hi folks! a few questions on Zynthian OS if you don’t mind. i would be using this with PureData and i know there’s a PD layer available. i would imagine that external objects/libraries are supported as long as they can be compiled for 32 bit ARM? my setup is mostly vanilla but i do have a few libraries i’m using with external objects.
currently my instrument setup consists of a couple of instances of Fluidsynth running as external object in PD, but i know that it’s possible to create layers with Fluidsynth LV2 plugins in them. so this makes me wonder if you could route data between layers (MIDI data is fine, but OSC data routing would also be needed via ethernet). can incoming OSC and MIDI data be routed to specific layers as well? essentially i’d want the PD layer to be the only receiving layer for external MIDI or OSC data outside of the Zynthian, but be able to control parameters on other layers from the PD layer patch. the Zynthian wiki on PD seems to indicate that OSC support on a PD layer isn’t implemented yet, but could be.
but i am a bit curious - as far as audio signal routing is concerned, can a PD layer take a audio input signal from several specific layers, or does Zynthian OS basically handle all of that? like does the input to PD show up like an interface where layer 1 and layer 2 Fluidsynths can come in as inputs on a virtual multichannel device?
any assistance welcome but definitely feedback from anyone who’s used PD in Zynthian especially would be very helpful. thanks!
