  • Puredata? Max? Frequency Analysis/ visuals generation??? Anybody???

    Anybody into this kind of stuff here? It's fairly heavy and not something I expect out of HC posters but I've also never been to THIS forum



    I just started really fleshing out my skills here and its been a lot of fun. Anybody got any cool ideas or patches they want to share? How do you approach visuals? Do you at all?

    I've got some cool PD patches I'LL share... if other people are willing. Got a couple cool ones so far, one generates 3D shapes and makes them change size, shape and color according to frequency response and you can control parameters on how that happens... distort it out and get some crazyass line patterns, etc.... Another one I have blends between a set of videos based on bass frequency amplitude.. I also have a chaos synth and I'm working on a video synth



    Anybody know if its possible to render PD's GEM into a virtual GEM window which can then be used as a video source? like, use that render to skin a polygon?



    Or if anyone has a patch to save preset groups and recall on demand that would be AWESOME

      What is this? What does it do?

        Looks pretty interesting. So much cool, abstract, geeky stuff has come from or been inspired by IRCAM.





        But where are the top 40 hits?

          Pure Data has been used as the basis of a number of projects, as a prototyping language and a sound engine. The table interface called the Reactable[4] and the iPhone app rjdj both embed Pd as a sound engine.



          Pd has been used for prototyping audio for video games by a number of audio designers. For example, EAPd is the internal version of Pd that is used at Electronic Arts (EA). It has also been embedded into EA Spore[5]



          Pd has also been used for networked performance, in the Networked Resources for Collaborative Improvisation (NRCI) Library.[6]



          Looks like it's used for numerous things in audio as well.

            Oy! Why can't more people just play the banjo and be done with it?

              It's a graphical programming environment designed to work with audio, but capable of actually ANYTHING. Basically instead of lines of code, you use little boxes that act like pedals when you put the right word in them, then connect them with lines.



              Thats a drastic oversimplification, but that's pretty much what it is. And it's pretty easy to use -- like i just put a little box and write "bonk" in it, and it outputs comprehensive frequency analysis data that i can just hook up to other controls, that are controlling video or causing the audio to change itself.. or anything. You can control robots with this stuff, most people just don't.



              It's really overwhelming at first but then you realize that you don't have to know everything about it to do what you want to do because most of it has already been dont by someone else on the internet and you can just look at how they did it

              Yeah it was designed for audio, but like I said it's capable of doing basically anything a regular programming language can do. If you know C++ you can even write your own PD objects or edit the native ones

                how bout you play banjo, and I'll project awesome visualizations all around the room that follow everything you do exactly, using the awesomeness that is PD



                Then I'll probably want to play your banjo too

                    But is it as good as Milkdrop?

                      never used milkdrop, but it looks kinda lame. capable, but just lame. The visuals were not good. Kinda gross looking, actually- reminiscent of slime or mud or coagulated body fluids. Ew



                      PD is less "smooth"... but that's a good thing. It actually looks cool and doesn't look like some kid of alien primordial soup

                        There was a time when I was really interested in MAX/MSP, CSound, PD and related audio languages until I found that they're more trouble than they're worth. I'd rather play an actual instrument, whether it's a synth, piano , guitar or whatever, than pretend I'm doing something intellectually and artistically profound by programming stuff that commercial companies can do better.

                        Sitting in front of a computer for hours building a generative music algorithm that makes some amusing random blips & bleeps wasn't my idea of making music.

                          Haha, I feel you. I was there for a while, making the bleeps and bloops algorithms, then I stopped messing with it for like a year.



                          I got back into it for what it's capable of with visuals. And what I learned is that while it seems more trouble than its worth, it's actually no trouble at all. there are patches ALL OVER the internet, and included in the program. Just glue em together and customize them a little and BAM you have your own custom thing, capable of doing exactly what you want it to

                              You say that like it's a bad thing. MILKDROP is really pretty cool... One version of it was 3D anaglyph red/cyan capable... I used to stare at it for hours...
