64bit available on download page, see for 64bit components. 32bit will not work.

@PAFuser: added the 64bit downloadlink, thanks.

PSA: For older users, use the 32-bit version of v2.0 for now.

v1.6 was 32-bit only and v2.0 has a 64-bit version. I upgraded to the 64-bit version of v2.0 and found that most of my custom components stopped working because the component does not have a 64-bit version yet.

Easiest way to get everything working again is to use the 32-bit version of v2.0 until all your favorite components have a 64-bit version.

@vmars316 - I checked and OBS Studio is QT-based rather than Electron-based (though a different project called Streamlabs OBS is). I've updated the entry.

Yucca on 2019-06-12 11:35

As of June 12, OBS version 23.2.0 is a release candidate and not the current stable version. The current stable version is 23.1.0. If you post a release candidate, that should be stated in the description so users can know what they are downloading.

rb161 on 2020-12-16 23:25

My recently purchased webcam only works with one version of OBS so I'm unable to upgrade to use new features. I have always had problems playing any video except uncompressed and despite being able to play and edit just about any anything in other software on my PC. Other people have complained about the same issue (videos showing as a black screen) for years but the problem is never addressed by the developers. If you can work around issues such as these or are lucky enough not to be plagued by them, then OBS is nice, light software and recording and streaming work well.

RolloSONIC v1.1.2

Midas on 10 Feb 2021
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jun 2014
  • Suggested by RolloSONIC

RolloSONIC is a modular sound-synthesis environment with mouse-guided tweaking and real-time module interconnection. Automated control channel duplexing, a variable-bandwidth control pipe, and multi-device euphony support various possibilities. Like the great module racks historically used in making sound effects for science-fiction movies, RolloSONIC lets you add and connect audio-processing modules together, where the sound is playing the entire time so that changes to the interconnections and changes to the sliders are heard immediately -- just like with the real thing.

The program takes the idea to the next level by letting you incorporate your mouse movement into the control channels. Optionally, you can also incorporate your USB or MIDI (musical) keyboard controller and its knobs and sliders into the mix of control data.

The existing introduction video is highly recommended.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder, unless run from the %PROGRAMFILES% folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download RolloSONICv[version number].exe to a folder of your choice (except %PROGRAMFILES%) and launch.
What's new?
  • Changes include ability to set the on-screen mouse origin.

This new version has optional real-time modular output indicators, minimisability for modules, eleven glitches removed, several changes in usability and appearance, UAC (User Access Control) awareness for proper compatibility with Windows Vista and higher, and extensive internal changes to the module subsystem.
