Like I said, I don't want any sequencing in tX, also no audio recording
(the exporting stuff is also going to go). Qtracktor is a sequencer, tX
is a sampler for loops. I think the idea of integrating Tritium would be
the best. My vision of tX is that of a set of turntables with a mixer
and a loop-library capable of downloading loop from a repo (similar to
the sample-databank of Hydrogen), and again with NO sequencing, since
one uses rhythmic loops.
I want to build in a beattracker, so that the turntables synchronise the
loops, regardless of their original tempo.
So the aim is to make the workflow of tX more simplistic and live: load
the loops-> press play-> scratch/ twist params/load more loops. That's
it.
Just like the unix motto: Make a small tool, but make it the best.

Ok First of all, I'm NOT planning on making tX an "Ableton Live on Linux". I actually want to keep the basic workflow of tX and take care of some shortcomings:
- optional Per turntable stereo-jack outputs (got that working, with my own mixer design)
- LV2 support
- OSC support
- Rubberband support (working in parts, length of slave turntables get adjusted to master turntable)
- Automatic detection of Beatpattern (don't know yet which lib to take)
- Take out the sequencing stuff (better done by some external app e.g seq24, Ardour3 via osc/midi )
- Eventual change to Qt for the Gui (as a programmer, i love Qt), but that for the far Future
So actually It should rather go along the lines of Traktor DJ (from NI) (with more than 2 turntables), than Live. I'd also like to incorporate NI idea of using a physical turntable to control tX (scratching etc.)
Gerald

So, I wonder why you choose to work with tX when Rui has started a long way on this path with qTracktor?

Cheers.
