Show-off my open-source stuff, mostly of the Linux Audio/MIDI genre

Qtractor 0.4.5 - A Friskier Demivierge is out!

SCNR ;) mostly yet another bug-fix-regression dot release, nuff said.

Qtractor 0.4.5 (friskier demivierge) is out!


  • Changing loop points while playback is rolling, with the play-head any near, was leaving audio clips out-of-sync.
  • MIDI event list view was missing some selected items with the very same onset time, now fixed.
  • When failing to detect a SSE enabled build, the CFLAGS variables are now properly restored to their previous sane state, preventing all subsequent dependency tests from false positives (bug#
  • MIDI clip editor (aka piano-roll) multiple selection has been fixed (again) re. move/paste-snapping consistency.

Qtractor 0.4.4 - The Frisky Demivierge's in the wild!

What? No automation, yet? Yes I failed the promise once again. So what? What would you expect from this self-called über-procrastinator? As sure is one to say that this is the Year of Linux Desktop (YOLD:), I'll give you the shivers and command this one will be the year of Qtractor Automation. No kiddin' ;)

Meanwhile, this new dot-release brings you several niceties, a couple of them have been waaay longer and dustier on the all-mighty-overdue TODO list than automation is. Rejoice! or else...

The Bad Apples Episodes

Klaatu kindly writes to say how he loves Qtractor and uses it all the time for podcast production and as one of the central applications for producing his two-person band. He has written two tutorials on Qtractor and covered it on two podcast episodes at The Bad Apples Linux Oggcast. Awesome! Happy Thanks-Giving!

Bye, bye CVS - All Projects Migrated to Subversion (SVN)

SVNFor whom it might concern, and pertaining the projects that are hosted in, good old CVS use is now stalled and deprecated. Better yet, it should be terminated from this very moment. All (my) projects, QjackCtl, Qsynth, Qsampler and last but not least, Qtractor, are now served in Subversion (aka SVN) source code control flavors. The latest of the bunch, QXGEdit was already made on it so there's no need for alarm on that front.

Major server flick - built on SUSE Studio (TM)!

Su-su-SUSE Studio(TM)As all things in life gonna change, sooner or later, this server of yours has gone under deep and severe changes. Still experimental and by no means definitive. Nevertheless is now live again, kicking briefly or else. You tell.

All made amazingly possible with one stop help of SUSE StudioTM.
