I know it runs vsts, but I’m not sure if it runs them natively or if you have to run them through Carla.
Also, I don’t know if it works with windows VSTs using wine, or only linux native. It was a while ago when I tried zrythm out, and I was mostly using LV2 plugins with it.
Everything you say is true, but that “trickle down” you mention really is a trickle. Most of the yoububers I watch have patreon pages, or advertisers who they mention during the video, or a merch store, or their own creator-owned video site they’re hawking. Youtube itself doesn’t pay that much, but offers access to such a huge audience, that it’s worth it anyway. There’s no reason they couldn’t do all of that on Peertube (I don’t think), but why would they, if there’s no audience there.
I think they mean that a shave involves razors, not just clippers.
Using ask as a noun or gift as a verb.
It sounds like you’re looking for something called “vendoring” that was added to cargo in the last couple of years. If you want to store all your dependencies in some path local to your network, you can use the cargo vendor command. If you want an index like crates.io but not crates.io, then you want source replacemtnt.
Avoiding Voatification is really hard. The problem is that whatever platform you’re providing an alternative to is still there, and if the only difference between you and them is censorship, then all the non-extremists will stay on the big site, because that’s where their friends are, and you just get left with the dregs.
The only think I can think of that might work is to have another major selling point besides the laissez-faire stuff, like an emphasis on security, or no/limited advertising, or better UI. Even then, it would be an uphill battle.
It’s too bad, because I think having some sort of “let all voices be heard” type of platform could be a good thing, assuming you can get some sensible people to use it.
