First, I’d just like to say that in the short time I’ve used this, it seems like an amazing synth. Nice work, and thanks for the free, OSS synth!
I generally prefer to build software from source of not available from
apt repos (I’m using Ubuntu). My DAW (Ardour) and all my plugins are built from source. While I trust the binaries provided online, these kinds of downloads are often targeted. Plus, I always like the ability to peek into the source code. I was able to build Vital from source fairly easily using the code on GitHub, but only the standalone and LV2 versions. The VST versions seem to be lacking the VST2 SDK. Even for VST3, it looks like it needs the VST2 headers. While the standalone version works great, the LV2 version freezes when I try to open the GUI in Ardour.
It looks like this is a problem with the version in question (v1.0.6 according to the source), which is a bit out of date. I was wondering if there are plans to release the source for newer versions?
EDIT: The crashing bug is addressed in GitHub issue #7 (I can’t put anymore links in), but still: are there plans to release newer versions on GH?
Thanks again for the awesome synth!
