    Is there a node process running that is polling constantly?

    @macrogmittrei It's a massive cliché, but so very true.

    Good topic this - and nice to hear it's a common phenomenon and not just me. A lot of paragraphs starting with "i" to follow :)

    I think the complexity can arise in many other forms of (particularly electronic) music production and compositon. When there are too many choices, it leads one to become blinded to what it is their actual objective. It happens to me a fair amount, and I usually step away from the computer at that point and do something different, or switch to a bit of hardware.

    I do find that being able to mentally 'step away' and reduce the objective down into simple terms is the only way for me to progress. Easier said than done sometimes.

    I also grapple with the identity of whether am I a musician, or a computer scientist/programmer, because I first and foremost believe that I'm on the creative end, so it's hard to rationalise creativity with maths, logic and connecting boxes. But, then I realise that the two are not mutually exclusive and can and do go hand in hand - we are merely mastering our craft. Committing, or recording work is a useful habit - to bring into a more conventional environment.

    To touch on the 'going for a walk' subject raised a while back. I find that it is one of the few activities that I can figure out ideas with clarity - it's my best way to form objectives and clear my mind. Thinking too much about the detail is a deal breaker at that point. Just the idea and try to imagine the end point, and steps to reproduce it should bubble up to the surface (write it down??).

    On an end note, I think I read an interview with Mark Fell of SND who is almost exclusively a MAX user. What resonated with me is that he tries to distill his patches in simplest terms - like one slider or knob that alters everything about the timing, timbre and composition. I find that highly inspiring!

    Hi

    On the off chance, has anyone figured out getting FFTease 2.5.2 working on said version of Pd? I just get exploding output.

    thanks

    To get Cyclone working I had to add it as a path. Startup works for example, zexy with is a compiled binary - that is, a library of objects compiled into one binary.

    It's a bit confusing I know!

    Si

    @gsagostinho yep that's me. Dan Wilcox has something working by fiddling with the tcl code for the gui

    @noDSP its on OSX. Apparently omitted whilst figuring out how best to adhere to Apple Human Interface Guidelines....?!

    anyway Dan has it so changes to the textboxes instantly update the gui :)

    Hi Gilberto

    Yes that's it exactly. Strange that it would go missing on a later build. Maybe I'll put it to the list.

    Thanks

    Been a bit out of Pd world for a while. Does anyone know what happened to the Apply button in the Properties dialog? It's in Pd-extended, but I'm going the Vanilla route and adding only bits I need.

    Is it possible with gui plugins?

    Cheers

    Hullo

    Just wondering what the difference between delay(ms) and block size is in the Audio prefs.

    Any there exclusive, or does one override the other...I can't seem to find any documentation for it

    cheers

    Hi

    Does anyone know whether sinesum has an option to NOT create the extra 3 values for interpolation? It seems to do this automatically. I want to create the waveforms and export them to use in another app which uses a different method to interpolate tables. The sinesum message is very quick and convenient however and handily normalises the array to boot

    Any ideas?

    cheers

    Hi -

    does anyone know whether the C API for Pd is similar to Max with regard to externals? I've been chatting to the developer of these plugins, who has also created an [au~] external for Max/msp, that allows patching audio units into the graph.

    It occurred to me that the APIs should be similar in that only a few small tweaks would enable us to create this object, which I personally have been wishing for ages. I wish my skills were that advanced that I could provide the answer myself. Would this be a feasible job? The developer has kindly offered the source code and whole heartily supports porting this to Pd (on os x), but does not have the time.

    cheers
