    @whale-av Thank you SO much for including this and helping me to answer my questions. I think this should certainly be useful for my project. Thank you!

    @seb-harmonik.ar Thanks for the response! Just so I'm understanding – each time a [random]
    object is added to the patch, it modifies the seed? Is there a way to pull that number out or "save" it in a text document or something of the sort?

    As for #3, I just meant any Pd-specific documentation for random seed. Thanks for the Wikipedia article – I think it's WAAYY over my head though. I'll still take a peek though. Thanks!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working on a generative piece of music in Pd and have a lovely array of MIDI notes. I find that every time I open the patch, I get the exact series of pitches, despite the patch's supposed "randomness." I do recall reading something about this way back when, but can't seem to find the specifics. My questions are:

    1. How does one set a new random seed?
    2. Is there a way to save a random seed? (I find that at times, when I edit the patch, it alters the random seed and I get different results. I want to be able to improve the patch while retaining the same pre-assigned note sequence.)
    3. Where can I learn more about the way random seed is utilized in Pd?

    Apologies if I'm asking a question that's already been asked. I searched the forums but couldn't quite find the answer I am looking. Thank you for your time!

    Screenshot 2018-01-19 12.44.38.png Hello everyone,

    I am trying to figure out how to create a directional knob, and I've found that it's harder than it sounds.

    Basically, I have 79 tables. The idea is that as I turn the knob to the right, it turns samples on, as I turn to the left, it turns them off.

    As I've continued to ideate about it, I've realized that each number has to be assigned to a number (I am randomizing which tables play). So when I turn the knob to the right and we hit 0, it randomizes and plays sample 55. When I turn to 1, it plays sample 28, 2 is 38, and so on. However, when I turn to the left from 2 to 1, 2 turns off, When I turn from 1 to 0, 1 turns off.

    I've been thinking about this for a while now and have been creating a total mess of "moses" objects and "select" objects. I can't seem to figure this out. Any ideas about this would be incredibly helpful. Thanks everyone!

    I'm dealing with detecting monophonic signals, in this case a voice. I also want to capture the natural rhythm of human speech, record that information, and therefore have access to variable incoming speed of notes and so on. It needs to be able to detect natural speech patterns as much as possible and be able to replicate it (play it back through a speaker).

    Ideally, this would be set up in a place where there might be background noise, but the patch should be able to distinguish the main melodic content from just background static.

    Thanks for the recommendation regarding the window size! That is good information to know.

    Hello everybody!

    I wanted to get some advice in regards to using pitch detection using the "sigmund~" object.

    Essentially, I am trying to create a system that:

    1. Detects incoming pitch
    2. Records said pitch information
    3. Plays back its own tune based on received pitch data (variable)

    I'd like to emphasize that I am not talking about audio recording, but specific pitch in the form of midi data.

    I've done some tests by playing samples into the object, and I have to say that it's pretty decent at being able to pick up the main melodies, but it is hard to have it working reliably.

    Any further information or advice on pitch detection or any Pd objects/libraries I should check out would be tremendously appreciated.

    Thanks everyone!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm having a major issue at the moment. I just simply don't understand how to load in libraries into pd vanilla on my mac. As a pd-extended user, I've never had to think about this, but now it has become problematic.

    I downloaded 'iemlib,' (the library responsible for the 'any' object) from dekken. I have a dedicated folder on my computer for the externals, so I store it in this folder. In pd vanilla, I go to Preferences->Path and enter the path where all the externals are located.

    Now, when I try to load in the 'iemlib' library, it won't let me. I've declared it as 'declare -lib _pd-externals/iemlib' and it still refuses to work. I've tried going into preferences->startup, and typing in 'iemlib,' and it still refuses. I feel like I've tried everything that I could think of and I'm out of options here. I've been banging my head against the wall for the past few hours now.

    Can anybody please run me through this process? Looking at other tutorials on the forum haven't really helped.

    My operating system is OS X. Yeah I'm using Pd Extended. Haven't switched over to Pd Vanilla, but still have the same issue if I open it in that one too.

    Tried it. Did not work.

    Yeah, and the weird thing is that the "sample-#-curve' works just fine. I'm wondering if it's messing up the other one?
