I would love to see a standalone version of aalto i could run fullscreen with a little audio recorder tucked away at the top to capture snippets on the fly (just like reaktor).
This would be a really great workflow for me.
Noted! This idea has been on the back burner but could definitely happen at some point.
When you are running under windows I can recommend http://www.hermannseib.com/vsthost.htm. A nice little stable VST- Standalone Host with recording features.
Andy BTW Randy. Whre are the T-Shirts? And can we except a freeware plugins series for WIN/Mac with the Aalto Reverb/Delay and the Kaivo Chorus?
yup of course this can be done with a host
i have a live template specifically set up for sampling the whizzbangery output from a single aalto
but… would still prefer a standalone version as well ;)
aalto would look beautiful running full screen also!
I want to make more t-shirts but so far this takes a back seat to the "real" work. freeware plugins... probably as examples for an open-source project I am working on.
YES! A standalone would be supernice.
sure it would be nice to have standalone MadronaLabs synths, but as mentioned there are simple ways to host a plugin.
Standalone with an audio recorder.
I have been thinking about a very simple host with an audio recorder. doing it that way keeps the number of versions of things I have to build lower, which lets me make more things.
What is a simple host? One users necessity is another's complexity.
Eg why a recorder, but no midi clock? What about send fx, given virta?
Fullscreen would be nice, for small screens, but a bit bare for larger ones ;)
One idea, perhaps integrate it into the soundplane app?
(soundplane tabs could be hidden when not needed)
So no extra app to maintain, and could make the soundplane act like a standalone instrument (direct communication to plugin rather than IPC), similar to what eigenlabs did with eigend.
It makes sense that a "Madrona host" would have Soundplane input.
For something very minimal, savihost is a pretty cool idea.
Ableton Link looks interesting for syncing with other apps.
Adding a thumbs up for this since it's over a year since the last comment! A standalone by itself would be very nice indeed...
Probably lots to do beforehand but I'm listening.
