Qtractor 0.9.11 - The Mauerfall'30 Release


Hallo!

Not making history or a revolution but as peaceful as thirty years ago ;)

Qtractor 0.9.11 (mauerfall'30) is out!

And the change-log goes as follows:

  • MIDI Instrument and patch, bank and program names are now correctly updated on their respective track-list (left pane) columns.
  • Avoid copying/replicating dirty MIDI clip files, for yet untitled/scratch sessions.
  • Transport/Backward commands now honoring edit-tail, loop-end and punch-out points, when playback is not rolling.
  • A session name (sub-)directory is now suggested on every new session properties dialog.
  • Avoid adding any extraneous clip replica when Ctrl+dragging on either of its edges.
  • When using autotools and ./configure --with-qt=..., it is also necessary to adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable (after a merge request by plcl aka. Pedro López-Cabanillas, while on qmidinet, thanks).
  • Fixing a potential crash-effect in switching MIDI output buses on tracks that are set to show audio output monitoring meters, is on going still.

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 0.9.11 - A Halloween'19 Release


Horror!

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 and now released for the global Halloween evening, and all making up to this mythical version 0.9.11 ;)

As always, all provided 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.

Changes for this creepy release are quite revolutionary;)

  • When using autotools and ./configure --with-qt=..., it is also necessary to adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable (after a merge request by plcl aka. Pedro López-Cabanillas, while on qmidinet, thanks).
  • Upstream packaging is now split to JACK standalone and LV2 plugin only: the former shared common core and UI package is now duplicated but statically linked though.

The QStuff* Autumn'19 Release

Hello there!

It's coming true: the old bunch of Qstuff*, QjackCtl, Qsynth, Qsampler, QXGEdit, QmidiCtl and QmidiNet, are all catching up and aligning to the magical version 0.6.0 :)

That's all pretty much and enough for now ;)...

 

QjackCtl - JACK Audio Connection Kit Qt GUI Interface

  • An 'Apply' button as been added to the Setup dialog; ask whether to restart the JACK audio server, if any settings are changed.
  • Added alternate yet non-official CMake build option.
  • Fix HiDPI display screen effective support (Qt >= 5.6).
  • Command line arguments (--start, --preset=[label] and --active-patchbay=[path]) are passed and take effect on the current singleton/unique application instance, when enabled and already running.
  • System-tray icon context menu has been refactored to be exactly the same as the main-window context menu that is re-instantiated on demand.
  • Make sure compiler flags comply to c++11 as standard.

Qtractor 0.9.10 - An Autumn'19 Release


Wholly greetings,

Without any further delay, here it goes:

Qtractor 0.9.10 (autumn'19) is now released!

The shortest and maybe TL;DR change-log for this northern Autumn'19 release goes like this:

  • Fixed the potential crash-effect in switching MIDI output buses on tracks that are set to show audio output monitoring meters.
  • Fixed initial session tempo override when importing a standard MIDI file (as reported on issue #230).
  • An alternate time-signature/meter option is being served to the MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) and allowing for some poly-rhythm/meter scenarios on a per MIDI clip basis.
  • Fixed MIDI "overdub" recording on offset clips.
  • MIDI bank and program settings now propagating to all MIDI track's clips resp.
  • Fixed MIDI file format default setting other than SMF Format 0.
  • Escape key may now be used to reset time and tempo/time-signature spin-box controls.
  • Play-head time and tempo/time-signature controls are now featured in MIDI clip editor toolbars (aka. piano-roll); time display format is also separated from the tracks main application view and defaults to BBT as being most convenient.
  • All items in the MIDI clip editor's event list are now enabled, selectable and editable, no matter the filter settings for the event views.
  • Added alternate yet non-official CMake build option.
  • Improved MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) position and size persistence across session state.
  • Fix HiDPI display screen effective support (Qt >= 5.6).
  • Mixer, Connections and MIDI clip editor top-level windows shall have no parent, unless when set as always-on-top tool windows. (REGRESSION)
  • Make sure compiler flags comply to c++11 as standard.

Vee One Suite 0.9.10 - An Early Fall'19 Release
