Xmonk.lv2, aLV2 toy

Post by tramp »

I remember last time on a VST which I found nice to play around with, don't remember the name, but it was a monk which sing when you push and move the mouse.
While I work on the code of my new X11/cairo toolkit, I give this a shoot.
I'm using the SFFormantModelBP from the faust physmodels.lib, and wrap a UI around so that it comes near to what I remember and have a lot of fun while moving the mouse around on it.

Then I adding midi support (modwheel for the vowel), so that it may become a tad more the fun.

HOOOHEEEHAAA, here you go:

Ah, yes, that was it, thanks to a link given on LAU I found it back. :)

and now I know what I've forgotten, the reverb and the delay.
Fixed now.

Edit: and now with microtonal scale support from 12 to 53-TET

As far I know it isn't.
But it's intuitive anyway, just press the mouse button somewhere in the GUI and move the mouse. Up/down is the frequency, left right is the vowel-filter.
Or connect a midi controller to it, then the modwheel will control the vowel.

Got this error when running make (This is just the tail end of the output; I can provide more if needed):

I think "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lffi" is the problem, but I can't figure out how to fix it.

Hi Mlo

In fact we didn't need libffi, but it was introduced by wrongly set the pkg-config flag for cairo.
I've corrected that now and removed that removed this dependency.

It works! And it's pretty sweet. My boys are going to love this! I'll post some audio later.

Thank you for developing this, and for helping me troubleshoot it.

You need to install a library called ffi, try this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libffi-dev

Nope, you don't! As I said, it was mistakenly introduced, and we didn't need it at all.
Reporting such issues helps a lot. So the developer ( in this case it's me) could optimize the build flags.
I didn't see this issue, because I've installed libffi-dev anyway.
So thanks to milo's report I could correct the flags. :!:

Sorry, I didn't see the latest messages when I wrote the suggestion to install the library.

Here's a quick demo I recorded: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bg7rQ6 ... sp=sharing (The drums are Geonkick, the bass is Amsynth.)

This plugin is very fun to use! Thanks again for developing it!
