this is awesome news.
I have an interest in a few specific libraries that were in pd-extended so i am curious.
I have learned that Organelle runs pd with Arch linux. Is it safe to assume one can compile externals ourselves or is there something extra or special required?
You can have .pd_linux externals right in your patch folder. Pd will always look for them there. There is also a folder on the root file system (boot disk, the SD card on the back) where Pd looks for externals, but it is usually preferable to just put them in the desired patch folder to keep all resources your patch needs in one place. For example check out the Drummy patch and you will see the freeverb.pd_linux in there with the other files.
Sweet that was what i was hoping for and i have been working on a folder just like that today. I think i am going to make a BBCut based granular drum kit with Reverb and a moog filter but i am not sure where to grab any documentation related to making my first patch. Did i miss it completely on here? i don’t see a how to but admittedly i have been pouring over harddrives looking for some conversion candidates
