Hi, I'm not sure I can actually post here on the corner today, so this one is short and sweet.

For my own evil purposes, I recently updated a personal clone of Helm to JUCE 7.0.x and added a VS2022 projucer exporter, among other updates.  I now have my own personal copy of Helm vst3 that is way ahead of the official master and master hasn't been updated in 4 - 5 years.

Is Plugin Guru looking for a FOSS vst synth like (a fork of) Helm to bundle with Unify?

I can't personally host a project fork at this time, but I do have updated code I could contribute to a project fork (possibly sitting next to getdunne/MOrgan?).

Peace

We're unlikely to add any more FOSS plug-ins to Unify, because it just adds more code dependencies, and we have more than enough already. The wonderful thing about free plug-ins is that they're free, so anyone can get them--provided they're available online and up-to-date.

My suggestion would be to make your own fork of Helm available publicly on GitHub, so if you or anyone else wanted to create e.g. a unified Helm library, you could just point people to the repo to get the latest release. Alternatively, you could include Mac and Windows builds of the plug-in in the zip for the library, with instructions for how to install them and register in Unify.

@getdunne Thanks for your reply.  I understand.  Eventually, if the repo stays dormant and I can't find another place to contribute my Helm updates, I probably will just host yet another fork at github.  But what I want to do first, hopefully it's not too late already, is to help "open source" the "legacy code" of independent software developer John Dunn.  I am still a fan of John's software, but I seem to have lost touch with the company for the exact wrong eight or nine years.  Artwonk is freeware now but it doesn't run in Windows 10, only the Musicwonk portion runs in Windows 10.  If the Artwonk code base can still be open sourced more than four years after his passing (because John's development machine is still sitting in his [former] home office or something), then I want to host a project to bring a new version of Artwonk to JUCE and OpenGL (and make it cross-platform?).
