    Check this out, I only learned it existed recently and its open source and therefore free. Also it's originally made by the guy who mad MAX and i initially mistook it for an older version of MAX.


    might not seem like much but i think it looks fun, and is probably a good starting point for anyone interested in producing music this way (MAX 8 costs about 400 USD)

    Hey Cybertooth! This looks way cool but I would like to see you do something with it. I am kind of comfortable at the way I do things now but I am willing to try that. The learning curve looks a bit daunting even though it is visual. Are you going to make something with it? I would love to see that.

    I highly encourage you to try it and it's fully my intention to learn either this or MAX/MSP in full as soon as I'm done with college. which is in a few days.
    I was gonna jobhunt but this whole coronavirus thing has got everything weird, i figured may as well do something with it.
    If anyone is willing to learn with me i will be happy to use Pure Data instead of Max however, that way we could swap patches if you wanted to collaborate.

    i think this is a song with a visualizer done in PD

    The biggest upside i can see to pure data is it's open source nature, which means if you get good enough at using it you could potentially connect other programs to your music by creating outputs and inputs. This would allow you, for example, to plug it into your favorite synth or DAW, or even a custom visualizer. There's a lot of possibilities here for anyone willing to dip their foot in the water.

    but now documentation does exist so prior knowledge or a good teacher is no longer as necessary.
