    hello all, I've been away from pd for a while. Wanted to update pd to the current version. Downloaded and installed the 0.43.4 beta.

    I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.

    As soon as pd opens the main window, an error is thrown:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: pd.exe
    Application Version:
    Application Timestamp: 50c5a23b
    Fault Module Name: StackHash_0a9e
    Fault Module Version:
    Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
    Exception Code: c0000005
    Exception Offset: 05f7df80
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.
    Locale ID: 1033
    Additional Information 1: 0a9e
    Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
    Additional Information 3: 0a9e
    Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

    I have wiped out the pd-extended key from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node with no benefit.

    For some time now I've been having problems opening patches that people have been posting on this forum as *.zip.

    I've just discovered that these are in fact tar.gz archives.

    WinRAR on Windows is capable of extracting tar and gz, but it's not smart enough to detect that the content of the gz is a tar.

    So, what I do is extract the gz file, add a .tar extension to the end of the file, then open it again with WinRAR.

    Hello, I'm running Windows 7, and like other Windows users was dealing with some pretty serious latency even when using ASIO drivers for the Focusrite Saffire Pro 40.

    I discovered that by using the windows task manager to change the priority of the PD process, that I am able to work with vastly lower latency. I was able to reduce the delay in PD audio settings from 50ms to 15ms.

    To do this, start task manager (start->run->taskmgr or ctrl-alt-del) go to the processes tab. The process for PD-Exteded is wish85.exe. Right click on this process and choose priority and change to "realtime". This change must be made each time you restart PD.

    Thanks for the info everyone. I wanted to check out the beta because I was interested in checking out the new GUI.

    Hi Tim,

    There are plenty of people here who would be willing to try to reproduce your problem. But it will involve you sharing your patch.

    Based on your symptoms, it sounds like a possible latency issue. If your latency in audio settings is set too low and PD gets busy doing other things, like disk operations, popping and cracking can occur. So, I would suggest trying a much higher latency setting to see if that smooths things out. And if so, work back down from there.

    It would probably we worthwhile monitoring your cpu usage while your troubleshooting this issue as well.

    Hello, I was able to get the thing moving. The key for me was checking the box next to the BPM which i guess is the start/stop.

    However, I'm getting no audio and this console error:

    error: throw~ Bus0: no matching catch
    ... you might be able to track this down from the Find menu.

    I get the same error on other busses as well.

    I'm on a PC running 0.42.5-extended.

    Hello Gubbins,

    As a noob myself, here are some of the resources I found that I like:

    This is THE book that explains all the examples provided with the pure data installation.

    I also really like Dr. Hernandez's PD video series.

    Those two resources in addtion to this forum will help you build a foundation.

    Does pd have the capability of outputing to multiple audio outputs simultaneously?

    I can imagine implementing this with two separate instances of PD communicating via IP or MIDI.

    In the attached ZIP you will find a version of shaper with the ~>, ~<, and ~== issues resolved.

    And second, a version of wobbly-bass that implements shaper as an abstraction.

    Extract both files into your PD folder, open wobbly-bass, enable compute audio and hit the toggle in the upper left hand corner to turn on/off.

    Thanks to the original authors!

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
