Frequently Asked Questions


Q. What's the current development status?

Zrythm is in the early alpha stage. Many essential features are already implemented but we do not recommend it for production yet. You are welcome to test each release and provide us with feedback if you would like to help speed things up.

Q. What plugin protocols are supported?

LV2 at the moment. VST2 and VST3 coming soon.

Q. I'm building from source and I want to run Zrythm without installing

Run glib-compile-schemas data/ and then run zrythm using GSETTINGS_SCHEMA_DIR=data ./build/zrythm

Q. I get unmet dependencies when installing on Ubuntu

Enable the universe repository: sudo add-apt-repository universe

Q. I'm using Windows

In addition to being malware, Windows is badly designed, is a pain to use as a developer and as a user, is too slow and requires many hacks to package Zrythm for it and thus wastes a lot of our precious time (and sanity) so we decided to drop support for it. Consider upgrading to a better OS that respects your freedom.
