TYOQA (the year of qtractor automation for the clueless) is now pretty
real. I'd say it's all been my my prerogative, again and again, doing
things my own way (do I hear Frank S. singing? nope. move along...).

Is this the time to do the unthinkable? Should I tag it as beta now?
Should I? There's one single reason for not doing so and a couple of
others to make it through:

1. basically it's all the same functionality that stays put or improved
in a few spots;
2. it just feels like it! :)

Now comes the mighty corrosive one: I'll be off on vacation soon. Summer
is waiting for me. And I just hate to miss that kind of deadline. Woohoo!

Is there anything else to mention? Go ahead, make your day:

Qtractor 0.5.0 (alpha zulu) is now released!

Release highlights:

* TYOQA! Audio/MIDI track and plugin parameter automation (NEW)
* MIDI controller catch-up behavior (NEW)
* All zooming in/out relative to views center (NEW)
* Audio gain/panning smoothing changes (FIX)

Happy summer 2 y'all!



Project page:



- source tarball:

- source package (openSUSE 11.4):


- binary packages (openSUSE 11.4):



- from the dusty shelf: user manual (anyone?):

Weblog (upstream support):



Qtractor is free, open-source software, distributed under the terms
of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.


- MIDI controller learn/catch-up sees the way in: MIDI controller
changes are now only effective after catching-up with their respective
program parameters, avoiding abrupt jumps and keeping a safe and
continuous behavior.
- Track/Height menu is now featured, giving access to Increase, Decrease
or Reset the current track height.
- All changes to audio gain and panning on tracks and buses are now
applied following a piece-wise linear ramp, reducing the old nasty
clicks, pops or zipper artifacts that might be awfully audible on some
situations, most specially on automation.
- All zooming in/out is now relative to either the viewport center or
current mouse cursor position if found laying inside.
- TYOQA! the underground sources have emerged:... after years in the
making, track automation, or dynamic curves as some like to call, is
finally a reality, tricky but real ;)
- Audio clip anti-glitch/ramp-smoothing effect is now slightly
independent of current buffer-size period (mitigating bug #3338113 effect).
- Once buried under the Edit menu, Clip menu has been finally promoted
to top main menu.
- Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
- Fixed muted loop playback on audio clips ending coincidentally with
the loop-turn/end point.
- Old/deprecated JACK port latency support added to audio recording
latency compensation.
- Audio clip merge/export lock-ups now untangled (fixes bug #3308998).
- LV2 extension headers update.
- Fixed configure of newer LV2 host implementation stack (LILV) when
older (SLV2) is not present.

Enjoy && Cheers!
