After several years of development, released a new version of a set of plug-ins called Calf . The new version includes about 20 new effects and plug-ins for mastering. The interface has been significantly upgraded, written documentation prepared by the new site.

New extensions of 1.2.0 are used in several projects. The first is FOMP - port plug MCP, VCO, FIL and WAH at LV2. The original version, written for LADSPA, intended for use in modular synthesizers, and more.
