Show-off my open-source stuff, mostly of the Linux Audio/MIDI genre

rtirq update - 2021 edition

Hi there!

New year, another rtirq update:

  • Got rid of all the deprecated sysvinit stuff.
  • Created README.md (by mxa, thanks).
  • Version bumped to 20210113.

As always, home-brew packages are available here:

Qtractor 0.9.19 - QStuff* Winter'20 Release batch #3


Season greetings, a third and last time,

Qtractor 0.9.19 (winter'20) is released!

Change-log:

  • Session directory auto-name option added to the session properties dialog, as convenience.
  • Loading and saving a LV2 plugin's state has been vastly improved. IMPORTANT CAVEAT: From this moment on wards, when loading any newer saved sessions into older versions of the program, all LV2 plugins won't get their state restored correctly.
  • Track colors saturation introduced as yet another eye-candy option (cf. View/Options.../Display/Track color saturation)
  • Fixed VST3 number of channels query/report.
  • Fixed immediate crash when loading untitled or unnamed Instrument Definitions files (*.ins): base file-name is now taken as default instrument definition name or title.
  • Tempo (BPM) entry may now be specified with arbitrary precision, to at most 3 decimal positions in fractional part, while integer whole values are displayed with no decimal point.
  • Added option to keep MIDI clip editor windows (aka. piano-roll) always on top of the main window (cf. View/Options.../General/Keep editor windows always on top).
  • MIDI clip editor status-bar labels are not stretched to whole text size anymore, most specially for the current file complete path.

Description:

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.

Vee One Suite 0.9.19 - QStuff* Winter'20 Release batch #2


Season greetings, one second time!

Once more, the Vee One Suite of old-school software instruments, synthv1, as a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer, samplv1, a polyphonic sampler synthesizer, drumkv1 as yet another drum-kit sampler and padthv1 as a polyphonic additive synthesizer, are here released for the (Northern) Winter'20 season...

All still delivered in the two traditional forms:

  • a pure stand-alone JACK client with JACK-session, NSM (Non/New Session Management) and both JACK MIDI and ALSA MIDI input support;
  • a LV2 instrument plug-in.

Changes for this special season release are as follows:

  • Better handling of the offset and loop ranges when in presence of very long sample files (applies to samplv1 and drumkv1 only).
  • Fixed display of old knob/dial values on status-bar.
  • Reduced formant filter coefficient slew rate, aiming to a tenfold DSP performance gain.
  • Get a chance on bringing Wayland into the picture when dealing Qt static-linked deliverables.

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.

Ho ho ho, here we go! 🎅

The QStuff* Winter'20 Release batch #1

Season greetings y'all,

The news are about this first batch of so called QStuff*, now being rolled out, seriously: QjackCtl, Qsynth, Qsampler, QXGEdit, QmidiCtl and QmidiNet, are all jumping straight and gloriously to version 0.9.0 for the (northern) Winter'20 Holiday season.

 

QjackCtl - JACK Audio Connection Kit Qt GUI Interface

QjackCtl 0.9.0 (winter'20) is released!

QjackCtl is a(n ageing yet modern, not so simple anymore) Qt application to control the JACK sound server, for the Linux Audio infrastructure.

https://bitbucket.com/rncbc/qjackctl.git

Change-log:

  • List only available backend drivers when JACK D-BUS is enabled.
  • Graph client-name / node-title aliases persistence have been hopefully fixed.
  • Get rid of those "JACK has crashed" red-herrings from latest Windows(tm) builds.
  • Early fixing to build for Qt >= 6.0.0 and comply with C++17 standard.

Inspired by multimidicast (https://llg.cubic.org/tools) and designed to be compatible with ipMIDI for Windows (https://nerds.de). QmidiCtl was long ago designed for the Maemo enabled handheld devices, namely the late Nokia N900 and promoted to the Maemo Package repositories. Nevertheless, QmidiCtl may still be found effective as a regular desktop application and recently as an Android application as well.

A more definitive and compelling tutorial

I just finished up a video tutorial covering the big topics related to Qtractor usage. I tried to make the case for Qtractor as a serious (perhaps best) choice for audio production on Linux. "THE Qtractor Tutorial" tracks a user through the process of choosing Qtractor in the first place, to downloading, through customization, routing and template making, through audio and midi recording, effects plugins and a wide variety of other important details that can get one more than merely 'started' on the software.
