Is BFD on Linux possible?

Hi folks,

I thought maybe I should ask the dedicated BFD community if anyone has tried and got BFD running on Linux in any way, via any means necessary? :slight_smile:

I have absolutely no idea how someone would go about even trying such a thing, but if anyone has, please share!

My other question is, does anyone else want this? BFD on Linux? Am I alone in this? If its a thing that enough people want, maybe Iโ€™ll get it ?:slight_smile:

(Sorry, Drew! :slight_smile: )

EDIT: Just to say BFD is literally the only thing keeping me in Windows now that Reaper is fully Linux. BFD Linux would mean being able to ditch Windows completely, and this would please me muchly.

Hi,

On Linux, some plugins can be run with Wine. I have not try yet, but BFD may also be.

Now, VST3 SDK has capability to build native Linux binary, and Reaper on Linux has support native VST3 plugins. But currently, the VST version of BFD is based on VST2.4 SDK, so noway to run natively on Linux.

IMO, I guess BFD will not support Linux why it is difficult to support; compatibilities of distributions, system versions, drivers, audio middleware, etc. But, cannot say โ€œno possibilityโ€ since some plugin vendors have been released official/beta Linux versions.
