Calf studiogear is an extensive and high quality plugin pack for professional audio production under Linux. It provides a lot of synthesizers, effects and signal processing for the use with LV2 audio production suites (like Ardour) or as stand-alone through JACK.

Calf with all of its new features and processors isn't officially released by now so you have to grab the GIT-repository from sourceforge.net until we are ready for a stable release.

Calf Studio Gear: New Timing Selectors And Other New Features

Donnerstag, den 5. November 2015

Calf_Vintage_DelaySome time ago I updated Vintage Delay and Pulsator with a new timing selector widget. Now it’s possible to not only set bpm or tap in the tempo but to select as milliseconds or hertz, too – or just sync it to the host.

Calf_PulsatorAdditionally Pulsator got a Pulse Width setting (which needs some more work) and it’s possible to offset both channels individually now.

Calf_Vintage_Delay2Another partially implemented (but actually ot working) feature is the new Pattern Editor in Vintage Delay where one can build custom delay patterns up to 8 beats with 8 fragments at max. As soon as we have full atoms support the Pattern Editor will be fully functional.

Screenshot 2015-10-23_14:34:38The latest update provides custom names for rack devices. Simply click on the title of a plug-in in the rack, enter a desired name and hit return. It is reflected in the rack, in jack and in the window title of plug-ins windows and it gets saved with your Calf session, too.

Calf Studio Gear: EQ30 Fixes And Features

Freitag, den 23. Oktober 2015

Calf_eq30Lately I fixed the 30 Band Equalizer of drgreenthumb since it never really worked in a couple of hosts other than calfjackhost. Additionally there’s a new feature – both channels can affect the stereo signal individually now which means that you can have something like A/B comparison. And I reduced the necessary LV2 ports by 60 (!).

Calf Studio Gear: Equalizer Improvements

Donnerstag, den 16. Juli 2015

Calf_Equalizer_8_BandThe equalizer series received a couple of updates:

  • Low shelf, high shelf, low pass and high pass have Q (or resonance) now (see screenshot HS and LP how it affects the response)
  • Handles for low and high pass filters have z-axis (mouse wheel) for Q
  • Handles labels show Q on hovering with mouse
  • More information on low and high pass filters (see sceenshot HP)
  • Labels drawing improved (opaque background, line height and more)

(Please be aware that the user interface of the git version has some flaws actually)

Calf Studio Gear: Calf Is Styleable – O RLY?

Sonntag, den 28. Juni 2015

O-rly001 Calf - Wood Calf - HybreedSince Calf supports custom styles boring weekends are history it seems .)

There are some minor problems I’m struggling with but mainly everything works fine by now.

Calf Studio Gear: New Design!

Samstag, den 30. Mai 2015

Calf - Equalizer 8 Band

Calf - Tape Simulator

Calf - Transient Designer

Calf - Vintage Delay

Calf - Envelope Filter

But apart from the fresh surface and fancy nipples the equalizer line graph got an update – they show dB, notes, cents and MIDI numbers for handles (I’m hovering the left most handle in the screenshot) and in the cross hair. Oh and not to forget – Q for shelves! See the result in the equalizer screenshot – the most right circular handle is a high shelv with a higher Q. And last not least – we have reliable meter scales now.

Calf Studio Gear: New Website, New Domain, New Repository

Donnerstag, den 28. Mai 2015

Calf_Studio_Gear_GNU_Linux_Audio_Plug_Ins_IceweaselWe’re proud to introduce our new web „experience“ – a new website with a new domain and a new repository. Unfortunately we lost lots of great reviews, all bugs and feature requests and so on but we couldn’t stand the actual behavior of SourceForge anymore. There was a discussion among us about this topic and today Krzysztof made me aware of this one so we decied it’s time to finally leave SF and to publish the new website in that course.

The most promising solution was GitHub, so we moved the repository over there and we will use its issue system for tickets in the future.

https://github.com/calf-studio-gear/calf

The new website is now available at:

http://calf-studio-gear.org

…which is also much faster than the SF webserver. I informed all owners of open bugs but once again: sorry for any inconvenience!

If you are experiencing any problems with the new website feel free to report them here. Thanks in advance.

And please remember to update your Git config to „url = https://github.com/calf-studio-gear/calf.git“!

Hint: This is not what I meant with „what I was working on the last few weeks“ yesterday…
