The main reason for developing this project is to be able to make Pure Data applications connectable through WiFi.
But they have also started developing some applications. Four of them so far with different functions- A drum machine using drum synthesis, a wobble machine, a acid type synthesizer and a Rhode/chord application.
So it is possible to start to jam already now.
You have to go their website and sign up as a tester and it will take you to the Play Store download links. (For some reason it did not want o show me the page first but after going back and forth for a while I did manage to get the apps downloaded, just saying if it happens to you.)
It is also still in Beta stage so there may be some bugs to be sorted out. But the apps seemed pretty stable to me. Unfortunately I have not been able to try them over WiFi as i do not have it at home...
But one more thing that is very cool is that they have very detailed instructions on how to take Pure Data patches and compile them into APK's.
So this is something that was kind of hard to find out how to do before.
So if you are interested in making music apps for Android this is probably the easiest way to do it. Well it is necessary to learn Pure Data of course.
But that is something that can come in very useful as there is some very interesting things that are coming. For example there will be a VST plug in that can load Pure Data Patches and
n-Track Studio (a DAW) will be able to load Pure Data Patches directly.
The developer have also told me that they may incorporate it into their Android app as well!
To be able to start doing Pure Data patches on Android there is app that can be used for making patches on called mPD.
In either case go and check out the Pure Data Party website and add to the list of
