DESCRIPTION

PongX is a collection of 64 modules that can connected together in a nearly infinite number of ways. You can add modules to the interface, drag them around, and attach them to each other using the mouse.

To create a module, click the 'Add New' button, choose a module, then click anywhere on the interface. To connect to other modules, simply click and drag from the outputs/inputs. To delete connections, right click on the inputs. To delete modules, right click on the module name.

TURN YOUR SPEAKERS DOWN WHILE EXPERIMENTING! It takes a while to learn all of the weird nuances of this system.

PongX is an ensemble that was written a few years back. Initially I meant to fix up several aspects of it, but at this point I'm so far removed from the codebase that doing any more work seems unlikely.

Very interesting. The UI is out of this program, and the sounds make sense. And they talk!

I have been using Reaktor for quite a while - mostly just for the Library, but this is one of the best things I have seen in the user lib for years.

Very cool design. At a first glance it also looks rather "modding friendly". Thanks!

Very impressed with this one, nice job. Easy to understand UI with a lot of options, can't find fault with that.

@michael, adding new ones would be pretty tough, but deciding you want less of a certain module and replacing it with something else would be quite simple. honestly you're probably smart enough to figure it out on your own, just find the stacked macro with 64 macros all named 'container' and i think you'll work it out just fine ;) i just had a catastrophic computer failure where i lost all of my files, so it might be a minute before i can make that tutorial...

also, the individual containers are VERY easy to modify if you so desire. they have 4 ins and one out and all necessary info is piped in to each macro.

thanks for the comments everybody. @sandy, you can solve both of those problems using the mixer module. i think i had my reasons for this but i can't remember what they were.

What an achievement! That's thinking outside the box. I totally see you lost touch with the code after awhile... Stunning work!

...wow...! I love the concept, love the sound, love the eerie 80's vector-graphics vibe...tremendous work all around! I have a one bug to report and a few minor suggestions. In the delay modules, the delays should be wired directly to the output rather than through the mixers--otherwise, the delay is inaudible without the feedback turned way up. Apart from that I was surprised the oscillators do not have a pitch modulation input, and it would be nice to have a trim/master volume control, say, in the output module. Make no mistake though--you are in fact my new god.

A Tutorial on how to add new modules would be great.

I can't believe that your giving this away, when you first showed me this I was sure this would be your first commercial release. Thank you for this, its great work.
