Plogue releases Bidule 0.9
Bidule is a realtime modular creation studio aimed mainly at artists seeking a new environment with which to experiment.
With Bidule, you create your own live music-making environment, inserting audio and midi devices, ReWire Devices, VST/AU instruments and plugins. Patch them anyway you like, in realtime, while it plays. Bidule can run either as a standalone app or as a ReWire Device.
