Festige, a gui for fst

Postby funkmuscle » Sun Jan 10, 2010 4:36 pm

http://festige.sourceforge.net/
from their website:
FeSTige is a GUI for fst,
a program by which uses Wine, Jack and Steinberg's VST Audio Plug-Ins SDK
to enable the use of many VST audio plugins under Gnu/Linux.
You can see a screenshot by clicking here


# FeSTige is in it's very early days, so only the basic funcionality is present: Search for *.dlls in known locations
[VST_PATH, /usr/lib/vst, ~/.wine/Program Files/VstPlugins, etc)]
# Add an extra PATH to the search list
# Load a specific *.dll

I retrieved the tarball and have installed the software on my 32-bit Jaunty system. If I start a plugin from File/Load VST it works, but if I select a plugin from the list and click Start VST I receive this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/festige/gui/festige.pyw", line 155, in func_StartVST
os.system("fst \""+self.listPath[self.DllToLoad+"\" &")
Index error: list index out of range

Any suggestions ?

Cool utility, btw. Very handy.

Also btw: I see that you hang out on the Kdenlive forums too. Are you doing any video work ?

Best,

dp

Did you use the PulseAudio/JACK solution ?

I'll need more info to fix that festige error. Do you know how to use IRC?


Sure, where/when do you want to meet ?

just did a sys upgrade, only these 3 packages:
cdrdao-1.2.3-1
cdrkit-1.1.10-1
gtk-1.2.10-10

now I get this:

$ festige

Where is it installed ?

I run it from /usr/share/festige/festige in Jaunty, no errors.

I know, I was the first to report on here that it runs well but after I updated my system, it failed.
these are the apps that were upgraded:
cdrdao-1.2.3
cdrkit-1.1.10
gtk-1.2.10-10

fixed. I'm not using Deb, I use Arch. I was launching it from it's directory yesterday. I looked at festige.install and copied the files to the proper directories and it now launches from desktop.

Thanx guys

yeah there is but for me, just opening up the package and placing things in the right location helps me learn how these apps work.

How did I miss this? :shock:

I have a couple of Steinberg vst's. So this will run them? I'll hae to check it out and see. Thanks for going to so much trouble to put this together Falk. I have Debian/Linux Mint 7 running an RT Kernel which seems to be working now.

Great stuff, just gotta try it, thanks again. :mrgreen:

You need this software:

http://www.joebutton.co.uk/fst/

Build it, then place the fst and fst.exe.so binaries in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. At that point the fst binary should be recognized by Festige.

Best,
