Qtractor 0.9.13 - A QStuff* Spring'20 Release batch #3


Greetings, just one third time!

Qtractor 0.9.13 (spring'20) is released!

Change-log:

  • All meters background color are now customize-able (cf. View/Options.../Display/Meters, color level "Back").
  • Automatic mixer grid layout (multi-row) is now in effect permanently--being an option no more.
  • Always show plugins and meters on track list/left pane as permanent standard now.
  • LV2 UI Request-value feature/interface support has been implemented.
  • Audio output monitoring meters are now shown/hidden auto-magically on MIDI tracks and/or buses--no need for some user preference option anymore (ie. View/Options.../Plugins/Instruments/Show audio output monitoring meters, is now gone).
  • Default track height has been slightly increased.
  • Track / Duplicate Track... now also takes a MIDI track's audio meters setting into account.
  • VST3 plug-in support introduced. (EXPERIMENTAL)
  • Fixed first bar/measure position drawing on the time-scale/grid across time-signature changes on the MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) (hopefully fixing issue #245).
  • Plugins and meters on track list/left pane, are now being set on as default--maybe going stapled in some near future ;)
  • Make man page compression reproducible (after request by Jelle van der Waa, while on the Vee-Ones, thanks).
  • Avoid resetting top or left position when zooming with mouse pointer is in main tracks or MIDI clip editor (piano-roll) views.
  • Make libaubio a build dependency on Debian/Ubuntu; also fix cross-build check to sizeof(float).
  • Bumped copyright headers into the New Year (2020).

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 0.9.13 - A QStuff* Spring'20 Release batch #2


Greetings 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 all being released now for the second QStuff* Spring'20 batch of the (quarantine) season.

All still available in dual form deliveries:

  • 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.

Not much of a ravishing change-log, just on the brink of utterly boring maintenance stuff:

  • Always keep the current sample loop-cycle on note-off, while entering a DCA Release stage. (applies to samplv1 only)
  • Maximum pitch-bend range has been expanded to 0..400%, allegedly to support some PME driven instruments.
  • Make man page compression reproducible (after request by Jelle van der Waa, thanks).
  • Fixed crash when showing the tooltip of a negative note number that results from dragging over and beyond the left edge of the virtual piano keyboard.
  • Remove -v (verbose) flag from 'strip' post-link command.
  • Fixed CMake build by adding missing Custom Color Theme (palette) form file (.ui).
  • Bumped copyright headers into the New Year (2020).

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.

Greetings, a second time!

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 all here and now released, making it for the second QStuff* Winter'19 batch of the season.
