Default DrumGizmo 0.9.17

DrumGizmo 0.9.17 Released!

As we had a lively discussion in these forums after we posted a notification for the last release here, I am glad to tell you that a few days ago we released a new version with a lot of new stuff.

However, let me first introduce our project. DrumGizmo is an open source, multichannel, multilayered, cross-platform
drum plugin and stand-alone application. It enables you to compose drums
in midi and mix them with a multichannel approach. It is comparable to
that of mixing a real drumkit that has been recorded with a multimic setup.

In this release we tried to jam in as many of our planned changes to the
xml as possible. There are still a few more to go but this release has
brought us a large step closer to our feature-complete xml format. Quite
a few other major features has also found their way into this release,
which will be much more visible (and audible) to the users.

Highlights:

* Improved sample selection algorithm. (arising from discussions in the reaper forums!)
* Clicky-kit feature.
* Midnam support.
* Directed choke functionality.
* Drumkit metadata support.
* Experimental Cocoa UI support for MacOSX.

Also some bug fixes and a lot of code refactoring (replaced eXpat with
pugixml for one).

For a detailed description of all the new shiny features, including
audio samples and lots of screenshots, see the changelog for 0.9.17 [1].

And now, without further ado, go grab 0.9.17 [2] and tell us what you think!

I guess the Linux VST version will be released sometime after KXstudio repos are resumed/updated. I thought I might be able to build it as Linux VST but I failed miserably. I know very little about these things.

The few times I've tried compiling plugins in Linux, it's never worked and always ends up complaining about some library or support file. I just blow 'em off if I can't un-archive down to the .so file which is all I want anyway.

For compilation of the Linux VST you actually need the VST sdk that you have to download from the Steinberg homepage (or get it somewhere else...). If you have that, then building is actually not that much different from building the lv2 plugin. You just have to provide the following option to the configure script:

--enable-vst --with-vst-sources=<replace_by_path_to_vst>

But yeah, if you are not experienced with this, then it is quite a pain.

Ah, so I had just missed one simple thing! I did enable VST in the configure step, but didn't provide path to the SDK which I'd "found". Thanks for the info.

I checked Synaptic and DrumGizmo and the editor were listed, so I installed them, but it looks like from my repository it's only standalone and maybe LV2. REAPER didn't see any new plugins after installing it from Synaptic. Ah well, I was going to give it a try with my V-Drums, but it looks like a no go with what's available for Xubuntu.

So compile it and post a link to the .so file!

Unfortunately, Debian and its derivatives only distribute the LV2 version as far as I know.

Reaper loads Drumgizmo vsti, but the vsti doesn't show anything, just a blank
big square. I only go the Drumgizmo and the drumkits. What am I doing wrong?

Windows 10.

Close the window and reopen it. It's a known bug in the Windows version that they're working on resolving.

I just tried it in Windows 7 64-bit which is still on my laptop. On first open it's a blank window. Close it, re-open the fx browser, and it's visible.

I don't know if it's different in Windows 10. I don't use Windows 10.

I'm sorry for the very late reply.

Some of the old drumkit files were inconsistent, but our old parser was very generous about that. Now we have a better and stricter parser for the drumkit files and thus it might give errors. We have supplied patches to the drumkit files which need to be fixed here:

https://drumgizmo.org/wiki/doku.php?id=kits

Just klick on the kits and then und Downloads you can get the fixed files. We also just released 0.9.18 which has improved error messages when loading a drumkit.
