Hello people, Im afraid as the subject suggests i am a brand spanking newbie without a clue and im hoping one or two of you wise old mentors out there could give me a hand. I want to get into PD as im bored of the samplers and synths i have been using and also unable to afford much in the way of software and want to move to the next level. As far as i can tell that is PD.
I am using Windows XP and would be interested in using PD as standalone or VST instrument but preferably stand alone if possible. Im interested in mangling samples audio, sequencing/beat making and synth making.
I have worked out getting PD to run gem picture stuff but cant really find any suitable audio stuff. Can any of you help?
I would REALLY, REALLY appreciate some simple step by step instructions on what externals to download how to install them and exactly how to get them going !
Thanks mate, ive been having a look around but when i try and download a drum machine for example it just comes up as file and doesnt even have an extension. Damn im so lost
If anyone could point me to exactly the right thing to get a drum machine - synth - sequencer patch i would be very happy...... especially if its step by step for dummys like me
Cheers for the reply
It sounds like you use it standalone - is that correct??
Are there any particular patches which would have an environment to create tracks on to get a feel of what it can do ? For example a patch with would include sequencer - beats, synths and samples??
Can it record the output to wav etc ?
Im aware i have a lot of learning to do but id really like to see how to use it to build complete tracks before i invest my limited time and very limited brainpower into it!!!
Many thanks Alan
