DarkWave Studio is a modular virtual studio, similar to the tracker / modular studio Buzz. It allows you to load various machines such as virtual instruments and effects and connect them in a modular and straightforward fashion. DarkWave can load VST instruments and effects and it can also load machines using the DarkPlug API, which was custom made for DarkWave.
DarkWave natively supports both x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) versions of Windows with native binaries compiled for each platform. The x86 and x64 versions can each only load plugins for that platofrm, i.e. the x64 version only loads 64-bit VST and DarkPlug plugins.
DarkWave supports multiple processors well, with an aggressively multithreaded audio path that can utilize multiple processors or cores by multithreading. The program soars on a Pentioum D system with Windows XP 64-bit Edition.
The following plugins are included with DarkWave: MIDI Input, ES BrainSynth (Virtual Analog Subtractive Synth), ES SpatialVerb (Room Modelling Reverb Unit), ES DrumKit (Virtual Ananlog 909), ES Delay (Echo Effect) and ES Kick (Rave Kick Generator).
Alpha version is distributed free.
Windows XP. Runs better on Windows XP 64 bit versions.
