Well, for this I wouldn't really bother with porting Pd to a platform
rather uncomforable to it. ;)
You can use a whole bunch of input methods in Pd: Midi, score
following with the fiddle~ external (play on your theremin and feed
the audio into Pd, fiddle~ converts it to frequency values), USB over
the event interface on Linux, parallel port, serial port input,
joystick, probably many more. Pd is quite a happy to speak with
