Bidule is a realtime modular creation studio aimed mainly at artists seeking a new creative environment to experiment with. With Bidule, you create your own live music creation environment, inserting audio and MIDI devices, ReWire Devices, VST instruments and plugins. Patching them anyway you like, in realtime, while it plays.
Bidule has tons of modules of its own. High level Bidules like:
- Step Sequencer.
- Loop Player.
And also low level building blocks that can be used to create groups, or “macro” modules:
- Math function.
- FFT using the phase vocoder.
- Bandlimited Oscillators.
- Delay line.
Bidule features full ASIO support for low latency and 24-bit linear audio files read/write, and of course a 32-bit float signal path. Sampling Rates are only limited by your drivers.
On Win32, bidule can use ASIO, DirectSound or MM drivers. It also supports MIDI IN and OUT.
Bidule requires a video card with good OpenGL support.
