LARAN - LADSPA Architecture for Recursive Audio Networks


LARAN is a meta-plugin which allows the creation of audio processing networks, called A-nets. Each A-net corresponds to one associated LADSPA descriptor, so they are usable by any LADSPA host.

An A-net is a network of audio processing nodes, each of which is itself a LADSPA descriptor. These descriptors may even correspond to other A-nets, so long as there is not a circular dependencies.

When an A-net is instantiated, it creates an instance network, called an I-net, which refers to all of the associated node instances. Operations on the instance are propagated appropriately through the I-net.

This project is currently in a pre-alpha state. The parser for LARAN specifications is currently being developed.
