editor's review




NASPRO (NASPRO Architecture for Sound PROcessing) is a completely free, cross-platform, open source and platform-independent web-based software implemented in C/JavaScript as a collection of sound processing utilities based on the LV2 plugin standard.

The application can be easily described as a thread-safe, reusable, powerful, real-time capable, modular, standard-agnostic and scalable framework for digital signal processing for GNU/Linux and UNIX-like operating systems.

Implement support for any sound processing plugin

Audio application developers will be able to use the NASPRO framework to implement support for any sound processing plugin, including LADSPA (Linux Audio Developer's Simple Plugin API), DSSI (Disposable Soft Synth Interface), LV2 (LADSPA version 2), AudioUnits, VST (Virtual Studio Technology), and DirectX.

Getting started with NASPRO

To install and use the NASPRO program on your GNU/Linux computer, download the files provided by Softpedia on the dedicated download section above. Save them all in the same directory and unpack them.

The Core package is the main archive, which needs to be compiled from a terminal emulator app. So, open the Terminal app, go to the location of the extracted archive files (e.g. cd /home/softpedia/naspro-core-0.5.1) and run the ‘./configure && make && sudo make install’ command.

The Bridges and lv2proc packages contains a collection of bridges for LV2 and they can be added to the Core package during the configuration process (see the ‘./configure --help’ command or the project’s website for details).

Under the hood and supported operating systems

NASPRO is known to work on Linux, but it can be easily ported to the FreeBSD, Haiku, Syllable, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It has been written in the C programming language, using the JavaScript scripting language for the web-based interface.

Besides Linux, the software has not been tested on any other POSIX operating system, but it is compatible with computers supporting either of the 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86_64) CPU architectures.
