#15 Bristol engines as DSSI/LV2 instruments


It would be great having Bristol engines as DSSI/LV2 instruments

    I did take a look at least at DSSI when working on the Jack interface and it never got further than a look. Jack was much more suitable to how bristol functions, DSSI seems a bit more like a plugin architecture which would have required changes to the audio interface, application linking and to the parameter passing methods from the GUI to the engine. It's not something I would rule out however there would be a lot of work involved in doing it. Doesn't DSSI also mandate some things regarding parameters and GUI?

    Perhaps I should try and get hold of the latest docs and have a look through. If the GUI can fit then it may still be interesting.

    Regards, Nick.

    Nick i think that you could evaulte lv2 instead of dssi at http://lv2plug.in/

    At the moment the issue is not really DSSI vs LV2, the main problem is the time it is going to take to do a full migration of the engine over to a new audio handler and probably also another event dispatcher. Not sure when I would be able to move forward with it.

    Sometimes I think I am going round in circules with DSSI/LV2. I ran into this issue before and decided to throw out the option of LV2 support:

    At the moment, to integrate into LV2 a plugin has to use the LV2 graphics interface. In short, at the moment Brighton would not be supported in the environment and as I have no intention of dumping brighton or of implementing another grahpics toolkit, this is out of the question.

    I can review DSSI again perhaps although I do not like the plugin architecture.

    The Zyn LV2 plug in uses ZynSubAddFX original interface? The program seems not to have changed other than being usable as a plug in, it's very good.

    OK. Looks like I have come full circle again then.

    Like, no offence here, but I use bristol with JACK and I can freely route audio from bristol into a wide range of different applications that can talk to each other, I think I'm failing to see *how* having bristol as a dssi/LV2 plug-in would be a good idea, or am I missing something that makes dssi/LV2 amazing!?

    "The Zyn LV2 plug in uses ZynSubAddFX original interface? The program seems

    AFAIK, the bristol audio engine, recieves all of its commands via the Brighton GUI via a tcp link (IIRC), so it's quite different from Zyn.

    But as a suggestion though, perhaps a 'wrapper' of sorts could be created? Like, the DSSI wrapper would send commands to the brighton gui, which in turn would send the commands to bristol? But I suspect that parameter passing would be difficult to integrate?
