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

Thu, 2014-09-18 06:20
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)

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).

From: Frederic Peters <fpeters@...>
Subject: [LAA] jackwsmeter 1
Date: Jul 5, 6:18 pm 2014

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

in beta phase now.

- LV2 UI Idle and Show interfaces support added.
- First attempt to allow a headless stand-alone JACK client application
run mode, without a GUI, with option given as command line argument

only).
- Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.

As before, all made available in dual form:

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

Tue, 2014-09-09 09:40
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!
