The second stable release (0.9.0) of JAMin - the JACK Audio Mastering
interface is now available for download.

JAMin is a GPL-licensed, realtime mastering processor designed to
bring out the detail in recorded music and provide a final layer of
polish.  Every effort has been made to ensure a clean, distortion-free
signal path.  All processing elements use linear-phase filtering to
eliminate phase distortion.

JAMin runs on Linux using the JACK Audio Connection Kit, a low-latency
audio server.  JACK connects multiple applications to a single sound
device, and also share audio among themselves.  We rely on other JACK
applications (like ardour, ecasound, or rezound) for playback and

Usage instructions

Changes since jamin-0.8.0

	* Limiter improvements:
          -- uses new fast lookahead limiter (LADSPA:1913) from the
          swh-plugins >= 0.4.6.  The old limiter had some undesirable
          sonic artifacts.
          -- changed order of final gain and limiter stages.

	* OSC control for scene changes:
	  -- accepts "osc.udp://localhost:4444/jamin/scene" messages
          -- new `jamin-scene' command sends them
	  -- new jamin-cont plugin (LADSPA:1912) sends scene change
	     messages to the JAMin process via OSC.  

	     (This plugin works with ardour, ecamegapedal and
	     applyplugin, but segfaults in jack-rack when removed.)

	* Increase number of scenes from 6 to 20

	* GUI improvements
	  -- extensive context-sensitive help
	  -- color editor for highlights and text
	  -- options pulldown menu for spectrum, crossfade, and EQ

        * Better bypass control
	  -- specific bypass controls for EQ and limiter
	  -- separate Active/Solo/Bypass for each crossover band

	* Global state settings saved in XML file.

	* Expanded Russian translation

        * Many bug fixes.
