Vee One Suite 0.9.5 - The End of Winter'19 Release

Dear all,

The Vee One Suite of so called old-school software instruments, are here and again released for the End of Winter'19 season...

Available in dual form as usual:

  • 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.

The change-log for this end-of-season are as follows:

  • Improved overall stability for current sample offset and loop range, cross-fade and zero-crossing property changes across UI's, eg. LV2 plug-in native GUI and a host generic provided one. (applies to samplv1 and drumkv1 only)
  • HiDPI display screen support (Qt >= 5.6).
  • A fake/visual piano-keyboard widget is now being introduced to the status bar.
  • Avoid destructing the possibly shared QApplication instance on LV2 plug-in UI clean-up.

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.

Qtractor 0.9.5 - A Valentines'19 Hotfix Release

Hello again,

Qtractor 0.9.5 (valentines'19 hotfix) is out!

Changes for this hot-fix release are as follows:

  • HiDPI display screen support (Qt >= 5.6; patch by Hubert Figuiere, thanks).
  • Fixed for DSSI plug-ins (eg. fluidsynth-dssi) loss of configuration state: clear internal config/state keys on release virtual method. (REGRESSION)
  • Fixed for NSM (and JACK) sessions not saving the correct file references/symlinks of clips that are recorded or created during the initial and scratch session.


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 0.9.4 - The Winter'19 Release

Dear all,

Qtractor 0.9.4 (winter'19 beta) is released!

Changes for this season are as follows:

  • Drag-moving and copy-pasting existing clips, while over the main track-view, now shows the respective (audio wave-shapes and MIDI piano-rolls) graphical representations, as much as possible.
  • For good and bad, session name changes now trickle down to respective audio/MIDI file names as well.
  • Audio output monitoring meters may now be shown on MIDI tracks and buses as a default user preference option (View/ Options.../Plugins/Instruments/Show audio output monitoring meters) and also in plugin list context sub-menu (Audio/Meters).
  • Custom color (palette) themes can be exported to and imported from external files.
  • LV2 plug-in UI GTK2 and X11 in Qt5 host native support are now enabled on configure by default.
  • Fixed minimum input value as 10% (was 1%) for audio clip time-stretching in the Clip / Edit... dialog.

rtirq update - 2019 edition

Hello there!

Another year, another rtirq update:

  • Restart rtirq service after resume from suspend (by Térence Clastres).
  • Fix for some Intel internal and USB stuff (by Samuel Pelegrinello).
  • Version 20190129.

Home-brew packages are available here:


Again take note that the rtirq init-script/systemd-service makes sense only on real-time preemptive (PREEMPT_RT) or threadirqs enabled GNU/Linux kernels.

Cheers && Enjoy!
