Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application, written in C++ on top of Qt Software's Qt4 framework, having JACK and ALSA as its main infrastructures and Linux as native and exclusive platform. Specially suited to the lone-wolf composer, arranger and (re)creative music-maker personal home-studio, it still hopes to evolve as a fairly featured desktop audio/MIDI workstation or at least, a prototypical part of it ;)
Saturday, September the 6th, I was once again pleased to attend the second National openSUSE Portuguese Meeting (ENOS), in a renewed invitation from Carlos Gonçalves. This time I had a chance to talk around the current Linux Audio/MIDI scenario and, of course, my brainchild Qtractor.
Howdy! Vacation time is now gone and the rentrée is upon us, at least on this hemisphere side of the globe ;) Silly season, beloved August, summertime it is. And before it's too late, I'm proud to announce that a new alpha has summoned to the challenge:
Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt4 framework . Target platform is Linux, where the a 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.

Thanks to Pedro Lopez-Cabanillas and Guido Scholz, this Qsynth release is now a reality. Main new features are the new rotating knob style options, first full translations, German and Spanish and last but not least, there's this WindowsTM all-in-one package available (includes FluidSynth port) for your (sick:) pleasure only. Please read below the brilliant notes from Pedro about this breakthrouth release. Yes, before's too late:
