I am using PD for audio since a couple of years. Now I would like to extend that.
I started with GEM. But Ofelia looks pretty amazing.
Does it make sense to go directly to Ofelia?
If yes; what would be the best way to learn it?
Check out openFrameWorks?
Check out how Lua scripting works?
Any suggestions? What's the way to go in 2021?
(((So many ways to go......)))
What I want to do:
add visuals to audio, also creating standalone apps (I did some with pd party and mobmuplat.)
Thanks a lot, David.
I´ll check slippery chicken and I´ll take another look at (midifile) again.
Qlist seems to be a good option; I am generating scores with notes.pd and LilyPond. Lilypond generates the midifile I´d like to run in PD.
I would like to run a midi file with quarter tones ( like 60.5) in pd.
I tried cyclone/seq and mrpeach/midifile. Both externals seem to round up quarter tones to halftones. So 60.5 becomes 61 etc..
Maybe someone has a solution for that!?!? That would be awesome.
@EEight thank you! glad you like it!
Sure, let's talk about it. Though I am still a rookie with PD.
A lot comes from this tutorial: http://www.pd-tutorial.com and messing around with stuff.
At this session I controlled the patch with the computer directly. Otherwise just standard midi controller ( akai LPD8, Keith McMillen 12 step when playing guitar).
I don't use alfaloop. I use a basic looper with phasor > tabread4~ and a one shot sample player. I added stuff for transposing and a fwd./ reverse switch, multiply it many, many times. And I put volume ramps with line~ almost everywhere, to get it as clean as possible. SamplePlayer.pd
I have a state/saving solution using a textile: Save-Load-Presets.pd
My Fxs: mainly experimental vd~ stuff. Again, a lot of messing around.
Hope, this answers your questions.
