Out Through the Outlet: Making sounds in real time with Bela and Pure Data
In this workshop you’ll get an introduction to Bela, a platform for ultra-low latency audio and sensor processing. You’ll get to know Bela, become familiar with what’s involved in real-time digital signal processing, and discover how to use Pure Data with Bela to control sensors and make sounds. Using a Bela system, a breadboard and any components available (or ones you bring with you), you’ll be able to make sounds.
From the Bela website: Bela is an embedded system for real-time audio processing with ultra-low latency. Based on the BeagleBone Black single-board computer and featuring a custom hardware and software environment, Bela integrates audio processing and sensor connectivity in a single high-performance package.
Bela is an ideal platform for musicians, instrument designers, audio enthusiasts and interactive artists.
Bela was designed for audio hardware projects, but it doesn't stop there. Bela is ideal for any project that requires ultra-fast processing of multiple streams of data for maximum responsiveness. Bela is the core of many electronic musical instruments, but has also been used for kinetic sculpture, interactive installations, even a game played in an analogue oscilloscope.
