The rules only say your entry should be created specifically for the competition, not when :)

Re: [ANN] Open Source Music FM Synthesizer Challenge starts September 15th, 2018

Funky! :)

It looks to me, though, as if you're not using the synth for sound design, but the stack of effects your putting on each instrument. Which is a valid approach, but comes with the cost in resources...

Re: [ANN] Open Source Music FM Synthesizer Challenge starts September 15th, 2018

sampling of the instruments is quite useful, it helps to reduce CPU usage (though I guess FM synths are not the most heavy things...) and it also allows for much easier beat-sequencing. one could create an hydrogen drumkit out of a FM synth, then work from there, Yes, I've done this myself quite of...

Re: [ANN] Open Source Music FM Synthesizer Challenge starts September 15th, 2018

Umm, that's not how I would read the rules (and I wrote them ;)). Freezing and Bouncing to me only applies to whole tracks or sections, not individual sounds. The rules can still be changed and I am am open to suggestions, but I don't really see this restriction on no samples as a big inconvenience....

Well the challenge then would be to create something that doesn't sound like synthwave, 80s elevator music or 90s computer RPGs ;)

Re: Query about the LV2 plugin format

I don't really have a problem with turtle either. The important thing is that there is a standard for describing parameter values and their storage. The situation with VST, where every plugin and host just basically stores a binary blob in their own proprietary format, hinders exchangeability betwee...

Re: Where to start developing Linux music software?

I don't see a simple way of merging the makefile mess of DPF with cmake code. I find the makefiles that DPF uses, quite clear. BTW, a while ago, I wrote a cookiecutter template, with which you can generate a new DPF project by simply answering a few prompts: $ cookiecutter https://github.com/Spotli...

Re: does a tutorial exist on how to write a MIDI VST plugin?

It needs to be VST as it has to be multi-platform and work with all common DAWs. Yes, for example Carla , by the present, illustrious falkTX. Or does some kind of wrapper exist to use a LV2 in VST compatible DAWs? There are also frameworks, which allow you to write the core processing code of a plu...

Re: Need help for packaging noise-repellent

IMHO, if you make it easy for distribution packagers, they will come. That means: - State the URL of the project clearly. - Have the version number of the project in a file in a way that's easy to parse (e.g. a Makefile variable, a file version.h or similar) and keep it up to date . - Have a file ca...
