[LAA] Yoshimi V 1.2.3

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] Yoshimi V 1.2.3
Date: Aug 27, 12:13 pm 2014

Up on sourceforge now.

It's faster:
Has better compatibility with Zyn:
Has some usability enhancements:
Introduces 'naturalising', a small, configurable, per part random pitch shift:

Kudos to Mark and Paul for an interesting optimisation to Zyn in AddSynth.

At the last minute I heard of a bug in ALSA MIDI where trying to auto connect
resulted in Yoshi bailing out, so from this version onward until I can sort it
out the feature is disabled.

[LAA] [ANN] xjadeo 0.8.0

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Robin Gareus <robin@...>
Subject: [LAA] [ANN] xjadeo 0.8.0
Date: Aug 22, 2:15 pm 2014


Xjadeo is a video player that displays a video-clip in synchronized to
an external time source (MTC, LTC, JACK-transport).

http://xjadeo.sf.net/

-=-

Greetings Soundtrack Designers and fellow Multimedia Artists,

Xjadeo version 0.8.0 just came out and brings a lot of significant
changes. Most notably:

* openGL display
* video-frame indexing
* built-in UI / context menu

With openGL, video-scaling is now performed in hardware and playback
synchronized to the screen's vertical refresh (if the hardware permits
that; most graphics cards do). This is the new default display and
supersedes prior platform-specific video outputs (XVideo, X11/imlib2,
SDL, quartz, which are still available via the --vo option and also used
a fallback).

Video files are now scanned and indexed on load which provides for
reliable seeking to video frames for a wide variety of codecs where
frame-accurate seeking was not possible with earlier versions of xjadeo.
This also acts as a guard to detect and refuse broken video files early on.

User interaction has been overhauled, most notably by adding a menu that
facilitates discovering key-bindings. This deprecates the external
control application qjadeo which previously came with xjadeo.


There have been over 200 changes since the last release, the complete
changelog is available at https://github.com/x42/xjadeo
Other highlights include:

* separate On-Screen-Display for Sync-Source and Video Timecode
* self-documenting OSC API
* disable screensaver
* 64 bit timeline
* new website

Note that various command line options have changed. The seek-related
-K, -k parameters are no longer needed due to the change to indexing.
Letterbox is enabled by default, and it is now also possible to start
xjadeo without an initial file. In short, a lot of defaults have been
updated to make xjadeo more topical (despite that fact the the menu for
the X11 variant is plain old toolkit-less Xlib :)


Statically linked binaries are available for GNU/Linux, OSX and Windows
from http://xjadeo.sourceforge.net/download.html as is the source code
in terms of the GPLv2.

xjadeo is developed and has been tested for accuracy with ffmpeg-2.2.5
it may or may not work properly with different versions, but compiles
with any version of ffmpeg >= 1.0 to date.

Many thanks to Chris Goddard who provided valuable feedback and spent
several weeks on quality assurance and polishing user interaction. We're
far from done on the quest to 1.0, yet 0.8.0 marks a major milestone in
the life of xjadeo.


Cheers!
robin

Yeah at the moment I can only confirm that hrec works when run with
Python2 explicitly. As I mentioned I had problems running it with
Python3. As far as I know, the pyeca python module, which I use as a
bridge between hrec and ecasound, doesn't play well with Python3.

Try installing hrec with python2 explicitly, on Arch Linux it would be
like this:

$ python2 setup.py install

[LAA] [LAD] hrec

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Egor Sanin <egor.sanin@...>
Subject: [LAA] [LAD] hrec
Date: Aug 22, 7:40 am 2014

Hi folks,

I've been working on and off for the last little while on a command
line recording utility. It's really basic and the code is pretty
ugly. It exists partly because in my lazy search I couldn't find
anything that satisfied my particular need, and also because it was
interesting. I just made a first release, so you could try it if you
like.

The program is called hrec, it's basically a curses front end to a
very limited subset of ecasound's functions.

Code is here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/hrec/

AUR package is here:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hrec/

I'm planning to do change it soon, but the basics will remain the
same. Mostly I plan to remove the playback functionality, as it's
almost useless -- plenty of other software to do it much better. Also
I need to migrate the code to Python 3, but I'm getting stuck on the
python ecasound bindings. In the couple of (admittedly not very
thorough) attemps I've made I ran into problems with the current pyeca
module. Any advice would be appreciated. Anyway I thought I might as
well release it now and get some feedback.

I hope someone finds hrec useful!

Criticism and insults are also welcome.

Thanks!

[LAA] Silvet Note Transcription Vamp plugin v1.0 released

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Chris Cannam <cannam@...>
Subject: [LAA] Silvet Note Transcription Vamp plugin v1.0 released
Date: Aug 13, 12:58 pm 2014

Silvet is a Vamp plugin for note transcription in polyphonic music.

http://code.soundsoftware.ac.uk/projects/silvet

** What does it do?

Silvet listens to audio recordings of music and tries to work out what
notes are being played.

To use it, you need a Vamp plugin host (such as Sonic Visualiser).

How to use the plugin will depend on the host you use, but in the case
of Sonic Visualiser, you should load an audio file and then run Silvet
Note Transcription from the Transform menu. This will add a note
layer to your session with the transcription in it, which you can
listen to or export as a MIDI file.

** How good is it?

Silvet performs well for some recordings, but the range of music that
works well is quite limited at this stage. Generally it works best
with piano or acoustic instruments in solo or small-ensemble music.

Silvet does not transcribe percussion and has a limited range of
instrument support. It does not technically support vocals, although
it will sometimes transcribe them anyway.

You can usually expect the output to be reasonably informative and to
bear some audible relationship to the actual notes, but you shouldn't
expect to get something that can be directly converted to a readable
score. For much rock/pop music in particular the results will be, at
best, recognisable.

To summarise: try it and see.

** Can it be used live?

In theory it can, because the plugin is causal: it emits notes as it
hears the audio. But it has to operate on long blocks of audio with a
latency of many seconds, so although it will work with non-seekable
streams, it isn't in practice responsive enough to use live.

** How does it work?

Silvet uses the method described in "A Shift-Invariant Latent Variable
Model for Automatic Music Transcription" by Emmanouil Benetos and
Simon Dixon (Computer Music Journal, 2012).

It uses probablistic latent-variable estimation to decompose a
Constant-Q time-frequency matrix into note activations using a set of
spectral templates learned from recordings of solo instruments.

For a formal evaluation, please refer to the 2012 edition of MIREX,
the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation Exchange, where the basic
method implemented in Silvet formed the BD1, BD2 and BD3 submissions
in the Multiple F0 Tracking task:

[LAA] Constant-Q library and Vamp plugin

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Chris Cannam <cannam@...>
Subject: [LAA] Constant-Q library and Vamp plugin
Date: Aug 13, 12:58 pm 2014

Announcing a new C++ library and Vamp plugin implementing the Constant-Q
transform of a time-domain signal.

https://code.soundsoftware.ac.uk/projects/constant-q-cpp

The Constant-Q transform is a time-to-frequency-domain transform related
to the short-time Fourier transform, but with output bins spaced
logarithmically in frequency, rather than linearly. The output bins are
therefore linearly spaced in terms of musical pitch. The Constant-Q is
useful as a preliminary transform in various other methods such as note
transcription and key estimation techniques.

This library provides:

* Forward transform: time-domain to complex Constant-Q bins
* Forward spectrogram: time-domain to interpolated Constant-Q magnitude
spectrogram
* Inverse transform: complex Constant-Q bins to time domain

The Vamp plugin provides:

* Constant-Q magnitude spectrogram with high and low frequency extents
defined in Hz
* Constant-Q magnitude spectrogram with high and low frequency extents
defined as MIDI pitch values
* Pitch chromagram obtained by folding a Constant-Q spectrogram around
into a single-octave range

The code is provided with full source under a liberal licence, and
plugin binaries are provided for Windows, OS/X, and Linux.

The method is drawn from Christian Schörkhuber and Anssi Klapuri,
"Constant-Q transform toolbox for music processing", SMC 2010. See the
file CITATION for details. If you use this code in research work, please
cite this paper.

[LAA] LV2 1.10.0 and friends

Subject: [LAA] LV2 1.10.0 and friends
Date: Aug 13, 12:58 pm 2014

Good news everyone! LV2 1.10.0 is out, along with enough parallel
releases that I'm entirely too busy[1] to make a proper release email
for each one.

LV2 1.10.0 download: http://lv2plug.in/spec/lv2-1.10.0.tar.bz2

Cutting edge developers who go to all the best parties should note that
the atom Object/Resource/Blank types have been merged and new code
should use only Object (this simplification is not conceptually a
compatibility breakage, but code explicitly using only Blank should be
updated).

Aside from this, there have been only minor improvements and additions
since 1.8.0. Freshly prettified documentation and a full change log is
available at http://lv2plug.in/ns/

Also check out the work-in-progress example-based LV2 book, "Programming
LV2 Plugins" at http://lv2plug.in/book/

[LAA] Qtractor 0.6.2 - The Boson Walk Beta is out!

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Qtractor 0.6.2 - The Boson Walk Beta is out!
Date: Jul 7, 7:28 pm 2014

So it's summer, they say.

White bright and light pastel colors sparkling on every corner and turn.
Cheesy and silly season, they say. Alas, southerners don't apply. Sorry
about that. Of course I mean the hemisphere, obviously.

For whom it might concern, all anxiety has come to an end.

Indeed.

It all relates back to this last May 3, when a not-so-formal meeting
(aka. workshop) took place while during LAC2014@ZKM-Karlsruhe, where
some pertinent and undeniable requests were dodged and framed to a
"soonish" implementation. And guess what?

Yup, the "soonish" are no more, or so I think.

Qtractor 0.6.2 (boson walk beta) is out!

Perhaps an additional word is due though, about the riddling code-names
that are branding the post-TYOQA beta releases. They have no personal
nor logical sense, I assure you. Perfectly arbitrary now. Everything in
life and the universe is way more unconventional than just a name.

Without further assay.

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.

Release highlights:
* Plugins activation MIDI controller / automation (NEW)
* LV2 UI Idle and Show (>= Qt5) interface support (NEW)
* Discrete editing of automation curve node velues (NEW)
* Missing audio/MIDI files and plugins warning message (NEW)
* MIDI note drawing on tempo-map changes (FIX)
* Automation curves re-adjusted to tempo-map changes (FIX)

Change-log:
- Prevent linear and spline automation curve modes for all integer
valued subjects. Also, make sure those values are rounded to the nearest
integer away from zero.
- Fixed save of LV2 Presets for plugins with state files.
- A man page has beed added (making up Gürkan Sengün's work on debian,
thanks).
- When moving plugins by eg. drag-and-dropping across tracks, automation
curves were being left behind, maybe leading to unpredictable mistaken
behavior. Hopefully, not anymore.
- Translations install directory change.
- Automation curves are now automatically re-adjusted to tempo map node
changes (after a ticket by Holger Marzen, thanks).
- Audio/MIDI files or plugins found missing on session load are now
subject for an explicit modal warning message and prompt for an
immediate session backup salvage.

Hello all,

Here is the first release of jackwsmeter.

This is a small utility that gets the signal values of the audio that
flow through JACK ports and make the peak levels available over a
websocket link, it's a clean and efficient way to get an overview of
levels from a serie of jack servers.

It's available in git at http://repo.or.cz/w/jackwsmeter.git, it's
released under the GNU GPL v2 or later.

The release tag is http://repo.or.cz/w/jackwsmeter.git/tag/refs/tags/1


I hope it can be useful to some people.


Cheers,

Fred

There are a couple of 'doh' bug fixes.
A really obscure one!
Some GUI tidy-ups.
A few small extensions to existing features.
Reinstatement of two features that got lost in the mist.

[LAA] GlassCoder v0.8.0

laa - 43 min 50 sec ago
From: Fred Gleason <fredg@...>
Subject: [LAA] GlassCoder v0.8.0
Date: Jun 21, 8:51 pm 2014

I’m pleased to announce the next public beta release of GlassCoder, a
minimalist JACK live encoder client for Icecast and Shoutcast streaming
servers. GlassCoder is available under the GNU Public License version
2. Some features available in this beta release:

Support for Icecast (v2) and Shoutcast (v1) streaming audio servers

Support for the following audio codecs:
MPEG-1/1.5 Layer 2 ('MP2')
MPEG-1/1.5 Layer 3 ('MP3')
MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding, Main Profile ('AAC')
MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coding, High Efficiency Profile ('HE-AAC+')
Ogg Vorbis

Support for the JACK Audio Connection Kit (http://www.jackaudio.org)

GlassCoder is a ‘minimalist’ client in the sense that it utilizes no GUI
or configuration file components whatever; its entire ‘user interface’
consists of a command-line invocation, making it particularly
well-suited for use cases where the encoder is driven by fan external
system, such as an automation system or script. Full documentation is
provided by the included man page.

Further information and download links are available at
https://github.com/ElvishArtisan/GlassCoder

Cheers!
