Pure Data

Pure Data (Pd) is a visual programming language developed by Miller Puckette in the 1990s for creating interactive computer music and multimedia works. While Puckette is the main author of the program, PD is an open source project with a large developer base working on new extensions.”  – wiki


During my Sound Engineering studies, I was exposed to this remarkable software, which helped me a immensly to make my final project possible. I became an expert in PD. Here are a few examples.

PDcompresor an audio compressor for Pure Data

While working on a number of projects, I had to use an audio compressor with the known parameters: threshold, ratio, attack, release and makeup gain. I couldn’t find any object or a patch that provide the control that I needed… so I build one that does. I decided to upload it so others will freely be able to use it and learn about the compressor processing.

Guess The Freqs

This project helps sound engineers to improve their frequencies recognition.  It is a trivia-style game, it generates a random frequency and the user needs to recognise it. (This project has also been made in Max/MSP)

You are welcome to download and check it out.
