From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Qtractor 0.6.5 - The Fermion Ray beta is out!
Date: Jan 31, 10:58 am 2015

Spread the word,

Qtractor 0.6.5 (fermion ray beta) is out!

Release highlights:

* MIDI clip record/overdubbing (NEW)
* Extended track multi-selection for mute/solo (NEW)
* VST-shell sub-plugins support (NEW)
* JACK transport start/stop resilience (FIX)

And still,

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.

Change-log:
- Connections lines now drawn with anti-aliasing; connections splitter
handles width is now reduced; the MIDI connections splitter pane sizes
are now saved and restored properly.
- Extended multi-selection is now featured on the track-list (main
left-pane), primarily allowing for group mute/solo (and monitor) switching.
- Track-list (left pane) header column widths are now saved and made
persistent across application power cycle (double-click reverts to the
old original default).
- Minor fixes on the MIDI clip event list editor, also making sure the
current event is visible on the piano-roll view.
- As long to prevent asynchronous mistakes to JACK transport state
changes, an internal slack-delay is now introduced after self-initiated
transport commands (eg. start/stop).
- The MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) was missing to clear or reset
the current selection when no shift/ctrl keyboard modifier is in effect.
- VST-shell sub-plugins are now supported (as suggested by abique aka.
Alexandre Bique, thanks).
- MIDI clip record/overdubbing is now possible (Clip/Record on the main
menu or File/Record from the MIDI clip editor.
- Make sure some audio sample file encodings (eg. old Ogg Vorbis) does
not head-start on audio peak generation.

[LAA] Vee One Suite 0.6.0 - A third official beta release!

47 min 31 sec ago
From: Rui Nuno Capela <rncbc@...>
Subject: [LAA] Vee One Suite 0.6.0 - A third official beta release!
Date: Jan 23, 8:45 pm 2015

Howdy,

Once again, the 'Vee One Suite' of 'old-school' software instruments,
featuring a 'gang of three' made of synthv1 [1] as a polyphonic
synthesizer, samplv1 [2] a polyphonic sampler and drumkv1 [3] as a
drum-kit sampler, are being released into the wild as in so called
'beta' phase.

Changes for this one third beta release are as follows:

- MIDI bank-select/program-changes is now supported, for patch, preset
and/or instrument program control.
- New Help/Configure dialog is introduced for editing the also new MIDI
bank/programs interface and user preference options as well (new home of
the old Help/Use native dialogs option).
- Presets may now be specified by base name, as an alternative to the
complete preset file-path on command line argument (re. stand-alone JACK
client).
- Fixed parameters A/B comparison swap.

As usual, all made 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.

Details are dumped below, business as usual ;)

[LAA] OSC2MIDI utility, version 0.0.00_beta!

From: Spencer Jackson <ssjackson71@...>
Subject: [LAA] OSC2MIDI utility, version 0.0.00_beta!

--047d7b62499831d5bf050cba0f32
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

Hi all:

My project of the last few months is probably ready to set free on some
more machines.

OSC2MIDI is a flexible osc <-> midi bridge written in C and designed
especially for control of jack midi apps from an android device. It was
created with the open source android app Control (OSC + MIDI) in mind,
since thats what I use, but was deliberately designed so that one can
specify any arbitrary mapping of messages for conversion with plain text
files. The default mapping works with well with Control but I also have
included maps for adrosc, touchosc, and generic osc messages. Mapping is
(in my opinion) extensively documented in the map file default.omm included
with the source so you can quickly create your own map to suit your own
needs.

Please give it a whirl if you are interested and leave feedback on the
sourceforge project page (discussion for questions, tickets for issues).
I'll let it sit at beta for a bit. Once I clear out any initial bugs (or
miraculously none are found) I'll take off the beta status.

Get it at:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/osc2midi/

Follow the README for installation help, or if stuck, please reach out to
me.

Enjoy!
_ssj71

note: as for the ambitious version number (0.0.00) I see no point in
version numbering before release of a one-man project. :) If it scares you
feel free to rename the folder with a larger number. Once a few bug reports
come in it will grow.

[LAA] MusE 2.2 released

From: Robert Jonsson <spamatica@...>
Subject: [LAA] MusE 2.2 released
Date: Jan 7, 8:45 am 2015

MusE 2.2 - 2015-01-06

Hi All!

Following our plan of making monthly releases. Ah, I mean yearly releases...
Well, actually, it's been nearly two years since last stable release. Sorry.

Here we are anyway with a new release of MusE, and we think it's a good one!
Since last we have moved to github and Andrew has joined the team to, among
other things implement LV2 support, which he has done excellently. We are
quite happy with the current state and music has been recorded with MusE like
never before, some demonstrations are listed below.

