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

Updated: 15 Apr, 2021

I sadly had to skip over the acid version number, but anyways, here's another release for yabridge! This release adds support for bitbridging 32-bit VST3 plugins. It also includes a number of other important fixes and improvements. The most important fix here is a workaround for a regression in Wine 6.5 and Wine 6.6 that would prevent yabridge's host applications from exiting.

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 using 32-bit Windows VST3 plugins in 64-bit Linux VST3 hosts. This had previously been disabled because of a hard to track down corruption issue.
  • Added an option to prefer the 32-bit version of a VST3 plugin over the 64-bit version if both are installed. This likely won't be necessary, but because of the way VST3 bundles work there's no clean way to separate these. So when both are installed, the 64-bit version gets used by default.

Fixed

  • Worked around a regression in Wine 6.5 that would prevent yabridge from shutting down (wine bug #50869). With Wine 6.5 terminating

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

Updated: 30 Mar, 2021

Hello LibraZiK-ies.

No post last month because it was a bad calendar since I was working away from home. So we go back to the January monthly report post, in which I had planned to finalize several updates and specifically work on making it easier to use LibraZiK with KDE (another desktop environment than MATE recommended/provided by default). The planned updates have been done, as well as others not initially planned, and a new set of plugins has arrived in LibraZiK.

splash.png, March 2021

Before seeing all this in more detail, here are several tracks that have been made by people using LibraZiK to produce their music. There is something for everyone: synthwave, guitar ballad, latino, dub, drone, and others. Something to tickle your ears while reading this blog post.

DiscoDOS helps a DJ remember and analyze what they played in their sets, or what they could possibly play in the future

Updated: 29 Mar, 2021

Fixes

  • When Discogs search didn't get any results (either invoked via disco search <searchterm> or disco mix <mixname> -a <searchterm> or any other way) one of the following two errors were shown to the user. All the requested operations were working properly but especially on macOS it caused an ugly popup message - this is fixed now.

    • AttributeError: bool object has no attribute pages
    • TypeError: can only concatenate str (not "int") to str
  • Also when Discogs search didn't find anything, before above errors were show a tiny ERROR message about a "non-existent list index" was shown to the user. The error was already catched and handled but is useless to the user anyway, thus it is not shown anymore.

    instrument has output channels.
  • Audio: Fix losing the jack port names of
    "System in" and "System out" instruments when a
    song is saved when not running jack. This caused
    the message "Could not register jack port" when
    later loading the song using jack.

    notes.
  • Soundfile renderer: Don't close dialog window if
    we couldn't save file.

    audio file currently used by the program.
  • Soundfile renderer: Ask yes/no if trying to
    overwrite an existing audio file.
  • Sequencer: Don't show assertion reporter when
    loading a song with an audio file that has become
    shorter than last time. Instead just show a note
    in the message log window.
  • MIDI: More fine-grained locking and prevent
    priority inversion when sending midi from main
    thread.
  • Audio: Turn off realtime priority when rendering
    audio file.
  • API: sendMidiMessage, openMidiOutputPort,
    closeMidiOutputPort, openMidiInputPort,
    closeMidiInputPort, closeAllMidiInputPorts,
    getMidiOutputPortNames, getMidiInputPortNames.

jack_mixer is a GTK+ JACK audio mixer app with NSM support, channel reordering, K-meters, and MIDI automation

Updated: 15 Mar, 2021

Bugfix release

Fixed:

  • In fixing issue #81 a regression was introduced in version 15, which caused channel volume levels to not be restored when loading a project XML file.

  • The Channel.autoset_*_midi_cc methods in the Cython extension module didn't return the int result from the C functions they call, causing mis-leading debug log messages.

Project infrastructure and internals:

  • A wiki was added to the jack_mixer GitHub project and a page with instructions on how to install from source on debian / Ubuntu.

  • The dependencies for building a Python wheel via pip were updated.

  • When building from a Git checkout, the cython program is also found when it is installed as cython3.

  • Debug logging can be enabled by setting the JACK_MIXER_DEBUG environment variable (for when the -d command line switch can't be used, e.g. when run via NSM).

This release was created by Christopher Arndt.

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

Updated: 07 Mar, 2021

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

Fixed

  • Fix bus information queries being performed for the wrong bus index. This fixes VST3 sidechaining in Renoise, and prevents a number of VST3 plugins with a sidechain input from causing Ardour and Mixbus to freeze or crash.

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, or any other distro that's older than Ubuntu 20.04, then you should use this archive instead of the regular release. Yabridgectl will run on any distro.

Updating

To update from an older installation, simply overwrite your current yabridge and yabridgectl files with the ones downloaded below, and then rerun yabridgectl sync to complete the update. As of yabridge 3.0.0 yabridgectl is now included in the regular release archives for your convenience.

