QmidiCtl - A MIDI Remote Controller via UDP/IP Multicast

QmidiCtl 0.2.0 released!

QmidiCtl is a MIDI remote controller application that sends MIDI data over the network, using UDP/IP multicast. Inspired by multimidicast ( and designed to be compatible with ipMIDI for Windows ( 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.

Vee One Suite 0.6.1 - A fourth beta release


The Vee One Suite of this old-school software instruments, also self-indicted as the gang of three usual suspects thou being: synthv1, as one polyphonic synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler and drumkv1, as one drum-kit sampler, now released into the world, yet still beta.

Not much of any audible changes I must say for this so called fourth beta release though it goes as follows:

  • Added application description as's AppData.
  • Introducing LV2 port-groups (as proposed by Amadeus Folego aka. badosu, thanks).
  • Improved envelope widget nodes click-and-drag precision.
  • Introducing a brand new user preference on eye-candy: cf. Help/Configure.../Options/Custom style theme (applies to the JACK stand-alone client only though).
  • Envelope and filter now rendered with anti-aliased lines.
  • Fixed a Qt5 FTBFS re. QHeaderView::set[Section]ResizeMode().

QXGEdit 0.2.0 is out!

Every couple of years I decide to do some spring cleaning, a bit early this time, perhaps...

And then again I stepped into this kind of pure nineties junkyard synth that's still powering on here and then with great joy. And that's happening on every PCI sound-card slot that can be found around here. All about that Yamaha DB50XG (nb. fact is Yamaha doesn't list it on the product archives anymore, so this might be all just archaeology by now...)

Nevertheless, here it goes again:

QXGEdit 0.2.0 is out!

QXGEdit is a live XG instrument editor, specialized on editing MIDI System Exclusive files (.syx) for the Yamaha DB50XG and thus probably a baseline for many other XG devices.
