Qtractor 0.9.31 - A Winter'23 Release


Hello again,

Qtractor 0.9.31 (winter'23) is out!

Change-log:

  • Fixed a off-by-one rounding error on MIDI clip offset and lengths that were leaving some clips unlinked on load.
  • LXVST_PATH environment variable now accrues to VST_PATH for Linux-native VST2 plug-ins search path and not taking over in precedence anymore.
  • Fixed an old mistake on custom aliased CLAP and VST3 plugin paths.

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.

Qtractor 0.9.30 - An End-of-Year'22 Release batch #3


Hello one third and last time this year,

Qtractor 0.9.30 (end-of-year'22) is released!

Change-log:

  • Plugin latency/delay compensation now in effect immediately after changing track option (cf. Track/Properties... /Plugins/Latency compensation).
  • Shade-off regions not-in-view from the thumb-views.
  • Improved MIDI queue time drift correction resilience and stability against in-flight tempo changes.
  • The main real-time process cycle now runs on uniform block-sizes, in strides of 64 frames per period, meaning a higher resolution automation, independent of buffer-size.
  • The internal main MIDI engine gets its ALSA sequencer queue to a higher resolution (PPQN aka ticks-per-beat) and not subordinated to the current session's anymore.
  • Although being deprecated to use, JACK Session support is hopefuly fixed, once again.
  • Better discriminate CLAP Plug-in specific note events and strict MIDI dialect event processing.

Vee One Suite 0.9.28 - An End-of-Year'22 Release batch #2


Holidays greetings,

Yet one second time and behold:

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;
  • padthv1 a polyphonic additive synthesizer.

This time released for this End-of-Year'22 season...

All still delivered 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.

A brief change-log applies for all in common:

  • Mitigate NSM sending lots of dirty messages on SIGTERM signal.
  • Although being deprecated to use, JACK Session support hopefuly fixed once again.

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.

The QStuff* End-of-Year'22 Release batch #1

Change-log:

  • Graph: whether to draw connectors through or around nodes is a new user preference option (cf. View > Connect Through Nodes).
  • Graph: Allow middle mouse button for grabbing and dragging the main canvas.
  • Make up visual immediate feedback connectlons.

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.
