ForumsSoftware ← Linux support?


any chance of native Linux versions of Madrona Labs synthesizers? ...within the next ten years?

You owe it if for nothing else than for using finnish names. Kidding aside, it's a serious platform for music nowadays with plenty of commercial stuff on offer already. Madrona Labs line of instruments would definitely fit in.

I have no firm plans, but for what it's worth I get more interested in doing Linux versions every year.

Glad to hear that -- here's me hoping it won't take several years to get you interested enough.

I am also interested in a Linux version. My Linux migration finally depends on other software too, but I am always an the lookout for news and a Linux version is always a good plus point.

I am also interested in a Linux version.
Many Windows VST/VSTi plugins work with Linux. Obviously a native linux version is more appreciated.
With Linux you can build a true real-time hardware synth as an embedded hardware/software linux system!

i´ve purchased aalto and like it a lot. it´s one of the things stopping me from migrating to a dedicated Linux box (much more attractive now there's native Linux Bitwig)

I hope that in the meantime, the bitwig team can come up with some bridging plugin to be able to run windows VSTs in linux, inside the daw

I hear the desire for Linux support. Slowly moving in that direction.

Hey Randy,

I just bought Virta and I'm loving it so much I've started dreaming of putting it on a DIY hardware VST host for live gigs. I was thinking on a raspi-based one, but that would mean to have a linux/ARM compiled version of Virta. Not sure if that will ever happen... but it would be so cool.

I encourage you to keep moving in the Linux direction, even if it's slowly.


steinberg recently announced their sdk now supports linux from the box

u-he already releasing their new products under linux, seems like they have no competition there :/

any chance on having synths this/next year ? pleease ;(

Thanks for the info about Steinberg and u-he. I just don't have a timetable for this. There is no one more sad about it than me. I am the only programmer making instruments for this small company of mine and I don't have time to do all of the cool projects I would like to.
