javaDAW 5.0.3 FREE

javaDAW for Windows
JavaDAW is the first succesful music sequencer or DAW completely build in java. JavaDAW can be installed on a Windows machine or Mac. All the necessary files to run javaDAW are available in the .rar file. JavaDaw creates a javadaw home in your $USER_HOME directory with Projects, Export and Resource sub-directories. Download the Instruments and place them in the resource directory.

JavaDAW will only work with the java 32 or 64 bit JRE installed. To be downloaded from : Oracle (java JRE). The installed JRE determines which javaDAW version will be used. De wrapper will search for a valid JRE install. Do not mix 32 bit and 64 bit plugins in the VST folder. Best practice is to create a separate folder for the 32 bit plugins and a seperate folder for the 64 bit plugins.

(!) Be sure to install java under C:\Programs Files (64 bit) or C:\Program Files (x86) (32 bit).

javaDAW is FREE software and personal use is allowed. JavaDAW may not be used for commercial purposes without written permission of the owner (see e-mail adress below).

javaDAW supports 90% of the common VST2 32 bit plugins and a large part of VST2 64 bit plugins. There are tons of excellent FREE plugins available. Check out REAPLUGS or VST4FREE. JavaDAW is not ready yet for VST3.

(!) For the plugins of IK mUltimedia it is important to start javaDAW in Admin mode (select Properties > Compatibility > Execute as Admin).

javaDAW for OSX (Mac)
JavaDAW (Beta) for the Mac is released. For OSX the jnilib' s are used. The jnilib (64 bit from 10.7 on) should be placed in the /System/Library/Java/Extensions directory on your Mac. The jnilib has been rebuild for COCOA support and 64 bit OSX.
