Change-log:

  • On some desktop-shells, the system tray icon blinking on XRUN occurrences, have been found responsible to excessive CPU usage, an "eye-candy" effect which is now optional as far as Setup/Display/Blink server mode indicator goes.

QmidiCtl - A MIDI Remote Controller via UDP/IP Multicast

QmidiCtl 0.5.0 (end-of-autumn'17) released!

QmidiCtl is a MIDI remote controller application that sends MIDI data over the network, using UDP/IP multicast. Inspired by multimidicast (http://llg.cubic.org/tools) and designed to be compatible with ipMIDI for Windows (http://nerds.de). QmidiCtl has been primarily designed for the Maemo enabled handheld devices, namely the Nokia N900 and also being promoted to the Maemo Package repositories. Nevertheless, QmidiCtl may still be found effective as a regular desktop application as well.

Qtractor 0.8.5 - The Autumn'17 Release


Hello!

While this Fall still lasts... and before the New Year/Sun cycle comes in and sure will goes out...

And then there is the time when a couple of things that most may find well, badly interesting: one it's primarily and visually evident and adds up as an UI/UX thingy, while the other may land way more beyond the scenes, not so obviously perhaps, but having an impact on the short and not so short but long run. You tell me.

Truth is:

Qtractor 0.8.5 (autumn'17) is now released!

The short list is, or better yet, there are these:

  • File-system browser/tree-view (NEW)
  • Out-of-process/cache plugin scan (ALL plugin types, not just Linux-VST)

And the not so short list but quite the same information (aka. change-log):

  • Audio clip gain and panning properties are now taken into consideration when hash-linking (aka. ref-counting) their back-end buffers.
  • New out-of-process plug-in inventory scan and cache option, replacing the old (aka. dummy) VST plug-in scan option and extending its function to all other plug-in types: LADSPA, DSSI and also LV2 (cache only).
  • A File System browser and tree-view is finally integrated as a dockable-widget on the main application window (cf. main menu View / Window / File System).
  • Drag-and-dropping of session, audio and MIDI files over the main track-list (left pane) is now possible, allowing for yet another quick means to open a new session or add new tracks to the current session.
  • MIDI input/capture time-stamping has been fixed as much to avoid missing inbound events, when play-head is near the loop-end point and the loop-start is set below the absolute first half-a-second (<0.5sec).
  • LV2 Time/Transport speed information is now set on rolling when in audio export aka freewheeling mode.
  • Added *.SF3 to soundfont instrument files filter, on View > Instruments... > Import... file dialog.
  • A brand new View/Options.../Display/Meters/Show meters on track list/left pane option has been added.

Vee One Suite 0.8.5 - An Autumn'17 release


Howdy!

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 here released for the seasonal greetings.

All still 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 common change-log for this Fall goes like this:

  • Sample files are now saved as symlinks when saving to JACK and/or NSM session directories/folders (applies to samplv1 and drumkv1 only).
  • Opening multiple preset files is now possible, populating the preset drop-down listing, while only the first one is loaded effectively into the scene as usual.
  • Mono(phonic) "Legato" mode option introduced.
  • Desktop entry specification file is now finally independent from all build/configure template chains, whatever.
  • Updated target path for freedesktop.org's AppStream metainfo file (formerly AppData).

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.

Qtractor 0.8.4 - End of Summer'17 release!

Yes, it's been like clockwork...

Every two months or so, you stumbled with a brand new dot release, code-named after some of the same adjective-plus-noun (or vice versa) code-names. You knew the thrill and yet it lands no more.

First, the code-naming joke has been just a parody--or was it the other way around?--to some well known Linux-distro alimalistic code-name series. Then on it got rogue into some directed puns--remember the date when BitWig Studio 1.0 was first released? Yeah, the "Byte Bald" was there for the pun, on the very same day :)

Well, that's all gone by now.

Northern hemisphere seasons are the new norm and that's about two main reasons: first, it's where I live; second, due to an undeniable global warming effect pervading the globe, all geographical temperate zones are simply on the edge of extinction. More or less in a couple of decades or so. For the sake of brevity, I will just leave it like paying homage to those natural concepts that are facing an inexorable fate.

And yet, there're still the good news:

Qtractor 0.8.4 (end of summer'17) released!

Change-log:

  • Assigned MIDI Controllers to plug-in's Activate switch are now finally saved and (re)loaded properly across sessions.
  • Audio clip panning option property is now being introduced.
  • Out-of-process (aka. dummy) VST plug-in inventory scanning now restarts automatically and resumes processing in case of a premature exit/crash; VST plug-in inventory scan/cache persistency is now in place.
  • Desktop entry specification file is now finally independent from build/configure template chains.
  • Updated target path for freedesktop.org's AppStream metainfo file (formerly AppData).
  • Changing the View/Options.../Display/Custom/Style theme takes effect immediately unless it's back to "(default)".
  • Slightly slower but better approximation to IEEE 32bit floating point cubic root ie. cbrtf().
