version 3.9.0

MIDIVisualizer is a small cross-platform MIDI visualizer, written in C++/OpenGL.

Updated: 31 Oct, 2021

Features:

  • It is now possible for notes to fade-out when they are close to the edge of the screen. The strength of the fade-out can be adjusted in the interface, and in the configuration file and command-line using the fadeout-notes parameter.

Improvements:

  • The blur applied to particles and notes has been improved. Rectangular artifacts that could appear at some resolutions won't be visible anymore.
  • Exporting to PNG with a transparent background can be improved by using the "Fix premultiply" option when exporting, colors should be more accurate in some software.

Fixes:

  • Set colors were not applied correctly when playing live MIDI (#108). A huge thank to @todd-herbert for submitting this fix!
  • When exporting PNG without a transparent background, an improper alpha channel was still exported and visible in some software.

Thank you for using MIDIVisualizer!

What's Changed

New Contributors

Full Changelog: release-16...release-17

Qtractor is a DAW written in C++ and the Qt framework.

Updated: 16 Oct, 2021

An Autumn'21 Release.

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)

Installation Option 2: Standalone Download

We still provide less frequently published builds of standlone binaries (they can be used without the launcher)

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

Fully-featured audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers, plugin and sound bank formats.

Updated: 15 Oct, 2021
  • Better handling of VST3 parameters (hide as needed, number of steps, etc)
  • Fix compatibility with Python 3.10
  • Fix getting the proper X11 UIs size for more plugins
  • Fix plugin bridges not automatically closing if main Carla dies on macOS (similar to how it is done on Linux)
  • Fix unused parameters preventing real ones from showing up in the edit plugin dialog
  • Fix CarlaNativePlugin.h and CarlaPluginPtr.hpp header files not installed system-wide
  • Fix XY-Controller GUI missing on "make install" target
  • Fix VST2 plugins under macOS and High-DPI (by not reporting scale factor)
  • Replace -lpthread usage with -pthread, fixing RISC-V builds
  • Send keyboard and focus events as needed/possible to VST2 and VST3 UIs
  • Small tweaks to XY-Controller (make lines 1px thick, close UI with Esc key)
  • Special tweaks for static plugin target build (embeding carla statically in other applications/plugins)
  • Other minor fixes and tweaks

Audacity is a free, easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux and other operating systems

Updated: 14 Oct, 2021

Prominent features

  • Clip Handles (replacing the Time Shift Tool)
  • Smart Clips (non-destructive resizing of clips)
  • Playback Looping

Smaller changes

  • Context menus have been added in more places.
  • In the preferences, Tracks > Track behaviors > Editing a clip can move other clips is now disabled by default
  • The spectrogram defaults have been changed: scale type to Mel (was Linear), top of scale to 20000 Hz (was 8000 Hz), window size to 2048 (was 1024), and zero padding to 2 (was 1).
  • The main volume controls no longer change the system volume.
  • Raw Import now will remember the previously used settings. Automatic detection of the format now is a button.
  • A journaling feature has been added for QA purposes.
  • Generate > Tone now supports triangle waves.
  • There now exist "What's new" screens for the update and welcome dialogs.

Libraries

  • FFMPEG now supports avformat 55, 57 and 58.
  • PortAudio has been updated to version 19.7 and devendored (so it can be built against 19.6).
  • Several libraries (expat, libsndfile, ...) have been devendored. The CMakeLists.txt lists which versions we build against.

Fixed Bugs

  • AppImages support localization. #1382
  • Progress bars for Nyquist generators have been made more accurate. #1856
  • The play button has regained

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

ProTracker 2 clone for Windows/macOS/Linux

Updated: 10 Oct, 2021
  • 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).

ProTracker 2 clone for Windows/macOS/Linux

Updated: 16 Sep, 2021
  • Bugfix: Pattern delay (EEx) did nothing on muted channels
  • Bugfix: Less clicks/pops during E0x command (Set LED Filter)
  • Added the missing Karplus-Strong command (E8x). Since this effect was sometimes replaced with visuals-syncing in demo music, it can be turned off by setting DISABE_E8X to TRUE in protracker.ini.
  • Fix: Only do 2x oversampling if the audio output rate is below 96kHz. It would otherwise be a waste of CPU time (diminishing returns).
  • Paula emulation is now slightly more accurate to a real Amiga (verified):
    1. Period/volume changes are now only updated when it's time to read
      a new sample point (period refetch). It was recently discovered that
      volume is also fetched (and cached) in the period refetch stage.

      time to read the next sample point. This can sometimes make a very small
      difference for sampledata-changing ProTracker effects (E8x / EFx).

Updated: 12 Sep, 2021

Please note that the project is still unannounced, expect bugs. Please report any bugs in the issue tracker, we are eager to fix them and make this release rock-solid.

