"Pd" stands for Pure Data and
is a graphical Computer Music System written by
Miller S. Puckette
It works in a similar way as Max (a Computer
Music and MIDI system for the Macintosh from
Opcode) or jMax from IRCAM.
Pd is open source software, it is free for any
use and can be downloaded from the internet.
Pd runs on Win32, macOS and Linux platforms.
It is easy to extend Pd with third-party
plug-ins (so-called "externals").
Many collections of externals (so-called
"libraries") are already available.
