i would like to announce and present ppooll (formaly known as lloopp) to this forum. http://ppooll.klingt.org
ppooll can be described as a collection of about 100 max-patches that are networking with each other. it is a tool for live improvising audio and quite a few musicians all over the world use this for their live sets.
it is a powerful concept of having different simple or complex max-patches working together dynamically.
- flexible preset handling,
- open routing architecture for messages, signals and jitter matrices,
- cross-patch buffer handling,
- saving environments,
ppooll is open source, all patches are open to look inside copy-paste and modify.
it takes only a few steps to integrate any "own" patch into the system.
patches of ppooll are written by different authors and anybody who likes the idea of sharing patches, is highly welcome to join the ppooll.
(a note on max6: the latest version of ppooll is basically working in max6 except of a few dynamic patches, that depend on sending signals from within a poly~, which eventually will be fixed in max6.)
there is no real manual, but lots of info available.
start with the readme of the download package and follow the instructions there pedantic.
then open ppooll_host
click on "ppooll" there for more info
all the other patches are loadable from the first menu below "ppooll"
don’t forget to turn ON audio
