semi-OT: usine


A new software looper and VST host.

I didn't had the time to fully try it but seems cool.


Here's the feature list from the manual:

Usine is a universal audio software especially designed for live or studio 
utilisation. Usine is made by musicians and audio engineers to respond to 
their specific problems in a lot of domains like live sampling, effect 
processing or sound design. Usine is a real musical instrument, flexible 
powerful if you like to transform, resample the sound on stage (not only 
push the play button of your sequencer!), improvise and create unusual 

What can you do with Usine?

. Build modular sound processing: creates patch with "modules" and connect 
them by virtual wires very simply.

. Analyse input or generated sound, for example pitch, peaks or dynamics 
create adaptive effects, modify any parameter in real time.

. Use the built-in virtual mixing table to mix the sound produced by 
different patchs on each tracks (up to 16).

. Create huge, creative or stupid audio routing within the mixing table. 
example, routing, a patch output to another patch input, or create a 
master effect send and return, etc.

. Manage 16 external audio sources (8 stereo) and apply different effects 
any of them.

. Create flexible Surround or 5.1 projects: all audio tracks are 5.1 or 
The output sound can routed to any of the 16 available outputs, depending 
your sound card.

. Create inserts patchs on any input / output channels. For example a 
limiter or a master reverb.

. Complete VST® processing: You can use any VST instruments or effect in 
patchs and modify any VST Parameter in real time. Create a front-end 

. Complete MIDI automation: assign any Usine visual object to a midi 
controller very simply by using the midi-learn command. Complete 
of motorized external controllers.

. Complete MIDI input/output management, for VSTi instruments or external 

. Load up to 256 patchs in memory in a "grid" and activate them as you 
in real time.

. Unlimited scene memorization, recalled manually or according to a 
smpte code.

. Synchronize patchs and VST plug-ins with a master tempo. Use unusual and 
absurd tempos from 0! To 10000000000!

. Record your creations directly on the hard disk in real time: separate 
tracks, inputs and outputs.

. All Usine functions are "real-time", and you can resample, modify, input 
sound on the fly.
Of course, save patchs, complete workspaces, and configurations, for a 
adaptation to different projects.
. Unlimited Undo/Redo.
. Use any sample rate, depending on your Asio sound card. Usine has a 32 
point audio engine.
. If you are a C++ or Delphi programmer you can easily create new users 
with the API.
