As part of the pd-LAunch week, Chris McCormick will be teaching a workshop on using pdlib as a sound engine for other applications on April 29th at CRASHspace.
Pd As Your Embedded Audio Engine
“Pd as your embedded audio engine” will teach all about embedding libpd as the sound engine for your app, whether its iPhone, Android, Java, OpenFrameworks, Processing, etc. This workshop provides a broad spectrum of different ways of connecting Pd to other things. Having hardware isn’t a requirement either. The workshop will cover ways of interfacing with Pd from computer to computer. Bring your laptop and devices that you want to install libpd on (Android, iPhone, etc.)
Here is an outline of topics:
- History of Pd as an engine
- Ways to interface with a Pd process:
- Midi & OSC
- Python + sockets
- Parsing patches in three languages
- libpd on Android and iOS
- RjDj and ScenePlayer
Students will need a laptop and should have Pd-extended installed and working (download for free from http://puredata.info) – it is available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Space is limited. Cost is $100. Sign up at the CRASHspace store.
