Hello fellow Linux Audio peeps!

Apologies for this slightly delayed announcement, I wanted to sort out
some server issues before posting this ...

AV Linux 6.0.4 is released... before I get to the good stuff I want to
take a brief moment to say how thrilling it was to meet so many of the
luminaries in the Linux Audio universe at LAC 2014. It was truly the
experience of a lifetime and it is so great to remember your faces when
your various projects and release announcements come through on this
mailing list... AV Linux is merely a frame for your masterpieces and the
quality and depth of your art continues to amaze and inspire!

With sincere thanks, Glen MacArthur - AV Linux Maintainer

OK, on with it then

[LAA] Yoshimi 1.2.5

laa - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
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 - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
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?

The Guitarix developers proudly present

Guitarix release 0.31.0

For the uninitiated, Guitarix is a tube amplifier simulation for
jack (Linux), with an additional mono and a stereo effect rack.
Guitarix includes a large list of plugins[*] and support LADSPA / LV2
plugs as well.

The guitarix engine is designed for LIVE usage, and feature ultra fast,
glitch and click free, preset switching, full Midi and/or remote
controllable (Web UI not included in the distributed tar ball).

Here is the " Ultimate Guide to Getting Started With Guitarix
"

This release fix a bug in the preset naming schema ( vowel mutation in
preset names will crash guitarix) and introduce some new LV2 plugs:
* GxRoomSimulator
* GxDigitalDelay
* GxLiveLooper

Please refer to our project page for more information:
http://guitarix.sourceforge.net/

Download Site:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/guitarix/

Forum:
http://guitarix.sourceforge.net/forum/

Please consider visiting our forum or leaving a message on
guitarix-developer@lists.sourceforge.net


The Guitarix project never accepted Donations, and still wouldn't do.
But, if you ever wished to donate the project, I would kindly ask you to
back the MOD Kickstarter campaign here:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modduo/mod-duo-the-limitless-multi-effects-pedal
to reach this Goal:
>
> If the campaign reaches U$100.000 the MOD Duo will offer an Audio
> Interface from it's USB connection. This means that when you plug the
> MOD Duo to your computer you will be presented with a 4 input audio
> device (two pre-processed + two post-processed) that can be used for
> recording the MOD's audio directly to your favorite software.
>
> Add this to the quality of our analog circuit and you'll have, as a
> free bonus, a professional grade audio interface that if bought alone
> would cost the price of a MOD Duo.

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

The infamous plugins have been developed over the last couple years and now
GUIs have been created for them. A fund raiser in the style of the OpenAV
Productions release system has been started to free the source. The LV2
plugins are already open without GUIs and can be tried and used freely.

The plugins include:
-the infamous cellular automaton synth
-the infamous envelope follower
-the infamous cheap distortion
-the infamous hip2b (square wave distortion)
-the infamous stuck (a "sound retainer" effect)
-the infamous powerup and powercut (tape stop and start effect)

Please visit the project website to learn more about the plugins and visit
the donate page to learn how you can help free them.

[LAA] QMidiArp-0.6.1 maintenance release

laa - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
From: Frank Kober <goemusic@...>
Subject: [LAA] QMidiArp-0.6.1 maintenance release
Date: Sep 24, 7:24 pm 2014

Here is a new qmidiarp release, some small things take some days more than 9
months, don't they?
Along with a couple of (important) bugfixes and changes mainly regarding the
QMidiArp LV2 plugin suite, 0.6.1 comes with only one new feature: the Arp can
now step up and down octaves after a chord has been arped through, nothing
more than what you would expect from an Arp right? Although this is something
that was already partly possible by constructing a rather long pattern, it is
now simply selectable from combo boxes.

The LV2 plugins should now work fine in Ardour, Qtractor and Carla (1 and
upcoming 2) including transport synchronisation and preset storage.

Qt5 build is supported via configure option, but not recommended at the moment
since the LV2 user interfaces wouldn't work in non Qt5 hosts, so basically
nowhere.

Thanks go to the reliable translators and to the bug reporters, but also to
Rui and Filipe for making their plugin hosts better and better.

Enjoy
Frank

[LAA] Qtractor 0.6.3 - The Armed Hadron beta release!

laa - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Qtractor 0.6.3 - The Armed Hadron beta release!
Date: Sep 22, 7:11 pm 2014

Ah, the equinox...

Twice a year a cherished planetary alignment checks in on schedule,
once again.

The little rock gets another round from its warmy solar furnax, from
which were forged. The pale blue dot gets yet another round and to no
surprise, another tinier dot gets here around:

Qtractor 0.6.3 (armed hadron beta) is now released!

Release highlights:
* Revamped mixer (un)dockable panels (NEW)
* Plugin preset selection sub-menu (NEW)
* LV2 Time position/transport event support (NEW)
* Constrained plugin multi-instantiation (FIX)
* Automation curve node resolution (FIX)

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.

nb. Despite the old Qt4 stance, but still recommended, Qtractor does
build, runs and does it all on Qt5 for quite some time now. However, the
former recommendation prevails as the despicable LV2 plugin GUI
X11/embedding support through libSUIL just does NOT work on modern Qt5.

