0.9.21 Volume Automation not working on export


Currently using 0.9.21. In one song I have two drum tracks with volume automation - drums fading in. When playing in sequencer everything works fine. Though, when exporting the complete song, the automation of the volume of the two drum tracks doesn't play and so the drums aren't fading in. Playing the automation is set to ON at both the tracks. So, it should work but doesn't.

Don't know about previous versions. I composed and recorded this song with 0.9.21.



I have the same issue and can confirm it goes back at least to 0.9.6.

The workaround you suggest sounds much easier than what I've been doing - either editing the midi cc's for volume and panning in the piano roll which seems to hold on an audio export, or export the midi track (soloed) to a new audio track in the project. After that I would mute (or delete) the midi track and control volume, panning etc. on the new audio track. I'm gonna try your workaround next time.

hi there

guess wat? he news are it was all one pretty old and overlooked mistake of mine:)
after some deeper code examination, it was possible to nail it down, hopefully...

you may well have it fixed on today's snapshot (qtractor >= please test && tell!

Confirmed. It's working now!


I think this will make me keep using Qtractor. Also, this is the time I would like to donate some money.
But I don't use Paypal etc.pp.
So, could you please give me a number of a bank account to transfer some money?

Thanks a lot! :D

I am a very suspicious and cautious person.

So, I don't have any real life personal data (except my name and mail address) stored on my computer in general. I don't own a dumb-phone and I never will. My office stuff is stored on external USB drive which I don't connect to the computer when I'm online. I don't do online banking, I don't use pay-services like Paypal etc. in general, I don't pay by credit card (neither online nor offline) and I never send my bank account number via internet. I could send you my email address via PM at linuxmusicians. Perhaps you might send back you bank account number to let me do a regular transfer from bank account to bank account?

Usually and when ever possible I pay my bills cash and if not possible paying by transfer from bank account to bank account.

I really would like to donate some. I'm a poor man (by finance) and for some time now an unemployed musician, so it won't be too much, but I would like to do.

you don't really need to donate money, you know?

you may donate your time and acquired knowledge and contribute to the wiki which in turn will feed the official documentation; you can start with some simple "how-to" on something you don't see or lacking on the existing manual; tips & tricks are welcome!

you only need to sign up to a account and provide me your username for me to add to wiki editors board; then you may start contributing right away.

hope you find it more valuable.
thanks && cheers

I'm thinking about to create a sourceforge account, as this might be helpful for my own developments.
Though, did not make a decision yet...
