OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 05 Dec, 2021

As a number of bugs was found and fixed during the last few weeks, we decided to release one last update to OpenMPT 1.29 to address various minor issues and annoyances. In addition, this is the first fully code-signed OpenMPT release thanks to a generous donation by an OpenMPT user. This avoids annoying warnings when running untrusted applications downloaded from the internet in modern Windows versions. All that being said, we are still on track for finally releasing OpenMPT 1.30 later this month. If you are curious what's new, you can have a look at the release candidate thread on our forums.

  • Effect visualizer: Enable PC event mode if the only command in the whole selection is a PC event, even if it is not on the first row.
  • Switching to an OPL instrument after a zoomed-in sample was shown and not scrolled entirely to the left didn't display the OPL editor correctly.
  • Removing unused samples may have

OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 14 Nov, 2021

This update to OpenMPT 1.29 focusses on fixing various small bugs and is most likely going to be the last OpenMPT 1.29 update. Here are the most important changes:

  • The Parameter Editor now has a new fill option to only change parameters next to notes and remembers the last fill action when reopening the editor.
  • Soundfonts used in the MIDI library sometimes caused unexpected instruments to be loaded due to the ordering of instruments in the soundfont file (e.g. GeneralUser GS). Now OpenMPT always loads the instrument with the lowest bank number.
  • Soundfont drum instruments with more than 128 regions didn't work correctly.
  • Fixed various other issues with complex SF2 soundfonts such as GeneralUser GS, e.g. missing support for key ranges in presets.
  • Loading drum samples from soundfonts into the sample editor now translates them to be usable at middle-C rather than at their original mapped key.
  • When mixing internal and external MIDI messages in the same macro and using a smooth MIDI macro command, the external macros were no longer interpolated correctly.
  • IMF: Change envelope interpretation to be more like in XM instead of IT (sustain point has no precedence over normal loop, and loops are shortened by one

Mellite is an environment for creating experimental computer-based music and sound art

Updated: 15 Oct, 2021

Installation Option 1 (preferred): Launcher

Beginning with Mellite 3.5.0, a new preferred installation mechanism has been introduced. A separate Mellite-launcher has been created which provides the base system (JDK) and takes care of installing the Mellite application itself and checking for software updates. If your platform is supported, it is recommended to download the launcher, as it will allow you to get faster access to Mellite bug fixes and updates:

  • mellite-launcher_{version}_linux_x64.zip (for Linux 64-bit Intel/AMD)
  • mellite-launcher_{version}_win_x64.zip (for Windows)
  • mellite-launcher_{version}_mac_x64.zip (for macOS 10.10 or newer)
  • mellite-launcher_{version}_amd64.deb is a Debian package. You install it via sudo dpkg -i mellite-launcher_{version}_amd64.deb. This is the preferred method on Debian and Ubuntu, since it will add an executable mellite-launcher to your system and a desktop shortcut with icon. To uninstall, run sudo apt remove mellite-launcher.

A Raspberry Pi option is planned to be added. It is also possible to install the launcher without bundled JDK, which may be useful if you need to support a different architecture and you are able to install the JDK yourself:

  • mellite-launcher_{version}_all.zip (platform neutral, no bundled JDK)

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

Updated: 15 Oct, 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

  • Yabridge will now also show annoying desktop notifications when encountering low RLIMIT_RTTIME and RLIMIT_MEMLOCK values. This can happen on systems that have not yet been configured for pro audio work or with using an out of the box PipeWire configuration. If these issues are not fixed, then certain plugins may crash during initialization. Since these configuration issues may not immediately cause any obvious problems, it's better to be upfront about it so they can't cause mysterious issues later on. We would already print warnings about this to the terminal, but those are easily missed when starting a DAW from the GUI.
  • Added a new editor_coordinate_hack compatibility option to replace editor_double_embed. This can be useful with buggy plugins that have their editor GUIs misaligned after resizing the window. These plugins tend to draw their GUI based on (top level) window's absolute screen coordinates instead of their own relative position within the parent window. Some known plugins that can benefit from this are PSPaudioware E27 and

PraxisLIVE is a hybrid visual live programming IDE, rethinking general purpose and creative coding.

Updated: 13 Oct, 2021

PraxisLIVE v5.3.0 adds support for creating recodeable proxy interfaces (eg. for passing in as listeners to third-party code), persistent fields, and better support for injecting arbitrary types. The IDE is updated to be based on Apache NetBeans 12.4, and now bundles JDK 16 (with JDK 17 support to follow soon).

