  • GitHub repo helio-workstation

    One music sequencer for all major platforms, desktop and mobile

    Project mention: how do you notate music pieces | reddit.com/r/musictheory | 2021-09-12

    I love MuseScore and want a decent notation editor for my tablet, but pickings are slim, unfortunately. Most of the editors I find have abhorrent interfaces. I'd even be fine with a LilyPond frontend or something, rather than what I do now (Helio is truly wonderful and ticks my boxes, but can't produce notation).

  • GitHub repo dexed

    DX7 FM multi plaform/multi format plugin

    Project mention: For anyone trying to get the classic Disney Epiano sound. | reddit.com/r/AdvancedProduction | 2021-07-05

    An audio plugin with Pure Data embedded that allows to load and to control patches

    Project mention: A few questions about music production on linux | reddit.com/r/linuxaudio | 2021-05-09

    Camomile - fairly easy way to get Pure Data patches in plugin form; incredible rabbit hole to potentially fall down if you want total control

    but feeling confident this time around, I'm older wiser and I've got amaizingidiot helping me out here (I hope your not reading this like a slant it isn't) I'm truly grateful, never knew about the yabridge so doing some reading up on it,

    Project mention: Two Notes wall of sound plugin? | reddit.com/r/linuxaudio | 2021-04-04

    I have never tried using that plugin on linux, but you could try using the windows version with Airwave, a windows VST to linux VST bridge. Can't guarantee that it will work perfectly, though.

  • GitHub repo DtBlkFx

    Fast-Fourier-Transform (FFT) based VST plug-in

    Project mention: Intro | dev.to | 2021-09-09

    DISTRHO Nekobi is an open source VST that I found that's very interesting. It's modeled after the Roland TB-303, a legendary synth that's instantly recognizable in recordings by the likes of The Prodigy and Aphex Twin and led to the creation of the "acid" genre. It looks like a fairly pared down, straightforward version of the 303 but I know synths are generally more complicated projects as they encompass oscillators which generate the audio signal as well as filters and effects which effect the audio signal. I'm not sure whether it would be a good beginner VST project for this reason, but again I'm looking to really sink my teeth in to a VST project so maybe this would be a good opportunity.