- Mixer widget gets (un)dockable Inputs and Outputs panels, also with
their respective title captions.
- Plugin instantiation is now constrained as much to prevent any audio
channel output overriding.
- Existing plugin presets may now be selected right(-click) from plugin
list context-menu (ticket by Harry van Haaren, thanks).
- So-called "painting" over multiple selected event values, while on the
MIDI clip editor view pane below the main piano-roll (eg. note
velocities, controller values, etc.) is now split into two similar
painting modes, whether the sub-menu Edit/Select Mode/Edit Draw is set
on (free-hand) or off (linear).
- Drag-and-copy of plug-in instances across tracks or buses (ie.
cloning) now also copies the direct access parameter setting (ticket by
Holger Marzen, thanks).
- File/Save As... now prompts and suggests an incremental backup name
for existing sessions files.
- Zooming in/out increment is now augmented by whether shift /ctrl
keyboard modifiers are set (on a ticket request by
Holger Marzen, thanks).
- LV2 Time position event messages for plugin atom ports that support it
is now being implemented.

[LAA] [ANN] Super Announcement - All MOD software for your PC

laa - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
From: Gianfranco Ceccolini <gianfranco@...>
Subject: [LAA] [ANN] Super Announcement - All MOD software for your PC
Date: Sep 18, 6:50 am 2014

Hello Linux Audio Users and Developers

In less than an our the MOD Duo Kickstarter campaign will go live and so it is with great pleasure that the MOD Team makes the announcement of the desktop versions for our entire software suite.

Some of this software has already been announced in the past but, as part of our Kickstarter campaign, we put the necessary effort to have them running in a regular Linux environment and not just inside the MOD. All instructions in Github were also updated in order to yield working elements when followed.

Most of this software has been under development for almost two years and their history is related to the development of the MOD itself. Being so, they carry some differences in workflow when compared to other LV2 programs and our current effort is being put on correcting those differences.


The softwares are:


MOD Client - run your LV2 plugins using the MOD interface.

https://github.com/portalmod/mod-client


——————————————————————————————————————————

MOD SDK - plugin interface creator

Use this program to create the HTML interface required by the MOD Client. If you don’t create an interface the plugins still work, but their icons will be a tuna fish can with just the ON/OFF button. When you click on the gear symbol on the upper right side of the icon you have access to the Plugin Settings Screen in which all parameters are visible.

The MOD SDK is Python based and can be installed by typing “pip install modsdk”

As the MOD Client, it runs on your browser and requires a mod-workspace folder (or link) in which you place your LV2 bundles.

Just run “modsdk" in your terminal and point your browser to localhost:9000

There is also post on our blog about the SDK: http://portalmod.com/blog/2014/09/the-mod-sdk

——————————————————————————————————————————

LV2BM - tool for analyzing and benchmarking LV2 plugins

Allows to select which URIs to test

Uses minimum, maximum and default control values to run the plugins

Uses several controls combinations in the full test mode

The output shows the JACK load percent


——————————————————————————————————————————

Plugins


- CAPS-LV2
LV2 port of the CAPS suite of LADSPA plugins.

- TAP-LV2 -
LV2 port of the TAP suite of LADSPA plugins.

- Pitch shifters - http://github.com/portalmod/mod-pitchshifter
Capo - up to 7 semitones up pitch shifting
SuperCapo - up to 24 semitones up pitch shifting
Drop - up to 12 semitones down pitch shifting
SuperWhammy - continuous pitch shifting from -12 to 24 semitones
Harmonizer - scale interval generator

- Utilities - https://github.com/portalmod/mod-utilities
Switchbox - A/B box for audio signal routing
SwitchTrigger - 4 excluding channel selector
ToggleSwitch - 4 non-excluding channel selector
Gain (mono and stereo)
Filters (LP, HP and BP) - 1st, 2nd and 3rd order
Two way mono crossover - 1st, 2nd and 3rd order
Three way mono crossover - 1st, 2nd and 3rd order

[LAA] Vee One Suite 0.5.1 - One second official beta release!

laa - Sun, 2014-11-23 10:20
From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Vee One Suite 0.5.1 - One second official beta release!
Date: Sep 18, 6:50 am 2014

Howdy,

The gand-of-three aka. the Vee One Suite of old-school
soft(ware)-instruments, featuring synthv1 [1], a polyphonic synthesizer,
samplv1 [2], a polyphonic sampler and drumkv1 [3], as a drum-kit
sampler, are once again released in beta phase though.

The changes for this one second beta release are the following:

- Fixed LV2 plugin relative/absolute file path state resolution.
(drumkv1 [3] only).
- One decimal digit added to all scalar parameters and knobs.
- Stand-alone JACK client ports outrageously renamed from a zero based
numbering scheme into a plus one natural one.
- Experimental LV2 Time/position atom-event support (Delay BPM).

Please, don't hesitate to ask whether any of the above esoteric babbles
doesn't get you on to update as soon as you can. One special note goes
for all the users out there of drumkv1 [3] LV2 genre: the update is not
just interesting but a must, seriously ;).

As usual, all is available in dual form:

- a pure stand-alone JACK [4] client with JACK-session, NSM [5] (Non
Session management) and both JACK MIDI and ALSA [6] MIDI input support;
- a LV2 [7] instrument plug-in.

The Vee One Suite are free and open-source Linux Audio software,
distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) [8]
version 2 or later.

The gore details are as follows ;)
