MuLab is a creative and inspiring music studio (DAW) for Windows and MacOS.
It features the integrated top quality MUX Modular synth and effect engine and intendedly uses a basic uncluttered GUI.

MuLab is available as both a stand-alone app as well as a plugin for use in other host DAWs.
Both MuLab App and MuLab Plugin can function as a single synth or effect, or as a complete DAW composer, or any hybrid combination of composers / synths / effects.
Both MuLab App and Plugin can open the same project files so you can make a MuLab project with the stand-alone app and open it in MuLab Plugin in another DAW, and vice versa.
