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

Back from LAC2007@TU-Berlin - The Aftermath

As everything in life, all good and bad things go to an end. That is also the case with the 5th International Linux Audio Conference, which took place at the Technischen Universität Berlin, TU-Berlin for short, during the four whole days, March 22 through 25. It is now over and I am now back home safely.

Chocks away: LAC2007@TU-Berlin

That's it. I'm ready and so are Qtractor. Some late bugs have been fixed, others been slightly re-touched, but I guess it's all set for throwing this puppy into the beasts.

Thoughts on Readyness

I think Qtractor has reached a fairly stable status, after some small changes and fixes. The major fix honorable enough to mention deals with MIDI track mute/solo switching. It is now working as expected, after lurking and annoyingly unfixed for quite some time. Disparate session sample-rates are also subject of a suggestive warning message and then tentatively converted.

MIDI Machine Control (MMC) Fun

This has been a great week. After a quick and brief brainstorming, I decided to implement some basic MIDI Machine Control (MMC) support into Qtractor. This covered the basic transport functions and, most notably, it changed the Rewind and Fast-Forward actions behavior, now resembling the tape-recorder paradigm. Or sort of.

My Software Ecology

Yesterday, a new blog article went online through Linux Journal. Shy as I'm used to, I can only think of blushing my face deep.
