QjackCtl 0.3.12 released, feat. JACK Pretty-names aliasing

Again, a classic needs no introduction...

QjackCtl 0.3.12 is now released!

Change-log:

  • JACK client/port pretty-name (metadata) support is being introduced and seamlessly integrated with old Connections client/port aliases editing (rename) (refactored from an original patch by Paul Davis, thanks). (EXPERIMENTAL)
  • Application close confirm warning is now raising the main window as visible and active for due top level display, especially applicable when minimized to the system tray.
  • Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
  • Translations install directory change.
  • Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
  • Missing input/output-latency parameter settings now settled for the D-BUS controlled JACK server and firewire back-end driver.

Qtractor 0.6.3 - The Armed Hadron beta release!

Ah, the equinox...

Twice a year a cherished planetary alignment checks in on schedule, once again.

The little rock gets another round from its warmy solar furnax, from which were forged. The pale blue dot gets yet another round and to no surprise, another tinier dot gets here around:

Qtractor 0.6.3 (armed hadron beta) is now released!

Release highlights:

  • Revamped mixer (un)dockable panels (NEW)
  • Plugin preset selection sub-menu (NEW)
  • LV2 Time position/transport event support (NEW)
  • Constrained plugin multi-instantiation (FIX)
  • Automation curve node resolution (FIX)

Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt4 framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.

nb. Despite the old Qt4 stance, but still recommended, Qtractor does build, runs and does it all on Qt5 for quite some time now. However, the former recommendation prevails as the despicable LV2 plugin GUI X11/embedding support through libSUIL just does NOT work on modern Qt5.

Change-log:

  • Make the mouse-wheel to scroll the plugin list views, when not hovering a direct-access parameter slider.
  • Mixer widget gets (un)dockable Inputs and Outputs panels, also with their respective title captions.
  • Plugin instantiation is now constrained as much to prevent any audio channel output overriding.
  • Existing plugin presets may now be selected right(-click) from plugin list context-menu (ticket by Harry van Haaren, thanks).
  • So-called "painting" over multiple selected event values, while on the MIDI clip editor view pane below the main piano-roll (eg. note velocities, controller values, etc.) is now split into two similar painting modes, whether the sub-menu Edit/Select Mode/Edit Draw is set on (free-hand) or off (linear).
  • Drag-and-copy of plug-in instances across tracks or buses (ie. cloning) now also copies the direct access parameter setting (ticket by Holger Marzen, thanks).
  • File/Save As... now prompts and suggests an incremental backup name for existing sessions files.
  • Zooming in/out increment is now augmented by whether shift /ctrl keyboard modifiers are set (on a ticket request by Holger Marzen, thanks).
  • LV2 Time position event messages for plugin atom ports that support it is now being implemented.
  • Attempt to break extremely long audio file peak generation on session close or program exit (as reported by EternalX, thanks again).
  • MIDI Controllers Hook and Invert properties are now properly saved for tracks (after bug report by Nicola Pandini, thanks).
  • A segmentation fault when closing with VST plugins open has been hopefully fixed (after a patch by EternalX, thanks).
  • Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
  • Automation curve node editing has been slightly improved in regard to time positioning and resolution.

Enjoy && Have fun.

Vee One Suite 0.5.1 - One second official beta release!

Howdy,

The gang of three aka. the Vee One Suite of old-school software instruments, featuring synthv1, as a polyphonic synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler and drumkv1, as a drum-kit sampler, are once again released in beta phase though.

The changes for this one second beta release are the following:

  • Fixed LV2 plugin relative/absolute file path state resolution. (drumkv1 only).
  • One decimal digit added to all scalar parameters and knobs.
  • Stand-alone JACK client ports outrageously renamed from a zero based numbering scheme into a plus one natural one.
  • Experimental LV2 Time/position atom-event support (Delay BPM).

Please, don't hesitate to ask whether any of the above esoteric babbles doesn't get you on to update as soon as you can. One special note goes for all the users out there of drumkv1 LV2 genre: the update is not just interesting but a must, seriously ;).

As usual, all is available in dual form:

  • a pure stand-alone JACK client with JACK-session, NSM (Non Session management) and both JACK MIDI and ALSA MIDI input support;
  • a LV2 instrument plug-in.

The Vee One Suite are free and open-source Linux Audio software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

The gore details are as follows ;)

Qtractor 0.6.2 - The Boson Walk Beta is out!

So it's summer, they say.

White bright and light pastel colors sparkling on every corner and turn. Cheesy and silly season, they say. Alas, southerners don't apply. Sorry about that. Of course I mean the hemisphere, obviously.

For whom it might concern, all anxiety has come to an end.

Indeed.

It all relates back to this last May 3, when a not-so-formal meeting (aka. workshop) took place while during LAC2014@ZKM-Karlsruhe, where some pertinent and undeniable requests were dodged and framed to a "soonish" implementation. And guess what?

Yup, the "soonish" are no more, or so I think.

Qtractor 0.6.2 (boson walk beta) is out!

Perhaps an additional word is due though, about the riddling code-names that are branding the post-TYOQA beta releases. They have no personal nor logical sense, I assure you. Perfectly arbitrary now. Everything in life and the universe is way more unconventional than just a name.

Without further assay.

Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt4 framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.

Release highlights:

  • Plugins activation MIDI controller / automation (NEW)
  • LV2 UI Idle and Show (>= Qt5) interface support (NEW)
  • Discrete editing of automation curve node values (NEW)
  • Missing audio/MIDI files and plugins warning message (NEW)
  • MIDI note drawing on tempo-map changes (FIX)
  • Automation curves re-adjusted to tempo-map changes (FIX)

Vee One Suite 0.5.0 - Officially beta now!

Greetings,

The Vee One Suite of old-school software instruments, primarily slated for Linux, featuring synthv1, a polyphonic synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler and drumkv1, a drum-kit sampler, are officially in beta phase now.

Change-log for the new release:

  • LV2 UI Idle and Show interfaces support added.
  • First attempt to allow a headless stand-alone JACK client application run mode, without a GUI, with option given as command line argument (--no-gui).
  • A man page has been added (re. stand-alone JACK clients).
  • Reverse sample option and parameter knob added. (samplv1 and drumkv1 only).
  • Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.

As before, all made available in dual form:

  • a pure stand-alone JACK client with JACK-session, NSM (Non Session management) and both JACK MIDI and ALSA MIDI input support;
  • a LV2 instrument plug-in.

The Vee One Suite are free and open-source Linux Audio software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

The fine print follows ;)
