RFS: vamp-plugin-sdk -- audio analysis and feature extraction plugins

Hash: SHA1

Dear mentors / Multimedia Team / Sam,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "vamp-plugin-sdk". This is
needed to build Sonic Visualiser, which is a very interesting piece of
software for music analysis. It's far more than a usual audio analyzer.
You can put layers on top of the waveform itself, so you san see beat
onsets, spectrum, prominent frequency, power, notes, chords, etc on the
same screen. Data displayed on these layers are provided by Vamp
plugins, based on the original audio data. See [1] for details and examples.

* Package name    : vamp-plugin-sdk
  Version         : 1.1b-1
  Upstream Author : Chris Cannam <cannam@all-day-breakfast.com>

  Section         : sound

Vamp is an audio processing plugin system for plugins that extract
descriptive information from audio data - typically referred to as audio
analysis plugins or audio feature extraction plugins.

Just like an audio effects plugin (such as a VST), a Vamp plugin is a
binary module that can be loaded up by a host application and fed audio
data. However, unlike an effects plugin, a Vamp plugin outputs not
processed audio but some sort of symbolic information. Typical things
that a Vamp plugin might calculate include the locations of moments such
as note onset times, visual representations of the audio such as
histograms, or curve data such as power or fundamental frequency.

Hosts using Vamp plugins include Audacity and Sonic Visualiser.

Although this package is not very useful by itself, I have a packaged
Sonic Visualiser ready for upload, which Build-Depends on
vamp-plugin-sdk, so Vamp has to make it through before I can send RFS
for it.

It builds these binary packages:
libvamp-hostsdk2 - helper library for Vamp hosts written in C++
libvamp-sdk1 - helper library for Vamp plugins written in C++
vamp-examples - example Vamp plugins and host
vamp-plugin-sdk - audio analysis and feature extraction plugins (SDK)

The package appears to be lintian and pbuilder clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 463754

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- - URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/v/vamp-plugin-sdk
- - Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- - dget

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards,
