    Check out http://www.martin-brinkmann.de/pd-patches.html. There are some nice drones here, although the patches are a bit hard to follow.

    If you want to make your own, I'd suggest creating multiple layers. One filtered sawtooth on its own can sound rough, but four or five tuned to a chord can be much richer. Also, don't rely on the basic [lop~] object. Use [bob~] or some other external filter.

    Depending on what you're doing, you could also use [max] to establish a floor for the argument value.

    [loadbang]
    |
    [f $1]
    |
    [max 7]
    |
    ...

    PD now has an external package manager built in, so go to Help --> Find Externals and search for what you want. However, in Windows, the latest version of Vanilla, 0.49, became 64bit, which automatically makes most of the 32bit externals listed on the repo inaccessible (which is really annoying). If you're good at compiling you could try to compile them for yourself. Once it's compiled, tell PD the location of the directory (Preferences --> Path) and you should be good to go.

    If all you want to do it pitch tracking, have a go with Vanilla's native [sigmind~] first.

    By accident I ended up listening to both of @seb-harmonik.ar's tracks at the same time, and it sounded pretty good, lol. If you can't find what you're looking for in any particular track then maybe this is the right approach.

    This won't meet all of your criteria, but you should also check out Robert Henke a.k.a. Monolake, if you haven't already. His earlier and later works are all pretty radical, though ambient, The stuff from his middle period tends to be more club oriented. Layering Buddha is probably my favorite ambient piece of all time.

    I'm 90% sure that it is not possible to test for a connection in Vanilla. But if you don't mind using externals, then there is [iemguts/canvasconnections].

    You can type into those number boxes too--you just have to press Enter afterwards.

    There is an example Shepard Tone in 3.audio.examples --> D09.shepard.tone.pd which might be of help.

    Not sure exactly what the difference is between Shepard tone and Risset...

    [makefilename] will work fine, but in this case there is really no need for it, as you can just put the symbol inside the message box like this:

    [200(
    |
    [pack f $0]
    |
    [read resize $2-audio $1(

    Message boxes don't interpret $0. Instead, you have to pass $0 to them as an argument.

    [o]
    |
    [f $0]
    |
    [read $1-array(
