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 πŸ˜‚

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

@nurinoas often when I get asked that the answer is "Yes".

It is at the top of planet.linuxaudio.org/ at the moment πŸ˜‰

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.

@rghvdberg That seems to be a common occurrence. Maybe the cats are trying to tell you something... πŸ€”

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 😊
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... πŸ€”

@tinfoilhat It is just something I am experimenting with.
Clone and build from github.com/DISTRHO/Ildaeil not forgetting git submodules.

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.
