Looks really promising. Unfortunately, once I install it in my Droid Razr and open it, it does not find any compatible patches. I uncompressed them all in the same /sdcard/pd directory where I placed the tgz package. I wonder whether I should place them somewhere else, still couldn't find where is it really installed, and no way to open a patch manually...
Running your patches on Android usind PdDroidParty in 10 Steps
I'm trying to install PdDroidParty on my Samsung Galaxy 3 with Android 2.1, but get a parse error when I launch the .apk. Any clues / hints?
I had downloaded "What Comes Around" and it seemed to work (although very very slowly, probably due to my device's age and speed).
In any case, this looks great!
I didn't seem to see any mention of reading the accelerometers into PdDroidParty objects... any plans for that?
Well, a simple firmware update fixed it. Now to play with that DroidParty!
Maybe I'm just a noob (probably), but the patches do not seem to load from my sd card. I have successfully installed the pddroidparty app. I went back to the sd card folder and made a new folder and uploaded the .pd files. On the app itself I get a green "compatible patches found", but the rest is black and no apps seem to be apparent. Could someone please help.
the main patch of your app should be place in a folder with the name of you app, and be called 'droidparty_main.pd'
so you should avec something like this if you app is called 'sequencer' :
then in the list you should see an entry called 'sequencer'
alternatively you can check this doc i wrote some time ago :
I should probably separate rjdj and droidparty now that rjdj is no more...
the entry that worked for me:
sdcard/pd/sequencer/droidparty_main.pd did not work for me. Probably has to do with the name of the app? Thanks for your fast reply though
ah yes you are right !
it has changed in latest versions now the root directory of all you patches should be
glad you figured it out, have fun
Hello, is there a form of sending MIDI messages via USB, in PdDroidParty?
finally I managed to install it on a LG phone running android 4.1.2 but whenever i try to launch a patch it suddenly crashes.. anyone experienced this?
I got a nexus 5 now which is a LG phone, and it works fine :
what version of Droidparty are you using ? (the last one is 264 -pretty recent)
what patches are you launching ? did you try the tests and demos available at http://droidparty.net/ ?
i can' t understand some steps :
-Place your patch and files with a droidparty_main.pd in the "patch" subfolder
which droidparty_main_pd ? Have i to rename my patch as "droidparty_main.pd" or have i to put my patch and files in the same folder with droidparty_main.pd ?
which "patch" and wich subfolder ? Where ?
-Pack the patch subfolder into an Android zip resource: `./pack-patch`
What does `./pack-patch` mean ? Is this a folder path ?
I have dowloaded RAR for Android and i can make a .rar file but i don't know where to put it.
-Follow the instructions in the README.txt file for building.
Where is the README.txt file ?
Thanks a lot and best regards.
- create a folder called 'patch' and put your patch (which has to be named as "droidparty_main.pd') into it
- './pack-patch' is a bash script, if you wanna see what it does open it with a text editor and try to read it.
- if you cannot run './pack-patch', .zip your patch folder and put it into res/raw directory
- README.txt resides in the main folder called MySynthesizer
I am stuck at the starting gate. When I run PdDroidParty on my Samsung tablet it finds no compatible apps. So all I have is a black screen with a message at the top. There seems to be no way to put in a search path.
I have a folder on my internal SD card named pdDroidParty. In it are the three folders created by the demo, test, and abstractions archives. I would assume that at least these would be found!
Thanks for any help.

Is it possible to manually edit data structures in droid party?
I think it's not possible.
Data structure are not supported in the sense that there is no class to display them as gui elements on the android side.
Dan Wilcox at pd-party (ios version) as listed this as a possible future feature. It's probably something that would be interesting but may require a consequent amount of work.
What would you like to do that isn't possible to do yet ?
I'm interested in being able to manipulate graphics on touchscreen devices as a control interface for a patch
Looks interesting. I'll check this out. thanks
