Announcement: Audio TK 0.1.0

A long time ago, I started implementing audio filters with a Qt GUI. I also started other pet projects in the same area, but I didn’t have a proper audio support library in C++ for that. Also Qt plugins are no longer an option (for me), I still hope to implement new filters in the future.

Enters Audio ToolKit. It is loosely inspired by ITK and VTK, with a pipeline concept that should allow for composition and extensibility. The first official release supports my previous example with a simple overdrive.

It is currently only available on OS X, as it is now my main development platform. It should be quite easy to compile ATK 0.1.0 on Windows and Linux once the FFT filter based on Accelerate can support other FFT implementations (which is a goal for 0.2.0).

  1. “Qt plugins are no longer an option (for me)”

    This is ambiguous, what do you mean?

    Why didn’t you use fftw for the FFT?

    1. Hi David!
      I mean that the solution I used to create VST plugins with a Qt interface is not maintained anymore. I think I’ll try cockos library soon when I port the previous plugins to ATK.
      As for the FFT, I used Accelerate because it was easier at the time. On git, the development version uses FFTW by default (and I will have to use FFT even more for my current FIR development).
