QjackCtl 0.3.7 released!

JACK Session managerism. This might well be ahead of its time. And probably is. JACK session infrastructure and its promised functionality is still dormant in subversion source pits. However, good news are, no matter which flavor you pick, either JACK1 (>= 0.119.2) or JACK2 (>= 1.9.7), both already do it all to the promise. However still on their respective SVN trunks though.

Maybe this very announcement will get that all loose and out of the dorm ;) At least, I'm trying.

Meanwhile and until that ever happen, QjackCtl will be already here even though its JACK Session manager(istic) features will be just lurking to get out of redundancy. Fact is, this new source won't do much better than that of good old Patchbay, if compiled with existing JACK package distributions (latest are 0.118.0 and 1.9.6, respectively) . Nor even close. Actually, only when it gets ever compiled and built against a current JACK Session API it will take off. Fly high or low, you may ask. Well, may I say, it will only fly as high as many Linux audio application developers will do to embrace the daunting trouble of adding a few dozen lines of source code to their creatures. And to their help, chances are that Torben Hohn already has all the starters ready (ask torbenh on #jack @ irc.freenode.net; maybe he still has some fresh git repo/patch on the fridge:). Then again, this very announcement is being kind of a heads-up. Avast ye LADs!

Anyway, there are a few new tricks this old dog have been taught, besides putting the carriage before the horses, nevertheless... :)

QjackCtl 0.3.7 has been released!

That's it. Well, the uber-procrastinator sometimes gets over it. Sometimes :) Maybe there's a fine distinction between elegant procrastination and being just lazy. Tradition still rules: lazy enough to procrastinate no more :)

Aha, don't forget, you still can Flattr this ;)

QmidiNet 0.1.1 Released!

Well, for whom who have tried the last incarnation of this thingy, as released just two weeks ago and found that JACK-MIDI support is a piece of candy-fubar, then this post is in deed for them--thanks, you know who and what ;)

QmidiNet 0.1.1 has been released!

That's all folks!

QmidiCtl, QmidiNet 0.1.0 Out Now!

Howdy! It's been a long summer hasn't it? Bad news is that laudable spring cleaning has slipped a bunch and in fact, is still on going with no end on sight, exactly as the uber-procrastinator predicted! ;)

Nevertheless, QmidiCtl, QmidiNet 0.1.0 are out now!

This release marks the fact that QmidiCtl is now made available from the official Maemo 5 repository. So that you can download and install it directly from your N900. You'll find it on the Multimedia section. Second, QmidiCtl is now fully configurable with regard to which MIDI events are sent and/or recognized. It's not MMC-exclusive anymore. Third, QmidiNet also talks JACK-MIDI now. Although (very) experimentally. And you don't have to opt out on ALSA-MIDI. You can have both MIDI interfaces running as long as you please.

Finally, Paul de Vries shows us a magnificent video re. How To: Setup QmidiCtl on The Nokia N900 with Renoise. Alas, it's on Windows and using ipMIDI as the gateway back-end. No sweat :) If Renoise is to run on Linux he would use QmidiNet or multimidicast. Take note that the latter only does ALSA MIDI and doesn't handle MIDI SysEx messages as certain as MMC is. Kudos to Paul.

So much to tell, even more to do... then one could hardly shake, this long overdue. Lousy rhymes and no miserly times. And there it is: a bug-fix release, I'll mean to ease.

Oh crap! Let's get it through once and for all.

With huge compliments to all who got the nerve and report as many too much idiosyncrasies (nee bugs). Don't, never look back. There's plenty more ahead, no matter where you look, or hear, whether is up or down hill :)
