Open AV Productions: Fabla

Who recalls the times when Linux audio users were craving for a sampler LV2 plugin? Soon we will have even more choice besides drumkv1 and samplv1, enter Fabla! No idea what Fabla stands for but it sure looks fablalous.


Fabla by Open AV Productions uses the same release model as used with Sorcer recently. Instead of a year it took 9 days to push back the release date of Sorcer and hopefully the same thing will happen with Fabla. I’d love to get my hands on this plugin so I’ve done my part to speed up the release date.

Edit: Fabla has been released within 8 days!

  1. If only it had a proper configure / install system (Sorcer is worse in that regard).
    I’m considering writing one for the two, given that there is a git repo, I’m just wondering if anyone has done it before. Oh, and it would be nice it I succeed to build it once ; What dependency could possibly be missing from this list ?

  2. Hi xaccrocheur,

    Please get in touch with regards this build error if it is still an issue:
    github.com/harryhaaren/openAV-Fabla/issues/

    Although I do read Jermey’s blog, I’m not expecting bug reports here.
    Cheers, -Harry

    PS: You’re missing the LV2 Log extension
