The latest edition of Obscure Audio Software:

Obscure Audio Software: Monocasual Laboratories Giada (free, cross-platform loop machine) – Steemit

In this edition of Obscure Audio Software, we’ll be taking a look at a free and open-source loop machine called Giada that is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux called Giada. The developers call it “your hardcore loop machine” and describe it as “a free, minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs, live performers and electronic musicians”.


Another installment of Obscure Audio Software:

Obscure Audio Software: Xenakios Hourglass (freeware granular audio processor for Windows) – Steemit

In this installment of Obscure Audio Software, we step away from the modular stuff to examine Hourglass, a fun (and free) granular audio processor. This is a standalone-only program, though it can load VST plugins. Main screen with a VST automation envelope visible Hourglass is more of a single-purpose type of program than the things I’ve previously covered here.


I’ve decided to start writing a series of articles about obscure audio software on Steemit, first up is Bidule.

Obscure Audio Software: Plogue Bidule – Steemit

This will be an ongoing series of articles, though I’m thinking it might only be every other week or so, since there’s only so many obscure bits of audio software out there worth talking about, and in the case of things I may not be familiar with, I want to have some time to get into it.
