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!

And now this:

Qtractor 0.9.14 (mid-spring'20) is out!

 
Notwithstanding some nasty crash-bugs being squashed away--hopefully for good--changes for this mid-season release are as follows:

  • 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).

Vee One Suite 0.9.14 - A Mid-Spring'20 Release


Hello there!

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 for the second time in the Mid-Spring'20 (quarantined) 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.

Changes for this mid-season release are as follows:

  • Fixed initial DCF1, LFO1 and DCA1 group enablement (GUI).
  • Fixed initial window title for the LV2 External UI.
  • LV2 Atom/Port-event host notification support has been implemented (unofficial).
  • Prevent execution of duplicate or redundant MIDI bank-select/program-change commands.
  • Early fixing to build for Qt >= 5.15.0.

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).

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.
