Pure Data a go-go

Monday, November 21st, 2005

Last Friday Rodney gave Jen and I a v.good intro to pure data (thanks!). Now I just need to find some time to do some fiddling around before all his tips fly out of my head.

He also suggested I check out another open source app called Processing which I have downloaded but haven’t had time to look at yet. Some of the things people have created with it look interesting though.

Pure Data

Monday, October 31st, 2005

Today Alastair convinced me to give Pure Data a go (similar to Cycling 74s MAX/MSP but free). So I’ve been downloading bits and pieces and doing tutorials all afternoon. At the moment I’m very excited at all the possibilities and feeling confident that I can get my head around it all. Haven’t made anything yet so it could be false courage. I like the fact that its available for multiple platforms and that its free which will mean I could potentially use it for my teaching at UNSW as well.
