I’m working on an installation which will make use of 4 pisound raspi with 4 puredata made sequencers sending midi notes and midi cc via the midi out of the pisound.
My problem is that I wanted to have them synchronized by using the abl_link~ external, but I couldn’t manage to install them.
Is there a specific method to install them so the patches will work right away and be in sync when starting them with the button ?
Is there a tutorial anywhere ?
I use the basic raspi system, an up to date pure data and pisound…
Hey! I just tried installing abl_link~ external for armv7 via deken, and it seems to work on my Raspberry Pi 3. I had to untick the ‘Hide foreign architectures?’ box for the plugin to be shown, see the attached screenshot. If you are using Raspberry Pi 2 or older, then armv7 might not work.
It’s nice to see @mzero’s name there by the external, who is a member of our community.
thanks a lot for taking the time.
it shows that my problem might be worst than I thought: I don’t have that preferences button on my dekken window… and I can’t update dekken to your version.
my understanding of all the linux stuff is too limited, so I’ll come back later on this post after doing a bit of linux homework.
Sorry, I am using PD 0.49 version, we’ll share a build of it for Raspberry Pi with you soon
Anyway, I tried the same with 0.47 - I was able to get the armv7 version through the external finder as well, and it installed successfully.
Try installing the plugin while running as root - it will then install it to /usr/lib/pd/extra which is shared with all system users. Close all PD windows and start it by executing
sudo puredata command, then go through with the install.
well yes that’s the problem: I have yet to find how to run as root
Start a terminal window, type in
sudo puredata, and hit enter
Everything you prefix with sudo, gets executed as root.
it worked ! thanks a lot !
Woot! Yay, glad it worked. For the record, I just built and published
abl_link~ for the RaspberryPi - antlr did the hard work of writing it!
