I’ve been playing around with Zynthian for a week or so; it’s an amazing project and thanks to all the hard effort everyone has put into it. I’ve seen some dated posts on VCV-Rack but nothing focused on bringing it into Zynthian as a synth engine. At a high level it seems feasible with the risk being performance and software user interaction. On the performance side there is another project (sonaremin) which bundles it and whose author has some headstart in optimizing the build for Raspberry Pi. For the UI, I was thinking using X11 forwarding or VNC would work for building out virtualized euroracks and the Zynthian could be used for layer management with more robust interaction that could be discovered as the project matured.
I’m interested in a couple things. Is this project of interest to the community? It would be easier for me to manage the installation and configuration manually on my box but if this is aligned with and supported by this group I’d take a stab at contributing back. Are there prototypical examples of how to bootstrap this project? The documentation has good pointers but if a subject matter expert could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
Any help, pointers or guidance welcome and much appreciated.
