> Carla 2.5.2 released
On 2022-10-15 by falkTX

Hello again everyone, it is release day again!
Let's start with Carla.

Carla is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.
It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC (and send output back as MIDI too) and full OSC control.

This update backports fixes from the main development branch into the stable 2.5 series.
Nothing too big or serious, just a regular bug-fix update.
The more substantial stuff will come for 2.6.0, still a few months away.


  • Fix includedir/libdir variables in pkg-config files
  • Fix LV2 plugins sending MIDI events out of order when using MIDI mapping for control output ports
  • Fix VST2 all-notes/sound-off events after re-activation
  • Fix "use outer frame for carla-lv2" from v2.5.1
  • Correct jackbridge build flags, prevent LTO from being used in wine stuff
