9 In the past two days (actually, mornings and evenings) I have been working on
10 porting the famous [mda EPiano VSTi plugin](http://mda-vst.com) to the LV2
11 plugin framework. The sound of the electric piano is very inspiring. Hear for
12 yourself:

16 You can [download the recording from soundcloud](http://soundcloud.com/rekado/chinese-tune).
17 The recording was done with `arecordmidi` while routing all incoming midi
18 events through the LV2 plugin. An instance of `jack_capture` was used to
19 record the generated sound simultaneously. If you want to compare my port of
20 the plugin to your favorite synthesizer, you can [download the midi file
21 here](/downies/music/chinese-tune.mid).

23 The LV2 port can be [downloaded from my github
24 repository](http://github.com/rekado/lv2-mdaEPiano). Please flattr this post if
25 you like my porting work.
