* Launch the netpd.exe in netpd-2.2 directory.
chat automatically connects to the server and you can
now talk to other users.
Click 'list' to get a list of currently connnected users.
* Launch the netpd.exe in netpd-2.3.0 directory. Chat automatically connects
to the server. You can now talk to other users currently online.
Click *list* to get a list all connnected users.
* Click the 'unpatch' button in chat to launch the unpatch instru-
ment manager. If there is already a session going on, the instru-
ments used in the ongoing session are automatically loaded (they
are first downloaded from other users, if necessary).
* Click the unpatch button in chat to launch the unpatch instrument manager.
If there is already a session going on, the instruments used in the running
session are automatically loaded (they are first downloaded from other users,
if necessary).
* Load instruments with unpatch by clicking the square button next
to the 'netload instrument' label. Browse to netpd/instruments and pick
an instrument (if your netpd/instruments directory is empty, you need
to get some instruments first. Read above).
* Load instruments into the current session by clicking on any of the
instrument names in the upper scroll list.
Alternatively, just type the name of the instrument (without the
extension .pd) into the symbol box and hit enter.
extension `.pd`) into the input box and hit enter.
* Play an instrument by clicking its name in unpatch. The instru-
ment's GUI pops up and you can now manipulate the instrument
at your will. Beware other users are able (and supposed) to
manipulate the instrument to their will as well.
* Show an instrument's GUI by clicking on its name in unpatch's lower section.
You can now manipulate the instrument's parameters. Any changes are instantaneously
synchronized between clients. Anyone can manipulate anything, so please be
cautious and considerate when joining an ongoing session.
If you're lucky, someone is online and might help you get started. This is the easiest
and fastest way to get accustomed to all the instruments and how they interact with each
other. Of course, you can explore the instruments on your own as well. Maybe start
with "master" and "sine".
