Pd Recipe Book

sound programming with Pure Data

This is a basic how-to-book about "Pure Data (Pd)", an open source software to learn sound programming utilizing graphical programming environment. Pd has the same roots as Max/MSP, and plays the sounds by connecting small boxes called "object" to control data flow.
This gives you a recipe of rhythm machine, synthesizer, and many more to build up interactive system structure. Suitable for beginners.