  • Scripting: Update S7.
  • NSM: Never autoconnect jack ports when nsm is
    active.
  • Editor/mouse: Fix moving an element after
    previously moving that element beyond a limit.
    Before, when moving that element again, the
    element would automatically jump the same number
    of pixels in the opposite direction first. (The
    fix was only necessary on Linux and Windows.)
  • Modulators: Don't break chronological order when adding or removing a modulator. * Mixer: Keep crologocial order for the plugin favourites. * Fonts: Display currently used font in font requester when changing editor font or system font.
  • Fonts: Fix saving custom editor font to settings.
  • Editor/cursor: Try to move to the same subtrack
    when using Ctrl + J.
  • Editor/cursor: Make sure cursor is visible after
    changing zoom value.
  • Editor/cursor: Make sure the complete current
    track is visible when scrolling left/right and
    there's enough space. Before, we only made sure
    the complete current subtrack was visible.
  • Editor/cursor: Fix showing full subtrack when
    moving cursor to a subtrack that is outside the
    visible area.
  • Editor/cursor: Fix cursor sometimes moving to the
    wrong place when moving left or right in the
    timing tracks.
  • Editor/cursor: Fix cursor moving to the same
    subtrack when moving cursor to

  • 0 wipe when ALO is turned off, bpm tempo changes, when bars changes
  • 1 same as 0, and wipe when all loops are off
  • 2 same as 0, and wipe when a button is double-pressed within one second
  • 3 same as 2, but only the double-pressed loop is wiped

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

Updated: 26 Feb, 2021

This is small maintenance release that adds compatibility with a new REAPER ReaSurround feature, fixes a small regression with the logging, and adds a few quality of life improvements to yabridgectl status.

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

Changed

  • Wine 6.2 introduced a regression that would cause compile errors because some parts of Wine's headers were no longer valid C++. Since we do not need the affecting functionality, yabridge now includes a small workaround to make sure that the affected code never gets compiled. This has been fixed for Wine 6.3.

Fixed

  • Added support for a new ReaSurround related VST2.4 extension that REAPER recently started using. This would otherwise cause certain plugins to crash under REAPER.
  • Fixed a regression from yabridge 3.0.0 where log output would no longer include timestamps.

yabridgectl

  • Changed the wording and colors in yabridgectl status for plugins that have not yet been setup to look less dramatic and hopefully cause less confusion.
  • Aside from the installation status, yabridgectl status now also shows a plugin's type and architecture. This is color coded to

jack_mixer is a GTK+ JACK audio mixer app with NSM support, channel reordering, K-meters, and MIDI automation

Updated: 25 Feb, 2021

Important change: jack_mixer now uses meson for building and
installation. See INSTALL.md for new build instructions.

New:

  • A global setting for default project file path was added and can be changed
    in the preference dialog.

    The default value is $XDG_DATA_HOME/jack_mixer (which is normally
    ~/.local/share/jack_mixer).

  • A "Recent projects" menu was added, to allow loading recently used / saved
    projects more quickly.

  • Direct channel output ports are now optional and can be enabled/disabled in
    the channel preferences dialog.

  • Ctrl+left-click on the mute ("M") or solo ("S") channel buttons now activates
    exclusive mute resp. solo.

  • A man page for jack_mixer was added.

  • jack_mix_boxnow supports the -p|--pickup command line option to enable
    MIDI pickup mode, to prevent sudden volume or balance value jumps.

Fixed:

  • Activating the solo function on an input channel could cause its
    output signal be sent to the monitor outputs instead of the signal
    from the channel, which had monitoring activated.

  • Volume and balance level and mute and solo state changes originating from
    the UI now send the correct assigned MIDI CCs, allowing for MIDI feedback
    to controllers. Same for changes originating from reception of assigend MIDI
    CCs.

  • The handler for right-clicking the input channel mute/solo buttons, was
    accidentally

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

Updated: 14 Feb, 2021

This release has been in the making for a long time, and we now finally have support for VST3 plugins! With this release yabridge now for the very first time lets you use Windows VST3 plugins as if they were native Linux VST3 plugins. Other than allowing you to now use plugins that do not have an accompanying VST2 version, these VST3 plugins also provide some new features that are not available to VST2 plugins while also having lower processing overhead. Aside from VST3 support this release includes a lot of responsiveness and performance improvements as well as a number of important bug fixes. You can read more about all of this in the full changelog below.

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

Added

  • Yabridge 3.0 introduces the first ever true Wine VST3 bridge, allowing you to use Windows VST3 plugins in Linux VST3 hosts with full VST 3.7.1 compatibility. Simply tell yabridgectl to look for plugins in $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files/VST3, run yabridgectl sync, and your VST3 compatible DAW will pick up the new plugins

  • Updated GStreamer (gst1-java-core) and JNA libraries - more efficient across OS, and support for MSVC build of GStreamer on Windows.
  • Default location of GStreamer on Windows now queried from environment variables - should usually work correctly out of the box in most cases.
  • Added initial JLine-based Terminal IO when

Patroneo (which is Esperanto for "Pattern") is an easy to use, pattern based midi sequencer.

Updated: 15 Jan, 2021

28 months after the first release (2018-09-15) the Laborejo Software Suite releases version 2.0.0 of Patroneo.

Patroneo (which is Esperanto for "Pattern") is an easy to use, pattern based midi sequencer, a program that sends digital "notes" to software instruments such as synthesizers and samplers.
You have tracks with one pattern each. Turn on steps in the pattern to play musical notes. Switch the patterns on and off in a sequence to create a song structure. Connect external synthesizers and samplers to create sounds.
Please see the attached screenshot.

The new features integrate seamlessly into the existing workflow.
Old save files can still be loaded.

1) Tracks can now have different pattern lengths, allowing much more complex music. For this a widget was added next to the track name.
2) Each individual Pattern can now have any number of pitches (was fixed to 8 pitches before)
3) The Loop range can now contain multiple measures. Added GUI control next to loop button. Reminder: Loop-range is for trial&error, not for production.
4) A swing slider for rhythm-groups of 2 and 4 is now available for that 90s Dance Feeling (or Swing!)

It is released under GPLv3.
