DISTRHO Ildaeil is mini-plugin host working as a plugin, allowing one-to-one plugin format reusage.
The idea is to load it as a plugin inside your DAW and then the other “real” plugin inside Ildaeil.
This allows, for example, a VST3 host to load LV2 plugins.

The Ildaeil name comes from the korean 일대일, which means “one to one”.


Ildaeil basically works as a mini-wrapper around Carla, leveraging it for all its host support.
Everything should be working except plugin parameters (none are exposed to the host).

When open, Ildaeil will show a list of plugins to pick from or the plugin editor if one is already selected.

If the plugin provides an embeddable UI, Ildaeil show will that by default, otherwise it shows a generic parameter list.
Toggling between generic vs custom/embed view is possible.
In the case of a plugin providing a custom UI that is not embeddable, Ildaeil will show the generic view by default.
You can press “Show Custom GUI” to open the plugin UI in an external window.


The current formats Ildaeil can work as are:

  • JACK/Standalone
  • CLAP
  • LV2
  • VST2
  • VST3

And it can load the following plugin formats:

  • Internal (from Carla)
  • LV2
  • JSFX

With a few extra formats through the “Load from file...” action:

  • CLAP plugins
  • VST2 plugins
  • Audio files (through internal audio file player, synced to transport)
  • MIDI files (through internal MIDI file player, synced to transport)
  • SFZ files (through internal SFZero)


Later on, in theory, it should be able to load the following plugin formats:

  • DSSI
  • VST3
  • AU (macOS only)

Eventually the following files could be loaded too:

  • SF2/3 files (through internal FluidSynth)
