I used it in Qtractor. Hexter works fine, so there is a mature alternative to it. However, Dexed looks promising.

Great work F!

The new obxd build works fine under Tracktion 5 - yeah!

It may not have as many knobs n' options as Aspect but it is a good sounding synth, as proved in its KVR OSC:

dexed still crashes T5 but that's TSC's fault.

Thanks falkTX!

Obxd runs fine in my Qtractor and sounds good. I can't compare it to an original OBX because I never had one.

Dexed lv2 crashes when loading patches or selecting cartdridges.
It was a suil-problem. Upgrading suil helped.

With current Carla-git, I noticed 2 troubles with distrho:
1) on one of my laptops, DSSI versions won't show the GUI. on my other laptop the GUI shows fine. yet on the first laptop, other DSSI plugins work fine (calf for example). console output from the first laptop:

Code: Select all

Using "carla" theme
Carla 1.9.4 (2.0-beta2) started, status:
  Python version: 3.4.0
  Qt version:     4.8.6
  PyQt version:   4.10.4
  Binary dir:     /usr/lib/carla
  Resources dir:  /usr/share/carla/resources
QColor::setRgb: RGB parameters out of range
QColor::setRgb: RGB parameters out of range
libjack.so.0 loaded sucessfully!
starting app..
CarlaPlugin::waitForOscGuiShow()
oscServerPath:  "osc.udp://lenovo:12587/"
pluginPath:     "osc.udp://lenovo:12587/Carla/0"
oscPathControl: "/Carla/0/control"
CarlaPlugin::updateOscData(0x30e0840, "osc.udp://lenovo:12587/Carla/0")
CarlaPlugin::updateOscData() - source: host "127.0.0.1", port "12587"
CarlaPlugin::updateOscData() - target: host "lenovo", port "12587", path "/Carla/0"
CarlaPlugin::updateOscData() - done
CarlaPlugin::waitForOscGuiShow() - got response, asking UI to show itself now
CarlaPluginThread::run() - UI closed cleanly
app finished
Not sure what could be the reason... Different video cards? First one is an old Lenovo laptop with core2duo and integrated ultra-low-end intel graphics (running on open-source driver). Second one is a newer "intel pentium" (whatever that means) and has nvidia graphics in it (running on proprietary driver). Other DSSI plugins work fine on the first laptop. What's even more intriguing is that with the lv2 version, the GUI shows fine on them both. But

2) LV2 version's GUI does not reflect the correct plugin state. Like if you load the plugin, make some changes to the default state, then close GUI and reopen it, GUI will show the default state again, which is wrong, as can be seen on the "generic" GUI. Other LV2 plugins state is reflected correctly every time.

I know mverb had a small issue with the knobs which I fixed.
All of them have this issue, on both of my laptops.

Console output for launching Carla, adding the LV2 version of the 3-band EQ, moving some faders, closing the UI, opening&closing the UI again, quitting Carla:

The faders and knobs in the GUI do move, and do set their value correctly, but if you close the GUI and open it again, it will show the default state again, instead of reflecting the actual values.

I'll fix these issues soon.

with this, mverb knobs fixed, energyXT issues resolved and updated dexed I think DISTRHO will deserve a new release again.
Actually also in VST version, the GUI won't show when UI bridge is enabled. Says "GUI timeout" in console (after 6 seconds of waiting). Shows fine with UI bridge disabled.
Also seems like in GUI versions of the EQ and the Splitter, the fader action is inverted? Or is this intentional? For instance, taking the "mixer" fader down is supposed to make it louder?
