Any chance for native Linux VST?

Post by antic604 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 8:15 am

I'm moving to Linux and selling all - or most - of my non-native plugins.

I'd love to take VM with me!

Is there any chance it will ever be ported there? :?:

Hi,

We don't currently have plans to make a Linux version. You could probably run it on Linux using Wine.

OP is asking for native Linux, not virtual machine implementations.

Of all the audio manufacturers I am impressed that Bitwig supports Linux (irrelevant to the question, but interesting anyway).

not irrelevant to the question... hi antic! it is strange, or not strange, to see people on different fora..

is there a way, bitwig supports linux, to load voltage modular as a vst, in linux, bitwig i mean? i don't use linux, but i thought i saw in a thread, that someone, had a solution for it. maybe i read it wrong.

EDIT: it maybe vst's made especially for linux, which can be compiled for linux, me thinks.

For now the only modular synth that runs native in Linux is the excellent open source VCV Rack wich has a huge base of users around the world and hundreds of modules for free. Give it a tray. Currently is a DAW stand alone but a VST version is coming soon. I use VCV Rack and it’s excellent. I think Voltage Modular and VCV Rack both are the software that best replicates the expirience and feeling of using a hardware euro rack. I also own Softube Modular but it,s not as feature rich as Voltage Modular. Softube Modular hasn,t MIDI learn for instance, and repositioning modules in Softube Modular is a pain in the ass....

o yes VCV rack runs on linux, but as vst also, when it becomes available??
softube modular, the latest version has midi learn... and yes the workflow of softube modular can be much better, hasn't that many features, but still a soft modular that i use a lot, because the modules in it a simply great, and i am used to softube modular. i use voltage modular more, but i make different things in VM. that's what i like. for me they don't compete but are simply more "modular racks" in my ITB studio...

this is my running gag (not very funny, i am not funny :roll: ) i have reaktor blocks (with 6 i think third party packs, or 7, a lot of blocks/modules), softube modular (also a lot of modules, but not the new ones, or i mean, not statement or monoment, i have bought model 72, and parallels.. and all the other modules..), and voltage modular, quite a lot of modules, and yes made a lot of sounds, music with it. also have VCV rack, bought some stuff that i liked. i have 5 DAW's (or 8 if you count it another way...). so i can lay back when there is a discussion about ableton or bitwig, vcv rack or voltage modular, etc etc etc. it comes with a price, but the peace i have found.... (it is cheaper then to go to india for some years...)
