Readoholic: E-books on Pd – Pure Data

March 16, 2011

Arduino microprocessors could be programmed and used not only with a synonymous software, but with Pd – Pure Data and Max/Msp programs for graphical interface in audio & multimedia processing and interactive music usage.

Hence, I’ve decided to include in Readoholic few electronic books (and tutorials) about Pd – Pure Data, which is an open source project created and programmed by Miller Puckette (author of Max, too).
