[LAA] MIDA 0.3.0

laa - 1 hour 4 min ago
From: Mark Karpov <markkarpov@...>
Subject: [LAA] MIDA 0.3.0
Date: Dec 8, 10:35 am 2014

I would like to announce MIDA, version 0.3.0.

Short description:

MIDA is a minimalistic language for algorithmic generation of MIDI
files. MIDA is not interactive in sense that you cannot control result
of its activity in real time, it is intended for producers and should be
used with a DAW. MIDA can help you create variative elements in your
music in a very simple way. Since MIDI can control a lot of different
instruments, power of MIDA is truly great.

Main reason for MIDA development is to create software tool that can be
used in such a way that does not change established workflow, so people
could use familiar plugins and software instruments.

Unlike many programs in field of algorithmic composition, MIDA does not
aim creating complex or peculiar algorithms, because complexity of such
systems rarely translates into emotional impact directly. Instead, MIDA
gives you simple and effective tool to vary parameters of MIDI events.

MIDA does not have GUI, because it doesn't need one. It can work as REPL
(interactive mode) or as translator from source to MIDI files (batch
mode).

MIDA repository is here: https://github.com/mrkkrp/mida

Documentation online: http://mrkkrp.github.io/mida/

Although MIDA is created on GNU/Linux and for GNU/Linux, it can be
compiled on many platforms (but only Windows version is tested).

MIDA is licensed under GNU GPL version 3, it's free software.

Regards,

-- Mark Karpov

[LAA] Yoshimi V 1.3.0

laa - 1 hour 4 min ago
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] Yoshimi V 1.3.0
Date: Dec 5, 11:15 pm 2014

There it is, all shiny and bright :)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/yoshimi

We have the usual crop of optimisations and (fewer) bugfixes.
There are further improvements to the GUI, including significant layout changes.
The most involved change has been the introduction of LV2 support - as our most
intrepid friends will know :)

This has been extensively tested on four completely different LV2 hosts, along
with detailed tests of Yoshimi in stand-alone mode to ensure there are no
regressions.

Supported features:
1. Sample-accurate midi timing.
2. State save/restore support via LV2_State_Interface.
3. Working UI support via LV2_External_UI_Widget.
4. Programs interface support via LV2_Programs_Interface.

Planned features:
1. Multi channel audio output. Now only 'outl' and 'outr' are routed to lv2
plugin instance. 2. Controls automation support. This will be a part of a
common controls interface.

[LAA] Qtractor 0.6.4 - The Baryon Throne beta release!

laa - 1 hour 4 min ago
From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Qtractor 0.6.4 - The Baryon Throne beta release!
Date: Nov 24, 7:48 pm 2014

Aw, snap!

Wait, there's no big deal (nor chromium's) cosmic (mis)alignment
being announced here now. Rest calm. Sorry to delude some of you :)

But, there's one (notable) leap on this tiny side and part of the
universe... (or is it a multiverse? move along...) What I really want to
tell is all about this happening and none else's freaking business:

Qtractor 0.6.4 (baryon throne beta) is released!

Release highlights:
* Punch-in/out over loop-recording/take modes (NEW)
* Latch/momentary MIDI Controllers toggle mode (NEW)
* JACK client/port pretty-name (metadata) support (NEW)
* Custom style and color themes (NEW)
* Mixer strip multi-row layout (NEW)
* Muted audio tracks monitoring on playback (FIX)
* Clip fade-in/out resize on time-stretch (FIX)

As for the clueless (as if there's any):

Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written
in C++ with the Qt4 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.

Well, although this being yet another milestone--if one may call it
that way--it also makes it official (yes, deeply engraved in stone) and
definitive as a migration to Git can be, as for source-code control and
management (it's a dirty job I know, but someone has to do it, right?).
Nevermind. It's done.

Meanwhile, please, don't ever hesitate to ask whether any of the
above does affect you some way or another. Or maybe anything else, yay?
Indeed, the puzzled you feel, the better :)

- Extending punch-in/out over loop-recording/takes modes.

independently of their mute/solo state.

time-stretching eg. due on tempo changes. (ticket by Holger Marzen, thanks).

[LAA] Yoshimi 1.2.5

laa - 1 hour 4 min ago
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] Yoshimi 1.2.5
Date: Nov 7, 7:20 pm 2014

If we were using project code names I think this one should be called "Iceberg".
There are a lot of changes underneath but very little to see.

Most notably Yoshimi supports multiple instances now without having to re-load
from file.

The GUI now correctly tracks MIDI bank and program changes, and you never see an
empty text field.

For those interested in the tech side of things, 50 Raspberry Pis are
running pd-l2ork and are powered via single USB cable, while powering three
80mA LEDs, three photoresistors, one mic and one 4W speaker (amplified via
RPi's USB port). RPi uses a small USB soundcard and a Modern Device shield
which is supported out-of-box via pd-l2ork to provide 10 digital I/Os (with
PWM), and 8 analog inputs (via MCP3008).

Professors Ivica Ico Bukvic and Aki Ishida are excited to announce the
public opening of our newest collaborative installation *Cloud*. The first
weekend in October, a constellation of fifty light- and sound-emitting
*cloudlets* that make up the *Cloud* will fill the central space of Welburn
Square in Ballston, Virginia. This networked artwork is an interactive
project, built and programmed in community workshops led by the artist
team. After it is placed in the square, it will take on a life of its own
as the*cloudlets* communicate with each other and its environment by
exchanging messages of light and sound. Come immerse yourselves in the *Clo=

[LAA] [LAU] Yoshimi 1.2.4

laa - 1 hour 4 min ago
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] [LAU] Yoshimi 1.2.4
Date: Oct 4, 10:30 am 2014

Yes it's up there now :)

The most noticeable change from a user point of view is that individual part
outputs (corresponding to channel sends on a hardware mixer) are no longer
affected by the main volume control. The panel window has also been updated to
reflect this situation, and red 'clip' bars have been added.

The accuracy of peak and clip indication has been improved and decay times
increased to give a smoother, clearer response.

There are the usual crop of small refinements and bugfixes under the hood.

At the moment Sourceforge is still showing 1.2.3 as the latest version,
although 1.2.4 is there at the top of the 'files' list.

This happened once before and can't remember what the solution was. Has anyone
else had this happen?
