pd_helios

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 builds on Ubuntu 16.04 x64 but I haven't got it to work - using a VM, don't know if this is the issue. It should work on Microsoft Windows with the appropriate libusb library.

To build

Clone this repo and the source code to pure data

git clone git@github.com:timredfern/pd_helios.git
git clone https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data
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 

Problems with old versions of MacOS (specifically EL Capitan)

Install libusb from Homebrew

First follow these instructions: https://brew.sh/

Then:

brew install libusb
