Qtractor 0.9.31 - A Winter'23 Release

Hello again,

Qtractor 0.9.31 (winter'23) is out!


  • Fixed a off-by-one rounding error on MIDI clip offset and lengths that were leaving some clips unlinked on load.
  • LXVST_PATH environment variable now accrues to VST_PATH for Linux-native VST2 plug-ins search path and not taking over in precedence anymore.
  • Fixed an old mistake on custom aliased CLAP and VST3 plugin paths.


Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.

hi, thanks

no, there are no plans anymore, sorry

and yes, indeed, it's already there, the very feature you ask, in the git repos and snapshots (qtractor >=

it may be configured for either the audio or MIDI metronomes and set to Count-in in a number of beats (default is 4) before Playback or Recording starts rolling (from current play-head location).

refer to View > Options.... > Audio|MIDI > Metronome > Count-in for settings and Transport > Count-in for activation.
