    @Metronome The simplest way is just to route midi from cakewalk to puredata and audio from puredata to cakewalk. I believe there are some ways to create plugins from puredata patches but they are limited somewhat regarding externals?

    There are also a few DAWs which support loading of puredata patches directly, I believe Ableton does and Radium certainly does.

    aha, so they take messages when you name them? :)

    Anything put after the name of an object is an argument, as of now [inlet], [outlet] and their audio rate counterparts have no arguments to pass too so you can safely name them, the name just ends up as an unused argument. The problem with this is that someday Miller may decide to give these objects arguments and now your named inlets and outlets all fail because that name will be passed as an argument. So best practice is not to name the objects directly with arguments but indirectly with comments.

    Edit; Forgot, [inlet~] and [outlet~] do have arguments so names here could have unexpected results. [inlet] and [outlet] are still argumentless.

    @porres From what I understand when the manual reaches a state where the authors feel it is done it is published as a pdf on www.flossmanuals.net and can be downloaded or bought as print on demand, the web version is then archived at the archive.flossmanual.net address. The version at write.flossmanuals.net is a new version which was opened to continue developing the next edition, but it was never worked on after the first version was published. To sign up for working on it you fill out the form at https://www.flossmanuals.org/get-involved-0, I applied for access on Saturday but have yet to hear back.

    and brown paper envelopes are a rarity nowadays.......

    You are confusing "manila" and "vanilla." Manila is a fiber like hemp which is used to make various things and they all end up that sort of brown color. Vanilla in this use just means plain and unadorned, like plain old vanilla ice cream with no toppings. Fairly common usage, at least in the US.

    Edit; That was somewhat pointless and pedantic. Seemed very relevant and on topic while I was waiting for my coffee to brew.

    not out of place inside FLOSS.

    FLOSS seems to be fairly fluid in its definition of "manual" and they cover a wide range of types of documentation, from their main page "We create booklets, course materials and manuals," so it should not be out of place.

    1. Update it and just let it continue being a quick and simple tutorial to using PD for standard synthesis and sequencing techniques. Call it the tutorial it is and add a link to the official manual. No need to really maintain it much, just let it serve the same purpose it has, the information it provides does not really change, which is why it has endured.

    I do not really have an opinion on it, but as I said in the other thread, I am willing to do some of the work.

    @porres First page not first result. For your same search and no history I get the floss site for the 4th, on duckduckgo it is the 3rd, the first result which is not puredata.info on both. So a good number of people are clicking that link. I would say the Floss manual is aimed at a different audience, those who want analog style sequencers instead of markov chains. It serves a different purpose than the manual.

    @emviveros It looks like you need to sign up here https://www.flossmanuals.org/get-involved-0, they disabled the simple account creation due to spam issues. I have filled it out to see about getting signed up to edit it, I am not much good at writing documentation but there are some areas I can improve. This seems a worthwhile project considering that this manual is often on the first page of google results for any question about PD and getting it updated also gets the multitude of links and references to it up to date at the same time. Hopefully a few others from the community will also join in to update it.
