I recently came across Syphon, software for routing video between programs in a way similar to soundflower and audio. It has a plugin for PD and a video recorder. I haven't used it a ton, but seems promising for logging video from GEM.
Best of luck!
Has anyone used the Tascam US-1641 audio interface with PD?
I have one and there are always audio glitches (audio cuts out for a second every 10 seconds or so) when I'm using it with PD, but not with any other audio program on my computer.
Maybe it is something with the firmware that doesn't gel with PD? I've tried increasing the latency with no results.
its a 16 channel audio interface with 4 outputs, and I'd like to do live ensemble processing and 4 channel surround with it and PD, but can't because of these glitches.
I have been working on this dynamic looping patch and it all seems to be working well except for one thing. I am dynamically creating abstractions to build infinite layers of looped material, but when each abstraction is created I need to go into that abstraction and disconnect one of the signal connections (any connection) and then reconnect it for the whole patch to work.
Why would this happen?
I have attached the patch with instructions and everything. Any theories/help/insight would be greatly appreciated.
I've been having some bad audio lag problems when trying to use pduino analog inputs. the audio is all choppy, like there will be a 1/2 second of silence every second or so. i am using an Arduino Deuemilanove and right now just have one pot hooked up with a resistor in series to the board. i have hooked all the inputs that i am not using to the ground so that their values stay at 0, but it has not changed anything.
also, i am trying to build a nice foot interface with this. planning on putting the arduino circuit in an old whammy pedal to make an expression pedal and i am going to make some stomp buttons too, so if anyone has any suggestions or advice, throw that in there too!
thanks a ton!
I've been having problems for a while with almost all of the external libraries not loading in Pd-extended. I have tried a couple of times to fix it but have not had success. I've read a couple of the other threads on this topic and i think maybe it is a problem with the org.puredata.pd.default.plist but i dont really know what is wrong.
here is what is in that file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<string>-helppath ~/Library/Pd -helppath /Library/Pd</string>
i have the path and startup settings set to the pd/contents/resources/exta folder. i tried copying all the libraries to someplace else and tried putting that in the path too, but it didnt work.
this has been driving me crazy for a while and i really need to fix it now!!! someone help pllleeeeaaaasseeee!!!!!!!
i make a lot of experimental/drone music with PD and i will send you a CD if you can help me! thanks.
I am building a transposing sampler based on the one in the help files and i am having trouble eliminating the doppler effect when i resize the chunksize. i am using two overlapping samples trying to eliminate popping (which doesnt really work very well) and i have followed what others have done to eliminate the doppler but it seems to be only working for one of the samples. i have attached the patch to look at.
For a while I have had a problem loading the libraries that come with PD extended and have not been able to fix it. I have made sure that the paths are correct and I have deleted PD and downloaded and installed it several times, but nothing seems to work.
There is a big list of errors when I start PD telling me the files that it has tried to load and failed, here is a bit of it:
tried ./cyclone.d_ppc and failed
tried /Library/Pd/cyclone.d_ppc and failed
tried /System/Library/Fonts/cyclone.d_ppc and failed
tried /Library/Fonts/cyclone.d_ppc and failed

tried /Users/andrewbernstein/Library/Pd/cyclone.d_ppc and failed
tried /Library/Pd/cyclone.d_ppc and failed
tried /Applications/Pd-extended.app/Contents/Resources/extra/cyclone.d_ppc and failed
it goes on like that for a while looking for all of the libraries but most of them fail. It finds GEM after a while, but nothing else, even though they are all in the same place.
Hello PD community,
I am trying to measure the frequency of an anemometer that gives as its values 1's and 0's as it spins. I am using a [select 1] object and an adding scheme to measure how many times the box reads 1 in a given amount of time before I a [metro] bangs 0 to the addition scheme and it starts counting from 0 again.
my problem is that when the number box goes from 0 to 1 it counts to like 8, instead of just 1. and if it is just sitting on 1 and the anemometer is not moving at all, it just keeps counting. maybe this is because there are slight variations in '1' ? i dont know.
I am using an Arduino circuit with PDuino to hook up the anemometer to PD.
any ideas? i have attached my patch to better show what i am talking about.
i am working on a project where the wind triggers samples and the speed at which he samples are looped is controlled by the wind.
right now i am reading the wind velocity just with a microphone and an [adc~] object and using [snapshot~] to get the numbers, which are multiplied and go the [metro] which opens and then plays, with [readsf~], the sample. the data from [snapshot~] also goes to the metro to control the speed.
my problem is this: as the speed constantly changes i think the [metro] re-triggers the sample and it sounds all choppy, and i want the sample to play all the way through before the speed is adjusted.
thanks in advance!
newest version here if anyone wants to test it out.
It is now working more or less fine, except that after recording 2 or 3 loops there is major latency to the point of making the patch unusable. Is the patch really just that taxing? Do I just need to get some more ram? I have 1GB on a Macbook running OSX 10.5.8.
bah! i have found a new glitch (thankfully unrelated to the first one, i think).
The full sampled input does not seeming to be written to the array if the sample is more than 10 seconds long. If the input is more than 10 seconds, it will play in full the first repeat (which is played by the delay line and then written to the array) and then only play about 10 seconds and cut off for every subsequent repeat (played from the array via [tabplay~])
also, Maelstrom, dsp objects other than [hilbert~] don't seem to work in initiating the audio, but thats not that big of a deal to me, as long as it works somehow.
I have attached the newest versions of the patch. any thoughts?
i updated to PD-extended 42.5 and opened the patch, and it seemed to work fine for a minute, and then the same problem started happening again for no apparent reason.
I tried having a [switch~] turned on as part of each patch ([loadbang]s don't seem to be working in the subpatches that are created, so I made it so when you click the "start recording" button it turns on [switch]) but that doesn't seem to make any difference.
Is there any other reason this would happen? maybe something in the structure of the patch I have overlooked?
I don't think I ever deleted the .plist file in ~/Library/Preferences but it is not there and it doesn't show up on a search of my hard drive. But if I was only looking for it to delete it, and it turns out it's not there anyway, I guess that doesn't change much. Could it be something that is wrong in .plist file in the /Contents/Resources? Thanks a ton for your help!
