Vee One Suite 0.9.16 - QStuff* Summer'20 Release batch #2


Greetings, one more 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 here released as the second bunch of the QStuff* for the (Northern) Summer'20 season and then bumped to version 0.9.16.

All (still) delivered in dual form:

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

Nothing much this time around, just some janitorial nitpicking:

  • Fixed deprecated stuff on an early preparation for Qt6.

The QStuff* Summer'20 Release batch #1

Greetings

Here goes the first bunch of QStuff*, QjackCtl, Qsynth, Qsampler, QXGEdit, QmidiCtl and QmidiNet, all bumped to version 0.6.3 while on this (Northern) Summer'20 season.

 

QjackCtl - JACK Audio Connection Kit Qt GUI Interface

QjackCtl 0.6.3 (summer'20) is out!

Change-log:

  • Clock source and Self connect restriction options have been added to Setup / Settings / Advanced (only enabled when JACK D-BUS control interface is in effect).
  • Added preliminary support for JACK CV signal-type ports and JACK OSC event-type ports (Graph only).
  • Left-clicking on the system-tray icon now simply toggles the main widget visibility, disregarding if already hidden undercover to other windows.
  • Graph nodes and ports are now presented with some gradient background.
  • Fixed Setup dialog Cancel (or close) behavior when Settings > Parameters > Frames/Period (aka. buffer-size) it's the only setting that's changed.
  • Early fixing to build for Qt >= 5.15.0.

QmidiCtl - A MIDI Remote Controller via UDP/IP Multicast

QmidiCtl 0.6.3 (summer'20) is out!

QmidiCtl is a MIDI remote controller application that sends MIDI data over the network, using UDP/IP multicast. 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.

Qtractor 0.9.15 - An Early-Summer'20 Release


Hi y'all!

Let's go straight to the real good news ;)...

Qtractor 0.9.15 (early-summer'20) is released!

Change-log:

  • Fixed MIDI tracks export that were missing the end-of-export tail parameter and bailing out always with default SMF format anyway.
  • Fixed VST3 component/controller inter-connection.
  • LV2 Atom/Port-event host notification support has been retouched, but still unofficial though.
  • Fixed VST3 audio-processor initialization/activation when a plugin has no inputs or outputs present.
  • Let main window pseudo-asynchronous stabilization re. menus, tools and status bars, just faster and immediate.
  • Fixed MIDI track monitor re-instantiation and reset.

Vee One Suite 0.9.15 - An Early-Summer'20 Release


Hi everyone!

Happy to announce 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 once again released for this not-so-pretty Early-Summer'20 season... ;)

Qtractor 0.9.14 - A Mid-Spring'20 Release


Congratulations!

No matter what others say, you are here and that's awesome! You are also here kindly reminded to update to the very latest and greatest. There's no better time for just that than pretty much now!

  • Export file type, format and quality are now specific options on the Track/Export Tracks.../Audio, MIDI dialogs.
  • LV2 plug-in UI GTK2 and X11 in Qt5 host native support in addition and alternative to libsuil.
  • Generic plug-in/Properties... dialog now showing each parameter/property automation status on a skeuomorphic aka. fake and tiny LED ;)
  • LV2 Plug-in Patch parameter/properties automation and MIDI Controller assignment/learn are now a possibility.
  • LV2 Atom/Port-event host notification support has been implemented (unofficial).
  • Fix clean-up of any recording leftovers.
  • JACK Transport latency is now taken into account for recording latency compensation.
  • Attempt to force correct audio clip offsets due on recording latency compensation are not quantized to MIDI metronomic time-scale anymore.
  • LV2 Plug-in MIDNAM support introduced.
  • Use Shift or Ctrl keyboard modifiers with the mouse- wheel to change any Direct Access plug-in parameters (issue #257).
