PPOOLL - Where do I even begin?


    Aug 03 2015 | 8:50 pm
    So, I've been tinkering around in Max for a few months now, running through the tutorials, giving myself little patch goals to test my understanding. I'm getting the basics, but coding from the ground up still seems daunting to me. Anyway, I've come to find that a small handful of the artists that led me to take interest in the Max software also use PPOOLL for live performances. I'd never heard of it, but I was immediately interested. Naturally, I downloaded it (it doesn't work in Max 7, it seems, but apparently it does in the Max 6 runtime? Or did I do something wrong?), and... basically I'm lost. Clueless. Adrift.
    Can someone point me to some kind of cursory guide to understanding it? It's not quite like anything I'm familiar with, and the documentation is practically non-existent. Even YouTube doesn't seem to have anything to offer. What's the best way to approach PPOOLL? Any advice or direction would be appreciated. I'd love to be able to incorporate it into either live or studio settings, I'm not necessarily looking to cop a Fennesz sound or anything, but I would like to understand how to even go about understanding it a bit better.
    Sorry for the broad question / thanks for the help!
