CLAP: An new plugin format

        A heads up – There is a new, apparently open source (divorcing it from Steinbergs corporate whims), plugin format that recently came out.  It’s called CLAP.  STD jokes aside, it is already supported in REAPER, and some plugin makers are already shipping plugs. Just an FYI.

            We’ll never see Avid supporting a third party plugin format 🙁

              What makes this different from the other formats other than it being open source?  How does that benefit the end user?  And, do we really need another format?

                All great questions.  I don’t have any CLAP plugins so I cannot say from experience.  But I think of CLAP vs. VST similarly to Linux vs. Microsoft.  There are times when you want to escape being under the thumb, and dependent on, a single corporate overlord.
