A plugin that loads and controls Pure Data patches.
Camomile is a plugin with Pure Data embedded that offers to load and to control patches inside a digital audio workstation. The plugin is available as VST, VST3, LV2 and Audio Unit for Windows, Linux and MacOS. Downloads, documentation and further information are available on the wiki pages of the project.
As for the examples given within the distribution, most of the time plugins created with Camomile must be generated. Generating plugins does not require any development skill and is pretty easy and straightforward if your read carefully the documentation. This operation requires only 6 basic actions (copy/past/rename) and, since the version 1.0.6, a script is offered for Linux and MacOS to speed up the workflow.
To use the plugins, just copy the packages/folders in the audio plugins' location. If you are not familiar with plugins and/or the digital audio workstations, please read this documentation.
At last, this part of the documentation presents how to create new plugins with Camomile.
Download Camomile and its dependencies using git:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/pierreguillot/Camomile.git
Generate the libpd project using CMake and compile the libpd library and the plugins:
cd Camomile cd Dependencies/LibPdBuild/LinuxMakefile && cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release && cd ../../.. make
Important: JUCE requires a set of pre-installed libraries: libx11-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libfreetype6-dev alsa libasound2-dev. Before building Camomile you can run to install everything:
sudo apt-get -qq update sudo apt-get install -y libx11-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libfreetype6-dev alsa libasound2-dev
cd Camomile cd Dependencies/LibPdBuild/MacOSX && cmake .. -GXcode && cd ../../.. xcodebuild -workspace Camomile.xcworkspace -scheme Camomile-libpd -configuration Release
Important: libpd requires the static pthread library for windows with multithread static runtime library (MT).
