Hello everybody,

Finally, after what does seem like ages (mainly because there literally
has been ages) since the last release, here is finally what we have
decided to call MusE 0.9!

MusE is a multitrack midi/audio sequencer with support for internal and
external softsynths, in the same vein as popular commercial music
applications like Cubase, Logic, etc.

MusE has been in transition towards a redesign dubbed MusE 1.0 and there
wasn't supposed to be any more development in the old (0.7,0.8, now 0.9)
But, due to fresh developer interest and lots of angry users, we decided
to resurrect the old codebase :)
(I didn't mean the part about angry users, we love you all! :-) )

The MusE homepage is at:

The download is available at:

Some major changes since 0.8.1:
- Working -old style- automation system, pretty much all parameters
   should be automatable, audio and midi.
- Redesigned Solo/Mute system, works much better
- lots of "things" added
- lots of bugs fixed
(exchange quotations as needed)
