Dear all, 

here is QMidiArp 0.6.5. Another year has passed, and qmidiarp again only 
slightly changes, improves, adapts itself. A few more factory patterns were 
added to the Arpeggiator, a new "As Played" repeat mode has sneaked in, and 
for making things easier the MIDI OMNI mode is now default when modules are 

QMidiArp also builds against Qt5 by default now (it's about time ;) ), no more 
--enable-qt5 needed at configure stage.




Here is the full changelog:

qmidiarp-0.6.5 (2017-12-17)

o MIDI OMNI Mode receiving on all MIDI channels is now available and
even default for all modules.
o Arp: Some more 'factory' patterns added to the LV2 presets and to
the .qmidiarprc file. Latter requires deleting the original one in
the home directory and launching the standalone application.
o Arp: New pattern repeat mode "As Played" for following the played
note order instead of reorganizing them up, down or random.
o Arp: For deliberately clearing buffered incoming notes the modules
now all react to ALL_NOTES_OFF and ALL_SOUND_OFF MIDI messages.
o LV2: The DSP ("generic") parameter interface has gotten some
improvements for better usability (thanks Holger Wirtz for input on

*Fixed Bugs*
o LV2: Latch mode was not working properly when using release function.
o LV2 Arp: when running with host transport sync, transport start
caused received notes to be cleared. This also cleared those notes
received before the transport was starting and led to missed notes
especially in qtractor. This should work better now. (Thanks to
Webmadman for reporting, and to Rui).
o Seq and LFO: the "Note Off" option had no effect (regression).
o Recent Files menu in main app displayed extra characters with Qt5.

*General changes*
o Building against Qt5 is now default. No more --enable-qt5 needed.
o LV2: Category set to MIDIPlugin instead of Instrument
o The DSP classes including the LV2 DSP modules no longer use
Qt libraries. However the LV2 and App GUIs do.
o New build configure options for more flexibility
--enable-alsa (default=yes) set no for building on systems without alsa
--enable-buildapp (default=yes) set no for building only LV2 modules
--enable-lv2-pluginuis (default=yes) set no for LV2 module dsps only



QMidiArp is a MIDI arpeggiator, phrase generator and controller LFO for ALSA 
and JACK. It can run multiple synchronized arpeggiators, LFOs and step 
sequencers. The modules are also available as LV2 plugins with Qt user
