Native LV2 port of the famous mdaEPiano VSTi
This is an attempt to port the mdaEPiano VSTi plugin to the LV2 plugin platform. So far it seems to work quite well. It responds to common MIDI events, generates sounds and sounds very much like the original---that is because most of the sound-generating code has been taken from Paul Kellett's source code. I'd like to thank Paul Kellett for his decision to put the plugin's source code under a free license (see LICENSE for more info).
To compile the plugin, just execute the following statement:
make && sudo make install
This will copy the compiled plugin to
NOTE: you will need larsl's
lv2-c++-tools to compile this plugin: http://freecode.com/projects/lv2-c-tools
At the current stage you will need an LV2 host to use the plugin. I'm using
lv2_jack_host during development:
You should now be able to connect your MIDI device to the plugin via JACK. Also don't forget to connect the plugin's stereo output to your system's outputs:
jack_connect system:playback_1 mdaEPiano:left jack_connect system:playback_2 mdaEPiano:right
At least this is what I do on my system. I provide a simple connect script with the code which does these things automatically.
None. Only missing features:
- proper note stealing as in the original
- GUI (I don't need it)
- saving and importing of presets (should be handled by the host)
The original mda VST plug-ins by Paul Kellett are released under the MIT license or under the GPL "either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version". The LV2 port of the mdaEPiano plugin by rekado is released under the same licenses.
