Qtractor 0.9.20 - QStuff* Winter'21 Release batch #3


Hello all, one third and last time,

Qtractor 0.9.20 (winter'21) is out!

Change-log:

  • Fixed and improved automation curve recording, whenever playback is rolling (and also when isn't:)).
  • Fixed parsing/loading of large session bundle archive/zip files (.qtz > 2GB).
  • Fixed LV2 plug-in UI X11 (native) resize.
  • Make NSM state file names independent to session display names, keeping backward compatibility for old sessions.
  • Exiting, quitting or closing the main window while under NSM, now promptly asks whether to save, discard or cancel as usual.
  • Re-improved Mixer multi-row layout.
  • Fix incorrect destruction order for VST3 modules.

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 0.9.20 - QStuff* Winter'21 Release batch #2


Hello again!

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 again released as the second batch to the so called QStuff* (boreal) Winter'21 release season.

All delivered in the two usual 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 release are just a few:

  • When under under the NSM auspices, fix SIGTERM handler on exit and just hide the main-window on close (applies to the JACK stand-alone only).
  • Fixed sample loop when the DCA EG is off or disabled (applies to samplv1 only).
  • 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.

    And here they are again...

    • Graph items are automatically raised when created or high-lighted (incremental z-value).
    • Add a little but straight horizontal line-gap to the Graph connections.
    • Customize the Graph zoom slider widget to reset upon mouse middle-button click.
    • Add Clear preset button to Setup dialog.
    • Use default values for most preset parameters: sample rate, frames/period (aka. buffer-size), periods/buffer, realtime priority, port maximum, client timeout, word length, wait time, channel maximum.
    • Early preparations for the New Year develop(ment) cycle.

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.

    rtirq update - 2021 edition

    Hi there!

    New year, another rtirq update:

    • Got rid of all the deprecated sysvinit stuff.

    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.
