Dear friends, this is the 0.5.0 release of QMidiArp.

As a major new feature, it brings a parameter storage and switch center.
You can now store parameters, sequences and waveforms of all modules
together, and recall them all at once or individually by mouse click or 

MIDI CC. The recall 
behaviour can be adjusted to take place either at the

end of a chosen 
module pattern or after a given number of beats.
This adds some more 
versatility to QMidiArp as a handy Live tool. 

But you can hide away the control panel if you don't need it...It's an Arp 

and step sequencer after all.

And yes there are also some big and small bugs fixed, and surely some 

new to discover!

qmidiarp-0.5.0 (2012-03-24)

New Features
o New global storage handler allows storing and switching of parameters
and patterns between different storage locations. The restore switch
can be triggered after a specified module reaches its pattern end or
after a full number of beats. Switch can be done for a specific
module only or for all modules globally.
o Storage switches can be done by MIDI controller. The controller value
specifies the storage location.
o A new Legato option permits module triggering also by notes played

Fixed Bugs
o ALSA backend had become unstable in version 0.4.4 by some direct
function calls across threads.
o LFO waveform display didn't get updated during recording
o LFO recording caused restarting/triggering when it shouldn't
o Seq cloning led to crashes under certain conditions
