is a plugin host. It works with both Jack and native audio setup in Linux / Win / Mac. It features a rack for linearly connecting plugins as well as a patchbay. It can run LV2s VSTs, soundfonts (sf2 and sfz), etc, etc

In addition to being standalone software, You can run Carla also as a plugin in another daw like

I use Carla as a patchbay and to use plugins and soundfonts on a live playing and practice.

@eylul I'm using Gladish/Ladish for the same purpose !

@Nomys_Tempar It is not updated a lot unfortunately (and Carla can deal with VSTs from another platform or 32bit VSTs on a 64bit machine etc) but Gladish is another great patchbay. (its actually what I used before I switched to Carla)

@eylul Maybe I should switch, but it will take time to test Carla, to see if it's fitting my ways...

@eylul you can watch a recent and interesting talk about this software, by Filipe Coelho himself (the developer who made Carla) here :


I was at the initial #SonojConvention this year with FalkTX and he has presented some awesome new features coming to Carla there, you can watch his talk here:
