Hey thanks, these first two paragraphs got me on track. Much appreciated.
Hi folks, it's been a few years since I last used Pd, and I'm having trouble getting it up and running on Ubuntu 14.04. Does anyone have a decent tutorial that includes audio (ex. Jack) setup? I followed the instructions here but the resulting install starts up with a load of errors and no working midi or audio: http://puredata.info/docs/faq/debian
My google searching has mostly turned up recommendations to use some other audio-specific distro (KX) instead of Ubuntu, but I'm not interested in installing a new OS for a single application.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
Today is the official release of Infinite Glitch, an online based artwork that was created using, among other things, Pd-extended and PdGst. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped with the development of these great tools!
You can read through the description below or jump straight to the project page: http://infiniteglitch.com
Every day an incomprehensible number of new digital media files are uploaded to hosting sites across the internet. Far too many for any one person to consume. Infinite Glitch is a stream-of-conciousness representation of this overwhelming flood of media, its fractured and degraded sounds and images reflecting how little we as an audience are able to retain from this daily barrage.
Infinite Glitch is an automated system that generates an ever-changing audio/video stream from the constantly increasing mass of media files freely available on the web. Source audio and video files are ripped from a variety of popular media hosting sites, torn apart, and recombined using collage and glitch techniques to create an organic, chaotic flood of sensory input.
I'm attempting to use pdp_theonice~ to stream theora video to an icecast server. I'm having trouble getting this working - it seems to connect ok as long as there is audio and video being sent to pdp_theonice~ but I can't view the stream with vlc or an embedded html5 player (which I've been able to do when streaming video from other sources to this same icecast server). oggcast~ works just fine.
Does anyone have a simple patch that they know works for streaming theora video to icecast with pdp_theonice~?
I've checked out the giss examples, but these are way more complicated than I need, and hard to debug. Also, they crash when I try to connect (probably because no audio or video is making it to pdp_theonice~, as my tests have shown that pd crashes when you try to connect without audio and video).
I am on Ubuntu 10.04 with Pd-extended 0.42.5.
p.s. alternately.. if there's another way of streaming theora without pdp_theonice~ (using 3rd party software or otherwise) I'd be interested to know this as well.
p.p.s. I already posted this to the list, so I'm sorry if you're now reading this twice.
Is there a way of creating abstractions with the equivalent of [initbang] in pd-vanilla?
Thanks to Max Flämig, Pd t-shirts are now available for mail order here:
Proceeds will be put toward developing better, more complete documentation for Pd. Exactly how has yet to be determined, but there are a few ideas in the works.
Thanks to hardoff for the design concept.
Here's an abstraction inspired by hamster's recent post (http://puredata.hurleur.com/sujet-4261-midi-learnable-mixer-channel).
It adds learned MIDI control to your patches. Learned MIDI settings may then be saved in a text file for loading later. You can create as many control objects as you need, and all settings will be saved to a single text file. Works with both control and note MIDI values.
(note, saved settings do not include current control values, just the learned channel and control/note numbers)
It's called bb_learn and can be downloaded here:
I just wrote up a guide for streaming mp3 audio to a free Shoutcast host.
Anyone know if you can use the OpenGL GLX extension with GEM?
I am a complete and utter noob when it comes to OpenGL, but it seems like this would make it possible to send gemlist data over a UDP network connection. My initial tests seem to indicate that GEM does not support GLX: I tried GLX objects like [GEMglXCreateContext] but they didn't create.
I'm ultimately looking for a way to stream from GEM to a remote computer over the internet, without using the processor intensive [gem2pdp] object and [pdp_theonice~]. Alternatives to GLX or PDP are very welcome too.
I just uploaded a few new abstractions:
-a much more comprehensive sampler-slicer-looper
-gui file browser
-modular, multitrack audio recorder
Let me know if you run into any bugs.
