What tools are you missing

Post by khz »

whats the one plugin that the linux community is really missing? transient shaper? deesser? aural exciter? any thoughts? I'm considering taking on LV2 development but I'd like to fill a need.
/me synths
Filterbox
a tool like Reason (never use it) "virtual studio rack with all the tools and instruments you need to turn your ideas into music"

Your wish list pls.

Yes!
* mastering suite
* linuxsampler lv2
In my windows time I had a "choir ensemble"-plug in. One voice in, 20 .. 40 out. Wish that would be available in ladspa or lv2

My suggestion is a nice lv2 signal analyzer. I would shoot for something like VoxengoSPAN (which runs great with fst or dssi_vst, by the way). At present there are a number of excellent standalone signal analyzers, but in lv2 there is only invada_meter which is good, but not a nice as VoxengoSPAN.

The main Yoshimi maintainer died some time ago. This is one of the world-class linux
instruments. There are some known bugs, and great possibilities for new features, and
improved system integration. Updates would be appreciated and used by many musicians.

Is that true. I didn't know.

By the way, I'm missing a LV2 Pitch-Shifter

Did you check these ones?
LV2fil (four bands).
linuxdsp MKII GRAPH-EQ (10 bands, commercial but inexpensive).

I think the calf-equalizers are OK. Don't you think so?

I use lv2fil. It fits my needs. Guitar and voice is what I record in ardour. Sometimes something more but I don't need a superb and flashy EQ.

I haven't checked the calf plugins lately.

Cheers! Pablo

I love the calf plugins. I compared the reverb to my favorite vst reverbs, and calf held it's own.
Each has their flavor, but calf seemed more pristine, and less likely to color a mix or track.
There are times when such color is desired.

TAL reverbs are LV2 now, and often a first choice for me.

I second the earlier mention of a great gui for linuxsampler being of great need, it would
help many linux musicians use the best quality samples in their productions.

Did you guys try Jamin (http://jamin.sourceforge.net/en/about.html)? It's an excellent mastering suite, imo.

Reverb: IR (http://factorial.hu/plugins/lv2/ir) is a convolution reverb, you just need to grab some good impulse response samples somewhere (like here: http://www.samplicity.com/). You can use it to emulate a guitar cabinet, too.

A synth with tempo-sync'd LFOs is on my wish list.
