Add other descriptor libraries to Pipo?

If I understand correctly, it should be possible to add descriptors to pipo~, so then mubu.process can give the values of my “self-made” descriptors. I’m particularly interested in using some of the Marsyas descriptors (such as this one) to organize my database for CataRT
Has anyone attempted something like this? Or does anyone has any advise, where to start and what to be aware of?
Thanks in advance!

Hi Nico, that’s what the pipo SDK is for!

In the simplest case, you derive from the PiPo class and specialize the streamAttributes() and frames() method. There is an example xcode project for wrapping this into a Max .mxo pipo module to be used in pipo~.
Don’t hesitate to ask here if you run into problems.
Cheers!
