Pure Data (Pd) is a visual programming environment for generating, processing, and manipulating audio. With Pd, you can design your own synthesizer, build custom effects for your guitar, or compose music algorithmically. This workshop will introduce the basic concepts of working with audio in Pd, with a focus on oscillators, sampling, and filters. No experience necessary. We’ll start with a group install; Pd is free and open source software.
What to Bring:
-A Laptop (Windows, Mac, or Linux)
-> If you can install Pd before the workshop, that will save some time. What you want is pd-extended (http://puredata.info/downloads/pd-extended)
-MIDI controller (optional)
