PD Installation and start tips


PD Community


PD under Mandrake (9)

Now you are ready to go. Best is as root/ superuser, because than you can use the -rt parameter:
pd -audiobuf 100 -rt
If you can't go as root, try to increase the audiobuffers
pd -audiobuf 300
Switch off things you don't need. For example add -nomidi when you dont work with midi or -noadc if you dont use audioinput. In fact I didn't get input to run at Access Space so my start looks like
pd -nomidi -noadc -audiobuf 100 -rt
