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: All Plug-Ins With Level Meters, Bypass and Gains

Freitag, den 6. November 2015

Screenshot 2015-11-06_03:33:31Tonight I implemented level meters, bypass and gain knobs to all plug-ins which were missing these widgets. Non-signal-processing plug-ins like Reverb or Multichorus got an On/Off switch instead of a bypass toggle. This way a comparison between dry and wet is much easier and meaningful. Bypass copies the input directly to the output while switching off e.g. a flanger just removes the effect signal from the output, dry signal keeps its level.

Additionally some of the plug-ins UIs were overhauled, basically they got more compact.

Calf Studio Gear: Plug-In Controllers In Calfjackhost

Donnerstag, den 5. November 2015

Calf_JACK_HostA feature request which appeared quite often was at least a bypass button for all plugins in calfjackhost. Lately the main work for adding a much broader spectrum of plug-ins controls was done. It still hides in a branch called „rackwidgets“ but is fully funcitonal now. Only one problem left: The knobs don’t update their counterparts atm. As soon as this gets sorted out we’ll merge the stuff into the master.

Oh and we got scales for the meters in calfjackhost now, too!

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.

Calf Studio Gear: Individual Names In Calfjackhost

Freitag, den 23. Oktober 2015

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.
