The CLAM team enraptured to announce the 1.3.0 release of CLAM [1], the C++
framework for audio and music, code name ''The Shooting of the Flying Plugins

Highlights of this release are:
- Automatic binary generation of LADSPA plugins containing the network you are
editing in NetworkEditor.
- Also a new simple API to code CLAM based Ladspa by hand. See [2]
- More FAUST integration into network editor: edit faust code, compile,
reload, view the svg diagrams (Natanael Olaiz GSoC)
- Lots of usability enhancements on the NetworkEditor: cut&paste, context
menus to connect ports, keyboard shortcuts, default double click actions, and
a processing tree filter (Natanael Olaiz GSoC)
- Annotator has also enhanced its functionality (Wang Jun GSoC):
- You can build a project that aggregates content from several extractors
- Extractors may have a config file
- Extractors can write back data (useful if the extractor is a database of
webservice and needs to upload modifications)
- New ProgressControl widget and paired AudioFileMemoryLoader processing to
support seeking (Pawel Bartkiewicz GSoC)
- A bunch of new 3D spatialization processings from CI Barcelona Media[3]
audio research group.
- Scripts [4] and graphical front-end [5] to generate a native CLAM plugin
project from scratch.
- Experimental Python bindings [6]
- TickExtractor example is compiling again (many thanks to Amaury Hazan from

And a lot of small nice features and fixes you will appreciate for sure.

download page [7]. See also: development screenshots [8], the CHANGELOG [9],
and the version migration guide [10].

We are also very excited on what next releases promise us. Some ongoing work:
