Bespoke has just been released by Ryan Challinor; a gorgeous looking modular environment which appears to have an expansive range of possibilities. Not only does it look the part, it's loaded with features with over 190 modules for:
It is also open-source! Here's what Ryan has to say:
Bespoke is a project I started in 2011 as a way for me to learn more about creating music. Instead of putting in the time to learn the intricacies of an existing DAW, I took on a foolhardy exercise to try to build my own. The software is custom built by me and for me, hence the name "Bespoke".
Bespoke's core design is to break everything into separate modules that can be patched together in a custom layout, much like a hardware modular. Bespoke is designed to be highly customizable, with the idea that any of the custom layouts that you create will be "bespoke" to you as well.
In a way, Bespoke is like if I smashed Ableton to bits with a baseball bat, and asked you to put it back together.
It looks incredibly fun and well-designed. Sign up for updates here and make sure you check out the brutally honest pricing matrix.
