Would anyone be interested in an (unofficial) RustFest workshop about writing VST audio plugins in Rust?
I’m interested in teaching this workshop if enough people are interested in this topic,
so please reply to this if you’ll be at RustFest and you are interested
The workshop would show how to make an audio VST plugin from start to finish, e.g. a simple synth or effect (e.g. kickdrum synth).
Afterwards you’ll be able to build on what you learned to build more complex VST plugins.
And you’ll be able to hear the result of your VST plugin by loading it in a VST host.
There are free hosts available, depending on your platform.
The VST will be cross-platform (Win, Mac, Linux) so you can participate if you run any of these OSes.
You don’t need to know any DSP math for the workshop.
Btw, I’m not sure how much spare time there will be for unofficial events like this.
It seems that all workshops will be at the same time on Sunday, so everyone can only attend one workshop at that time. I also want to attend another workshop, so I’d do this VST workshop when we have some spare time.
