Issue Attaching Audio Interface
Issue with Attaching Audio Interface to PureData
So I am having issues with attaching my Audio Interface (Fasttrack) to PureData. When I process the adc~ signal it goes through my dynamic microphone to my computer no problem. Even with Logic Pro X the microphone processes through. However, when I plug it into Pure Data, I change the settings to (Fasttrack USB) and (Input 2) and the signal does not process through Puredata.
My connection set up is:
- USBC-> Shark USB Hub
- Shark USB Hub -> Fasttrack Audio Interface
- Fasttrack-> Dynamic Microphone
So I have an:
- OS Sierra
- Macbook Pro
- Fasttrack USB Audio Interface
- Shark USB Mic and Headphones attached to a USC-C Converter
- Dynamic Microphone (XLR->Quarter-inch)
Sound problems of Patches that moved from Windows 10 to Raspbian
I've been making guitar effects with Puredata and Raspberry Pi.
Previously I did not care much about this problem, but at the last moment I got a terrible problem so I would like to consult with you.
I created Puredata Patches on Windows 10, copy Patches to Raspbian and use it.
In most cases there is no problem,
but depending on the Patches the sound reproducibility will be different.
Please help if there is a solution,thank you.
*I uploaded same files in Google Drive and Dropbox.
1)There is a problem with the reproducibility of the sound, especially the problem is remarkable with the decay sound.
2)The problem is reproduced even if Windows 10 and Raspbian use the same USB Audio interface(Behringer UCG102)
3)Even if I use a different USB Audio interface (Zoom U - 22) in Raspbian, the problem is reproduced.
MobMuPlat: can't save my files anymore
i have a big problem here and maybe someone knows how to fix it or can give me a tip:
i’m using the mobmuplat-editor and the app itself since a while now and up until yesterday everything worked quite well.
i’m designing an interface for a simple app on ipad. so, i’m using the mobmuplat-editor on my macbook in connection with pure data (works fine) and transfer the files to the
mobmuplat document folder on ipad to run them via the mobmuplat app (also works fine).
my problem: suddenly the mobmuplat-editor on my laptop does not save my .mmp files anymore. i can open a file but as soon as i add new elements (especially „label-objects“ for text) and try to save, the editor „freezes“ - it won’t save the changes i made and after 1-2 minutes i have to force-quit the program and the changes are lost.
it’s really strange because the patch itself is not very large or complicated, just some buttons/toggles in different colours, some sliders, some labels (the ones i already have are working fine).
i already tried to change the file directories, i tried to delete/reinstall the whole mobmuplat package, restarted the computer, even tried it on another macbook - but always the same problem.. as soon as i add label-objects and try to save afterwards, it loads and loads and then i have to force-quit the program. even if i make a complete new file and add some buttons or other objects.. when i add a label-object, i can’t save anymore..
does anyone know, what’s the problem? any suggestions what i can try? i’m really thankful for all
Font issue with new linux distros
@whale-av In that first passage I quoted, the Pd list member is saying he's getting the exact same problem in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS -- not sid, not a test or development release.
As far as that other 16.04 graphical rendering problem you linked to -- no, that problem is not "very similar". There's no problem with graphical renderings -- this is only related to the display of the default object box font.
If you really think pursuing this is "a lot of work for no gain" you might want to tell the list developers that -- in that thread they seem to have determined it's a real issue worthy of their attention.
Font issue with new linux distros
@NoDSP It all works fine on Windows. OSX I have not heard of problems since Pd addressed them in 2011. Ubuntu, some problems after 16.04 (and sometimes before... but X-window). Generally a lot of Linux font problems on Google.
Sorry I am not helping with your particular problem.
You could try a.... sudo apt-get install --reinstall x-ttcidfont-conf ttf-dejavu....... if not done so already.
I am having trouble understanding why it should be a tcl issue when it works fine on other Linux distros.
Tk 8.4 was a problem..... but it's very old now......
But Pd will need a re-write (again) just for newer Linux. I don't know what other problems that will throw up for system compatibility. There was a long debate about it last time.
Vanilla now 0.48 available for testing
@Alexandros my system is win10 and I originally just installed 0.48 assuming it would overwrite 0.47.1 but it didn't, It installed along side it in \bin\bin, which I thought may have been the problem.
I have been having some administrator rights problems with Purr Data installs and had the same problems with the Pd vanilla folders not being deleted during uninstallation and not allowing me to delete them or pd.exe and uninstall.exe until I rebooted to a safemode command prompt. However I think just a reboot would have solved that because there were no files in the directory in safemode this time.
