Pure Data is a MODEL for the ease of installation, but it's 100% free software while indulgence:
<ul> either you go to the source: Miller Puckette, "inventor" of Max / MSP, chose dvelopper Pure Data on a free APRS MODEL passing IRCAM::: you can find the last Pd res versions on its website: http://www-crca.ucsd.edu/% 7Emsp/software.htmlsoit you use an installer that contains several libraries dj such as Hans http://pure-data. iem.at / Members / hans (server down times) Note on Mandrake Linux starting from version 10.0, the installation is easy and hassle free one APRS intgration Nyvals site (http:/ / rpm.nyvalls.se /) in the source RPM (Please APO33 (http://www.apo33.org/article.php3?id_article=340) for info) </ul>
What must be understood is that Pure Data is the platform, libraries followed complter functions of Pd for sound, video, the network ...
After install Pure Data should therefore be added and to update the libraries that you want to use: for example for the GEM video on Windows, PdP for Mac OS and Linux
To add a library under Windows, it is "sufficient" to copy the file. Dll corresponding to the / extra and add a text editor in the file Pd.bat the following elements ath "C: Program FilesPure Dataextra" gem-lib
vrifier and that the library has t included in the text window at the launch of Pd
>>> A child's play!
Like Max / MSP, Pure Data will be able to handle MIDI on a Pentium 100, to read or process the video stream in real time camra will require the computing resource
A "Patch" (the program you'll use in couraging or Pd) can be optimized to SAVE the calculation: for example it is unnecessary to leave a box "number" that indicates the envelope value of sound: this kind of box is greedy because it implies a rapid display of a value rpt and we rarely need to see once the finalists Patch
Pure Data is probably the future of the bionic man artist!
MODEL Dvelopp a free, community is dynamqiue
Certainly there are fewer colors for buttons in Max / MSP, using and REFERENCE are much more succinct, but the potential is enormous because anyone can write their own libraries or come amliorer existing libraries and more and more examples or Patch finaliss tlchargeables are on the net
On your box, ....

Ever, it is a software trs well described.
There will always be a solution with pure data, it is sometimes complex trs.
Gnrale configuration is easy?
Let's say that we must understand how a function, APRS once you have the RFLEX to visit the tutorial is to read the help, it progresses quickly trs.
The manual is clear and sufficient?
The tutorials and using pure data are not "clear" or "sufficient", but necessary!
It is also necessary to understand English ...
What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
I use three machines: G4 Cube 450 mhz 1.5 GB RAM SDRAM 120 GB 7200 rpm and 610 quatafire Mac OS 10.4.11
IBook G3 SE 466 MHz SDRAM 576 MB RAM 60 GB 4200 rpm internal sound card and Mac OS 10.4.11
I also use an Arduino controller card that allows me to control it via buttons and potentiomtres.
Athlon XP 2500 + 1600 mhz 512 DDR ram 80 GB 7200 rpm and PCI sound card hercules xubuntu
What performance? (If quantifiable)
Pure data will limit the power of your machine, the iBook G3 dating a lot now, I m'clate really, when you push with a lot of filters on an oscillator for example, "crpite" . But a Manir gnrale, there is always something to make him do whatever the machine host.
This software + hardware configuration is stable?
On my three machines, it has never plant!
How long have you use it?
Over the past year especially, before that he silent install and I did not understand anything! And then one day I took a basic tutorial, and how jj'ai ComenC worked.
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
As ---> infinity of possibilities, routing of a signal, synthse, effects (everything imaginable), and the same edition but for a machine requires a relatively powerful.
The least ---> MaxMSP contrary can not edit all the objects, which made it a less colorful interface, but with those we do ditable patches friendly enough, plastically speaking.
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I test jmax is what allowed me to understand how this kind of soft. Jmax is much simpler than PD and MaxMSP, but more limited. MaxMSP is expensive, more than 450 euros Students being! PD is free and open. As against the version of MaxMSP 5 is really beautiful ...
How do you report qualitprix?
Pure Data is a free and opensource. The price, try to attend the adventure, gifts or dvellopement software. Or nothing at all.
Exprience with, you will do again this choice?
The exprience? She is just beginning ...

Install no problem
pure data The systems installed on all
for more details or below
I work with a macbook white and a sound card edirol fa 101 and a Tascam U.S. 428 (to control PM) no problem with this configuration to the extent that pure data supports multiple MIDI input.
Utilistation pc windows and ubuntu no problems found.
It is a program that allows CRER its own sound and video programs from scratch, so it is not hungry or you optimized memory in your patches will not ratchet you relement you need.
Pure data can be scary at first (I even took me a long time to put in place)
we are faced with a blank page and there it all done.
the trick is going to try and help and browser patches to aid even the potential of the software and the same opportunity to learn 2 of the 3 tips in the Torah.
I learned the Protocol on max msp first for the video and then for the sound, I turned to pure data as it silent free and open source (that is, open to contribution of all).
I would advise everyone to work on data rather than pure max msp why switching between the two is easy (although pure data is more complex but bilbliothque of objects can be rgler problem).
I think that is really the pure data idalie tools for all projects working on the interaction between man and machine through various sensors (the video library with the Gem can be a sensor really int rrssant to the extent that a webcam is cheap)
Courage, an internet connection and friends ready to help you and your ideas are going to be the craziest ...
