Yabridge is Yet Another way to use both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows VST2 and VST3 plugins on Linux

Updated: 08 Aug, 2021

If you need any help setting up yabridge or if you just want to keep up to date with new releases and important Wine related announcements, then feel free to join the Discord.

Added

  • Added support for VST2 plugins sending and receiving SysEx events. Certain MIDI controllers like the Arturia MiniLab Mk II output SysEx events when changing between octaves, and some hosts like REAPER forwards these events directly to the plugin. Before this change this might cause crashes with plugins that try to handle SysEx events, like the D16 Group plugins.

Fixed

  • Fixed a regression from yabridge 3.5.1 where certain VST3 plugins wouldn't resize to their correct size when opening the editor. This affected Kontakt, and it was caused by reverting just a little bit too much code in the regression fix from the previous release.
  • Fixed D16 Group plugins crashing when the host tries to send SysEx events.

Compatibility

The archive ending in -ubuntu-18.04.tar.gz is a compatibility release meant for older distros and is thus slightly larger in size. If you're using Ubuntu 18.04, Linux Mint 19, Debian 10, AV Linux MXE 2021, or any other distro that's older than Ubuntu 20.04, then you should use

Yabridge is Yet Another way to use both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows VST2 and VST3 plugins on Linux

Updated: 31 Jul, 2021

If you need any help setting up yabridge or if you just want to keep up to date with new releases and important Wine related announcements, then feel free to join the Discord.

Added

  • You can now directly focus the plugin's editor instead of allowing the host to process keyboard events by holding down the Shift key while entering a plugin's GUI with your mouse. Certain hosts like Bitwig Studio normally still respond to common key presses like Space for play/pause while interacting with a plugin. That in turn can make it impossible to type a space character in those hosts, which may become a problem when searching for or naming presets. With this feature you can temporarily override this behaviour and allow all keyboard input to go directly to Wine. This can also be useful for Voxengo plugins, which don't grab input focus in their settings and license dialogs.

Changed

  • Added more tracing for the input focus handling when using the +editor YABRIDGE_DEBUG_LEVEL flag.
  • Yabridge will now handle X11 events from within the Win32 message loop. What this means is that X11 events are now handled even when the plugin is blocking the GUI thread, which can potentially

Yabridge is Yet Another way to use both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows VST2 and VST3 plugins on Linux

Updated: 23 Jul, 2021

This is mostly a bug fix update. I was going to do a quick 3.4.1 patch with a couple of fixes for regressions people had reported for yabridge 3.4.0, but then I got reports that with certain setups (I wasn't able to replicate it), Ardour might resize plugin editor windows to an incorrect size when using Ardour 6.8 in combination with an older version of XFCE. So I decided to take this opportunity to rewrite the editor embedding implementation to make sure that hosts that somehow ignore the editor size reported by the plugin can never guess the wrong size by themselves. And we also need to get to yabridge 3.11 for Workgroups somehow, right? This change should fix rare editor size issues with Ardour, a similar issue with Carla 2.3.1 (older and newer versions aren't affected), and also fixes another Ardour issue where resizing a VST3 editor past its original size might leave behind gray borders. I haven't been able to find any regressions during my testing in any of the VST2 and VST3 hosts listed in the readme, but please let me know if you do run into any new issues after these changes!

Updated: 15 Jul, 2021
Download: https://laborejo.org/downloads/patroneo-2.2.0.tar.gz

Changelog:

  • Add status bar to explain possible user actions (like "use shift + mousewheel to transpose measure")
  • Streamline mousewheel behaviour in song editor. It now always scrolls without shift / alt key, no more accidental transpositions.
  • Add non-destructive step delay for individual measures. Shift an individual measures forwards or backwards in time, within the boundaries of the measure.
  • Add track-switch to choose step-delay wrap-around behaviour, if delayed notes end up outside the pattern
  • Add non-destructiv pattern augmentation/scaling. Make an individual measure shorter or longer overall, with the same GUI as transpositions.
  • Add track-switch to choose repeat-to-fill behaviour if scaling a pattern shorter, which creates empty space.
  • Change user input to choose above measure modifications. Everything is now accesible by shortcuts, removing the functionality from the mousewheel.
  • Fix missing undo for measure modifications after delete.
  • Fix wrong playback cursor speed.
  • Fix small GUI drawing issues

    only a problem on Linux.
  • VST/AU: Enable all audio channels of VST/AU plugins
    when the plugin is initiated since some plugins
    don't enable all channels by default. For instance,
    the U-he Runciter plugin only enables one of its
    channels. In the future there should be an option
    to select bus layout for plugins
  • Editor: Fix inserting a new note below another note
    in a non-polyphonic matter, i.e. so that the end of
    the first note stops where the second note starts.
    This could in some situations fail spectacularly.

Yabridge is Yet Another way to use both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows VST2 and VST3 plugins on Linux

Updated: 03 Jun, 2021

This is the gotta go fast edition. Yabridge's priorities have always been user experience, compatibility, and then performance. In that order. Now that the first two are in a decent place, it was time to take a closer look at improving performance. This new update considerably reduces the overhead of bridging Windows VST2 and VST3 plugins with yabridge. More importantly, all of these optimizations should make this overhead much more stable and reliable, meaning that you will be less likely to run into xruns. In addition, this update also fixes a few important edge cases issues. Most notably, it is now possible to use ujam and LoopCloud plugins through a new yabridge.toml option, and crashes can no longer leave JACK and Ardour in unusable states.

