Looks like a Linux DAW. Rosegarden?

Ok, found it... https://non.tuxfamily.org/

Cool, not even binaries were made by the developer. Gotta love Linux. Musicians just loooove to compile their own binaries.

I love the stacked mixer channels, I've yet to see that in any other DAW's. :)

No problem, even if you won´t like it.... but of course Reaper has an option for that:
Show multiple rows if size permits:

It's neat feature, just a shame about the other aspects of Reaper. An aspect I'd like to see in Studio One, given the emphasis of a single monitor workflow.

Not sure I'd trust a DAW with code like this:

Code: Select all

    /* FIXME: what was this for? */
    if ( bO >= nframes )
    {
        cnt = 0;
        goto done;
    }

    /* FIXME: what was this for? */
    if ( len == 0 )
    {
        cnt = 0;
        goto done;
    }
    
:hihi:
Kidding aside (could've been my own code...), this is some pretty impressive undertaking for one person.
And that might be the biggest problem, if that one person loses interest or for some other reason cannot continue working on the project, it is pretty much dead.

fese is right, it's a one-man project of medium quality. There is a good risk that you encounter a bug which won't be fixed or new bugs are introduced, too. Either way, not a good idea to start your own music project with this DAW.

Wouldn't surprise me if there's stuff like this lurking in the code of Cubase, Bitwig or any other closed-source DAW. For better or worse, we never get to peek under the hood of those proprietary DAWs... :phones:

That's why I passed on Mulab.

This said, large projects can also fail : think of Sonar, or Logic bought by Apple and no more developed for Windows. In the other hand a one man project, if it is open source and well documented can be enhanced and forked, so... shades.

Ableton once mentioned they have "over 800 automatic tests" checked before every release. Unit tests assure random bugs are not introduced to old code, and in fact Ableton quality improved over years.

So yes, some professionals do it professionally. Not every piece of code in this world is a pile of crap :hail:
