OSX State-of-Play?

Postby cpsmusic » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:58 am

Hi Folks,

I have a background in music and audio production. I also have some programming experience (C/C++) and technical writing expertise. I work primarily on OS X.

I'm interested in helping out with DrumGizmo development, particularly on OS X, so I'm curious to know where things currently stand.

What are the plans for OS X - i.e. what format will DG be - LV2, VST, what about the GUI?

Out of interest, I had a quick look at the DG source code. Some of the dependencies could be a problem, for example, libsmf, as it requires Glib. I've had some experience with GTK-OSX (Glib is a part of this?) and it's a PITA.

Also, when are developers on IRC?

Cheers,

Chris

Hey

The state of the OSX support is, that we are currently in the process of making it supported on the mac.
None of us are OSX devs, so your help would be very welcome.
I'm usually on irc in the evenings (CET), so please try and catch me there if possible.

Hey Chris

I have a feeling we're living on different sides of the globe (I'm in Denmark).
Perhaps, send me an email instead. Then we can talk there?
You can find my contact information on the website under "The Team".

Cheers // Bent

Hi,

Yes, you're right!

I'm in Melbourne, Australia. I'll contact you via email.

Cheers,

We just managed to get the UI compiling using pugl, and have even gotten a VST compiled in our build enviroment.
Alas we cannot test either, because the VM doesn't supply an opengl context which is needed by pugl.

Any help from community would be of great help.

If you are able to compile drumgizmo from git master as a VST plugin and report back if you can get it to run it would be very helpful to us.

./configure --disable-cli --enable-vst --with-vst-sources=/Path/to/VST3_SDK
Should do the trick.
You need to download the VST sources yourself from the Steinberg website, since we are not allowed to redistribute them through our git repo.
https://www.steinberg.net/en/company/developers.html

You need to rename the "VST SDK" folder so it doesn't contain a space otherwise the build-system will complain.

Think I managed to build it (once I figured out the right path for the sdk). What do I install, aren't linux vsts normally .so files?

i think there is an .so file on OSX as well but I don't know how that stuff usually works.
Did you do "make install"?

No, since it's a vst I just wanted to copy the .so file to ~/.vst.

I think it is located inside the plugin/.libs folder then

Good news, I found the lib in plugins/.libs. It does get detected as a vst2 instrument by reaper for linux, and does display a GUI when opened. Don't have any experience with drumgizmo, but it does look like it works, and will take it for a ride when I have some more time. Think I need to download some more stuff.

sudo make install seems broken though, see this output:

I thought you were compiling for OSX? The linux VST has been supported for a long time and, I think, is even provided in binary by kxstudio.

Haha 8)

I've been so busy for a long time that I haven't had time to play with software... Who knows maybe I already had it downloaded and installed...:) Guess I got confused by such a post on linuxmusicians.com, that and the fact that all the drums I ever mix have been recorded as audio. Sorry for the noise!

No worries :-)

Anybody else up for some OSX VST testing?

Hi!

I went to compiling the Mac Os X version again, as per the instructions in https://drumgizmo.org/wiki/doku.php?id=dev:macosx_building_howto.

It would be nicer if you had noted from what directory each command was to be executed.

For instance, I cloned the drumgizmo git to my home.

Should the zita-resampler be inside drumgizmo directory, or can it be in my home, outside drumgizmo folder?

Where is the best place to put:
- drumgizmo;
- zita-resampler;
- vst_sdk;
- etc.

If I want to let other users run drumgizmo, I think it should be installed in a system-wide way, am I right? Can you help me?
