The trade-free app of the day:


Carla is a fully-featured modular audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.

@musicians, if you want to step up your game, take care of your transitions. Every part of your should have a nice transition to the next one. Depending on genre It can be a simple fill, a riser, a swoosh, or even silence.

The idea behind? Keep the listener engaged, slightly getting his attention back for what's to come. Vary transitions, announce what's coming, you'll really take your to the next step.

I just installed #fire, an #audio #plugin from Wings audio. Haven't played much with it yet, but I think I quite like it.
Just the A/B feature is already quite cool. Need to try the rest properly in the studio though.

Fire is a multiplatform, multiband distortion plugin available as VST3. It has a bunch of nice features like oversampling, widener per band, several distorsion types, EQ and safe output. I'll keep you tuned.

Get it here:

mid side processing in bitwig: slot the the mid side thingy into your chain, then use the two new sub fx chains to do your thing. done!

mid side processing in cubase: download a free plugin (msed from voxengo), then start messing around with busses and group tracks like it's 1999 and prince just went out to get some coffee. really, steinberg, really??

VST3 plugin support is reaching stable status.
Finally got most things implemented, in a way that is similar to what is present for VST2.

The entire DPF-Plugins collection (besides 1 plugin) is now loadable in hosts like Ableton Live. The only exception I see are plugins that have optional buses (like sidechain) or types that Live cannot cope with (like pure generators without audio or MIDI input)

Should be time to make a new release then...

We added a new sub-domain for all #Bitwig users that want to host their music on a decentralized platform. (funkwhale). Big thanks to @sequethin who is hosting the instance ❤

need more people to take accessibility seriously

stop posting uncaptioned images and videos

FediTip: If you describe your images, you not only make them accessible, you also make them searchable, in case you want to find something particularly cursed again.

The best explination I've ever seen of why the argument against online privacy is stupid:

Free tip if you play bass, guitar or another electrically amplified instrument and want a good sound: turn up the mids. Turn them up much higher than any other frequency range and then turn them up some more. The mids contain the information that you actually want and need to hear
