The topic says it all. Would love to contribute pull requests for review if the code is open and available.

No, RackAFX is not open-source. However, there are a few ways that people can contribute to the project:

1) create custom/specific plugins that would be useful - for example, the RAFX FIR Designer is actually a RackAFX Plugin that compiled directly into the code, but it could also exist as a DLL. Interestingly, I used RackAFX itself to write that plugin.

2) create static libraries that solve specific problems or implement C++ objects, for example a library of Synth objects.

3) create custom controls for the GUI Designer - with the new Advanced GUI API, the GUI Designer is open-ended - for example, a GUI control that acquires and plots data (an Analyzer!); I have one user who has made a GUI control that plots H(z) transfer functions, using the same direct evaluation in the FX book.
