A collection of STK Physical and FM synthesis objects are now available in Pd. Check out the following objects:

You might like to experiment with a collection of STK Physical and FM synthesis objects.  To make them available in Max/MSP, you will need to install [http://www.music.columbia.edu/PeRColate/ PeRColate].  If you are using Windows, [http://theguitarzeros.com/fretbuzz/PeRColate-v0.9b5.zip look here].

Recently, [http://megrimm.net/software/PeRColate-OSX-Intel-10.5/ PeRColate was compiled again for Pd for OS X]. If all else fails, [[Stk2pd]] should work for Linux or OS X.

To install on Windows, copy the contents of the PeRCOlate_objects (Win) directory to your C:\Program Files\Cycling '74\Max 5.0\Cycling '74\max-externals directory. Then copy the PeRColate_help contents to C:\Program Files\Cycling '74\Max 5.0\Cycling '74\max-help to enable help.

We demonstrate sound synthesis using a series of patches.

  • If you are using Pd, save the series of patches for Pd pd_lecture.zip to your computer and uncompress them.
  • Start up Pd.
  • Read and try the patches.
  • Look through further example patches: In Pd, the examples can be found in the 'Help' Menu. In Max/MSP, see the Max Tutorials and MSP Tutorials in the Help menu.
  • Look at the links for Pd and Max/MSP on the PID Links page.
