Bookworm - Pure Data resources.


There are many links to lots of information investigated whilst building the patch, feel free to delve into the world of pure data and see what you can come up with.

Keeping the patch simple to start with before building any additional features is important when considering the GUI (general user interface) as it's very easy to get carried away constantly building.

This project eventually solely focused upon creating a robotic sound generator from the voice and so adding lengthly patches for affects was put down so that the user interface remained easy to use.
