In this world of parallel dynes, pure:dyne has been created to provide a complete and ready made environment for artists and developers who are looking for a system dedicated to real time audio and video processing.
The dyne:II project provides tools and an optimized platform to try out and work on a large range of applications. The pure:dyne customization by goto10 comes with optimized and tested software such as supercollider, icecast, csound, packet forth, fluxus and much more, including of course pure data and a great collection of essential externals and abstractions (PDP, PiDiP, Gem, GridFlow, RRadical, PixelTango …). Thanks to the dyne:II compatibility all the Home Studio classics” have not been forgotten (Ardour, LADSPA, seq24, Rezound …) and numerous essential graphics software are also bundled (Inkscape, Gimp, Blender …).
The pure:dyne project is a growing community effort maintained by media artists for media artists. It is an ideal platform for audiovisual performances, installations and FLOSS+ART workshops.
