I am pleased to announce the release of Composite 0.006.1. This is a
bug-fix release.

ABOUT
-----

Composite is (or, will be) a software application/system for
real-time, in-performance sequencing, sampling, and looping.
Currently the main feature is the LV2 Sampler that supports Hydrogen
drumkits.

CHANGES
-------

* Fix FTBFS: t_AudioPort test missing link to QtCore
* Fix FTBFS Song.cpp: Replace using of QString(int) with
QString(const char*)
* LV2 Sampler: Initialize QCoreApplication
* LV2 Sampler: Fix crash by moving Logger instance to module level
* LV2 Sampler: Check LV2 Event types and add extension meta-data
* tests: t_AudioPort had a degenerate test
* tests: t_SeqScript now passes (was failing as dev reminder)
* Replace -lQtCore with ${QT_LIBRARIES} in build system

STATUS
------

Composite is a project with a large vision. Here is the status of the
different components:

composite-gui: Alpha (i.e. "a broken version of Hydrogen")
compoiste_sampler (LV2): production/stable, no GUI
libTritium: Not a public API, yet.

HOW TO USE THE PLUGIN
---------------------

To use the plugin, you need the following:

* A program (host) that loads LV2 plugins.

* A MIDI controller.

* An audio output device. :-)

The following LV2 hosts are known to work with this plugin:

Ingen http://drobilla.net/blog/software/ingen/
ardour3 (alpha) http://ardour.org/
lv2_jack_host http://drobilla.net/software/slv2/
zynjacku http://home.gna.org/zynjacku/

If you don't have a hardware MIDI controller, I suggest using
jack-keyboard (http://jack-keyboard.sourceforge.net/).

The first time you run the sampler, it will create a file
~/.composite/data/presets/default.xml, which will set up presets on
Bank 0 for the two default drum kits (GMkit and TR808EmulationKit).
Sending MIDI PC 0 and PC 1 will switch between the two kits. See
composite_sampler(1) for more information on setting up presets.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
---------------

With this release, I would especially like to thank:

Alessio Treglia - For dutifully reporting bugs, submitting
patches, and *patiently* waiting for me to review them.

Paul Davis - For working with me on the crashes that were
discovered on ardour3 alpha.

Peace,
Gabriel M. Beddingfield
