We are pleased to announce the release of odot version 1.3, which can now be downloaded directly through the Max Package Manager.

In addition to numerous enhancements, improvements, and bug fixes, this release contains a 12-part tutorial that covers many of the most important aspects of odot programming. This tutorial, based on years of experience using odot in practice and pedagogy, is a great entry point for new users, as well as an invaluable reference for paradigmatic solutions to common problems in media/arts programming.


The odot developers community is also happy to announce that the odot version 1.3  release includes an alpha version for Pure Data (Pd). There is still much work to be done on the Pd version, but if you’re looking to run odot on a Raspberry Pi or similar device, look no further.

Download the alpha version of odot for Pure Data here: https://github.com/CNMAT/CNMAT-odot/releases/tag/1.3.0


Stay in touch! We’ve started a Discord server for all things odot: https://discord.gg/EqHE8TG.


For issues, bugs, suggestions, etc. we use the GitHub Issue Tracker: https://github.com/CNMAT/CNMAT-odot/issues.


We hope to launch a website for hosting announcements and documentation in the coming months.


This odot version 1.3 release was enabled with the generous support of the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies where odot began back in 2007.
