287 modules so far.
(from Core + 10 collections)

Sadly there is a lot of stuff out there that is not ready for VCVRack v2, Valley being a very famous one.

Not even Befaco is fully ready, the branch where the new/main plugins live is not yet updated for v2.

Makes me doubtful that VCVRack v2 will be out in the short-term.. If they do release it, it is going to miss a LOT of modules.

Now with audio too!

It is at this point I realize I don't understand these CV concepts at all 馃槀

Anyone can share cool patches that only use open-source plugins?

Donate to @falktx for is massive amount of work in creating and maintaining key foss audio software.

When I discovered kx.studio, it changed my life and many would say the same. Finally I could make proper music with Linux.

When I wanted to make an audio plugin (without any prior programming knowledge) he pointed me to DPF and has helped me several times. So now I create opensource audio software too!

The VCV as plugin saga continues.
Now with plugins being setup for building. Added AudibleInstruments, Befaco and Fundamental so far.

Still need to get the actual engine to work, so it receives audio/midi from host and sends it back as needed.

But if we got so far already, that last piece should be quite doable too.

PS: if you know a must-have opensource VCV plugin, let me know! Shouldnt be too difficult to get more plugins in at this point.

Did you know, if separating the plugin into a different process, the toolkit issues go away?

1. Add "Run in bridge mode" option
2. ???
3. Profit!

The secret sauce is Carla, as usual 馃槉
But you won't even notice it is there.

The generic plugin view looks ok enough, making the gui-less plugins usable too.
Now it is just deciding if this is good enough as-is, or if something critical is missing before a release..
(not counting with final polishing/fixing of course, just the feature-set)

Tempted to just go with it as-is, if I wait for things to be perfect we are going to be here a very long time... 馃

Just doing a test for the mini-plugin host thingy, this upload has audio, right?
The main plugin controls remain at the top now where they belong.

We just watched Sisters With Transistors and it was brilliant.

Documentary on some of the early electronic music pioneers - I knew Delia Derbyshire and Wendy Carlos already but got introduced to some amazing others.

Please, don't panic: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been published on October 12, 1979.

Bless be Carla, may many be its bridges and engine modularity.

Now that I know this works well - lv2 plugin host in another plugin - can use it for testing and fun stuff.

Need to think of the best workflow for such a tool, but cool that it is even possible.
Grab it at github.com/DISTRHO/Ildaeil if you want, dont forget to clone with submodules. No prebuilt binaries at this point, sorry, too early for that still.

Have a great day :)

Let's start a poll: Yes or No.
Sadly I can't seem to upload files if doing a poll, so will just assume "Yes" based on stars or something... :P

There is no audio, but I can guarantee it works.
Just picking a plugin and it loads (embed gui testing here, a generic gui would be used if the gui cant be embed)

Just wondering how much interest there is on this one...

Continuing VCV plugin saga..
Seems like multiple UI instances won't be a problem!

VCV as plugin initial tests have been a success so far.
Was afraid that maybe the way it relies so much on GLFW would not make it possible to embed its GUI.. making a subpar experience IMO.
But that is not the case!

The hard part for the UI is sorted out, now need to cleanup all the hacking around and make sure it can handle multiple instances...

So far so good though.

Time for your corporate workplace team-building exercises! :)

*forms union*

No, not like that!

Anyone wants to work together on a free plugin version of VCVRack?
Would be based on DPF, so we get LV2, VST2 and VST3 versions.

I can handle the build setup, but will need help from those knowledgeable of VCV in general, specially for dealing with module development.

If you are interested (and can offer something to help) please leave a comment on github.com/DISTRHO/CVCRack/iss
