Frameworks for audio software development

5.30pm Monday 23 May 2016
Jerome Booth Music Therapy Centre, Young Street, Cambridge, CB1 2LZ

Speaker: Martin Robinson, Programme Leader for Audio and Music Technology, University of the West of England, Bristol and author of Getting Starting with JUCE

Martin trained in music composition and electronic music before becoming increasingly interested in developing custom audio and music systems. He developed the UGen++ C++ library for developing audio applications that was based on the look-and-feel of the SuperCollider audio programming language. More recently he developed the Plonk|Plink|Plank C/C++ libraries, also for audio application development.

JUCE is a widely-used framework for audio application and plug-in development. In particular it:

  • Enables cross-platform development on Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android
  • Makes it easy to build versatile user interfaces
  • Allows the creation of Audio Unit and VST plug-ins using the same codebase
  • Handles MIDI and OSC and the new MPE standard
