Zrythm v0.8.694 has been released!


Zrythm is a digital audio workstation designed to be featureful and
easy to use. It allows limitless automation through curves, LFOs and
envelopes, supports multiple plugin formats including LV2, VST2 and
VST3 (via Carla), works with multiple backends including JACK,
RtAudio/RtMidi and SDL2, assists with chord progressions via a special
Chord Track and chord pads, and can be used in multiple languages
including English, French, Portuguese, Japanese and German.

Zrythm is free software written in C using the GTK+3 toolkit and can be
extended using GNU Guile (Scheme).
