Pure data external for the Helios Laser DAC

help-helios.pd

Version

0.1

note - it's not presently possible to have more than 1 helios object open.

Use

pd_helios currently builds on MacOS, tested on Mojave (OSX v10.14). It should work on both Linux and Microsoft Windows with the appropriate libusb library.

To build

Clone this repo and the source code to pure data (see above)

cd pd_helios

make PDINCLUDEDIR=../pure-data/src/

(or wherever you cloned pure data)

To test the example patch:

pd help-helios.pd

(from wherever you have installed Pd. For the Purr-data distribution of Pd, I used this:)

/Applications/Pd-l2ork.app/Contents/MacOS/nwjs help-helios.pd
