Psym use a pattern of symbols to embed Pdefs

Psym(pattern)

pattern: a pattern that returns symbols or characters. Arrays are converted to parallel patterns (Ppar).


dict_(a dictionary)

set the dictionary to be used





// example:


(

// load a synthdef

s.boot;

SynthDef("gpdef", 

{ arg out=0, freq=440, sustain=0.05, amp=0.1, pan;

var env;

env = EnvGen.kr(Env.perc(0.01, sustain), doneAction:2) * amp;

Out.ar(out, Pan2.ar(SinOsc.ar(freq, 0, env), pan))

}).store;

)

Pdef(\y, Pchain(Pbind(\degree, Prand([5, 9, 0], inf), \legato, Pseq([0.3, 2.2], inf)), Pdef(\x)));

// change root pattern:

Pdef(\x, Pbind(\dur, Pn(0.125, 2), \instrument, \gpdef)); 

Pdef(\x, Pbind(\dur, Pn(0.125, 3), \instrument, \gpdef, \ctranspose, 2)); 

Pdef(\x, Pbind(\dur, Pn(0.125, 2), \instrument, \gpdef, \ctranspose, 0)); 


// change sequence:

Pdef(\play, Psym(Prand([Pseq([\x, \y], 5), Pseq([\z, \y], 5)], inf).trace)).play;


// use a sequence of characters:

Pdef(\play, Psym(Pseq("xxyxxzz", inf).trace)).play;


// play in parallel:

(

Pdef(\play, Psym(

Prand([

Pseq([[\x, \y], \z], 5), 

Pseq([[\z, \y], \x, \x, \y])

]

, inf).trace)
