I know C/Java/Python and I want to make a plug-in for Ableton Live. Is this possible and where to start?

I found some software chain on the Emotiv forums: MindYourOSCs -> PD -> MidiYoke -> Ableton Live
So what is PD?

  • I can't figure out what it is that you're asking.

  • I fixed your image markup, but I'm not sure they add anything to your question. Dec 12, 2012 at 3:12
  • I like the idea of making music with EPOC or other devices and want to share it (easy to understand with images) because SE is great!

  • It just seems like a really spammy way to approach your question. All you are asking is "how do I interface this hardware with Ableton Live, ideally via a plugin." The actual device is secondary to the question, but you give it top billing. Dec 12, 2012 at 3:58
  • From Barcelona, what about emotive epoc and ableton,does it's work?

1 Answer 1


If you want to make a plugin for Ableton, you need to look up VST plugins.

PD is Pure Data, a free modular MIDI and audio processing environment. PD is similar to Max/MSP, which directly integrates into Live via Max4Live.
