Qt4 No More

Hello?

Yes it rhymes and it is also an objective sentence!

Yes again, you read that right: Qt4 support will be dropped and ditched into oblivion in the next and coming days!

Qt4 is dead. Yes it is. And please, don't beat a dead (and buried) horse.

Long live Qt5!

Buckle up!

Vee One Suite 0.9.3 - An Autumn'18 Release


Hi everyone!

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 now all out for the septentrional Autumn'18.

All available in dual standard forms:

  • 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.

Where applicable, the common change-log for this Fall goes like this:

  • For safety reasons, all processing is now suspended while loading presets or program changes are issued.
  • AppStream metadata updated to be the most compliant with latest freedesktop.org specification and recommendation.
  • SIGTERM (and SIGINT) signal handler added to close the JACK stand-alone client applications properly.
  • Make the GUI not to show initially on NSM.
  • Current element sample offset/loop start/end parameters automation is now a possibility, on the LV2 plug-in only (applies to samplv1 and drumkv1 only).
  • Make NSM state independent to session display name, keeping backward compatibility for old sessions.
  • Give some more slack to schedule/worker thread ring-buffer.

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.

Let the rain come down!

Qsynth 0.5.3 - An Autumn'18 Release


Hello?

Do you remember? Should have been (back in) September, ... well, whatever...

FluidSynth V2 is in there now, rejoice!

Qsynth 0.5.3 (autumn'18) is now released!

QjackCtl 0.5.4 - An Early Autumn'18 Release

That's it!

QjackCtl 0.5.4 (early-autumn'18) is out!

QjackCtl is a(n ageing but still modern, maybe not so simple anymore) Qt application to control the JACK sound server, for the Linux Audio infrastructure.

Change-log:

  • Graph port-type colors are now configurable (cf. menu View > Colors...).
  • Make Graph nodes (ie. client boxes) transparent for yet some eye-candiness ;). Also keep the (Graph) current selection across port (dis)connections.
  • Drawing patchbay connector lines as (bezier) curves is now a difinitive and fixed feature (as long as no moreremains from the so called "Cambric explosion era" are still lurking in there).
  • AppStream metadata updated to be the most compliant with latest freedesktop.org specification and recommendation.
  • Graph auto-layout improvement for brand new node clients.
  • Avoid showing setup warning when no server settings have changed.
  • Fixed JACK D-Bus settings for MIDI driver parameter.
