Ceres 0.37 -> 0.38
-Updated default Jack port names from
alsa_pcm:[out/in]_* to alsa_pcm:[playback/record]_*
-Test for pygtk2 instead of pygtk1, and write a message
to stdout about what to do if pygtk2 is installed instead of pygtk1.
-Made the Save button in the preference window also update
current settings. Less confusing.
-Increased max number of soundchannels from 4 to 8.
-Added option to choose between "ceres" and "ceres-<pid>"
for the jack client name.
-Wrote an explanation how to install ceres on a machine with
pygtk2 instead of pygtk1.

Are you fed up with having a computer only just fast enough to sequence a
couple of audio tracks at a time, and no where near fast enough for software
Wav Composer Not Toilet is another modular synthesis program, but unlike
many others does not work in real time at all. wcnt gives you sequencing,
sampling, and synthesis without the need for fast hardware, although a
little patience is required!
* lots of simple modules as well as the more complex.
* ghosting of riffs into mono-phonic sequencer.
* multiple sequencers, output wav files, mixers.
* ADSR's and user defined waveforms with unlimited sub sections and shape
* sampler has modulatable start position, playback can be triggered from
* sampler has 'anti-clipping' ramp.
* unlimited mixer channels
* no GUI, but, a near english synth definition language
* command line help

hi... this is my first time online since lad Conference.
so i would like to announce galan-0.2.14 (as seen on lad Conference)
galan is another modular synthesizer. It supports sub patches like pd
and jmax. But has separation of mesh and Controls.
It also supports OpenGL Scene Graphs which can be controlled by your
audio data, the sequencers etc...
homepage is at
find the download links from there...

PyJack 0.1, Initial Release
This is a Python module which provides an interface to the Jack Audio
Server. It is possible to access the Jack graph to manipulate port
connections, monitor graph change events, and to perform
soft-realtime audio capture and playback using Numeric Python arrays.
More details, including caveats regarding realtime usage, can be found in
the package documentation.
This software is released under the GPL.

P.S. I will not CC to jackit-devel for future release announcements. This
is only for the initial. Thanks.
driver, library and utils packages 0.9.2 were released.
- more configure fixes
- vxpocket driver fixes
- fixed oops in pcm open() routine - error path
- fixed ice1712/vt1724 rate locking controls
- USB audio - fixed disconnection
- added dsnoop and dshare PCM plugins
- aplay fix (endless loop for raw type)

Alsa-announce mailing list
1. A short summary of changes
A new native Python implementation of the ECI API has been added to
the package. Ecasound.el (ecasound-emacs) has been updated to version
0.8.2. Oggs and mp3s can be now streamed directly from network.
Author information is now visible in the LADSPA plugin descriptions.
Changes in ALSA-0.9 support improve usability of ecasound with
the new ALSA dmix PCM plugin. There have been many important
bugfixes including correct handling of short parameter fades,
broken chainsetup level looping, problems with creating temporary
files and minor build system issues.
2. What is ecasound?
Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio
processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback,
recording and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect
processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. Ecasound supports
a wide range of audio inputs, outputs and effect algorithms.
Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their
parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators
and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console mode user-interface is included
in the package.
Ecasound is licensed under the GPL. The Ecasound Control Interface
(ECI) is licensed under the LGPL.

Audio software for Linux!
libjackasyn is a LD_PRELOAD library that converts programs written
for the OSS system into jack aware applications (sort of).
It will eventually get replaced by the ALSA jack plugins, but as it
existed before, and I never have "officially" released it, here it is.
It is still beta, but several programs already work with it.
It is easy to use, just start your applications with

Please report back if you have problems. If you find a program that
runs and is not listed in the file "WORKING", please let me know.
Hi evrybody !
(sorry for my poor english)
I am developing a live Linux CD, called LinuxConsole
First it was made to use a PC box as a console games.
Now it plays games, music, videos, browse Web, disks, burn CDs,...
It is a "modularized" CD, the 'core' system (drivers+X11+Window maker)
stays in memory, while modules (mozilla, games, cups, openoffice) stay
on CD or hard disk (ext fs,fat,ntfs,...).
I'am using ALSA drivers.
I search someone to help me to make an 'audio' module, with most linux
If someone is intrested, thanks to post a message to LinuxConsole forum
