Bars'n'Pipes AROS - alive!

After some years of silence, aros-exec.org user "hitchhikr" has released another update of his Bars'n'Pipes port for AROS!

Bars'n'Pipes was and is still one of the best audio/MIDI sequencers for the Amiga computer. In 2001 the source code was handed over to Alfred Faust, who continued development on the Amiga platform until 2009. In 2010 a first port to AROS surfaced on aros-exec.org, and after some updates and then a long time of silence "hitchhikr" seems to have started to work on it again, and has published his latest efforts only yesterday. Great stuff!

You can currently download the latest version here:

By the way, if you want to use Bars'n'Pipes on your classic Amiga you can grab it from Alfred Faust's homepage: http://bnp.hansfaust.de

And there's also a port to AmigaOS4: http://www.os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=audio/misc/barsnpipes.lha
