Program VST Plug-Ins in Lisp!

https://github.com/dwu/ClojureVST is a fun prototype that allows to develop VST Plug-ins using a very popular lisp dialect running on the JVM called http://www.clojure.org
Apart from the fun it was to actually write the code, the project has a serious background: Clojure is a functional programming language that features a
rich set of immutable, persistent data structures and supports type hints and type inference. Its character of a dynamic language and its functional syntax and makes it
very efficient to express musical algorithms in very little code.
Similar to the JRuby integration, a Clojure VST plugin reloads instantly when a Clojure file is changed - code changes are audible immediately. Absolutely no compile-package-test cycles are necessary! ... read more

VST-Ruby Integration: Introducing Opaz PlugDK

Hi all, this to announce Opaz PlugDK, a prototype SDK on top of jVSTwRapper
that brings "script-style" plug-in development to VST plugins. The plugin reloads
instantly when a source file is changed -- code changes are audible
immediately. Absolutely no compile-package-test cycles are necessary!

Features are in detail:
* Instant reloading of the plugin algorithm when a file is changed -- code
changes are audible immediately.
* An IRB console that allows you to attach to a running Ruby plug-in, e.g.
to script the plugin live, while it is running (very much like using
Ruby as a macro language for the plug-in).
* The possibility to create GUIs for the plugin - while it is running and
producing audio.
* The VST API is wrapped in a very nice DSL, making the code much cleaner
and understandable (and much, much smaller!).
* It is very easy to mix-and-match Java and Ruby code (either inline Java code,
or via calling static methods)
* A one-command Rake task that generates binaries for Windows, Linux and OSX.... read more

jVSTwRapper v0.9g Released - Audio Unit (AU) Support

jVSTwRapper is an easy and reliable Wrapper to write audio plug-ins in
Java. It enables you to develop VST (2.4), Audio Unit (AU) and LADSPA
compatible audio plugins and virtual instruments plus user interfaces
(Swing) and run them on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. Five Demo Plugins
(+src) are included.

This is a major relase, introducing "one click
multi-platform, multi-plugin-technology deployment": jVSTwRapper has
slowly grown into a multi-platform, multi-plugin-technology project. By
providing native stubs for each platform and plug-in technology, a
single (Java) plugin runs on three platforms (windows, linux, mac osx)
and three plugin technologies (VST, AU, LADSPA) without any code changes
or recompilation. No more struggling with platform specific GUI
toolkits, different plugin technologies or operating system specific
features. All you need is to understand two basic technologies: Java and
VST. The rest is generated from a single command -- please see
http://jvstwrapper.sourceforge.net/#multi for more info. ... read more