Major feature improvements of this release includes:

* Support for LV2 Synths and effects
- effects are supported both in Effect rack and in Arranger
- State interface
- Worker interface.
- Instance-access.
- KX studio Programs interface + extended programs interface to support
per-channel bank/patch change (only Yoshimi now supports this feature).
- Common must-have features: Atom, buf-size, event, options, uri-map, urid.
+ Other extensions: CV type lv2 ports
+ LV2_TIME__Position
+ Atom_Event_Transfer support for plugin<->UI communication
+ LV2 path MAP and MAKE extensions
+ LV2 LOG extension
- UI interface. Supported UI subtypes:
+ QT4
+ GTK2
+ GTKMM2
+ X11
+ External interfaces (from kx studio specs).
+ idle callbacks

* Yet another MAJOR audio engine and plugin/synth process chain re-write
- Track controllers (vol, pan) now sample-accurate and near noise-less

Numerous bug fixes and minor enhancements:
- Metronome with accent clicks and replaceable clicks
- Synths rearranged in separate menus
- Reworked the PluginDialog to use a ui file and give more filter
possibilities
- Added [HOME] button to file open dialog
- Ignore undo/redo while recording
- Fix crash reported by LakeIshikawa: Pressing delete while clicking or
dragging events or parts
- Fixed copy/paste problem: Paste copies not clones, if the original
parts/tracks have been deleted.
- More commands support Undo/Redo, like setting global tempo.
- Some new scripts, RemoveAftertouch, TempoDelay
- Fix song not 'dirty' on many operations (close was not prompting to save).
- Instrument Editor now basically complete: Added Initialization Sequence
editor.
- Sysex event editor now allows selection from pre-defined Instrument Sysex
list.
- Revised and edited Roland SD-50.idf by Patrick (split into GM2/nonGM2).
- MusE now imports GM2 midi files. (Properly selects GM2 instrument.)
- Added a visual metronome to Bigtime
- Added line drawing of tempo in graphical master track editor
- Fixed bug (issue #342 Moving Aux sends crashes muse)
- Added more keyboard shortcuts in midi editors
- Mods/fixes to Midi Input Transformator plugin:
- When midi in is enabled in drum editor the selected track is moved along
with the triggered key
- Fixed bug with playback of drums clicking on notes in the new drum editor,
it was playing the wrong instrument
- MESS synths (esp Deicsonze): Controls (like Track Info program) and synth
controls now mirror each other, both ways.
- Deicsonze softsynth: Fixed: Not remembering settings + ladspa plugin
settings, midi controllers moved to NRPN14 type.
- Native VST: Call idle periodically. Makes some plugins like Glitch work,
as per LAD mail.
- Change window title when there are unsaved changes
- Add auto-save feature, when enabled tries to save after 5 minutes
- Added pitch control to SimpleDrums, first version
- Fixed Ctrl+arrows in the arranger so the track list is scrolled

Linux Audio Conference 2015 - Call for Participation

(Due to exceptional circumstances, this announcement comes a bit late,
so please note the early deadline of Feb 1st for submissions. We
apologize.)

We are happy to announce the next issue of the Linux Audio Conference
(LAC), April 9-12, 2015 @ JGU | Johannes Gutenberg University, in
Mainz, Germany.

http://lac.linuxaudio.org/2015/

The Linux Audio Conference is an international conference that brings
together musicians, sound artists, software developers and researchers,
working with Linux as an open, stable, professional platform for audio
and media research and music production. LAC includes paper sessions,
workshops, and a diverse program of electronic music.

*Call for Papers, Workshops, Music and Installations*

We invite submissions of papers addressing all areas of audio processing
and media creation based on Linux and other open source software. Papers
can focus on technical, artistic and scientific issues and should target
developers or users. In our call for music, we are looking for works
that have been produced or composed entirely/mostly using Linux and
other open source music software.

The online submission of papers, workshops, music and installations is
now open at http://lac.linuxaudio.org/2015/participation

The deadline for all submissions is Feb 1st, 2015 (23:59 HAST).

You are invited to register for participation on our conference website.
There you will find up-to-date instructions, as well as important

This year's conference is hosted by the Computer Music Research Group
(Bereich Musikinformatik) at the IKM (Institut f=C3=BCr Kunstgeschichte und
Musikwissenschaft) of the Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) at
Mainz. Being founded in 1991, our research group has been among the
first German academic institutions in this interdisciplinary field at
the intersection of music, mathematics, computer science and media
technology. In our media lab students are working almost exclusively
with Linux, and in our research we are also devoted to contributing to
the growing body of open source audio and computer music software.

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

We released our plug-in which sends MIDI notes by audio peaks under
GNU/GPLv3.

It has one audio input port and one MIDI output port. It works like
trigger-sampler, but more unix-way (without sampler). You just send output
MIDI note to sampler that you love. You can save dynamic of your audio
signal, just use velocity controls.

