Vee One Suite 0.9.4 - A Late Autumn'18 Release


Greetings!

The Vee One Suite of so called 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 being released for the late in Autumn'18.

All still available in dual format:

  • 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 changes for this special season are the following:

  • Make sure all LV2 state sample file references are resolved to their original and canonical file-paths (not symlinks). (applies to samplv1 and drumkv1 only)
  • Fixed a severe bug on saving the LV2 plug-in state: the sample file reference was being saved with the wrong name identifier and thus gone missing on every session or state reload thereafter.(applies to samplv1 only).
  • Sample waveform drawing is a bit more keen to precision.
  • Old deprecated Qt4 build support is no more.
  • Normalized wavetable oscillator phasors.
  • Added missing include <unistd.h> to shut up some stricter compilers from build failures.

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 0.9.3 - The End of Autumn'18 Release

  • Recover audio and MIDI dedicated port connections when changing any of the Metronome, Player and/or Control option settings.
  • Fix MIDI track (and bus) bank/program reset to none.
  • Anti-glitch micro-fade-in is disabled on audio clips with zero offset.
  • Audio and MIDI file players also stopped on Transport / Panic command.
  • LV2 plug-in UI GTK2 and X11 in Qt5 host native support are now disabled on default configure.
  • Get rid of symlink duplicates on the default plugin search paths.
