I recently joined. Just a quick note about a little project of mine: Minuit
It is a (currently work in progress) Gtk based Rust application to be a stand alone software synthesizer with a piano keyboard widget and direct MIDI controller support. It include a sin wave synthesizer taken from Qwertone and uses Fluidlite with a soundfont for a toy e-piano.
My goal is to explore making a small audio app to play music, for both learning this field of application and music itself.
This also led me to create the MIDI control crate:
I grafted midi-consts, extended it and extracted the MIDI code from Minuit and built a demo to make my Arturia MiniLab MkII pads to blink. The goal is to have a crate for MIDI controllers, including supporting sysex, the longer term is to have a framework to map MIDI control to UI.
This will make me explore using Rust to host LV2 plugins.
