AudioKit V5.0 Beta / Developer's Release

Build Status License Platform Reviewed by Hound Twitter Follow

AudioKit is an audio synthesis, processing, and analysis platform for iOS, macOS (including Catalyst), and tvOS.

Important notes for AudioKit Version 4 Users

If you are using AudioKit in production, you may want to stick to our latest stable release of Version 4 because there are a number of things were are still working out. But, since Version 5 is well on its way, we don't think new users should use Version 4 anymore. When AudioKit 5 is ready, we will make a 5.0 release, but even then a Version 4 branch will be maintained because of its large user base, and also because there are things in AudioKit 4 that are not yet available in version 5.

Most importantly, you must read the [Migration Guide](docs/MigrationGuide.md). You will also want to check the progress of the AudioKit 5 Release Push Project.

Installation via Swift Package Manager

To add AudioKit to your Xcode project, select File -> Swift Packages -> Add Package Depedancy. Enter https://github.com/AudioKit/AudioKit for the URL. Check the use branch option and enter v5-main or v5-develop.

Installing AudioKit via Cocoapods was supported through AudioKit 4, and will be reintroduced when AudioKit 5 is officially released.


In addition to the [Migration Guide](docs/MigrationGuide.md), our documentation is now automatically generated on the Github wiki.


The AudioKit Cookbook contains many recipes for simple uses for AudioKit components. More examples are [here](docs/Examples.md).
