Pure Data Patches
Pure Data Patches is a series of Pure Data patches that Dr. Lawrence W. Moore has released. The term “patches” essentially means software that one makes in the Pure Data programming environment. One needs PD in order to use these software releases, but as PD is open-source software that is a free download, anyone can use this software. Each release has an accompanying download of the patch file(s) and an accompanying video tutorial that describes how to use the software and how it was built. It is a great way to learn more about PD for one’s own building endeavors.

This video gives an overview of how the patch works and then a detailed recording of the building process. There is a mono and stereo version of the patch. It is convenient to use in your own patches.
