This should now be more than a wishlist item as this is a major release that happened it November. The new version fixes a bug that causes DAWs such as Ardour and Qtractor to crash. This needs to be packaged immediately. If I have to do it myself, I will.

Hi Ross,

Currently Mathieu Trudel (cyphermox) is working with me on this. Will likely make its way to Debian soon at which point we'll make a sync request. Still waiting.

I tried to get this package into Debian
but nobody sems to be interested and I stopped uploading newest versions there.

For fully correct operation pulseeffects needs calf-plugins >=0.90.0. I found 0.90.0 already packages in Deepin and rebuilt it in the PPA (it was buildable only for i386 and x86_64, other architectures failed, did not investigate). I will try to not forget to port your package for my PPA.

As you are ubuntu studio team, maybe you can help in getting pulseeffects into debian and ubuntu.

Pulseeffects is split into 4 packages: pulseeffects, gstreamer1.0-convolver-pulseeffects, gstreamer1.0-crystalizer-pulseeffects, gstreamer1.0-autogain-pulseeffects,d

ebian specs used for the ppa are upstreamed:
