What is nSLAM?

nSLAM is an open-source audio suite for multi-channel audio application
development developed by the SAT Audio Group. It is written for the PD
(Pure Data by M. Puckette) environment and includes a library of
low-level DSP objects called – xjimmies – (most of which has been also
ported to Max/MSP) online help and example applications for
multi-channel audio streaming and immersive audio among others.

The – xjimmies – library included with nSLAM v2.0 offers new
functionality not defined in the original – jimmies – (IRCAM 1994) running
under Max/MSP. Specifically a number of new objects have been added
for working with multichannel sound sound source simulation and
immersive audio. The name of the library formerly – jimmies – was
changed to – xjimmies – since the – X – -platform library runs in both PD
(Windows/OS-X/Linux) and now in Max/MSP (Windows/OS-X).

nSLAM includes some example applications for didactic and practical
purposes the applications can be easily cannibalized by users looking
for spare parts or wishing to develop their own custom applications.
Applications for multi-channel streaming and sound processing are offered.
