    Thank you for your fast replies. Works like a charm! Now for a patch that emulated that super snappy Roland TR-808 snare drum. :)

    In the video below somebody managed pretty well to emulate the 808 snare, however the resolution of the video is too low to read text. Therefore I cannot replicate it...

    I'd like to use a Raspberry Pi (Zero) as a snare drum for my drum computer. That drum computer sends midi note 40 (= E2 on a Midi keyboard) if the snare drum needs to sound.

    Is it possible to let Pd Vanilla react to ONLY Midi note 40? And only to the 'note on' message, not the 'note off' message? I've tried it in Ingen and there it (almost) works, but there is no Ingen package for Raspbian (= the OS of a Raspberry Pi).

    @MeneerJansen On which version of the RPI?

    It's a Raspberry Pi 1B+. But aren't they all ARMHF based?

    Since you're the kind developer of Purrdata: why don't the old patches for Pd-extended work flawless? See this topic about the super great Miniwoog patch. I like to use the wonderful patches from http://www.pdpatchrepo.info/patches. But if they do not work anymore... For instance: from the Miniwoog patch the "on screen" keyboard does not work, neither can you load the presets. Sorry to bother you. Thank you for continuing the great Pd-extended work. :)

    I've got a Purr Data package for Raspbian, but not Noobs:

    I see that my version of Linux Mint (17.1 "Rebecca") is very, very old. Mint 17 is based on Ubuntu 14. That's why the old Pd-extended package still worked.

    Ubuntu versions from 16 on do not have the old library version called libgsl0ldbl (link). So in the future Pd-extended will not work in Linux.

    Then there is Purrdata (a fork of Pd-l2Ork which is a fork of Pd-extended). It's executable is, strangely enough, still called Pd-l2Ork. That one still loads this Moog patch. However, the "on screen" keyboard does not work, neither can you load the presets.

    I give up on Puredata. Might give running the Pd-extended Windows version in Wine a go (edit: doesn't work. needs a .bat file that doesn't work). But even that ends someday. Shame that all the forks break some sort of backwards compatibility.

    @whale-av Tried to copy all the externals from ye 'olde source code from Pd-extended to my own installation dir of Pd. That got rid of some errors. But some errors about " | " stayed. That's strange because that's a Vanilla logical operator.

    Then I tried to compile ye 'olde source code from Pd-extended from source code. Got some error about pthread_create@@GLIBC Maybe because pthread does not work anymore in modern C compilers? The current source code compiled without problems on my PC.

    Anyway, I was about to give up and then I tried to install an old Linux Mint package (i.e. pre-compiled software). This luckily installed just fine. And guess what? The Moog patch works excellent.

    There is a downside to all this, however. It's a shame that de kind developers of Pd make a version that does not work w/ our beloved patches anymore. Not even when you use the 'Find Externals' utility. And not even when you copy all the old Pd-extended externals to your current externals directory. A shame that ll that work on great patches from a few years ago go to waste.

    Does anybody know how to compile the old Pd-extended on a mdern Linux system?

    Now for that Pd-extended on a Raspberry Pi....

    @whale-av Thanks for your tips. I use Linux and via the link you posted I can install Pd-extended for very, very old versions of Linux Mint (which is the distro that I use). And I want to use Pd on my Raspberry Pi too, so I'd rather be "future-proof" and try to get it working in Pd Vannilla w/ some externals.

    Problem is that I do not know what externals this patch uses. So I do not know what to download in Pd via the menu: "Help --> Find externals". I've tried to install some externals, but you must not search the name of the "object" but the name of its developer!

    Example: say you want the Filter "lowpass 2.4.6.8.order with freq and Q signal inlets" made by iemlib (see this link). Then in the 'Find Externals' window you must type in iemlib. Not filter or lowpass.

    Another problem is that I might not be using this patch right. I load it in Pd, activate an oscillator by placing a cross next to "on" and raise the volome of the osc and the master volume. I connect a Midi keyboard to my PC, connect it to Pd via qjackctl and play some notes. Nothing happens and I do not see any errors in Pd's console...

    I'd like to try this patch out. But I just installed Pd ver. 0.49.1 from source and it does not work. I think that's because it needs some "externals" that were included with Pd-Extendended. And Pd-extended does not exist any more...

    Can anybody help me out?
