Jack 0.61: Linux Audio Power on Mac
An intrepid development team is quietly bringing the power of Linux audio to the ultimate flexibility of Mac OS X and Core Audio. It’s called JackOSX, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, now is the time: with this free software, you can route audio between any Core Audio-based Mac apps (that’s basically everything except Pro Tools), and take advantage of cool audio and music tools from the penguin.
0.6 was a major release, adding a graphical manager for connections. Jack 0.61, just released, adds compatibility fixes for applications like Skype (Internet calling utility) and Rax (must-have AU host). You can even use Jack to synchronize apps (a la ReWire) — hit play in one, and you’ll start the transport of another — though currently only Jack-native apps are supported. (Full CoreMIDI support is planned.)
There’s even more good news: thanks to Jack, free Linux apps like Ardour, SuperLooper, and Hydrogen are all coming to Mac OS X. Many of these are already running on OS X and will soon be ready for prime-time. Stay tuned.
In brief, let me say that again:
* Route audio anywhere you want, and (soon) sync any apps
* Run new free Linux music apps on your Mac
* Free download
