I am on to my next wish. To be able to send messages to other devices via my patch on my computer. I see the netsend and netreceive. Is that the way to do it? If so, I assume I need Pd on all other devices? Then I need to have them all on the same network?
Is there another way? I was thinking you might be able to use shell and make a script, but shell often seems to add digital artifacts when a sound is playing. Is there another way?
Essentially, I want to:
1: Inform performers when to change what they are doing.
2: Provide the performers an opportunity to tell the system simple directions.
However, all sound will be generated from the patch and this is without a performer manning the computer.
I hope this makes sense. Help.
