What is an organelle? It is almost anything you want to have. Just change the preset and you have a sampler, an effects unit, a synth, a looper or somekind of recording- hack-loop- restyle- unit. I will get the new organelle, soon. Midi, microphone and a built in speaker !!
Making your own patches for the Organelle in puredata is unrealistic for a large part of their users. It's not impossible, but its just not realistic. It's advertised as an easy to learn thing, but is it not. Being restricted to pre-made patches kinda sucks when I paid $750 for this but whatever I guess.
It can still do a lot, but the advertising is a bit manipulative.
