DarkWave Studio is a virtual studio for the creation of electronic music. The latest release of DarkWave Studio has both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries included and supports multiple processors. DarkWave is in the alpha release stage, so the program is not yet complete and is provided for no fee.
Digital audio software developer ExperimentalScene released a new alpha preview of it's upcoming product DarkWave Studio. This program is for the creation of electronic music using virtual machines connected together in a modular environment. DarkWave features Steinberg VST 2.4 support and can load many plug-in instruments and effects developed by 3rd parties. The latest version has added support for x64 platform systems by including both x86 and x64 binaries, the x64 binary showing superior native performance on x64 Windows systems. There is also multiprocessor support, with multithreaded audio processing.
DarkWave Studio Alpha 20061023 allows for the trying out and testing of DarkWave Studio by users before the commercial release of the shareware version. DarkWave has a studio for the creation and use of machines, which are connected together to create music with instruments and effects. A pattern editor and MIDI input allow for the control of instruments and effects. Currently there are the following machines included with DarkWave: MIDI Input, ES BrainSynth (Virutal Analog Subtractive Synth), ES SpatialVerb (Room Modelling Reverb Unit), ES DrumKit (Virtual Ananlog 909), ES Delay (Echo Effect) and ES Kick (Rave Kick Generator).
DarkWave is not yet complete and will also in the future include a sequencer and more complete machines and other features. It will be marketed as a shareware product by developer ExperimentalScene.
