Re: Percussion Synthesizer

Hello Iurie, sorry for the bump, I actually wanted to come back on this thread to compliment you for the quality of geokick's code, it's very readable C++! Hi! Thank you! I wish I could have time for commenting more the code. I tried to comment at least some sensible points. If you know Qt, that th...

Re: [Proposal] LV2 for VST2 developers guide

Most synths are either VST only or support both VST and LV2. But there are a lot of excellent effects, which are LV2 only. But does that really matter? We have Carla, so you can use LV2 in a VST-only host and vice-versa. And, as I said above, developers can easily choose to support both formats. Ca...

Re: [Proposal] LV2 for VST2 developers guide

Hey, I just wanna say this, I would select lv2 support only if all host supported it. Renoise for example don't have lv2. I would love to use lv2 format only but host don't support it. We can't just make lv2 plugins if there is no hosts that runs it. I think the way is to make hosts support it firs...

Re: [Proposal] LV2 for VST2 developers guide

What's your opinion about DPF , which allows a single project to be built as both LV2 and VST2? When I was getting ready to develop Dragonfly Reverb, I investigated Juce, DPF, and maybe some other frameworks that I've forgotten. I gave up on Juce when I was following the instructions and found that...

[Proposal] LV2 for VST2 developers guide

Recently I've been around asking developers to move away from VST2, because it's proprietary, discontinued and redistributing its SDK gets projects DMCA'ed (rightly so, the problem was using proprietary code in the first place). Initially I promoted VST3 because it's released under the GPLv3, howeve...

Re: Software and tools to better understand and appreciate music?

Hello, suppose you have discovered a new musical piece, and it turns out you like it. I am looking for software that can help to answer the question: What makes this music good? Besides pure listening (learning to analyze it by ear or just brute force listening to it many times) what software do yo...

For example, JUCE also has it's own implementation of VST headers.


Got it, thanks!

Re: LSP Project

Hey sadko4u, first thanks for these awesome plugins. I am a hobbyist programmer and I know a bit about LV2 development, but zero about VST development. I've noticed that LSP does not require downloading the proprietary VST2 SDK by Steinberg like most libre VST plugins I know, and all the VST-related...

Re: Free/open source VST3 hosts

Re: Free/open source VST3 hosts

VST3 might be GPL (and GPLv3 at that, not GPLv2+ as a few projects are), but it is nonetheless a format driven by a market with the need to sell stuff as fast as possible. It is not a community project, a company dictates what is on it, which features get worked on and what gets priority. And being...

Free/open source VST3 hosts

Hello, how many libre and reliable VST3 hosts are out there? I only know about Carla , and it doesn't seem that any of the major free DAWS (Ardour, LMMS, MusE, Qtractor) support it, while some of them do support VST2. VST3 is GPLv3 and VST2 is deprecated, it'd be a huge step up for GNU/Linux if VST3...
