Buzztard 0.6.0

The buzztard project aims to provide a modular, free, open source music studio that is conceptually based on the proprietary Windows software called Buzz. The Buzz software is not really further developed, as the main developer has lost his source code. The buzztard project itself has no direct link to Buzz (apart from its concepts that we build upon). We don`t want to make buzztard a 1:1 Buzz copy. In comparison to Buzz, we hope that our software will improve in usability and features in the future. To allow migration for Buzz users, we are providing song-file import and buzz-machine reuse. The project`s objective is a music studio that allows one to compose songs only using a computer with a soundcard. If you`ve used tracker programs like FastTracker or the original AMIGA SoundTracker, that will give you an idea. The buzztard editor uses a similar concept, where a song consists of a sequence with tracks and in each track one uses patterns with events (musical notes and control changes). In contrast to the Tracker programs, tracks are not simply sample players. A song has a setup where one can arrange virtual audio plugins and link them together. Each of these machines can be controlled realtime or via patterns in the sequencer. The buzztard editor will be just one possible application of the framework we will implement. Tools like a dj mixing application or a live session composer are other things that could be built using our framework. The name The project name buzztard has been derived from the words:

  • buzz: the name of the original program.

  • bastard: because the software will be not just another tracker, and not just a sequencer - the aim is an all-in-one music studio!
