SynthDef code throws an error message due to incomplete line 3. Line 3: wrong envelope spec, should be Env.perc Line 5: should be freq * LFNoise2.kr, not just LFNoise2.kr

Line 3: Env.perc should be there, not a Pulse.kr

Line 3: missing semicolon at end

Line 5: missing freq * before LFNoise2. The result is that your frequencies are all between 0.988 and 1.011, which are not audible.

Line 6: Env.perc is correct, but you should have put it in the variable env on line 3.

// Code does not works as expected (no errors, and it makes sound)

// SynthDef argument freq is not used at all in the body of the SynthDef.

// Variable env is not used correctly to organize code

// UGen Pulse.kr does not belong, and freq input of Pulse is incomplete.

// As a result, example Pbind does not work.
