  1. This is for the free plan only.
  2. Clear your AUR helper's cache (or the debian package file if you're using makepkg directly) if you get a validity check error.

As some folks have pointed out, there are multiple issues with the latest version. Seems I cannot bring the version back. I suggest you do the following.

  1. Clone the repository git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/vital-synth.git

  2. Remove the last three commits git reset --hard HEAD~3. This should bring it to 1.0.3.

  3. Run makepkg -si. This should install 1.0.3.

This is temporary, I'll figure a way.

Many people report crashes and graphics bugs in the 1.0.4, for example: https://forum.vital.audio/t/plugin-crash-with-1-0-4-on-bitwig-3-3-1-in-linux/4423 https://forum.vital.audio/t/new-version-crash-on-linux-manjaro/4230/26

I suggest using the 1.0.3 version until bugs get fixed. You can get it by logging in https://account.vital.audio/, then clicking on "All downloads".

Hmm. Anyone get this working with Bitwig + i3 by chance? Tried loading it just now and it crashed due to an error with X:

Are you using an AUR helper (yay for example)? If so, delete the folder ~/.cache/yay/vital-synth/ or whatever corresponds to your AUR helper and try again.

Thank you for your answers, makes sense.

Hello @mmxgn,

  1. The source for this synth hasn't (yet?) been released. The upstream has two package formats for linux.

    a. the debian (.deb) format which contains a root with a nicely structured file hierarchy, which is suitable for a system-wide install (which is why I chose this).

    b. a portable zip file format which is a bit barebones compared to the debian package, which is meant for local (your home directory) use.

  2. I thought there was a library in it which was missing in the corresponding x86_64 packages (I found it later). Since archlinux supports x86_64 only, I've removed it and I'm pretty sure you won't be needing it anymore. Clear your yay cache (usually located at ~/.cache/yay/<pkg-name>) if you're using yay and are facing troubles when reinstalling the package.

  3. The installer is hosted on AWS and the upstream doesn't give you a persistent link, which isn't very good for the curl-bots that makepkg (which is used by AUR helpers like yay) uses. So I'm putting it on github releases.

Hi,

Thanks for creating this package

Three questions:

  1. Why use the .deb file of the synth?
  2. Why is aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc>=5 needed?
  3. Why do you self-host the installer?
