calf: a audio plugin library
NAMEcalf - a audio plugin library
SYNOPSIScalfjackhost plugin ! [
How to use Calf plugins:
* LADSPA plugins
Calf is installed as calf.so library in your LADSPA directory (typically /usr/lib/ladspa). It means that typical LADSPA host should be able to find Calf's plugins.
* DSSI plugins
The calf.so module is also installed in your DSSI plugin directory, which means your DSSI host (like jack-dssi-host or rosegarden) should find it and include its plugins in the plugin list.
* JACK client application
You can also use Calf plugins as one or more separate applications, connecting to other applications using JACK Audio Connection Kit (version 0.103 or newer is required). To run the client, type:
calfjackhost monosynth !
(! means "connect", last "!" means "connect to output")
calfjackhost monosynth ! vintagedelay ! flanger !
(runs monosynth into vintagedelay and vintagedelay into flanger, then to output)
calfjackhost ! reverb !
(takes signal from system:capture_1 and _2, puts it through reverb, and then sends to system:playback_1 and _2)
ENVIRONMENTLADSPA_PATH Path to LADSPA plugins.
BUGSLV2 support is in infant stage. Some knobs may still cause clicks/zipper noise. Plugin versions (especially LADSPA) have very poor usability comparing to standalone versions, because of platform limitations. In case of other bugs, please send bug reports to <wdev [at] foltman.com>, they will be fixed in order of importance.
