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

  • 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

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.

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.
    2. During sample point fetching, the new sample point is now cached until it's
      time to read the next sample point. This can sometimes make a very small
      difference for sampledata-changing ProTracker effects (E8x / EFx).
  • Removed BLEP'ing of volume changes, as it was no longer needed with the new way of doing volume changing, and it saves up some CPU time

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...

v1.0.0-alpha.25.1

MusiKernel is an all-in-one DAW and suite of instrument & effect plugins.

Updated: 05 Sep, 2021

Change log:

  • New Windows installer, can do a proper system install or a portable flash drive install
  • Many improvements to the plugin rack, too many to list, so you will just have to try it yourself
  • Many cosmetic fixes and improvements
  • Fonts: fixes and improvements
  • Improved performance and stability on Raspberry Pi 4, especially when using a 4k display (not that anybody else probably uses that setup)
  • Improved performance and stability at < 5ms audio device latency. As with all audio software, still heavily dependent on your CPU and audio device
  • Optional smoother playback animations, enabled automatically on fast PCs

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

  • Internal: Reorganize code protecting s7 gc
    variables a little bit. Might have fixed some
    potential problems.
  • Internal: Preallocate a little bit of memory for

    from non-debug builds. Might improve performance
    a little bit.
  • Internal: Make sure memory allocated by the RT
    memory allocator is always aligned at maximum.
    This could theoretically increase performance.

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!

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

Updated: 15 Jul, 2021

I'm very excited to finally be able to share this new yabridge release with all of you! In terms of changes this has been the largest update since yabridge 3.0.0. Usability improvements were the main focus of this update, but this release also includes another round of optimizations to reduce yabridge's DSP load overhead even further. The most important change there is that the audio processing implementation has been completely rewritten to use a hybrid approach of a shared memory audio buffer combined with yabridge's usual socket-based message passing. This reduces the amount of additional work needed to process a buffer of audio significantly while still maintaining all of the benefits of yabridge's flexible communication design.

On the usability front, the main standout feature here is support for drag-and-drop from a Windows plugin running under yabridge to a native application, such as your DAW. This is the first time that this has been possible under Wine, and it should make using plugins that can generate audio or MIDI much more enjoyable. Another improvement worth mentioning is that yabridge will now actively prevent plugins from hiding the mouse cursor in incorrect ways. This prevents the cursor from permanently disappearing at random

  • 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.

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

Updated: 09 Jun, 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 thread names to all worker threads created by yabridge. This makes it easier to debug and profile yabridge.

Fixed

  • Fixed the IPlugView::canResize() cache added in yabridge 3.2.0 sometimes not being initialized properly, preventing host-driven resizes in certain situations. This was mostly noticeable in Ardour.
  • Fixed mouse clicks in VST2 editors in Tracktion Waveform being offset vertically by a small amount because of the way Waveform embeds VST2 editors.
  • Fixed Shattered Glass Audio plugins crashing when opening the plugin editor because those plugins don't initialize Microsoft COM before trying to use it. We now always initialize the Microsoft COM library unconditionally, instead of doing it only when a plugin fails to initialize without it.
  • Fixed incorrect version strings being reported by yabridge when building from a tarball that has been extracted inside of an unrelated git repository. This could happen when building the yabridge AUR package with certain AUR helpers.
  • Fixed the log message for the cached IPlugView::canResize() VST3 function calls implemented in yabridge

SonoBus can stream high-quality, low-latency peer-to-peer audio between devices over the intern

Updated: 04 Jun, 2021

SonoBus 1.4.6 Release Notes

  • Added input reverb effects, which allow you to add reverb to your input channels that get sent out to others (and heard by you). Currently the reverb will only be sent to others when Send Stereo or Send Mono is selected (not Send Multichannel). Find the reverb send level for the input channel group in the FX button popup in the input mixer. The reverb parameters themselves are in the "In Reverb" button at the top of the input mixer.

  • Now the reverb buses (both input and output reverb bus) default to be at full level, while the default reverb sends for each channel are all the way down. So if you want reverb on your input (input or monitored), or on a connected user, you will need to turn up the reverb send from the FX (or M.FX).

  • Added accessibility support for blind or vision-impaired users on Mac and Windows. There are potential improvements planned for the future, but this is much better than the non-existent support before!

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
