There currently exist a number of plugin hosting solutions for Pd:

  • plugin~: supports only LADSPA plugins, and only one plugin instance per plugin~ object
  • dssi~: supports LADSPA and DSSI plugins and supports multiple plugin instances per dssi~ object
  • vst~: supports VST plugins. It has a different interface to plugin~ and dssi~. Development status is ??

There are a number of known issues that it would be good to resolve in a GSoC project:

  • Additional plugin support e.g. LV2, AudioUnits, ?
  • Unify plugin~ and dssi~
  • Full support in Pd extended - DSSI suppoer is currently not in there due to a dependency on liblo
  • Support and testing on a number of platforms - Windows/OSX/Linux
  • Transparent path specification between platforms
  • Fix strange loader bugs reported on the PD list (plugin~ and dssi~)
  • NASPRO backend ??
  • Common interface between hosts or single object for all plugin types ?
