> Carla 2.3 RC2 is here!
On 2021-03-17 by falkTX

Hello all, this is an announcement for the next release candidate for Carla v2.3.
Comes after a few issues were reported and fixed, specially important for Windows users where plugin discovery did not work.
The audiofile and midifile plugins were also finalized, the task I was waiting to finish before publishing this RC2.

For the changes made in v2.3 (compared to v2.2) please see the Carla v2.3-RC1 announcement.
The full list of changes in v2.3-RC2 is:

  • Add audio and MIDI file information as parameter outputs
  • Make audio and MIDI file host sync optional, enabled by default
  • Accept oga and opus audio files
  • Fix wine bridge build for certain systems
  • Fix (native) plugin discovery under Windows
  • Fix plugin search listing AU as possible type on Windows
  • Fix loading project with VST3 plugin bridges


To download Carla binaries or source code, jump on over to the KXStudio downloads section.
If you're using the KXStudio repositories, you can simply install "carla-git" (plus "carla-lv2" and "carla-vst" if you're so inclined).
Bug reports and feature requests are welcome! Jump on over to the Carla's Github project page for those.

Final note

Just a reminder that this is a release candidate, and not the final release yet.
There are a few known issues I want to fix before tagging v2.3 as stable, but it is very very close.
And of course, if you appreciate the kind of work I do, please consider a donation.
Thank you.
