I have never used PD but Max is quite easy when it comes to abstracting bits of code, but I do indeed feel like text-based programming would be easier sometimes. Especially with the example a couple pages ago which is a wavetable synth built around sorting algorithms, implementation of which is highly masochistic to do in Max on its own, perhaps bubble sort being an exception.I'd be semi-interested, although I tend not to have any free time at the moment on accounts of the baby.
The main issue that I've had whenever I've tried PD is that it's very low-level but there doesn't seem to be any real culture of re-use around it, so every time you want an ADSR envelope or a resonant filter or whatever I end up building it from scratch. Also as someone who does "regular" programming for a living, I end up thinking how much easier it'd be to do the low-level stuff in a text-based programming language.
Perhaps for a bit of fun during lockdown 3 vector could lead a zoom workshop for us on how we can become Mark fell and rian treanor
I've done a workshop in using this funny sequencer a while ago (as a part of promoting some mag release I wrote for a bit earlier), didn't have a proper mic back then so had to do it at uni studios.
if you promise to drink/talk on zoom I'm up for it and generally not be quiet- my internet is being installed on thursday. max is a bit tough to get straight away though, just as a warning.
Evening's alright, I'll do some fiddling around the house chores and so on.Oh wow, this is happening, nice one vector.
Today? What time? Later the better for me, was gonna go for a walk. Evening would be better probably, like 7 or even 8?
I have literally no idea on questions, I'm probably the worst person to ask. I just want to make something really simple.
Do I need to download something? I've got mac only, is that OK?
If timeframe is the problem I think we can just move it around a bit? Unless catalog enjoys a highly intimate setting and wants to be there by himself.dunno yet if i'll be around for that but i hope it can happen.
