I've used PD before and wasn't so keen. Max/MSP/Jitter is much more
powerful in my opinion, plus I can get an educational 9 month licence
(being a student) for about $79 which will tide me over for this
I'll investigate vvvv I think but my experience of java programs and
programming is that it is very slow to respond in many ways. I can't
imagine it being that powerful tbh.
Thanks for the advice,

I thought PD had a mac version... Linux is out there. even included with
agnula project red hat or debian system builds with PD ( and jMax) out
