Qtractor 0.7.3 - A Tackier Gluon is out!

Hello there and again,

This time getting ready for the NYE. Prepare to party, the countdown has begun... but first, let there be just one cheesier announcement ;o)

Qtractor 0.7.3 (a tackier gluon) is released!

Everyone is strongly invited to upgrade. No excuses.

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 (since last cheesy release):

  • Slight increase on the number of decimal digits for the plugin parameters while on the generic plugin properties dialog. Also applied to automation curve node value editing.
  • Unlimited slack is now in effect on editing over and beyond the current session or clip contents length, on both the main tracks and MIDI clip editor (piano-roll) views.
  • Ctrl+click and dragging the left or right edges of a clip will now make it spill over and replicate as many clip clones as it fits in the left or right horizontal extent.
  • Added View/Note Type and Value Type command menus to the MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) which opens the possibility for discrete shortcuts to switching views eg. Note Velocity and Controller views (after a kind request by yubatake, thanks).
  • Fixed the conversion and/or override of MIDI clip offsets when moving and copy/pasting across tempo/time-signature changes.
  • Fixed MIDI file track/channel duration estimator, which was giving quite wrong and way too short reads.
  • Fixed a drag-and-drop bug over the main tracks view, when new tracks were being inserted at the top and not to the bottom as is normally indicated by the floating visual placeholder.
  • Fixed LV2UI_Resize handle from extension_data(LV2_UI__resize), now passing LV2UI_Handle in first argument to ui_resize(), as found correct and needed for resizable/scaleable LV2 UI's, most specially to ssj71's so called Infamous Plugins, thanks.

Enjoy && Happy New Year.

Qtractor 0.7.2 - The Tacky Gluon beta release

Season greetings to y'all,

As cheesy as it might go, as a must already,

Qtractor 0.7.2 (tacky gluon beta) is out!

Quite frankly, there's nothing really stopping you from an upgrade or rather update to taste! :)

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.

Major highlights for this dot release are:

  • MIDI Track/Instrument bank/programs menu (NEW)
  • VST plug-ins preset/bank (FXP/FXB) files support (NEW)
  • Duplicate track menu command (NEW)
  • XRUN status bar indicator (NEW)

And, of course, Qtractor is now built to Qt5 as per configure default.

Hope you enjoy.

Vee One Suite 0.7.2 - The eighth beta release

Greetings,

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

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.

Change-log:

  • A brand new LFO BPM control parameter is being introduced, as a subordinate to LFO Rate, with follow/sync to current transport/host option (BPM=Auto).
  • LFO Sync (free running) mode option has been introduced.
  • A fourth DCF type has been added: a vocal Formant filter.
  • A third DCF slope/type has been added: the RBJ's bi-quad.
  • Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
  • Introducing brand new OUT FX Send parameter per engine.
  • Introducing brand new DCO, LFO Ring Mod(ulator) parameters (synthv1 only).
  • Special value (0=Off) added to DCO1,2 and GEN Glide knob spin-boxes (synthv1 and samplv1).
  • Fixed an old bug that caused an immediate crash on triggering any sample key/element with its (exclusive) Group parameter set to anything but "Off" or "1" (drumkv1 only).

QjackCtl 0.4.1 is out!


Yup, that's true:

QjackCtl 0.4.1 (fall'15) is out!

QjackCtl is a(n ageing but still) simple Qt application to control the JACK sound server, for the Linux Audio infrastructure.

downloads:

Change-log:

  • Probing portaudio audio device in a separate thread (by Kjetil Matheussen, thanks).
  • Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
  • Regression fix for invalid system-tray icon dimensions reported by some desktop environment frameworks.
  • New hi-res application icon (by Uttrup Renzel, Max Christian Pohle, thanks).
  • System tray icon red background now blinks when a XRUN occurs.
  • Desktop environment session shutdown/logout management has been also adapted to Qt5 framework.
  • Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
  • Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
  • Override-able tool-tips with latency info (re. Connections JACK client/ports: patch by Xavier Mendez, thanks).
  • Complete rewrite of Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
  • French (fr) translation update (by Olivier Humbert, thanks).

License:

QjackCtl is free, open-source Linux Audio software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

From the footnote department: for quite some time there's an alternate github.com repository which is kept in sync with the sf.net one. However, this doesn't mean that the QjackCtl project is about to migrate to a brand new hosting whatsoever: the original upstream source code repository is, will be, as ever was, always kept somewhere else still in this world and universe.

Enjoy && keep the fun!

It's Done!

Yep, it is.

All Q-stuff is now set to build on Qt5 by default.

No worry, no hurry, chicken curry :)

cheers

ps. everyone is free and revert to Qt4 nevertheless, just do it by ./configure --enable-qt4 ... at your own risk though;)
