The Qstuff* Spring'16 Release Frenzy

On the wake of the miniLAC2016@c-base.org Berlin, and keeping up with tradition, the most venerable of the Qstuff* are under so called Spring'16 release frenzy.

Enjoy the party!

Details are as follows...

Qtractor 0.7.5 - The Hazy Photon is out!

Hello everybody!

Qtractor 0.7.5 (hazy photon) is out!

It comes with one top recommendation though: please update, at once, while it's hot! :)

Highlights for this dot/beta release:

  • Overlapping clips cross-fade (NEW)
  • MIDI Send/Return and Aux-Send insert plugins (NEW)
  • Generic and custom track icons eye-candy (NEW)

Some other interesting points may be found in the blunt and misty change-log below.

Vee One Suite 0.7.4 - The Ninth-bis beta release


Hello again,

The so called Vee One Suite aka. the gang of three of old-school software instruments, respectively synthv1, as a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler synthesizer and drumkv1 as one drum-kit sampler, are released yet again in their ninth official beta second iteration (bis).

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.

As simple as a change-log may go:

  • Fixed the DCF Formant filter voice initialization reset.
  • French translation updated (by Olivier Humbert, thanks).

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.

And so they go again!

Vee One Suite 0.7.3 - The Ninth beta release

The Vee One Suite aka. the gang of three old-school software instruments, synthv1 polyphonic synthesizer, samplv1 polyphonic sampler and drumkv1 drum-kit sampler, are now released in their ninth official beta iteration.

All 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.

In common to all three comes the spartan change-log:

  • Avoid out-of-bound MIDI events as much as possible, coping with LV2 plug-in hosts that feed/run them in on border line circumstances (as reported by Thorsten Wilms, on suspected Ardour looping crash/bug, probably fixed already, thanks).
  • Tentatively safe defaults are being introduced to internal OUT FX buffer-sizes, as read from JACK buffer-size changes and LV2 block-length instantiation bound options.
  • Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's 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 0.7.4 - The Tackiest Gluon released!

Ahoy there!

Qtractor 0.7.4 (the tackiest gluon) has been released!

Y'all know the drill...

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:

  • Eye-candy warning: muted/non-soloed tracks are now shaded over the main thumb-view.
  • Faster and crispier VST plugin editor (GUI) idle cycles.
  • Fixed all core processing when any plugin has more audio outputs than channels on a track/bus where it's inserted.
  • Added one decimal digit to all percentage input spin-boxes on the MIDI Tools dialog.
  • Added brand new and global option to disable the so called "catch-up" default behaviour (cf. View/Controllers.../Sync).
  • Fixed some track control issues related to MIDI Controllers generic mapping (cf. View/Controllers...).
  • Try making Help/Shortcuts... dialog window modeless, as far as under MIDI Controller, Inputs/Outputs Connections window also gets accessible enough.
  • Fixed some vertical scrolling and play-head line re-drawing glitches introduced by the recent unlimited slack to editing beyond current contents length on main tracks view.
  • Added one decimal digit to the Pitch-shift spin-box on audio Clip/Edit... properties dialog window.
  • Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
  • Fixed local keyboard shortcuts on the Files organizer widget actions and context-menu.
  • Improved Mixer multi-row layout (patch by Holger Marzen aka. bluebell, thanks).
  • Fixed the Ctrl+drag/cloning left of a clip when towards near the beginning of session.

Enjoy && have (lots of) fun.
