Well you need Pure Data to edit the patches that run on top of the linux-based software of the Organelle. So the only thing that makes it more advanced is… well, nothing. Unless you LOVE to code in Pure Data, and then you’re in heaven.
But thankfully there’s no need to know Pure Data to enjoy the Organelle. The same goes with the Nord Modular. You don’t have to make your own patches, because there are hundreds available for free online. Just load them up into the Micro Modular (for example) and off you go to play it computer free.
Not needing a computer to create patches is technically cool. Sort of. Sure, I could run the Organelle directly if I had an HDMI port on an external display that would likely have been hooked up to a computer anyway. Keyboard, mouse, monitor, and Organelle. Look at me, I’m not using a computer. This is awkward, but so advanced. Or, I could just use my laptop which would be much simpler since that’s the environment that Pure Data would likely be coded in anyway. Create or edit a patch, load it up on the Organelle and then I’m done.
