|Into the source code of guitarix, is the dkbuilder, a software which can convert an electronic shematic into a lv2 audio plugin.
The dkbuilder need geda for the schematic, faust for the math (to convert the electronic into a real-time audio plugin using state of the art algorithm) and a python virtual environment.
dkbuilder on linuxmusicians
If the exact URL change, make a search on linuxmusicians for "dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin".
I put a live ebuild for it at https://github.com/domichel/GenCool
It install guitarix as usual. With USE="dkbuilder", the dkbuilder will be installed world writable into /usr/share/dkbuilder and an improved script to manage the dkbuilder python virtual environment will be installed at /usr/bin/dkbuilder
As dkbuilder depend on the source code file hierarchy, it is the only way I find to install it, have the files managed by portage and be user writable. If you know a better location, please tell me.
Anyway, it work fine for me and if it can be useful for someone else, you know where to find it.