If you need any help setting up yabridge or if you just want to keep up to date with new releases and important Wine related announcements, then feel free to join the Discord.

Added

  • Added a compatibility option to redirect the Wine plugin host's STDOUT and STDERR output streams directly to a file. Enabling this allows ujam plugins and other plugins made with the Gorilla Engine, such as the LoopCloud plugins, to function correctly

  • GUI: Moved the Ping and Delay stats from the Settings window to the main window (#1762)
    This was partly to work around a Mac issue with updates to the settings window (#1643)
    and is actually an improvement anyway, as the settings window does not need to remain open.

Radium is a music editor with a tracker and sequencer and mixer interface.

Updated: 25 May, 2021

Changes 6.9.72 -> 6.9.74:

  • GUI: Made it possible to configure all label
    colors. Before this, it was hardcoded to light
    gray.
  • Sequencer: Made it possible to configure the
    editor seqtrack header backgound color
    separately. Before, it just used the "Sequencer
    background" color.
  • Sampler instrument: Made the crossfade slider
    exponential so that it'll be possible to set
    accurate small values.
  • Sequencer: Paint name of current editor seqblock
    in white color also in the navigator widgets.
  • GUI: Adjust default colors a little bit.
  • Editor: Fix assertion reporter popping up when
    changing number of tracks in "block properties"
    while playing.
  • GUI: Paint gradient background color for various
    text.
  • Editor: Tweak tempo multiplier slider graphics a
    little bit. Also make the colors for the slider
    configurable.
  • Playlist: Use same colors as in the sequencer and
    paint a border around current entries instead of
    using a different background color. Also paint a
    small border around non-current entries.
  • Sample instrument/Fluidsynth instrument: Make sure
    the sample browser is wide enough to show all text
    of normal-sized filenames.
  • GUI: Make all buttons have the "Buttons" color.
  • GUI: Make group boxes easier to see.
  • Sampler instrument: Support loop crossfade when
    using custom loop start/end points.
  • Sampler instrument: New effect

Fasttracker II clone for Windows/macOS/Linux

Updated: 23 May, 2021
  • Bugfix: The Lxx (Set Envelope Pos) XM effect was broken :(
  • Added support for loading FLAC samples (w/ loop/vol./name information)
  • Added support for loading '8-bit unsigned/32-bit float/64-bit double' AIFFs
  • Added support for loading XMs with ADPCM sample compression (ModPlug Tracker)
  • The windowed-sinc LUT now has 8192 phases instead of 4096 for a theoretical small interpolation precision improvement
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug with "Save rng." (Smp. Ed.) related to data after/around the loop end point
  • "Save rng." (Smp. Ed.) now asks if you want to overwrite an existing file
  • Bugfix: The windowed-sinc interpolation was slightly wrong near the loop-start point on looped samples. Was only audible on super-tight loops
  • Mixer now uses 32-bit single-precision floats instead of 64-bit double-precision. The error difference in the audio output is +/- 1 (16-bit), which is only -90dbFS and not really audible. This should give a performance boost for devices that are slow with handling double-precision floats.
  • Samples now have units of "samples" instead of bytes (in the sample editor). This means that 16-bit samples will show the same numbers as 8-bit samples.
  • The sample editor is now drawing interpolated sample points when zoomed in
  • Fixed a bug where the "Range" button in Smp. Ed

MusE is a MIDI/Audio sequencer with recording and editing capabilities and aims to be a complete multitrack virtual studio

Updated: 21 May, 2021

It is with great joy we present to you the final release of MusE 4.0. A great many things have been added and improved since the last stable release, nine months ago. To give a rather useless metric about the amount of work that has gone into MusE 4.0, our code repository has had more than 700 commits since the release of MusE 3.1.1!

Here is an extremely condensed list of the most important changes since 3.1.1:

  • The core feature of 4.0 is the redesigned user interface with a huge amount of quality of life improvements.
    • Tabbed UI with Docks for common utility editors like Marker List, Mastertrack List and Event List.
    • All new dark theme with a lot of graphical improvements including lots of icons reworked in vector format.
    • Many new toolbars for quick access to common operations.
    • A lot of menu operations now list their related keyboard shortcut.
    • Many new keyboard shortcuts.
  • We now have an AppImage for easy installation on all distributions, both for releases and the bleeding edge development version.
  • Many many other fixes and improvements.

OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 16 May, 2021

This update to OpenMPT 1.29 is mostly a bugfix release, but also adds some new keyboard shortcuts and improves existing features. Here are the most important changes:

  • Added keyboard shortcuts for increasing and decreasing tempo and ticks per row of currently playing module.
  • Launching OpenMPT could take longer than it should depending on the current working directory, e.g. when opening modules from the task bar's jump list.
  • In the General Tab, the tempo slider handle was shown in the wrong position for tempos close to 1000 BPM.
  • Interpolating the volume column between a cell with a Set Volume command and a cell with no volume command but a note and instrument is now possible (it uses the default volume of that sample for interpolation).
  • Duplicating / adding / removing a channel, undoing and then redoing it caused the contents of the last channel to be lost.
  • "Maintain sample sync on mute" was only enforced after manually muting a channel, and e.g. by restarting playback broke it again.
  • Can now resample all samples at once by holding shift when pressing the resample button.
  • Saving an XI instrument from an IT or MPTM module could cause wrong transposition for samples with a
