spectmorph-0.5.1 has been released.

If you haven't watched our video tutorial for the instrument editor
added in 0.5.0, you can do so here: https://youtu.be/JlugWYPDp84

This release introduces statically linked generic 64 bit linux plugin
binaries, so even if the packages don't match your linux version, you
should be able to install these without compiling. This is a new
feature, let me know if it doesn't work for you.

Overview of Changes in spectmorph-0.5.1:
* Add new LFO modes (saw, square, random)
* Support generic 64-bit linux binaries
  - new linux file selector (no longer needs Qt)
  - ship font for static build
* Fix crashes caused by fftw planner being used from multiple threads
* Ported all python2 code to python3
* Support midi all notes off
* Implement LV2 StateChanged
* French translation for smjack desktop file (Olivier Humbert)
* Thread race fix (JP Cimalando)
* Minor fixes and cleanups

What is SpectMorph?
SpectMorph is a free software project which allows to analyze samples of
musical instruments, and to combine them (morphing). It can be used to
construct hybrid sounds, for instance a sound between a trumpet and a
flute; or smooth transitions, for instance a sound that starts as a
trumpet and then gradually changes to a flute.

SpectMorph ships with many ready-to-use instruments which can be
combined using morphing.

SpectMorph is implemented in C++ and licensed under the GNU LGPL version 3

Integrating SpectMorph into your Work
SpectMorph is currently available for Linux, Windows and macOS users.
Here is a quick overview of how you can make music using SpectMorph.

- VST Plugin, especially for proprietary solutions that don't support LV2.
  (Available on Linux and 64-bit Windows/macOS)
- LV2 Plugin, for any sequencer that supports it.
- JACK Client.

There are many audio demos on the website, which demonstrate morphing
between instruments.
