Qtractor 0.9.9 - Summer'19 Release batch #3


Hello all,

For the third time and hopefully the last in the current northern estival season comes the final batch-of-one:

Qtractor 0.9.9 (summer'19) is out!

These are the changes for this Summer'19 release:

  • Fixed editing and display of 'Pgm Change' events on the MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll).
  • Introducing tempo/beat-detection support on the Clip / Tempo Adjust... dialog (provided libaubio >= 0.4.1 is available); and now also featured with some rough visual clues ;).
  • Updated for the newer Qt5 development tools (>= 5.13).
  • Imply asking for a brand new filename (ie. Save As...) whenever the session file original sample-rate differs from the current audio device engine (ie. JACK).
  • Configure updated to check for qtchooser availability.
  • Fix MIDI through for LV2 plug-ins that have no MIDI output event/atom ports.

The QStuff* Summer'19 Release batch #1

Summery greetings y'all!

On the northern estival season comes the so called Qstuff* Summer'19 release madness galore...

Please enjoy the first batch:

jack_link 0.0.9 is out there!

On the other news:

Maybe not as compelling as any of those bad old Qstuff* but jack_link has made it to version 0.0.9 ... Yeah, and some weeks ago already, must I tell ya ;)

jack_link is a JACK time-base--and now also a transport--kinda-proof-of-concept bridge to Ableton Link, which already goes into its V3 incarnation.

In a (long, rather boring) sentence, this means that jack_link is now a bilateral bridge--read two-way--to JACK time-base master to Ableton Link local-cloud;) and vice-versa.

The usual caveat emptor rule applies. It may work well--if at all--on some JACK clients and incredibly FUBAR for others (!). To speak the truth, it has been only tested with--and you know what--yours truly Qtractor. And that's what makes me happy :)

Hope it makes you too!
