PD Patch Loader

plugin NAudio node13 pd sound
Credits: Mark Heath for the NAudio library, the libpd project, tonfilm for the .net wrapper of libpd


This is an example from the Working with the vvvv-sdk workshop at node13.

The example was chosen to demonstrate the steps necessary to include a thirdparty native dependency in a plugin, ie:

  • use ProjectExplorer (Ctrl+j) to add a reference to the managed wrapper of the native dependency
  • add the namespace to the using section of the plugin
  • copy the native dependency to the output directory (\bin) manually

The plugin simply takes a .wav file and a .pd file. While the file is played back using the NAudio the processing is routed through the given pd-patch via the libpd library which can even be sent values to from the vvvv-patch.

Note: This example requires an ASIO driver for your sound card. In case you don't have one, get it from: http://www.asio4all.com

@u7: danks, info added
@tekcor: vvvv should not be relevant in that question. it is just libpd. and libpd is just pd. sou..
