's the idea: you dial chords on your midi keyboard, and this abstraction turns them into arpeggios that get sent to you synth thru midi out. I browsed the web to get an idea of all the functions that are usually found in well designed arpeggiators and tried to implement them all, so here's what you get:

    • variable BPM and note duration
    • forward/backward/random order
    • pattern design
    • octave changer
    • BPM multiplier
    • the ability to monitor the result thru a little internal sine wave synth, so you can work "offline"

    There's inlets for all the parameters and an outlet that sends the "mtof" (midi to frequency) information for further processing inside pd.

    This little project was quite challenging and fun. It gave me the opportunity do work with lists in many different ways.

    Please try it, modify it, improve it, share it... and make great music!

    hI, I've used my own pd abstraction (a sequencer, a random sample player and an mp3 glitcher, mainly) The reverb is Nuendo's default rev. The kick drum comes from a Korg elecribe drum machine, midi triggered by pd. Thank you for listening! If you want to try out my glitching abstractions, they are on the site.

    Hi, here's a little video I made using my own glitching abstractions ( available in the "abstractions" section of the site). The result of a long pd journey inside glith. I'm excited tho share this with you!
