ifoundasound LiveProfessor

ifoundasound has released Alpha 4 of LiveProfessor – The Sound Processor, a host software for VST effect plug-ins.

LiveProfessor is designed to be a effect rack of VST-plugins. I have designed it specifically with live sound in mind. The concept is very simple. Using a ASIO audio card you can route inputs and outputs through your VST-plugins. The program supports snapshots, MIDI and both VST-effects and VST-instrument.

Changes in LiveProfessor Alpha 4

  • New: Cue lists. recall any number of snapshots at once + +.
  • New: MIDI hardware control of all plugin parameters.
  • New: Meters, on inputs and outputs of the plugins.
  • New: Change ASIO sample rate.
  • New: Possible to set default MIDI patch.
  • New: Midi input on units now filtered by midi channel.
  • New: Possible to ban a plugin from being scanned when looking for new vst-plugins.
  • New: Now possible to copy one snapshot from one plugin to others.
  • Improved: Colors and look of patch window, now more readable.
  • Improved: Plugin list.
  • Fix: “Stream read error” when loading projects with some types of plugins.
  • Fix: to many to list all. a bunch of improvements, bug fixes.

LiveProfessor Alpha 4 is available for download for Windows PC.

    Already this is looking very promising. Very nice design work all round and elegant concepts. Even in it’s alpha stage it seems very stable. Tip: check the quick start guides online.

    The Cue feature has got some very interesting potentials (think: scripting chains of VST based of “events” each with unique routing etc). Could be adapted nicely for live theatre work.

    While I’m fond of vsthost and minihost for running VST(i) for testing / making presets, I’m finding I’m now making good use of LP.

    Related: the audio database program (Ifoundasound) is also recommended for sound designer types. This is already well on the way to being a reliable freeware alternative to something like Basehead (for single computer use).

    It uses the BASS Audio Library:

    A small quibble – I don’t think the msi (win) installers are really necessary. It seems all these guys could run happily as portable apps, with all settings / db data saved to the program folder.
