Freecycle 0.6alpha is out!!

Freecycle (http://freecycle.redsteamrecords.com) is a beat slicer running on 
GNU/Linux platform using the QT toolkit, providing amplitude domain and 
frequency domain beat matching / zero crossing algorithms.
It exports sliced audio chunks and generates a MIDI file which can be used to 
play the sliced loop, or you can jam with it as soon as you’ve made slices 
using a midi keyboard or sequencer.

Freecycle also exports AKAI S5000/S6000/Z4/Z8 .AKP files to be used with your 
favorite sampler, SoundFont files, and supports slice drag and drop to/from 
or inside Freecycle.
It can process the audio inline using LADSPA effects, as well as apply 
envelopes to separate slices.

This new release replaces the PortAudio and PortMidi support with Alsa and 
alsaseq. PortAudio and PortMidi are still supported on systems without alsa. 
As a minor feature, Freecycle now provides the "Bark scale" for spectrogram 
plotting, which enhances the visibility of the audio wave in the frequency 
domain. Some bugfixes and minor optimisation as always..
