The more they divert, the more maintenance work is needed, so we try to
keep Ardour and Mixbus codebases in roughly in sync.

If you want to be even closer to the edge: On the Mixbus forum [1],
there's a section "Interim Releases" available to Forum Members.

"Interim Releases" are Mixbus packages that allow users to view the
current state of Mixbus development between official releases.

They're beta-tested nightly builds. Around once every month (there has
not been one since 3.1 yet).

If you want to be on the edge, you can get the Mixbus source from
git.ardour.org compile it (like Ardour) and then copy the channelstrip
plugin binaries; but you're on pretty much your own there.
