Qtractor 0.9.1 - A Pre-LAC2018 Release Frenzy Finale!


Hello again,

The Pre-LAC2018 release frenzy is now complete...

Qtractor 0.9.1 (pre-lac2018 beta) is out!

Change-log:

  • Displaying MIDI note(on) events as diamonds instead of simple rectangles (aka. Drum Mode) is now being introduced as an optional MIDI track property (Drums) and as a MIDI clip editor (piano-roll) visual option (cf. View/Drum Mode).
  • Extended multi-selection is now supported on all the Connections client/port lists, allowing for multiple (dis)connections at once.
  • Added LV2 UI sample-rate option support.
  • Always reset all internal dedicated MIDI controllers, eg. MIDI track volume (CC#7) and panning (CC#10), on Transport/Panic and after rendering export to audio (ie. Track/Export Tracks/Audio...) as needed to reset MIDI instrument plugins to nominal session state.
  • Fix, detect and preserve MIDI Bank-select method across MIDI track/clips editing operations.
  • Fixed MIDI track and clip note min/max display range while recording and also when duplicating tracks.
  • Added "All files (*.*)" filter to every file requestor dialog, wherever missing.
  • The tiny zoom-magnifier icons have been revamped.

Description:

Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt 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.

Change-log:

  • Respect ALSA Sequencer support option also on Graph view.
  • Regression to new Graph node/ports sorting comparator; also fixed multiple and many port removals, most probably causing it to crash due to double-free/delete potential.
  • Fixed the automatic aggregation of new Graph client nodes that are split as either input or output only (ie. system, terminal, physical or otherwise non-duplex nodes).
  • Added View/Zoom Range mode option to Graph tool.

  • Disable singleton/unique application instance setup logic when the display server platform is not X11.

Qtractor 0.9.0 - An Early Spring'18 Release


Hello?

Qtractor 0.9.0 (early spring'18 beta) is now released!

The change-log for this spring-time release goes as follows:

  • New View/Options.../Plugins/Experimental/Show plugins on track list/left pane option is in effect on tracks that are tall enough in height for their plugins list to fit on the Bus column.
  • Fixed a day-zero bug over the MIDI Insert (Send/Return) pseudo-plugin, which was duplicating MIDI events onto the next LV2 plugin in chain, causing strange hanging notes, mutes, retriggerings and what not.
  • MIDI track and clip note min/max range display now fixed.
  • MIDI Program Change events (PC) now have their proper program number as parameter, instead of value, on the internal MIDI event representation.
  • Merging MIDI clips while on SMF Format 0 has been fixed: was merging always onto the same MIDI channel (2), most often the wrong one, resulting in an empty or blank clip.
  • When importing from standard MIDI files (SMF), set track names from Mtrk TRACKNAME meta-events instead of filename.
  • Avoid asking to save as to existing or just newly created clip file-names, whenever possible.
  • Disable singleton/unique application instance setup logic when the display server platform is not X11.
  • Whether to use native file browser/requester dialogs is now an effective option when launching under NSM session management (was once disabled initially).
  • Content files are now saved as symlinks when saving to JACK and/or NSM session directories/folders.
  • Trying to get CC14 MSB+LSB (course+fine) running status on, no matter whether each pairing event are under 200ms apart.
  • Possible VST plug-in GUI reparenting hack/fix on Qt5/Xcb.

Vee One Suite 0.9.0 - The End of Winter'18 release


Ahoy there!

The Vee One Suite of so called old-school software instruments, synthv1, as a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler synthesizer, drumkv1 as yet another drum-kit sampler and padthv1 as a polyphonic additive synthesizer, are once again released just before the season ends.

All available still 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 changes for this end-of-season goes as follows:

  • Introducing Scala micro-tuning classes, borrowed, stirred and refactored from original Nick Dowell's amsynth code, all under the GPL umbrella, of course.
  • An internal note-key/frequency indirection table is now in place, as a baseline for any micro-tuning implementations.
  • Whether to use native file browser/requester dialogs is now an effective option when launching under NSM session management (was once disabled initially).
  • Initializing and/or requesting a New blank preset doesn't open a sample file picker dialog anymore as it was more than nagging while under on NSM sessions. (applies to samplv1 only).
  • Trying to get CC14 MSB+LSB (course+fine) running status on, no matter whether each pairing event are under 200ms apart.
  • A little hardening on the configure (autoconf) macro side.

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