Other Pd Stuff
Pd external for using Wacom tablets on Windows. Remeber to
GUI enhancements for Pd-0.37-1. To apply the source patch, place the
pd_gui_patch file in the
pd/src/ and run
You'll probably need to
again since the makefile is patched (the file
to be compiled and linked). Then recompile.
For Windows, just copy
- Patch Cord Viewer: Lets you see what is being sent over a patch cord.
For signals, shows the maximum value over 2205 samples. Toggle with Ctrl+r in edit
- Highlighted Inlets/Outlets: When patching, the inlet and outlet that will
be connected is highlighted.
- Colored Patch Cords: Set signal and control patch cord color with command
-scolor <n> and
<n> is a 6 digit hex value (e.g.
- Drop Shadows: Turn on drop shadows with command line argument
Harmonic/inharmonic monophonic timbre separator. Pitchnoise~ basically separates
the "pitched" part of a sound from the "noisey" part of a sound.
Pd source patches for colored signal patch cords, highlighted patch cords
for delete, and drop shadows for objects, messages, and atoms. Diff files
were diff'd against Linux 0.35-0 and Windows 0.35-1. I also included the full files of
g_canvas.c and g_editor.c (patch cord coloration), and g_text.c (drop shadows) and the pd.dll binary for Windows.
Hanning, Hamming, Blackman, Cosine, Connes, Bartlett, Welch, Lanczos,
Gaussian, and Kaiser windowing functions.
GrIPD is a cross-platform extension to Miller Puckette's Pure Data
software that allows one to design custom graphical user interfaces for PD
patches. GrIPD is not a replacement for the PD Tcl/Tk GUI, but instead is
intended to allow one to create a front end to a PD patch. The concept is
to create your PD patch normally and then your GUI using GrIPD. You can
then lauch PD using the -nogui command line argument (although this is
certainly not necessary) so only your custom front end will be displayed.
GrIPD, itself, consists of two parts: the "gripd" PD object and an
external GUI window/editor. The PD object was written in C and the
external GUI was written in Python using the wxWindows. GrIPD is released
under the GNU General Public License.
This external allows PD to be controlled via a PC
gameport or USB joystick. For Linux, put the tarball in your main pd
directory, untar, and do a 'make pd_joystick' or 'make pd_joystickusb'.
You will, of course, need either the pc gameport driver (http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~vojtech/joystick/) or
the USB drivers (http://www.linux-usb.org/). For Windows,
the compiled binary is included and should work with all flavors of Windows
(9x, ME, NT, 2k, XP).
This is actually a package of 3 "performance time" gui
externals: sliderbox, buttonbox, and togglebox. Just put the tarball in
your main pd directory, untar, and do a 'make pd_guibox'. They use
Python, GTK and the pygtk bindings so you'll need all of those, but most
linux distributions come with the Python interpretor and the GTK
libraries so all you should need to get is pygtk (ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/python/). With
some twiddling they should be able to work with Windows (I think) and
since they use TCP/IP sockets they could, with a little adjustment, be
used on seperate machines from PD itself. Check out a screenshot.
