Hi everyone, I'm looking for new outlets of spread the word about my software, and this site appears to be perfect. I head a small team that's been building free, open-source music creation software called 'The Music and Sound Design Platform' for quite a while now, and we recently put out some huge updates.
Music_SDP is made in Max 7, and the source code is available for anyone to download, but it exists as a standalone application for both Windows and OSX. Here's a brief description:
Inspired by the way guitarists connect effects together on pedal boards, Music_SDP allows synthesizers, file manipulators, filters, MIDI tools, and audio effects to be created, crafted, and combined in a linear or non-linear fashion. Processes in Music_SDP are loaded into modules, and pedal boards can be built to accommodate any number of modules. Modules can send and receive signals from and to each other in any combination, and can be connected across multiple boards. Modules can be controlled in real-time by the user directly or scores and automation can be created to control the changes.
There's a lot more to it than that, but I'll leave it there, since you can explore more on our website:
This is a project that I maintain as a labor of love with a couple of contributors. A while ago, I found a post on this forum where some members were asking if there was more information on the software's modules and functionality. I took inspiration from that post and added a features section to the site:
We listen to the community, and in our recent updates we've been adding lots of community-requested features, like VST support and CPU management options. I'd love to know what people on this forum think, since users here seem to be a really knowledgeable bunch.
Thanks for reading, and I can't wait to hear what you all think!
