Software Description

EnergyXT is a modular MIDI and audio environment VST plug-in that can host VST plug-ins.

It's main goal is to enable flexible MIDI and audio routing between VST instruments and effects, but the fun starts when you load up the chord and/or arpeggiator component's into the MIDI chain. The master output can be recorded live and saved to wav.

EnergyXT as of the latest version is now considered as a digital audio workstation. You can create music with virtual instruments and drum loops, you can do multi track recording and audio editing. And it even has its own built in guitar effects.


  • Modular MIDI and audio routing
  • Supports VST effects and instruments
  • MIDI CC automation of VST parameters
  • Full VST fxb/fxp support
  • VST multi-in/out inside energyXT
  • VST I/O configuration. 2 x mono can be changed into 1 x stereo etc
  • Polyphonic multi-mode arpeggiator with unlimited patterns including notes and control change
  • Chord component, each chord will trigger by a single MIDI key.
  • Multi-channel Audio Part component
  • Dynamic mixer with cc automation, up to 16 stereo ins and 15 stereo sends
  • MIDI envelope
  • Live recording of master out, with save to wav
  • Grab screenshots of VST's to use as icon's in main window
  • MIDI patcher, will split incoming MIDI data into key- and velocity zones. Use it to layer VSTi's and make fat sounding patches.
  • MIDI CH filter for multi-timbral MIDI routing

Does it work on Linux?

if EnergyXT works on linux i will try it, but i dont want to re-arrange my partitions for just installing linux without being aware if it works without hassle or sees the io ports of sound interface. daw with a "vst-I" support for linux is just amazing wont consume cpu-ram resources too much. its 2012 now, does it work or not for linux, thats all i want to learn.

Very nice prog, BUT : I have

Very nice prog, BUT :
I have Ubuntu 10.04 & 11.04 and cool comp and have some problem with E-XT (demo), noise and delays, why ? I don't know, I'm a simple user. They are must to testing this DAW before sale. SHAME ! I don't want buy this prog for Linux ! NOTE: IMHO
But on XP it works very good !

P.S.: 59 Euro it's too expensive !

not compatible with Debian Lenny either

Tried installing in Ubuntu, it blitzed my Pulse audio install.

So I switched to Debian and installed the windows version using wine.

Guess what? Same problem. Now my computer doesn't recognize my microphone or usb hard drive, even though (being installed via wine) should not have done anything to my audio because it was supposedly sandboxed.

The windows version seems to work with Windows 7, but the whole reason I bought a podcast kit from behringer was the claim this software was compatible with Linux, which clearly it is NOT. FALSE ADVERT.

Doesnt work in ubuntu

EnergyXT2 doesn't work in ubuntu 9.10. This software is of no use. I got it as part of the software bundle that came along with the uca222 Behringer audio interface.

Not working in Ubuntu

It doesnt work in ubuntu, cant record (no inputs available...), cant import WAV files, come on, If you still trying dont charge for it, make a beta version for test!

I tried to install JACK, but if i can record in ubuntu in other software (out of the box) why not with this 40€ software.

It's good to have nice software for linux, but it would be better if it worked.
