|Here are some Pure Data resources that are great for the beginner (or anybody, for that matter):|
puredata.info is huge and I've only scratched the surface of the amazing stuff there.
obiwannabe.co.uk, by Andy Farnell, is where I've acquired the majority of my Pd knowledge. Great tutorials on making music and sound effects in Pd.
puredata.hurleur.com is an excellent forum. You should probably also sign up for the Pd mailing lists. Also check out this page for links to forums in Spanish, French, and Italian.
flossmanuals.net has some tutorials as well.
