How much do you get out of this "point-one" upgrade to
interactive modular software Plogue Bidule (OS X/Windows)? An insane
amount, including these highlights:

  • Use joysticks, mouse, keyboards, and other HID devices for MIDI controls
  • New audio looper with more options: graphical loop point editing, adapts automatically to meter and stretches time, and more
  • A zillion new modules, including 32-channel audio playing and
    recording, a spectral file looper (!), and lots of new MIDI objects
  • VST bridge, bugfixes on OS X

Head to Plogue and check it out.

It's beautiful — even visually. It's elegant. It's simple. It's
stable. It's flexible. It's cheap. In other words, it's not Max/MSP —
and, great as that program is, it's about time there was another tool
on the block. And it hasn't even hit 1.0 yet. Keep trucking, Ploguers.
