What will you be doing on this workshop?
On this programming with audio programming workshop, you will learn how to use Pure Data (or Pd) as a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video and graphical processing. Working with different frequencies of sound, creating different musical notes, sequencers and moving into sound synthesis, this session is perfect for anyone with an interest in music, composition, sound and learning about audio synthesis.

- Be able to use software to programme sine tone frequencies
- Be able to create a visualisation of sound waves
Aims of the Session:
1.1 Identify what data flow programming is and it’s possibilities
1.2 Use software to input different objects into the patch
2.1 Demonstrate the application of using a safety clipping object
2.2 Identify the importance of safety clipping when working with audio tones
2.3 Produce a simple audio compilation by using different arguments and parameters
3.1 Produce a visualisation of a sound wave by using software features
