MiniMoog like LV2 instrument: Raffo


Hi all,

I found a simple MiniMoog clone as LV2 instrument named “Raffo”. Here is the build script (which is also located inside zynthian-recipe:

# raffo.lv2
cd $ZYNTHIAN_SW_DIR/plugins
sudo apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends libgtkmm-2.4-dev
git clone
cd moog
sed -i -- 's/^INSTALL_DIR.\+$/INSTALL_DIR = ${ZYNTHIAN_PLUGINS_DIR}\/lv2/' Makefile
sed -i -- 's/-m64//' Makefile
sudo make install
make clean
cd ..

After installation it should be usable inside MOD-UI - and perhaps later (if it works well) via jalv on the main screen of Zynthian.

Regards, Holger


Thanks! I will try ASAP …


I’ve been around lv2 for a long time and have never seen this synth before. Great find! I’ll have to try it out when I get a chance.

We could make a version without the gtk dependency. The UI is pretty basic, and not useful for zynthian.


Hello @C0d3man,

I’ve got a problem with this line of code of yours:

sed: can’t read Makefile: No such file or directory
Except for installing the lines above ( and PTQ6.4 from webconf),
is there something missing?
I’m on a plain Gorgona V2 image, nothing ‘beta’ installed yet.

Greetings and God bless, Marius


If it can’t find the Makefile, did it clone the git repo correctly?


Yes, it did. I did a
cd moog and the makefile was found.

Thanks for your help, @Baggypants.

I will test it tomorrow…

Greetings and God bless, Marius


Oh, sorry. Copy&paste problem. I have fixed this in the script above.

Regards, Holger


Yeah, I’ve thought about that, too. But first I wanted to get the thing to work.

Regards, Holger


I prefer to stay cool and wait until it shows up magically.

Thx @jofemodo


Good news, @zynthianers!

I’m back … more or less … and nothing better for my return that integrating the latest toy discovered by @C0d3man … so here comes Raffo for every zynthianer in the block!!

Just update and enjoy!! (remember to enable the plugin for Jalv from the webconf tool!!)

Thanks @C0d3man!!
