Software Description

NASPRO is meant to be a cross-platform sound processing software architecture built around the LV2 plugin standard.

The goal of the project is to develop a series of tools to make it easy and convenient to use LV2 for sound processing on any (relevant) platform and for everybody: end users, host developers, plugin developers, distributors and scientists/researchers.

This release is a total redesign/rewrite that more or less reimplements the features of the previous release, but in a much cleaner and maintainable way.

It includes:

  • NASPRO core: the portable runtime library at the bottom of the architecture;
  • NASPRO Bridge it: a little helper library to develop insert-your-API-here to LV2 bridges;
  • NASPRO bridges: a collection of bridges to LV2 which, once installed, allow you to use plugins developed for other plugin standards in LV2 hosts.

In particular, the NASPRO bridges collection includes two bridges: a LADSPA 1.1 and a DSSI 1.0.0/1.1.0 bridge.

The project started in 2007 as a generic plugin API wrapping framework (any API-to-any API) and it had two releases (0.1.0 and 0.1.1) as such in 2008; it supported LADSPA, Audacious' EffectPlugin API and a custom interpreted textual effect description format called NDF.

Still in 2008 we joined the development community and partecipated to the Google Summer of Code 2008 programme with a project on NDF.

New in v0.2.91
This is mostly a bugfix release

The first half of 2009 has been a troubled period where the future of the project was somewhat uncertain and only little useful code was written, yet the big decision of switching to LV2 was taken and some experiments on package building, distribution and alternative platforms took place.

Then, the project restarted from scratch in May 2009 and we partecipated to the Google Summer of Code 2009 programme with a project consisting in the development of a simple LV2 host to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of this plugin format.

Since July 2009 LADSPA 1.1, including LRDF data, is fully supported, while DSSI support is in place since September 2009 (with some limitations, though).

On May 2nd, 2010 the long-awaited 0.2.0 release finally came out.

As if we didn't do this already too often, in September 2010 we restarted from scratch again.

On March 20th, 2011 the 0.2.90 release came out.
