Purr Data -IS- for Real-Time Audio/MIDI projects
Further to my #585 (closed) "Purr Data -IS NOT- for real-time MIDI and Audio projects!" issue, I would like to close this particular discussion with a recap which could be usefull to all performers using GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows.
1- All platforms -- For limiting the very poor MIDI/Audio Real-Time behavior of Purr Data with its Pure Data Vanilla engine when using several GOPs on medium to complex projects, it is MANDATORY to use @jwilkes instructions (Russian (nested) dolls workaround) for building efficient project architectures limiting mouse actions on real-time data: see.
This should remain true at least until Purr Data will evolve: "There's an outstanding GSoC project to change this algorithm so that you don't get those spikes."
2- Only GNU/Linux -- In add to above, a specialized and by default very well tuned Audio/MIDI distribution, like the newest Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS with its Ubuntu Studio Controls utility and all associated things, is closing the gap for the remaining few 10%s spikes: see.
My Purr Data projects got a second youth, a second life! It's all about Music!
