I really think this is a great program. It's completely modular, so you can set up anything with anything and in any order. Sound quality is pretty good (The Flanger is too strong though). It also has VST support for effects, but I havent been able to load VSTi stuff yet. The sequencer is actually pretty nice - except from 1 flaw; You can select mulitiple event nodes, making it very hard to deal with once you're into even a minutes worth of sequencing. Practically every control can be automated - Probably the easiest automation I've seen. Bassline isnt bad at all too. The great thing about this app is that it seems to be very CPU effeciant, so I have like 50 some effects & synths & disk reading - and all of it uses only like 60 percent of my CPU.

With an interface improvment, this could be so big!

Audio Mulch is a great program. I like it, and its limitations. The ability to control paramaters using envolope graphs are a breath of fresh air after working with programs like Buzz. I have used it to create very textural-type sounds, and it good to create other sounds as well - a very creative invironment. I don't really recommend it for song composition, but you can do that too.

i love audio mulch. that program is the futer layout of electronic music. once i figured it out ( long time ) and took the time to learn its quarks it is an amazing program that puts the power of my vision into full swing. i have lots of harware gear, i have lots of software gear. i find myself sampling my hard gear and putting my loops together into audio mulch. i cannot wait for version 1.0,. the new version "south pole" effect is amazing. i love it. what can i say.

I think Audiomulch is incredible. It has a whole new way of looking at PC music. Everything is modular, although not nearly as much so as, say, Reaktor or BUZZ. Of course its not as complicated, which can be a good thing when it comes to being creative. I can throw together an idea in just a minute or 2. Try that with buzz or reaktor. As far as DirectX goes, I dont miss it at all. I'm quite happy with VST1.0 although I do wish he would add support for VST2.0 as well. At this stage in the game, the program is a little unstable, I hope it comes together soon. I really need to send this guy some money....

Wow....this is definately not a "novelty" program. But it isn't intended to be a dance oriented softsynth (not that it can't do that). If you spend some time with this program, you will find it able to produce sounds that no other program out there can do. It is a wonderful platform for the developement of ambient, textural music. It also lends itself very well to live processing and improvisation. Spend a bit of time with the DLGranulator, and be amazed. This is my favourite music program right now.
