I'm pleased to announce KMidiTracker 0.5.10, the new revision of my KDE
Midi Tracker, or Step Sequencer, as you wish to call it.

New features include SysEx capture of messages, columns are muteable,
and finally MIDI clock messages are undestood (as master and slave), so
it can finally interact with other sequencers as Rosegarden4.

You can get it from

Small introducion to KMidiTracker (from the website).


KMidiTracker is a MIDI Step Sequencer.
A Step Sequencer is a sequencer in witch the MIDI notes are delivered
at regular time intervals, usually a 1/4th of a quarter note. As such it
is not as versatile as a regular sequencer as [Rosegarden], but allows
very easy creation of loops and sequences. The use of the [MIDI Clock]
allows several sequencers communicate clock events, so it is possible to
join several sequencers, with diverse focus, to make one single
synchronized composition.
KMidiTracker is similar to trackers like [FastTracker],
[ScreamTracker] or [Buzz], but only the Tracker; no actual sound is
emmited. Only MIDI signals.
The Tracker divides songs in tracks, each one have several patterns
that are arranged as sequences. Time advance in steps that depend on
tempo, and in each time step a new MIDI note may sound, or a controller
event may be sent. You can have several columns of notes and/or
controllers for each pattern, and pattern length is configurable.
