Create audio plugins on-the-fly with LuaJIT.

Protoplug is a scriptable plugin that lets you load and edit Lua/LuaJIT scripts as audio effects and instruments. The scripts can process audio and MIDI, display their own interface, and use external libraries.

Cross-platform: builds for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. This means that all protoplug scripts are compatible with these platforms and can be loaded into a huge amount of audio software (glory to JUCE).

Fast: Use the speed of LuaJIT, and perform DSP tasks as efficiently as old school C implementations.

Free and open source: Want a new feature? Add it yourself. The source is MIT-licensed and available on Github.

Five stars for Lua.

Thank you much for tool!.

Lua unfortunately is underrated language.

I'm beginner in coding yet but I glad to have that plugin.

Keep it up!.

What can I write? An easy scripting language tool with a lot of comfort ideas for easy prototyping of dsp algos or just doing some non-so-mainstream fx/gen and that crossplatform, fast, quite stable and free? How could I vote below 10 then?

Try it! Quite some interesting algos available in the package and also the forum. Ok the preset loading is quite rudimentary and could provide more comfort. A donate button is missing on the webpage.

Reminds me VSTLUA but is stable and lets you play with audio also.

Only left for the community to increase the library of Protoplug fx and instruments.

Very cool and inspiring tool. Also nice for quickly prototyping some dsp algo. And it's quite fast, too. And cross platform. Hope the author will improve it with some comfort functionality...
