faust-lv2 is an LV2 architecture for the Faust programming language
(http://faust.grame.fr/), which lets you compile Faust programs to LV2
plugins ready to be used with any LV2 host. It supports both effect
(audio->audio) and instrument (midi->audio) plugins. The package
includes the Faust LV2 architecture files, a few Faust examples, and
generic waf scripts for building and installing the sample plugins.
faust-lv2 can be downloaded from its project website at
http://faust-lv2.googlecode.com. Here's the direct download link to the
source tarball: http://faust-lv2.googlecode.com/files/faust-lv2-0.1.tar.bz2
Documentation is available in the package (README file) and on the
This includes detailed installation and usage instructions.
faust-lv2 0.1 is the initial release which has been tested on x86_64
Linux with jalv, Ardour3 and Qtractor, using lilv as the LV2 host
library. You'll also need fairly recent versions of Faust (0.9.46 or
later should do) and the LV2 framework (available at http://lv2plug.in/).
Other LV2 hosts should work as well. Unfortunately, that doesn't include
zynjacku/lv2rack right now, apparently because of some bugs or
incompatibilities with the latest LV2 release. Nedko, maybe you could
check https://gna.org/bugs/?19282 some time, thanks. :)

I'm glad to announce the release of NASPRO 0.4.0.
NASPRO (http://naspro.atheme.org/) is meant to be a cross-platform
sound processing software architecture built around the LV2 plugin
The goal of the project is to develop a series of tools to make it
easy and convenient to use LV2 for sound processing on any (relevant)
platform and for everybody: end users, host developers, plugin
developers, distributors and scientists/researchers.
This release is a huge one! The main news are the introduction of the
ino and gino libraries and of the FreeADSP application, the addition
of threading and unnamed semaphore APIs to NASPRO core, as well as
some API breakage there w.r.t. UTF-16 string encoding/decoding, some
fixing of preset data generation in NASPRO Bridge it and various
cosmetic changes here and there. You can find detailed ChangeLogs in
- NASPRO core: the portable runtime library at the bottom of the architecture;
- NASPRO Bridge it: a little helper library to develop
insert-your-API-here to LV2 bridges;
- NASPRO bridges: a collection of bridges to LV2 which, once
installed, allow you to use plugins developed for other plugin
standards in LV2 hosts;
- LV2proc: a simple command line effect processor using LV2 plugins;
- gino and gino/WebKitGTK+: minimalist C API to create GUIs using
- FreeADSP: MIDI-controlled real-time stereo effect rack using LV2 plugins.
In particular, the NASPRO bridges collection includes two bridges: a
LADSPA (http://www.ladspa.org/) 1.1 and a DSSI
(http://dssi.sourceforge.net/) 1.0.0/1.1.0 bridge.
*BEWARE*: most of the new stuff is in early stages of development!
NASPRO core, NASPRO Bridge it and NASPRO bridges are released under
the LGPL 2.1, LV2proc and FreeADSP are released under the GPL 3, ino,
I'm pleased to announce the 1.1 release of xwax -- DJ software for Linux.
On the surface this is a minor update, since v1.0:
* Bug fix: incorrect display of track time remaining
* Instant loading of duplicate tracks
* Optionally protect decks during playback
* Improvements to music selector
* Increase speed building look-up tables
xwax is open-source vinyl emulation software for Linux. It allows DJs and
turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC
and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded
It's designed for both beat mixing and scratch mixing. Needle drops, pitch
changes, scratching, spinbacks and rewinds are all supported, and feel
just like the audio is pressed onto the vinyl itself.
The focus is on an accurate vinyl feel which is efficient, stable and
Indamixx - Donate to my moms dementia cure campaign and get Indamixx Pro
I just found a new procedure on 60 Minutes on how a shot can clear up
demntia for my mom.
A $25.00 donation receives a free digital download copy of Indamixx Pro
(value $199.00) includes full version of energy XT.
I created a special Linux Friends 'perks' section for all in the Linux
community who have been wonderful to me and my mom.
I will email you a free download code to receive your 'perk'.
This is really important to me and please spread the word that their is a
cure albeit a bit pricey at the moment.

Here it is, a new QMidiArp version has arrived! The main new features are JACK MIDI,
which is the default backend now, JACK Session support, and a new in-sequence loop
marker that can be used to bounce the play direction or to loop at a mouse-clicked
position in the sequence. Note that you can still get the alsa backend by starting with
qmidiarp -a .
The full list of noticeable changes is below.
Thanks again to all having reported ideas and bugs and given their support.
Masters of the step sequencer, Enjoy!
