Hi guys, what native samplers like Kontakt 5 oder soundlibaries do you use on linux ? i would recommend native onces.


Hi, I'm using renoise, puredata and calf-plugins. There is also a not so well known sampler (called giada) that I run from time to time.

okay, but i am looking for some stuff that will work with Bitwig, so native linux VSTs . But thanks, i should have been more specific.

Eh, when using jack you can run this stuff with bitwig if you set up proper connections. There are also media-players (moc/mplayer) that will work with jack. One can route audio from homevideos (or whatever) through bitwig than through renoise and back into bitwig or puredata or calf and so on what is really cool for sampling stuff. Unfortunately it will not integrate nicely in bitwig-studio. Sry for bad english. Peace.

Atm bitwig lacks with some stuff like being midi slave.

okay thanks so far.

I do run jack, but i am looking for a setup, which might still work, if i change the OS. Not that i will in the near futurem but if i like to work with a friend or so on lets say his mac, it might get worse setting it up....

Eh, jack is like bitwig a multiplatform tool. (-;

And you can do really advanced setup with jack. Audio networks and stuff.


answered Jan 12 '15 at 19:46 by Yanneck (99)

yeah thanks. Have you experienced any kind of VST bridge, like DSSI-VST or so which works great for your needs ?


answered Jan 13 '15 at 14:27 by Beerhunter (6)

No, sorry. I do not use any vst-stuff, cause I have some hardware synths/effects that fits my needs (I'm not pro). I think if you really need vst for your work than linux is not the place to be. Why one should do workarounds and smaller hacks and stuff when new os is setup in 15 Min. where everything is pretty easy? Using bitwig you are far away from oss, so that can't be the opinion.

Again sry. 4 bad english. Bye.

I know that Bitwig is not OSS, and other OS setup where VSTs work a lot easier are around. But i just like linux, in all it´s ways, and i thought if there is such a great product like Bitwig available, there might be some ports of vsts or workarounds, to stay on linux....
