Please note that most plugins in the repo are ports and not plugins that I made by myself.
The "original" plugins are currently 3BandEQ/Splitter and PingPongPan.
I already have others in the works, but most of my plugins will be utilities (output jack-midi from host, read audio/midi files and sync to transport, midi 1-to-16 channel splitter, vst2lv2 bridge, etc).
I'm not really a DSP coder, but I know the plugin APIs and how to code for them. Most of the plugins I'll make won't be synths or FX at all, but tools to bridge missing functionality.

That will only depend on the original plugins. I know Capsaicin and Vex don't come with presets, that is sad indeed.
StudioDave wrote:2. Stability for the synths. I'm getting repeated segfaults from them, I'll prepare a real report for you asap.
I know DrumSynth has a few issues, maybe Vex too. I didn't want to try to fix everything and delaying the DISTRHO release anymore. I'll be waiting for your tests here (I'm busy coding right now so I'm not testing them myself
StudioDave wrote:3. Some docs maybe ? Is there documentation for the original plugins ?
check the official webpages for these plugins, basic info here http://distrho.sourceforge.net/ports.php
Documentation is always a tricky business for opensource projects.

Don't forget the Calf suite!
btw, Qtractor and Carla don't implement the same way of presets that jalv and ardour3 do.
I'm current maintain a list of plugins using lv2-programs (my own lv2 extension) here:http://kxstudio.sourceforge.net/ns/lv2ext/programs/
a patch for mda-lv2 is there. Qtractor doesn't yet talk lv2-atoms, but it will show presets for those FX that have them.
