This is fixed in the latest release: Dragonfly Reverb 1.1.2

For anybody following along, I think that the plugin has finally stabilized in terms of features; It doesn't really need any more dials. I will continue to address bug reports, but you can consider the plugin ready to use without having to worry about future releases breaking backward compatibility.

In fact, projects using v1.0.0 can update to the latest without breaking backward compatibility; the new "decay time" dial is programmed to have a reasonable setting for projects that were using any version of Dragonfly back to v1.0.0.

I finally started playing around with Dragonfly. It's very nice and I look forward to putting it to work. Congrats and thank you for all your efforts Michael!

Good stuff, let me know how it goes! I'd love to hear the music you make with it.

I made a "git pull". I can't build it anymore:

Code: Select all

hm@regen:~/src/dragonfly/2018-12-15$ make
Makefile:7: dpf/Makefile.base.mk: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `dpf/Makefile.base.mk'.  Stop.

There were some significant changes to the structure of the makefiles a few months back when updating to a newer version of Distrho Plugin Framework. Try `make clean` and then `make`. If that doesn't work, Try cloning the project anew and then `make` will hopefully work.

Cloning it again helped. Thanks. Will now play around with it.

WOW! That's a Reverb Plugin of the finest quality. Kudos for the presets! It works great for thickening drums due to the fact that early and late reflections can be levelled separately.

I noticed a slight bug: The window with the diagram is sometimes just plain white, although the reverb works perfectly, at least the LV2 version in my Qtractors.

Oh no! I thought I fixed that... I haven't seen it on Ardour for the last couple of versions. Blah...

Take all the time you need to fix it without changing anything else :)

Backward compatibility is important since I'll use it for my recent song. I like the reverbs even more than my collections of impulse responses for Klangfalter.

Ardour? Qtractor.

I meant that I had seen this bug while using Ardour, and now I don't.

I opened my song with the LV2 plugin three times in Qtractor and the part of the window was always white.
Then I started the standalone version. Display was ok.
Since then opening the song in Qtractor and openingthe GUI was ok.

Does it write something into the filesystem?

No, all state is controlled by the plug-in host (the daw). To render the spectrogram, it has a separate instance of the reverb algorithm. It simulates a burst of white noise and then runs the algorithm through its course, collecting the frequency response with a few transform algorithm.

I think the problem is that sometimes the separate instance of the reverb algorithm doesn't get initialized properly, and ends up having garbage output that is shown as a solid white spectrogram.

Try creating a new qtractor project. My guess is that you will see the bug again when you open dragonfly reverb for the first time in the new project. Something happens asking working on the project, saving state, and reloading that makes it work again.

I had this bug also in REAPER, but sometimes it's gone, sometimes not. The width of the solid white area can also change.

Opened Qtractor, loaded Dragonfly into the Master out, UI is displayed properly :-/
