Open Source Audio Research has published an updated version of Protoplug, an on-the-fly scriptable plugin using LuaJIT. Protoplug is a free, open-source VST/AU plugin that allows a user to load and edit Lua scripts as audio effects and instruments. The scripts can process audio and MIDI, display their own interface, and use external libraries. For more info, check out the website or the KVR page.
- An embedded interactive Lua prompt based on ilua. It allows you to quickly inspect or modify any globals in the current Lua state.
- Live Mode. Check this new option to enable compile-as-you-type, in the traditional live-coding style.
Code changes and Bug-fixes:
- Better host support and packaging. If you had any trouble with the 1.0 version, it may be fixed in the new version.
- Modified the way parameters are created in the Lua API. This may break some previous scripts, but the fix is easy (check the examples for the new declaration style).
