AudioMulch is an interactive musician's environment for Windows and Mac OS X (Intel processors only). It is used for live electronic music performance and composition. Other uses include mash-up performance, experimental music, sound design, music education and industry research.

AudioMulch is designed for live performance and improvisation. You can process live audio sources, control every knob and slider on the user interface using a MIDI controller, and rapidly reconfigure your patch live via an easy to use, intuitive drag-and-drop interface.

Music is created by patching together a range of sound producing and processing modules - including unique sound mangling contraptions, beat-based modules and VST effects and instrument plug-ins. Unlike some modular environments, AudioMulch's modules perform high-level musical functions so you don't have to create things from scratch using individual oscillators and filters. Other points of difference include its parameter automation timeline, ability to synchronise many effects to the global beat and the Metasurface, a unique effects morphing interface.

AudioMulch features include:

  • Sound mangling and audio processing modules including granulators, shifters & shapers, delays and filters.
  • Beat-based modules, including a drum machine and an arpeggiator.
  • Multitrack live looping functionality.
  • VST effect and instrument plug-in support.
  • A parameter automation timeline.
  • Powerful MIDI control mapping and MIDI routing.
  • The unique Metasurface effects morphing interface.
  • 256 channels of real-time audio I/O, multichannel file recording and playback.
  • MIDI & network sync with other software and hardware.
  • Playback and recording support for WAV an AIFF files up to 32-bit/192k.
  • ASIO and CoreAudio driver support for low latency audio.

I must say that I really love AudioMulch, but I'm really sad that it has basically been abandoned. Without 64-bit support, there are way too many plug-ins that it won't work with. I'm really sad that AudioMulch has been ignored and left to become basically useless in many ways. I haven't really found anything quite like it as a replacement VST host/sound design tool. It's really disappointing to say the least, but I guess I'll have to figure out what to replace it with.

It hasn't been abandoned, but development is slow because it's a one man show. There should be a 64-bit beta for Mac and Windows sometime soon. In Ross We Trust.

The last Win update for AudioMulch was in July of 2013. Still no 64-bit. AudioMulch is effectively dead. Too many plug-ins now don't even have a 32-bit version. Sure, a one-man show takes time to provide updates, but after 7 years, it's obvious he's moved on and will not be supporting or updating AudioMulch any longer. I've even inquired about a beta of AudioMulch that supports 64-bit, but none has been provided. It's a real shame. AudioMulch is still my favorite VST host/ sound design tool, but I have to accept the fact that it's dead and gone. I have to try to find something similar enough to it that I can move forward.

It can be frustrating when a piece of software isn't being developed fast enough for your liking. Fair enough. But I don't think it's helpful to declare it dead. Especially when a quick search on Twitter makes it fairly clear that that's not the case. By all means, find an alternative - if you do, I'd be interested to know what that is, because I've never found anything that really fills the same niche as AudioMulch.

For one, I don't do Twitter, nor do I have any interest it. If there are any hints of further development to AudioMulch, then out of respect for all AudioMulch users, this should be posted much more conspicuously. I find your choice of words very odd. After 7 years, you really can't frame this as simply being not fast enough for my liking. This a very important point that can't be ignored. 7 years since the last windows update, and still no 64-bit implementation/support. Other development to AudioMulch will be very welcome, but all I'm asking for is 64-bit support, nothing else. Just release an update for 64-bit. This will allow all AudioMulch users to move forward with it into the, well just the present actually. But that's all we really need right now. Thank you.

I'll also mention that I am willing to pay for an update to 64-bit support. Even if it's just version 2.2.6, without any other enhancements. Without 64-bit support AudioMulch's usefulness is greatly limited.
