@ Seablade, thanks for reply. Maybe it would be useful to promote an cross platform format, so people can make VSTs for there nice Windows OS, but it will be also easy to make a Linux plugin. For example, there are tons of great free guitar VSTs for Windows…
So I thought maybe the idea of VST plugins with QT interface could be a step in the right direction
"The principle we follow is “design once, generate many”. We are aiming on
building any kind of plugins or audio backends our users want to build using
the CLAM framework.
One of those targets is building VST plugins for Windows (crosscompiled from
linux or natively from windows). The main advantage for linux users is that
they can visually build their plugins or JACK applications in linux with
CLAM, and then, if they want their plugin to be available for Windows users,
just click a button and you’ll have a VST plugin as well.
LV2 is also on our roadmap, and I guess that having already support for Ladspa
it won’t be that difficult. But right now our interests where VST just
because a project partners asked us for some vst’s and, well, it was funny
doing that from linux. We had vst code working for a couple of years but
without GUI, and in order to make this code valuable we had to unlock the GUI
front. That’s what we did.
The good news, if you are interested in AudioUnits, is that one of our
coworkers, Ferran Orriols, already has an assigned time slot to implement
AudioUnits in CLAM, after his eastern exams.
Of course, any help on supporting whatever plugin/backend platform would be
very appreciated as we have a limited number of hands. "
I think it’s great that’s available on Linux too, to have choice and it will maybe a good thing if many people buy it…
But I’m asking myself if it’s really much better then the piano sample of Linuxsampler…
Besides that, for that kind of money I would prefer buying such a thing:
