New in version 0.2.33 : 

New radio buttons to save or discard unsaved changes :
Save, discard or prompt for unsaved programs changes

And in the config dialog for the Project and Setup files :
Save, discard or prompt for unsaved changes

The "Midi to parameter" tool is not limited to CC anymore :
Midi to parameters, extended

One parking area per programmable panel :
No more programs conflicts : a plugin loaded in a panel can't be used in another one

And stuffs...

Limit and scale

We can now limit and scale the parameters values, as experimented in this video :

I called it "Musique Concrète au coin du feu rouge" or, no... maybe "Concrete Jingle Bells" and one day I will be pleased to remember even this

Vst plugin as a host, vst host as a plugin ...

VstBoard v0.2.6 uploaded, so what's up lately :

As a plugin :
  •  it can exchange (basic) midi messages with the host (no sysex, no timestamps, no filter... nothing)
  • automation is now supported (well... kind of. don't ask for user friendliness ^^)
  • any number of audio inputs and outputs
On the 'host' side :
  • smoother program transitions, especially for delays and reverbs plugins
  • less cpu usage : unused plugins are not rendered 
And the whole thing is more stable. Next : the rest...

VstBoard as a plugin : first build

This is the very beginning and it's buggy as hell... But now, tadaa.., VstBoard is a VST plugin ! Some screenshots of the first not-immediately-crashing build :
VstBoard as a plugin in Ableton Live
Of course, it can host itself... recursively
The installer just puts the VstBoardPlugin.dll in the installation directory, you'll have to copy it in your VstPlugin directory to try it, needless to say, at your own risk.
There's no MIDI support yet, no automation and just two inputs and two outputs : to be continued...

Right to the point

VstBoard is an experimental project, its main purpose is to easily create "programs" (sounds) and switch between them in real time via midi. The basic idea is to use it as a guitar multi-fx. Here is a short video, demonstrating the ugly interface and the choppy sound :


You can find the windows installer and the source code on sourceforge here :

I'm not that kind

No, i will not blog my life at your face, i'm not that kind and my English is way too bad anyway. This blog is supposed to talk about my project, VstBoard (ok, I admit, that name is not the best example of the wonderful capabilities of the human brain, but it's my brain and it was not trained to come up with good names anyway)
