I’ve posted before about our good friends at Plogue Art et Technologie in Montreal. They’re the folks behind the audio engine included in Sibelius 5 that helped make it possible for us to implement support for VST and Audio Units instruments and effects. But the project that is perhaps closest to their hearts is Bidule, a unique bit of music software that’s modular in design.
“It all started what seems a long time ago,” Sebastien Beaulieu, Plogue co-founder tells me. “David (Viens of Plogue) was coding a few VST plugins to add new toys to Ross Bencina’s AudioMulch. We would meet up one evening a week to code a few cool bits then head up for beer afterwards at the minimal techno pub in Montreal called Bily Kun, where most of the ideas for the future came into place.”