So I then reinstalled 0.48 but had the same objects problem and decided to go back to just 0.47.1 for vanilla for the moment
I have Pd-extended, Purr Data and Pd 0.47.1 installed at the moment
I'll see what's require to post this on the Pd Mailing List
Streaming audio file player? Timeline editor? Syncing multiple tracks?
@johnwbyrd I have never looked at the source code, but I run a live performance with Pd....... 30 input channels, 8 out..... with live mixing and using [readsf~] for up to 15 minute backing tracks, and I have never had Pd hang even momentarily.
I use extended for that although I doubt the [readsf~] implementation is different.
However, I use windows7....... and is it possible that Pd and the OS treat disk access slightly differently on other systems? I doubt that.
[readsf~] requires an "open" and a "start"...... so it is not forward looking as it might be in an audio editor. However if you program the "open" in advance.... or even at load, then the start is instantaneous (in ram) and you can emulate an instant player.
If Pd is stumbling during playback..... look elsewhere for the problem....... not in [readsf~]......
A multi-GHz processor with rapid disc access should not have problems with audio or Pd...... they use a paltry fraction of the resources available.
Yes..... Pd prioritises audio..... like all programs that use audio.... over video, screen drawing...... everything. So if your patch is struggling in any way you could see the Pd gui stumble.
Check thoroughly your audio and latency settings.... any mismatch with the capabilities of the soundcard could cause what you are seeing.
More here about setting up your computer for audio......... https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/10125/audio-and-video-why-do-i-have-problems ..... with a link to a good read for problem solving!
You often just need to tell your OS to do as instructed......"and I mean it!"........... Otherwise it prefers to go and peruse it's Facebook page for likes!
Maybe, otherwise, use FL studio or something similar.
Programs written specifically for audio application will have been written in assembly language and be more appropriate for your purposes.
Communication with Pd is usually facilitated through at least midi or OSC messaging.
No audio coming out of pd when playing score
So, Hello! my score in iannix finally worked with pd extended, but I cant record it because there are interruptions (the audio freezes then starts again and so on), and i dont know if its because of my processor or sound card or whatever, so im trying vanilla latest version to see if i can record it with that, knowing that it is 64 bit, now, i had problems with vanilla because there were a lot of things that it couldnt create, so i saw a post with some similar problems and i got some objects to work. Now the osc messages are coming through iannix score to pd vanilla, but no audio is coming through, i already tested the audio in "media test audio and midi" and it worked but not when i press play on my score, and on the console i get these messages: mrpeach cant load library, initbang couldnt create and pvu~ couldnt create...
Im attaching the iannix score and the pd patch and a photo, what do i need to do to make these problems go away and make the audio come through?
Some questions regarding a loop station
I changed my first post and uploaded a zip at the end.
Works with Purr Data or pd (plus zexy)
Thanks for your patch. I tested it with extended, but I get latency issues. When I record saying something like "tik" on the beat, the "tik" is heavily delayed to the metronom on playback. But on pd extended I can't set the latency lower than 24 msecs. So there might be some issues with extendend on my machine. (pd or Purr Data let me set the latency to 5 msecs without problems.)
You wrote: The biggest problem with (not noticing) an edit will be a difference of volume (power). Our ears are very sensitive to that.
The second biggest problem will be the quality.... timbre..... but as you say a crossfade could help. But the bigger the difference the longer the crossfade needs to be.
I thought about starting recording a little bit earlier and stop somewhat later, so I can crossfade between these extra samples. And maybe it's easier than I thought.
Thanks. How can I trigger between blocks? I thought messages are only send once during a block, aren't they?
About 3): I was wondering, if it is a problem, not to be able to set the exact metronom tempo
And here's a little screenshot to see what it looks like:
I would say, anything above 5 ms latency between the metronom and some voices starts to feel strange. And when you start to change your reference - say you start recording with the metronom, change to first recorded line as a reference, than to the second etc, - the latency will sum up and increase.
I wonder how latency is treated on hardware loop stations.
And I'm still asking myself how latency should be treated to get it right.
HELP!!!! Puredata and Arduino problem! -Solved-
Sorry for the late reply.
Your object works like a charm!
Thanks a lot! you really saved my life!
I'm just having some problems with the Arduino and the Encoders, instead of incrementing or decrementing the value, it output just numbers (sometimes 0-1 some other time 3-4 and all in between). it's strange then with both pins attached it output 0 with one attached it output 1 and with the other attached it output -1, in different ranges but keeping this proportion.
As soon I will fix that I will post all the results!
