Zrythm - A free GNU/Linux Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) focused on electronic music and high modularity

Postby gimmeapill » Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:53 am

Hi Folks,

Just spotted a new DAW in the Arch User Repository (I didn't try it but from the screenshots it looks rather good).
Description from the site:

About Zrythm

Zrythm is built using C and the GTK+3 toolkit and borrows ideas, concepts and code from other projects such as Ardour, Jalv, Bitwig and Cubase. It is built with the intention to provide GNU/Linux users a full-featured alternative to proprietary DAWs and offers a unique approach to workflow that other GNU/Linux DAWs lack. Zrythm is free software licensed under the GPLv3+ and its source code is available on GitLab.

Easy to install - Packages are available for Arch Linux, Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora based GNU/Linux distros. See Installation for installation instructions.

Smart features - Automation curves, built-in LFOs and envelopes for automation, chord track to assist with chord progressions, and other cool features to make our life easier so we can focus on what matters - making music.

Clean interface - Making art should be a nice experience. Zrythm tries to keep the interface clean and pleasant to work with with a color scheme that is easy on the eyes and hideable docks.

I'm not sure if there's something not working with my system but it seems very young at the moment. I can't access the preferences (most items in the menu do nothing) and the size of the window is fixed although it looks like it shouldn't be from some of the options available. I couldn't make it play either. Certainly will be keeping a close eye on this though.

You can ask at IRC (only 3 people online atm). Undo / Redo is also not working at the moment.

Yeah, ‘rather young’ were my thoughts exactly. It looks like work in progress – but this means there is progress too look forward to.

Sorry for misleading you guys, I didn't mean to dump Ardour/Bitwig just yet

Yes it is a very fresh project.
The website is two days old, the gitlab master repo is getting updated daily, and there was no official announcement.
But for a 6 month old one man project, I think this is pretty impressive already.
Let's show some support ;-)
