this isn’t the kind of “I want to build a very cheap Organelle clone post” but I have the feeling that there is a lot of interest in using the organelle patches in different technical environments and I would love to share ideas.
I experiment with the Rpi (with hifiberry sound card) and a two simple korg controllers. I’ve been using pure data for quite some time now but always struggled to develop a modular system to reuse my patches and use patches from other people easily. The organelle patches seem to be a very good starting point to build my own stuff but also a great resource for inspiration (technical and creative).
I found this stepmother patch last week (https://patchstorage.com/stepmother/) which helped to get most organelle patches running on my Rpi. The page feature was missing but I added this very fast. Right now I am controlling everything from my midi controller. I use the display in the stepmother patch as my display which is ok so far - it loads different pages very well but it doesn’t display the graphical stuff.
Does anyone have an interest in the updated stepmother patch? Let me know, I can make beautiful and just upload it.
But my main question was this: Is there anyone else interest in a project like this? I don’t have a lot of knowledge but maybe for someone else it can still be interesting. Or maybe someone is reading this and knows so much more then me and would love to give me a hint.
In the following weeks I want to build an arduino-midi-controller with an oled display. I want to see if I could display the screen information there. I am planning to let the controller and arduino communicate through usb-midi. In that way a patch like stepmother could be used on a much stronger computer and run organelle patches which are also much more demanding.