About "Note-off mode" control you can read here:

[LAA] LSA 0.1.0

47 min 31 sec ago
From: Mark Karpov <markkarpov@...>
Subject: [LAA] LSA 0.1.0
Date: Jan 1, 2:35 pm 2015


I would like to announce LSA (LiSt properties of Audio files). This is a
minimal, lightweight, console, Unix-style program to list various
parameters of audio files.

'Unix-style' means that it tries to do one thing and do it well.

LSA also tries to be fast. It has been written in C, it's multithreading
(creates one thread per physical core), it uses SSE and SSE2 intrinsics
(some people are still using some AMD processors that have no support
for SSE4). If you ever have to wait for results, it's because of hard
drive speed or decompression. Decompression is performed by Audio File
library, so I cannot easily speed up this.

LSA is built on top of Audio File library, so it inherits its list of
supported file formats:

* AIFF/AIFF-C (.aiff, .aifc)
* WAVE (.wav)
* NeXT .snd/Sun .au (.snd, .au)
* Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File (.sf)
* Audio Visual Research (.avr)
* Amiga IFF/8SVX (.iff)
* Sample Vision (.smp)
* Creative Voice File (.voc)
* NIST SPHERE (.wav)
* Core Audio Format (.caf)
* FLAC (.flac)

Supported compression formats:

* G.711 mu-law and A-law
* IMA ADPCM
* Microsoft ADPCM
* FLAC
* ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec)

The program currently is capable to display the following parameters:

* sample rate;
* sample width;
* sample format (signed or unsigned integer, single or double precision
floating point);
* number of channels;
* length in minutes, seconds, and hours (if necessary) per file;
* total length of all files in actual directory;
* number of frames per file;
* total number of frames of all files in actual directory;
* peak [0..1] per file;
* maximum peak among all files in actual directory;
* compression scheme.

TODO:

* efficiently calculate perceived loudness (as per ITU-R BS.1770-3);
* efficiently calculate loudness range.

LSA repository is here: https://github.com/mrkkrp/lsa

Documentation: LSA comes with its own man page

Subject: [LAA] CLAP, new virtual instrument and effect plugin interface proposal
Date: Dec 30, 10:30 am 2014

Hi,

I worked on a new plugin interface, it is not yet finished and set in
stone, but ready enough to gather initial feedback and advice.

The specification is hosted on github:
https://github.com/free-audio/clap and is available under the MIT
license. There is a generated specification document at:
http://free-audio.github.io/clap/

I hope that you'll find it interesting and give it a chance. Thanks.

Regards,

[LAA] Nama multitrack recorder v1.203

47 min 31 sec ago
From: Joel Roth <joelz@...>
Subject: [LAA] Nama multitrack recorder v1.203
Date: Dec 25, 9:22 pm 2014

I am happy to announce Nama version 1.203. With this
release, the effects-handling code has been fully converted
to Nama's OO model and several issues resolved.

* fix spurious reconfiguration
* effect chains apply parameters
* restore playback position to zero after recording
* kill Ecasound on exit in NetECI mode
* correctly handle user effect addressing (aliases and effect chain affiliation)
* fix drift in Master track volume
* add CONTRIBUTORS to man page
* add-effect/remove-effect accepts effect chain name as well as effect ID
* fix parsing of Ecasound chain operator parameter names

For users, the add-effect and remove-effect commands will
now work on effect chains as well as simple effects. Effects
can be addressed by effect ID, user alias or effect code.
Some bus-related commands have been renamed to conform
standard terminology.

For those who care to prod and hack the sources, Nama's
variables, defined in src/var_*, are now documented in
var_overview.[1]

I welcome feedback from any tire-kicking, torture-testing
etc.

Thanks to the Linux audio community, to Kai Vehmanen for
Ecasound and to Nama's user community for their invaluable
assistance.

DESCRIPTION
===========

Nama is a digital audio workstation. It is suitable for
multitrack recording, effects-processing, editing, mixing,
and other audio tasks. Nama uses Ecasound, developed by Kai
Vehmanen, for audio processing. Nama hosts LADSPA and LV2
plugins, Ecasound effects and controllers. It works well
under JACK and ALSA.

New projects begin with a mixer, and may include tracks,
takes, buses, effects, sends, inserts, marks, regions,
fades, edits, sequences and submixes, with mixdown to wav,
ogg, mp3.

Nama has a full-featured command interpreter with TAB
completion, keyword help and command history; a hotkey mode
for tweaking effect parameters, a Tk-based GUI, and project
management (history, branching, tags) based on git.

INSTALLATION
============

The easiest way to install Nama, is using a CPAN
client such as cpan or cpanm:

cpanm Audio::Nama

PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 cpan Audio::Nama

Other dependencies are Ecasound, LADSPA SDK (for LADSPA
plugin support), LILV utilities (for LV2 plugin support),
and midish (for MIDI capabilities).

repository at http://github.com/bolangi/nama

[LAA] MIDA 0.3.0

47 min 31 sec 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,
