Two bits of news:
We've got a new OwlProgram release v21.1, incorporating all the recent changes and new features.
Summary of v21.1 changes:
- SOUL integration
- Maximilian integration
- DaisySP integration
- Added FAUST 'key' MIDI parameter (complements 'freq', 'gain', 'gate' and 'bend')
- Added StateVariableFilter DSP class
- Fixed Bus Error regression on legacy hardware
- Automatically zero-initialise all heap allocations
Second: I've updated the 'develop' branch with some new features which makes it easier to test and debug patches for those of you that do so offline.
There are some new Makefile targets, and others that have changed:
make run used to compile and send a patch to run from RAM on the device. This has been renamed: use
make load instead.
make ... native is a new target that will compile your patch into a native executable. Requires
gcc or compatible compiler to be installed.
make run now compiles the native executable and runs it
make test will compile a test harness as a native executable and run it
The native binary can be invoked with a wav input and output filename (input should be 48kHz, 16-bit, 2 channels). This will run the patch, allow it to set default parameter values, then feed the audio from the wav file in and save the results in the same format.
To try it out, clone or checkout the
develop branch of OwlProgram then make your patch as usual, but specify
make ... run instead of
make ... patch.
Note that this doesn't work with SOUL patches yet, but Pure data, FAUST et c should be fine.
A future update will likely allow setting parameter values on the command line, e.g. something like
patch -a 0.5 -b 1 in.wav out.wav
Do let me know if you find this useful, and if you have ideas/feedback for improvements!
