Reader Neil Cosgrove sent word about an update to LNX_Studio – a free music environment for OS X that’s designed for realtime Internet collaboration:
LNX_Studio is a way of bring people together to make music with new and innovative tools. It’s all about creating and sharing ideas. There are many features in LNX_Studio and it’s strength lies in putting the creative process at the forefront of a networked collaboration.
This release sees some major changes, including the ability to design instruments and effects in SuperCollider. It has an automatic GUI system which is used to create and edit your own widgets. It’s ‘sequencing is driven by a fully featured piano roll.’
Here’s a video that demonstrates a real-time music collaboration using LNX_Studio:
