22 min 47 sec ago
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] Yoshimi 1.2.2 available
Date: Jul 2, 7:17 pm 2014

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

22 min 47 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!

QmidiNet [1] is a MIDI network gateway application that sends and
receives MIDI data (ALSA-MIDI and JACK-MIDI) over the network, using
UDP/IP multicast. Inspired by multimidicast [2] and designed to be
compatible with ipMIDI [3] for Windows.

[LAA] RhythmDelay: tap a rhythm into your delay, and much more.

22 min 47 sec ago
From: Bart Brouns <bart@...>
Subject: [LAA] RhythmDelay: tap a rhythm into your delay, and much more.
Date: Jun 17, 1:57 pm 2014

Hi Everybody,


I made a delay where you don't tap in a tempo but an actual rhythm.


https://github.com/magnetophon/RhythmDelay

The 'much more' refers to ways of manipulating the sound of the
delay-taps.

In the studio, I find that I almost never use a straight delay.
It sounds way to clean and in your face, so I usually have a combination
of filters, a widener, reverb, and a way of having different delay-times
for L and R.




Here I combined all that into one very flexible setup:

Each tap has its own lp and hp-filters, zita-reverb, stereo-width and a
delay-based panner.

Each tap can have it's own settings for the insert-FX, but instead of a
control-panel per tap I made just two, and a slider per tap to morph
between them.



Once you get the concept, it's a really quick and easy way of making
everything from subtle polished delay effects to all-out dub-style
madness.

Have fun!!


Cheers, Bart.


PS:

The following is a long-winded question that will probably be much
easier to follow if you actually try out the effect before/ while
reading this:


I'd love to get some opinions and ideas on the feedback mechanism I
implemented.
In particular this: when the feedback amount is non-zero, and you are
tapping a new rhythm, while making sound, I have two choices:
- either I turn on and off the feedback tap after the feedback-delay.
- or I do it before it.

The first option is what I did now: it has the effect of starting to
feedback the sound you just made right after you tap. Which is what
you'd expect to happen in a normal delay, but has the downside that it
breaks up the rhythmic pattern you're tapping if any tap is longer than
the previous.

The second option will only start feedbacking the sounds you made after
you hit the tap button. This has the effect that the first time you tap
a new rhythm, only the tapped rhythm is heard, and the feedback only
starts for any sounds after the last tap.

This decision is moot if you don't make sounds while tapping a new
rhythm, but since I'd like to be able to use this live as well, I'd like
to some ideas.

[LAA] LAC'14 video archive

1 hour 32 min ago
From: Robin Gareus <robin@...>
Subject: [LAA] LAC'14 video archive
Date: Jun 12, 9:10 pm 2014

Hi all,

The video recordings of the LAC'14 presentations have just been uploaded
to the conference website and are now directly linked from the archive:
http://lac.linuxaudio.org/2014/program


There are still a three videos missing and the workshop videos are also
yet to come. Currently they are also only available as vp8/vorbis/webm
(sorry IE and Safari users). But since it has been quite a while
already, we decided to not hold back the release of these already
finished videos any further.

Once the collection is complete, we will provide a .torrent. Meanwhile,
for those who prefer to download the videos incrementally, they are
accessible via rsync://linuxaudio.org/ [1].

Many thanks for Frank and Moritz to get those done in really outstanding
quality this year. Kudos to the complete stream-team.

enjoy,
robin - for the LAC'14 team


[1] example to get the 720p versions:
rsync -Pa --exclude "*360p.webm" \
rsync://linuxaudio.org/lac2014/ \
lac2014/

[LAA] Open Source Audio Meeting in Cologne, Germany (User Group)

Wed, 2014-08-27 11:20
From: Nils Gey <ich@...>
Subject: [LAA] Open Source Audio Meeting in Cologne, Germany (User Group)
Date: Jun 5, 7:00 pm 2014

Dear musicians, programmers and normal people,

I plan to create a user group, a regular meeting, in my home town
Cologne, in Germany.

The first meeting ever will be already on June 18th, 19:00.
After that every two month or so. There are more dates on the website
(see below).

Here is a brief website with all the necessary information.
http://cologne.linuxaudio.org/ (Any language is welcome but the chances
are that most people will be from the area and therefore speak German.
So the page is in German)

If you intend to come you can put your name on this etherpad, but this
is not required. Anybody can show up.
http://yourpart.eu/p/linuxaudio-cologne

Topics will be unorganized Q&A, showing off programs and music, sharing
knowledge and tips and hopefully one day shorter or longer
presentations, tutorials, workshops etc.
I expect most people to use Linux but any OS is welcome, therefore I
named it just "Open Source Audio" and not Linux Audio.

So if you are in the area please join us! If you are not in the area but
know people in the area, please tell them.

Greetings,

Nils
http://cologne.linuxaudio.org/
http://www.nilsgey.de

P.S.
Despite the domain saying linuxaudio.org this is an independently and
privately organized event. It is not intended to replace or get in
conflict with the Linux Audio Conference.

Hi everybody,



I ported http://www.katjaas.nl/compander/compander.html to Faust.

It's a very nice sounding cross between an expander, compressor and
limiter.

[LAA] Rivendell v2.9.0

Fri, 2014-08-22 07:10
From: Fred Gleason <fredg@...>
Subject: [LAA] Rivendell v2.9.0
Date: Jun 5, 6:59 pm 2014

On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to
announce the availability of Rivendell v2.9.0. Rivendell is a
full-featured radio automation system targeted for use in professional
broadcast environments. It is available under the GNU General Public
License.

From the NEWS file:
*** snip snip ***
Changes:
Cart Notes Display. 'Cart Notes' information can now be displayed in
the 'Edit Events' dialog in RDAirPlay.

RDLogManger Command Line Enhancements. A '-P' switch has been added
to prevent existing logs from being overwritten by batched jobs.

Report Enhancements. Added a 'Classical Music' as-played report,
as well as the ability to filter all reports on the basis of daypart
range.

New Scheduler Code Support. Added an '--add-scheduler-code=' switch
to rdimport(1) and the ability to specify a set of scheduler codes to
be added to new carts on a per-dropbox basis in
RDAdmin->ManageHosts->Dropboxes.

RDLibrary Cart Status Highlighting. Carts whose dayparting indicates
a start time in the future are now highlighted in cyan rather than red.

New RML. An 'Append Log' ['AL'] RML has been added.

Full Disc Ripper Enhancements. The Full Disc Ripper ('Rip Disk' in
RDLibrary) has undergone a major overhaul, now allowing for
multi-track rips to a single cut and streamlined assignments of
selected tracks to new carts.

Various bug fixes. See the ChangeLog for details.

Database Update:
This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 239, and will
automatically upgrade any earlier versions. To see the current
schema version prior to upgrade, see RDAdmin->SystemInfo.

As always, be sure to run RDAdmin immediately after upgrading to
allow any necessary changes to the database schema to be applied.

--089e0103defa2ed38104faf1297a
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

Aqualung is an advanced music player for GNU/Linux (also running on other
UNIX-alikes). It plays audio CDs, internet radio streams and podcasts as
well as regular soundfiles in just about any audio format and has the
feature of inserting absolutely no gaps between adjacent tracks.

Aqualung R-1300 has been released today as 1.0-rc1, as the first milestone
in an anticipated (short) series of release candidates leading to the final
1.0 release of Aqualung. With this release, we celebrate 10 years of
Aqualung!

This release contains changes from the last 2 years and 4 months -- and, as
you may imagine, has been long long overdue. It would not have been
possible to make it to this point without the work of core devs Jamie
Heilman, Jeremy Evans and Peter Szilagyi, as well as numerous contributors
who sent us patches, bugreports, translations and encouragement. I would
like to take this opportunity to thank all of you.

A condensed selection of changes that went into this release is available
in the ChangeLog, directly accessible at:
http://aqualung.factorial.hu/ChangeLog

The release tarball is available from SourceForge mirrors:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/aqualung/files/aqualung/1.0-rc1/

[LAA] Yoshimi V 1.2.1 released

Sun, 2014-08-17 13:50
From: Will Godfrey <willgodfrey@...>
Subject: [LAA] Yoshimi V 1.2.1 released
Date: May 29, 8:10 pm 2014

Tarball on sourceforge.

There are a number of small tweaks under the bonnet, mostly to aid compilation.

There are new drum sounds from Dario Straulino, and an alternative SVG desktop
icon from Andrew Ter-Grigoryan (sorry it too so long).

The most significant (although quite small) change is in settings - the option
to enable a part when doing a MIDI program change.

This means you can start up a 'bare' yoshimi, and, provided your banks are well
organised, load whatever patches to whatever part you like, from any bank
entirely from a sequencer, or suitably capable hardware synth/controller.

Bank changes are always silent, and program changes are if you only change a
part that is not actually sounding at that time.
