Description Porcupine of the Moon 2015-09-26 19:20:22 UTC
I wrote a simple ebuild for "carla", which is an audio plugin host.

Reproducible: Always

I'm not sure about the license.
The source files contain both the GPL and LGPL.

The source lives at:
The code is C++ except for the frontend, which appears to be partially written in Python.  It depends on Qt and its build system uses custom Makefiles.

P.S. Carla by now also has releases.  Version 2.2.0 is currently the latest.
