Hi everybody,

I'm glad to announce the first pre-release of SoundTracker v1.0.1

You can download it here: 

I would say, v1.0.1 is a big step ahead from v1.0.0. It contains 
numerous improvements everywhere and some important bugfixes, among 
which I have fixed the annoying (at least for me) performance issue with 
Gtk-2 bitmap graphics. Now SoundTracker is about so fast as old Gtk-1 


What is new in soundtracker-1.0.1-pre1 (21-Feb-2020):

* Improved mouse usage in the instrument editor (yaliaev)

* Indication of pressed keys in the instrument editor (yaliaev)

* Better look of the scopes (yaliaev)

addition to
   the slider; ability to determine the optimal amplification (yaliaev)

   copying samples and instruments, mixing samples and tuning a sample using
   another one as a reference (yaliaev)

* A new method of waveforms' drawing in the sample displays in addition to
   the existing one (yaliaev)
