Odin 2 Synthesizer Plugin
This is the home of Odin 2 free VST3, AU and LV2 synthesizer plugin. This repository contains the code to build the project. If you just want to download the synth, get it from https://thewavewarden.com/odin2
Download JUCE 6.0.1. The project is currently build against JUCE 6.0.1. You can use newer JUCE versions, but the code will need some adjustments then. Open the file
Projucerapplication from the JUCE main directory. Now generate the build files by pressing
Ctrl + Pinside the
Projucer. You can close
Open the VS2019 solution
VisualStudio2019and compile the project.
Open the XCode project
odin2/Builds/MacOSX/Odin2.xcodeprojand compile it.
Open a terminal and navigate to
odin2/Builds/LinuxMakefile. Now compile the project with
make. You will most likely hit some errors because header files are not found. You need to find out which packages the header belongs to and install the required packages. For Ubuntu 18.04, the required packages can be installed with
sudo apt install libx11-dev libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev mesa-common-dev libasound2-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev
VST2 is no longer licensed by Steinberg. You will need to find the
VST2 SDKon the internet yourself. Once you have it, open
Projuceragain. Navigate to
File -> Global Paths...and under
VST (Legacy) SDKinsert the path to the
VST2_SDKfolder. Close the window and hit the gear-icon on the top left of the
VST (Legacy). Press
Ctrl + Sand build the project again as described above.
IMPORTANT: Steinbergs licencing prohibits you from distributing any VST2 plugins, unless you've been a registered developer with them since 2018.
First, you'll need the LV2 headers. On Ubuntu you can install them with
sudo apt install lv2-devYou'll also need a custom set of JUCE modules from the LV2 Porting Project. Clone the JUCE fork and check out the
git clone -b lv2 https://github.com/lv2-porting-project/JUCE/ ~/JUCELV2Now open Odin in your regular Projucer:
/path/to/juce/Projucer odin2/Odin.jucerNavigate to
Global Paths. In the Field
JUCE Modulesenter, the modules from the repo you just cloned, e.g.:
~/JUCELV2/modulesClose the Dialog and generate the Project again with
Ctrl + P. Close the Projucer.
Add these lines to
odin2/JuceLibraryCode/AppConfig.hand make sure they are contained within the user code section: ``` // [BEGINUSERCODE_SECTION]
#define JucePluginBuildLV2 1 #define JucePluginLV2URI "https://www.thewavewarden.com/odin2" #define JucePluginMaxNumOutputChannels 2
The last step is to append a line to the generated Makefile with this command:echo -e "include ../../LV2.mak" >> odin2/Builds/LinuxMakefile/Makefile ``
Now you can build the project again withmake
as before. Note: Every time you export the project from theProjucer`, you'll have to append the line to the Makefile again.
