What is Carla?

Carla is a fully-featured audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.
It's open source and licensed under the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later.


  • LADSPA, DSSI, LV2 and VST2, VST3 and AU plugin formats
  • SF2/3 and SFZ sound banks
  • Internal audio and midi file player
  • Automation of plugin parameters via MIDI CC
  • Remote control over OSC
  • Rack and Patchbay processing modes, plus Single and Multi-Client if using JACK

In experimental phase / work in progress:

  • Run JACK applications as audio plugins
  • Transport controls, sync with JACK Transport or Ableton Link

Carla is also available as an LV2 plugin and VST2 plugin.
