External Libraries

For those unfamiliar with programming, py4pd will be useful through its libraries. In essence, these libraries consist of Python code that can be used as PureData Objects. Because of the simplicity of Python, there is a new world of possibilities for PureData Objects. Presented below is a compilation of libraries used, for now, in my musical composition workflows. If you created a library, let me know to put it here too.

Check py4pd installation process here.

You can download the libraries using deken. To install the library search for the library name.
