LSP Plugins 1.1.28 available!
Today we celebrate 5 year since the 1.0.0 release. That's hard to imagine but the huge amount of work has been done.
For these 5 years LSP Plugins became one of the top audio plugins used in Linux music production. Among this period new requirements came to the project and we tried to fulfill them all while caring for the quality, stability and performance of the software.
Anyway, there are some requirements that don't fit into the project and require th codebase to be rewritten. This year was dedicated for refactoring and decomposition of core modules but, sadly, the refactoring process did not end up to the end of this year. Hope we'll finally end up with the 1.2.0 release in the next year which will refresh the internal plugin architecture and change user and developer experience.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

LSP Plugins 1.1.11 is ready!
This release is published exactly 4 years after the 1.0.0 release of LSP Plugins and is aimed to close many core and UI technical debts. All these changes make LSP Project much better in the UI experience and much faster from the DSP perspective.
That's because support of additional features like drag&drop, bookmarks and some other neat features were added to the graphical toolkit.
From the other side, low-level DSP code is additionally optimized with AVX and AVX2 instruction sets which allow to gain additional performance benefits on processors which have fast AVX implementation (All Intel Core 6 generation processors and above, AMD Zen generation processors and above). There was improved support of AArch64 architecture, and some part of DSP code already has been ported to this architecture. The DSP code for ARMv7 architecture also has been additionally refactored and optimized.
Also, the project became more portable because introduced it's own support of XML document parsing mechanism and does not require the expat library more.
The overall list of changes is the following:
- Source code now compiles for the ARMv6A architecture.
- Implemented incoming drag & drop events support for sample loading and file loading widgets.
- Added possibility to double-click the parameter's value and enter it manually with keyboard.
- Added bookmark support by file opening/saving dialogs. Bookmarks are also automatically imported from GNOME/KDE desktop environments' configuration files.
- Refactored UI of the Parameteric Equalizer plugin series.
- Added allpass filters to Parametric Equalizer plugin.
- Added knobs that allow to simultaneously shift frequency for all active filters in the Parametric Equalizer plugin series.

- Refactored UI of the Graphic Equalizer plugin series.
- Updated UI of the Multiband Compressor plugin series.
- Implemented allpass filters that add phase compensation for the classic mode of the Multiband compressor and allow to achieve flat frequency response.
- Changed reverb simulation algorithm for the Room Builder plugin: the algorithm now handles capture objects as opaque objects, not part of the 3D scene. So the number and location of the captures does not impact the audio simulations. This allows to render the impulse response in more accurate way. However, even after some set of additional optimizations has been made, this yields to some performance degradation because there are much more ray groups required to be processed.
- Added possibility to export state to clipboard and import state from clipboard from the UI of any plugin.
- Added possibility to freeze all graphs in the Spectrum Analyzer simultaneously.
- Added MIDI groups to Multisampler plugin series.
- Added possibility to control how panning and gain controls affect the signal passed to the direct output tracks of the Multisampler plugin.

- Implemented styling system and basic styling mechanism for UIs.
- Additionally optimized DSP biquad filters for 32-bit ARM NEON instruction set.
- Additional DSP optimizations for AArch64 architecture.
- Additional DSP optimizations of code with AVX, AVX2 and FMA3 instruction set for i586 and x86_64 architectures.
- Refactored clipboard mechanism for X11 protocol, addes support of INCR selection transfer protocol.
- Refactoring of the UI widgets, eliminated old UI code and some deprecated facilities from all widgets.
- Implemented basic styling mechanism for UI widgets.

- Updated VST state serialization mechanism to version 3: now plugin properly handle state if there
- is no chunk header in the chunk data passed from the host.
LSP Plugins release 1.1.10 is ready!
The development of 1.1.10 version took the longest cycle in contrast to previous releases.
All the changes were planned since January 2019 but many supplementary problems should be solved first.
This release contains a lot of internal plugin framework changes, implementation of new UI widgets and, probably, a killer toy: LSP Room Builder plugin series. This plugin allows to simulate impulse response of ANY room (and not only room). You just need to model it first in a 3D editor/designer and export as a Wavefont (OBJ) file.