Changes

PraxisCORE runtime

  • Added support for recodeable proxy interfaces. The interface reference is carried across code changes and automatically wraps the implementation so that the reference can be safely passed to other code while remaining updateable. See usage instructions below for more.
  • Added support for persistent fields that retain their value across code changes but are not automatically injected. For select and careful use!
  • Added support for reference providers in @Inject annotations so that arbitrary types can be injected while controlling Ref handling in a central place (eg. in shared code). See below.
  • Added a default reference provider, with initial support for List, Set and Map. These can now be used directly as an injected field type - eg. @Inject List<String> lines. They are implemented by ArrayList, LinkedHashSet and LinkedHashMap respectively. This can be overridden by providing a custom provider.
  • Added a basic logging provider to

Konfyt is a digital keyboard workstation to easily switch patches for live keyboard playing

Updated: 13 Oct, 2021

Fixes

  • Pitchbend now works if Carla backend is used to play SFZ files.
  • Fix SF2 loading from command-line arguments.
  • Fix global volume up action getting stuck due to rounding errors.

Changes

  • Some GUI tweaks in the patch layer view and library/filesystem preview.
  • Misc code refactoring, cleanup and fixes.

  • Implemented a config entry in protracker.ini for disabling the 2x downsample dialog that shows up when attempting to load >22kHz samples (NO_DWNSMP_ON_SMP_LOAD)
  • Don't attempt to center window after leaving fullscreen mode. This could lead to issues on multi-monitor setups.
  • Further accuracy changes to the Paula emulator. Read two samples at once into the AUDxDAT buffer. This is a minor change, but it can have a very small impact on sample-changing commands (EFx/E8x).

OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 06 Oct, 2021

This update to OpenMPT 1.29 improves accessibility, fixes various bugs and improves existing features. Here are the most important changes:

  • When browsing song contents in the tree view sample browser, Backspace now goes back to the folder containing the song when in the lower half of the tree view. There is now also a context menu option to close the song.
  • Grey out plugin names in channel headers if plugins are disabled on a channel.
  • Pressing the Application key on the order list and instrument editor's sample map now opens the context menu.
  • Added shortcuts for opening the channel context menu and channel plugin context menu.
  • In the instrument and effect columns, commands assigned to special keys (Num / Caps / Scroll Lock) were executed twice, so e.g. using scroll lock to toggle song follow mode didn't work in these columns.
  • When switching between tabs using keyboard shortcuts, and when switching between samples in the sample editor using keyboard shortcuts, the currently chosen instrument / sample is now updated correctly between pattern / samples / instrument editors.
  • Added shortcut to start renaming samples / instruments on the comments tab (default: Ctrl+Enter).
  • Since OpenMPT 1.29.01.00, it was pretty much impossible to

OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 03 Oct, 2021

This update to OpenMPT 1.29 is mostly a bugfix release focussing on crashes with malformed files, but also improves existing features. Here are the most important changes:

  • Drum key names were not displayed for SF2 soundfonts in the tree view.
  • Find & Replace: Fixed various issues with replacing extended commands Sxy / Exy.
  • MIDI Export now writes loopStart and loopEnd cue markers. The loopEnd marker is now also supported by MIDI import (loopStart already was supported), as are EMIDI loop start / end CCs.
  • The limit of 128 regions per DLS / SF2 instrument has been removed (some complex drum programs can exceed the previous limit).
  • Extracting drums from SF2 drum instruments with a global region didn't work since OpenMPT 1.29.01.00.
  • Maximum rows per beat are now limited to 65536 to avoid excessive memory usage by malformed files when using Tempo Swing.
  • Fixed crashes and slow loading with malformed files in various formats.

For a complete list of changes, have a look at the release notes and the full version history.

libopenmpt has also been updated with the same security fixes.

OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows

Updated: 03 Oct, 2021

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

  • When replacing a plugin, keep the plugin chain intact by not clearing its output plugin.
  • In OpenMPT 1.29.10.00, it was no longer possible to resume samples on muted channels when seeking with sample sync enabled.
  • Fixed possible crash when trying to reset a playing channel.
  • Resetting a channel could mark the module as modified.
  • Previewing notes in the pattern or instrument editor could cause clicks if the NNA was set to Note Cut.
  • For OPL instruments, the actual middle-C note frequency is now shown in a tooltip when hovering the sample rate field in the sample editor.
  • Support reading another variant of 64-bit floating-point and 8-bit unsigned PCM compression types. Ignore invalid sample offset instead of completely rejecting the file. Makes some old (technically malformed) AIFF files load that were previously rejected.
  • Avoid Windows notification sounds when holding note keys when a widget is focussed in the OPL editor.
  • Added more mnemonic shortcuts for various widgets.
  • Honor the Stereo flag not being set in S3M files. This improves the sound of some tunes like Turbulence by Purple Motion.
