Using "Bona-Fida" reversed engineered Headers to distribute vst2 "like" plugins

Dear fellow devs, i just started out developing audio plugins and planning on starting a business with that. Since a few days i am sleeping bad because i found out that distributing VST2 PlugIns will be illegal for me as i didn’t sign a license agreement with Steinberg before October 2018. This would be a major drawback for any new business trying to sell audio plugins, since one of the most used DAW (and my beloved favourite) didn’t support VST2 until recently in their current major version. ...

Announcing website snapshot for Trandoshan

When I have written my article for Trandoshan [/building-fast-modern-web-crawler/] I didn't expect so much positive feedback. More than 15k views on the article, hundred stars on the Github repository... I am very happy about it. My first plan was to stop the development right after 1.0.0 was working and the article was published in order to move on new project(s). But despite of that I have had several cool features in mind. Since the project seems to interest some people I have decided to im

SpeedScript is a word processor originally printed as a type-in machine language listing in 1984-85 issues of Compute! and Compute!'s Gazette magazines. Approximately 5 KB in length, it provided many of the same features as commercial word processing packages of the early 8-bit era, such as PaperClip and Bank Street Writer. Versions were published for the Apple II, Commodore 64 and 128, Atari 8-bit family, VIC-20, and for MS-DOS. Versions In April 1983 Compute! published Scriptor, a word processor written by staff writer Charles Brannon in BASIC and assembly language, as a type-in program for the Atari 8-bit family. In January 1984 version 1.0 of his new word processor SpeedScript appeared in Compute!'s Gazette for the Commodore 64 and VIC-20. 1.1 appeared in Compute!'s Second Book of Commodore 64, 2.0 on Gazette Disk in May 1984, and 3.0 in Compute! in March and April 1985. Corrections that updated 3.0 to 3.1 appeared in May 1985, and the full version appeared in a book published by Compute!, SpeedScript: The Word Processor for the Commodore 64 and VIC-20. A 3.2 update...
