A little background...
I've been playing with sound/music creation under linux for a few years now using various JACK based tools. My bread and butter have been the specimen sampler, the hydrogen drum machine, ALSA modular synth, and sooperlooper.
I've messed around with csound a bit and become frustrated.
Anyway, I have a good understanding of digital audio and sound in general (I'm an electrical engineering undergrad). I'm a total puredata newbie though, and looking to get started.
I have puredata installed, but don't really know how to take the plunge. Are there examples that come with the ubuntu package? Any recommended online tutorials?