Changelog:

  • IMPORTANT: Fixed a bug where inserting SG Channel in the mixer changed the
    volume by the same amount as the "law" knob (default -3dB). The volume is
    now normalized and unaffected by adding a mixer plugin, however, this will
    affect existing projects, the fix is to adjust volume on tracks containing
    an SG Channel mixer plugin by -3dB (or whatever the "Law" know is set to).
    Once the project is publicly announced in a few weeks, we will not make
    changes that affect the sound of existing projects.
  • Fixed many bugs and crashes, special thanks to @john-the-bard for testing,
    providing logs and writing some great music in Stargate
  • Many more plugin UI updates
  • Default to PyQt6 if available, otherwise fall back to PyQt5, fixes issues
    with Wayland on Linux, improves performance on multiple platforms
  • FM1, VA1: improved sound quality

LibraZiK is digital audio-software studio and related documentation, based on Debian Buster

Updated: 08 Sep, 2021

Hi LibraZiK-ies.

No new blog post since March the 30th. The main reason for this is that I took a new job (not much to do with computers, free software, linux, or even computer aided music) and that leaves me less time. Those of you who follow the project closely knew that I was still working on things and updating some important parts of LibraZiK-3 when needed. Below is a summary of the things that have been happening on the project over the last 5 months.

splash.png, March 2021

Music made with LibraZiK-3: A lot of music made lately with LibraZiK, and it fills me with joy that people are using it for real, to actually make music. It is likely that other pieces have been made with LibraZiK during these months, but that I have not been notified of them. If so, please feel free to point them out to me in the comments of this...

ProTracker 2 clone for Windows/macOS/Linux

Updated: 04 Sep, 2021
  • The tracker now uses 2x oversampling and decimation for mixing and filtering for (theoretically) less aliasing
  • Added Amiga 1200 low-pass filter (~34.4kHz, when not in A500 mode). This makes sense now, since we have twice the render/filter frequency than before.
  • PAT2SMP now renders in higher quality thanks to the new high quality 2x decimator routine. Especially noticable in LO mode on high-frequency content.
  • The "2x downsample" option while loading samples results in slightly less aliasing than before because of the new high quality 2x decimator
  • The MOD2WAV audio rate is now the same as the tracker's audio rate
  • Stereo separation now works like it should. The volume is a bit louder than before if you increase the separation, but that's expected.
  • Removed the hand-made cutoff tweak on the Amiga 500 low-pass filter. It now uses the correct nominal cutoff frequency. The RC filter routines have been replaced with new ones, and with these I didn't have to tweak the cutoff to make it sound similar to an A500 (probably related to filter prewarping?).
  • Windows/macOS: Updated SDL2 from version 2.0.14 to 2.0.16

RaySession is a GNU/Linux session manager for audio programs, using a varient of NSM

Updated: 20 Aug, 2021

The most important new feature in this release is the apparition of the JACK patchbay. It is not displayed by default at first startup, click on Control Button, or use View menu, and Show JACK Patchbay. You also can press Ctrl+J to show/hide the patchbay.

The patchbay has been forked from Carla, with some improvements.
For the moment, there are only 3 advantages to have the patchbay directly in RaySession's GUI

  • Boxes positions are memorized and replaced per session
  • Boxes have icons of the corresponding NSM client
  • of course: only one window for two things you generally need in a session

Note that :

  • The session frame is now "responsive design" to be reduced in width and allow more space to the patchbay.
  • messages were moved from the right to the bottom left (under the session frame)

The list below concerns the improvements of patchbay:

  • Most important probably: portgroups and stereo detection. Ports are automatically grouped into a portgroup if they seems to form a stereo pair. This allows faster connections, and also a more readable canvas, with less and less useless text. This improve has been proposed for PR to Carla. Portgroups can be also set by

Fully-featured audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers, plugin and sound bank formats.

Updated: 19 Aug, 2021
  • Add option to use classic skin by default
  • Add support for lv2 ui gtk bridges on any system
  • Set display scale factor for carla-bridge-*/carla-single standalone usage (on macOS and X11 systems)
  • Fix Linux VST3 plugin GUIs crash on close
  • Fix build under msys2 (will not force static binaries)
  • Fix keyboard focus for bridges on macOS (2nd attempt)
  • Fix canvas icon in settings to be high-dpi compatible
  • Fix wrong scale factor of plugin GUIs under macOS

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

Updated: 17 Aug, 2021

  • Editor: Shorten the main popup menu a little bit.
  • Editor: Fix editing the value of a pitch change.
    I.e. left alt + return when cursor is placed on
    a pitch change for a note.
  • Playlist: Clean up popup menus a little bit.
  • Playlist: Make it possible to configure the color
    of the border of current entries.
  • Playlist: Split the concept of current blocklist
    position and the concept of current block, making
    it convenient to change playlist while playing
    song. I.e. current block is not always the same as
    the current blocklist position anymore.
  • Playlist: Clean up various things.
  • Editor: Fix possible glitch in sound when cutting
    the length of a note while playing.
  • Playlist: Make "C" keybinding change color of

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

Fully-featured audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers, plugin and sound bank formats.

Updated: 08 Aug, 2021
  • Add 32x32 icon
  • Do not show "--gdb" in usage/help when not installed system-wide
  • Fix default SF2 search path
  • Fix keyboard focus for bridges on macOS
  • Fix X11-UIs related regressions in v2.3.1

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
