Hi Ardour lovers,
I have made a couple of small contributions to Ardour in the past.
I wish to address the issue of Ardour not currently being bundled with a
set of basic plugins.
While I am the author of the zam-plugins suite, I don't think it is
appropriate to suggest they be bundled with Ardour directly.
I think the first step is to collect as much input from you folks, the
users of Ardour, so I can most effectively create a small set that
people will actually want to use.
I can (and will make time to) take existing plugins which you like and
rewrite a common set of GUIs so that they all have the same theme, and
suggest that they be bundled with Ardour if they sound good.
May I start by presenting you with a mockup of a delay plugin:
This is my latest creation, and I would like suggestions of what is
missing from the controls to make it a good compromise between
functionality and simplicity. I have on purpose made it a mono plugin
so that it can be as simple as possible without any extra stereo controls.
What I would really like to know is if this plugin were bundled with
Ardour, would most people use it or not? For example, is stereo
ping-pong etc a necessary thing to have in a basic delay?
Perhaps we can discuss the plugin types one at a time in detail to get a
feel for what people need/want.
