Live-Coding VST Plugins With JRuby

The Steinberg VST API is supported by virtually all professional audio applications on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX...

Opaz PlugDK is an experiment that allows you to develop VST Plug-ins using the Ruby language (via JRuby)...The plugin reloads instantly when a file is changed, e.g. code changes are audible immediately.

It also comes with an IRB console ... [and] wraps the VST API in a very nice DSL.

BTW: Sorry for the stuttering audio track. The screen-recording software ate most of the cpu cycles on the machine I was using to record.
