Hello Pd people,
Here to share my latest project, which was a DJ Set with live virtual instruments.
Open-source Dj software (Mixxx) has a way to send a midi clock in quarter notes via a Virtual MIDI Bus and this can be used to synchronize with Pd, add more resolution to the clock (sixteenth notes), add synths, drum machines, effects, etc.
Fun way to get into DJing and do live remixes.
And here's a taste of how it sounds:
Download the patch here: https://patchstorage.com/av-soundscape-mars/
Data visualization patch for "mars" soundscape. RGB and movement data were extracted to a .wav file using GEM. The data was then used to sonify using different instruments along with various random algorithms to create more variety.
AV concept and data programming done on TouchDesigner by Andres Ponce Soundscape and sound programming done on Pure Data by Miguel Moreno Interface was added in post using DaVinci Resolve.

@JoshuaACNewman Between the pd distributions I listed?
Maybe just plug data, it doesn't support externals, only the ones bundled: else and cyclone externals
All the other ones are similar to pd vanilla.
Ah, there was another version that might interest you, I don't recall if it has autocompletion, but it is more graphic:
Personally, Max seems more user-friendly and might be easier to cook something up, but in the long run it's not sustainable for universities and students a like, since it requires buying licenses.
Maybe not pd related, but might be relevant: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/makecode
Hello @JoshuaACNewman ,
Yes, there's the autocompletion plug-in:
And there's also a pd distribution used in the CEAMMC (Centre for Electroacoustic Music Moscow Conservatory) that comes with this feature as well as a toolbar and a big external library:
Even though it is still in beta, I would recommend Plug Data, it has auto-completion, has a dark theme, comes included with the else library and can be used as a DAW plug-in, although it uses different shortcuts than pd vanilla:
Two other projects I would recommend checking out:
https://www.automatonism.com/ - A modular synthesizer in Pd (you can actually click on buttons to create the modules instead of typing them)
http://malinette.info/en/? - programming interactivity toolkit.
I'm now curious about what software you could use to build this macro keyboard, let me know
@JackOats Yes, you could make some adjustments to make it a Tom or Snare even!
Add the linear ramp to the phase combined with the distorted exponential ramp to get a higher pitch.
Then use an inversion of your linear ramp to make an exponential decay to act as an amplitude envelope.
Something like this: ramp-tom.pd
That black background with colored comments is thanks to Pd-next, it is essentially Pd vanilla with a visual overhaul.
First download and install it here, and follow the instructions to make the custom color file work.
Once you do that, download my theme (vital-theme), copy and replace the contents of colors-plugin.tcl with mine
We are open to change to a new wiki system, hosting, etc. But for starting I think it's great.
I totally agree with an "online reference", max objects have it we could too
Sorry for the offtopic question @60Hz but how can I change the color theme in Pd-ceammc?
Starting this May 1st we will be holding weekly meetups at the Pure Data Discord Server 🎛
Its purpose is to share our knowledge and help each other’s projects 🤝
See you there!
