I have no idea what the hell you're saying with your entire post, but this specific part I have to correct.
macOS with its Obj-C Cocoa APIs could not be more different than Linux with X11/Wayland and Qt/Gtk "native" toolkits.

You're just huffing and puffing, because I'm not a foss homer. Wine runs under the linux kernel,
and also under the osx kernel, (again, dangerously close to being
kissing cousins) osx kernel was derived from bsd, and I never hinted that there are major similarities
between all the extras slapped on top of the various kernels, and how they are implemented. RIP apple mice


I am not doing any sort of personal thing here, I was correcting something that you wrote which i found incorrect.

You mentioned porting applications from Mac to Linux, that it would be simple since as you say they're "dangerously close to being
kissing cousin". But this is not true at all!
Yes, the kernel is mostly the same, but audio applications do not run on the kernel.
They run on the high-level stuff that is created on top.
So for this reason, porting applications from macOS to Linux is a seriously difficult task. If you don't create your application or plugin with cross-platform in mind from the start, the porting gets very tricky (no global/system event loop is often the first hurdle that devs face).

If you use C++ or C with mingw, then porting from Windows to Linux is a *lot* easier than porting from macOS.

Porting the DSP code from a plugin is the easy part, regarding macOS -> BSD or Linux.
We can get the same compiler and libc most of the time. So stuff that does not need a GUI can be ported really fast (compared to GUI).
Even though the DSP side takes a lot of effort and time to make, on the entirety of a plugin code it is only a small part. Most of the code that goes into a plugin is for handling GUI, events, user input and stuff like that. This is the part that makes macOS different from all other OSes, and what makes the porting often very difficult.

Hi,

Buyer beware and pay attention!

A side note is it seems you have to pick USD or Euros to see the discounted price, when I clicked the 'Buy' button in my own (Canadian) currency the discount was not reflected, selecting USD did show the discount...

For any Canadians reading $300 USD is roughly $385 CDN at the exchange rate as of this writing... still a very large number unfortunately... I balked at the last minute and cancelled, I would have went for $300 CDN but a bad time of year for expenses as superfluous as yet another DAW... :roll:

Maybe you'll cross paths with someone who needs a nice midi controller
like the Nektar, and haggle down to a good deal for both of you?
Or even create a raffle for just the keyboard, which would be a fun way
to support AVLinux

How about if 10 to 15 people here give $10 each to help ? Can you do that ? Is it too much to ask ? I certainly do not have much but I can give $10.

Cheers.

Have you considered asking them for a NFR?

After all you do contribute to the community and might need to test it more than superficially to make sure it runs well on your distro.

Hi,

Whoa whoa whoa!, such kind gestures are VERY much appreciated, but my intention was not to ask for charity... :oops:

I merely meant for an 'EDM-curious' blues picker, the price is a bit beyond my threshold of reasonable expenditure :D

@Jack Winter,

I did reach out to BitWig about that and never heard back, in the past Renoise and currently Harrison have been very kind and generous to provide me with NFR versions for testing with AVL.

In general I feel slightly ashamed asking for NFRs, but I do ask sometimes. From some I've never heard back, and from others I've gotten nearly the entire catalogue. I asked one of the really big firms once and got no reply, so I forgot about it. About a year later they got in contact and I got their second biggest bundle :)

He he this was not about charity but rather about the spirit of giving which may still be present here and there in some corners in these days, in this season.

Cheers.
