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. http://processing.org/

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.
