Amuc (the Amsterdam Music Composer) version 1.5 has been available for some
monthes already, but here is the official announcement.
Amuc is a light-weight tool for composing and playing music. 'Light-weight' in
the sense of not needing graphical or other toolkits. It is very fast and
offers useful features to help the inexperienced composer. Now it also
incorporates a pitch extractor, translating a wave file to notes. Listen to a
fast solo by John Coltrane on saxophone, followed by the extracted tune with
a simple accompaniment, and then with a synthetic bass gitar and sampled drums:
a2jmidid is daemon for exposing legacy ALSA sequencer applications in
JACK MIDI system. It is based on jack-alsamidi-0.5 (jackd alsa seq midi
backend) by Dmitry Baikov. The main purpose is to ease usage of legacy,
not JACK-ified apps, in JACK MIDI enabled systems.
New in this release is addition of configure script (autotools) that
enables compatibility with different JACK MIDI API variants.
* One JACK client per ALSA sequencer client
* More control on what ports to bridge (currently bridging is fixed to
* Real daemonization with log file, init.d script, etc.
If someone wants to contribute please, contact me, or send patches, or
request inclusion (Gna! a2jmidid project). As usual, packagers are more
than welcome too.

Due some live thinbgs I decided to release horgand-1.14.
Also you can try the DSSI plugin available on the website.
Hundreds of new presets (Strings, Brass, ... ) availables on the website.
Five new waveforms.
All the waveforms are available for LFO and DSP effects.
Back to ALSA if JACK is not available.
Code improved for less CPU usage.
Some minor bugs fixed.
Version 1.1b of the Vamp plugin SDK is now available.
Vamp is a plugin API for audio analysis and feature extraction plugins written
in C or C++. Its SDK features an easy-to-use set of C++ classes for plugin
and host developers, a reference host implementation, example plugins, and
documentation. It is supported across Linux, OS/X and Windows.
Version 1.1b is a minor update with a small number of build and bug fixes.
The prior version 1.1 of the SDK introduced a new set of classes designed to
make it very simple for an application to use Vamp plugins, without needing
to do complicated plugin lookup or audio processing themselves.
Plugins and hosts remain 100% binary compatible with those built using the 1.0
version of the SDK.
we would like to remind you that the submission deadline for
installation proposals for the exhibition at Linux Audio Conference
2008, 28.2.-2.3.2008 at Cologne, ends tonight. Please find the full
call for installations below and on the web at
This site also contains all the other calls, which remain open until
1st of december.
On behalf of the LAC2008 organisation team, sincerely,

i am happy to announce my new release 're-reading', which is the first
release of mattin's new label 'Free Software Series'.
Debut album from the PD master Tim Blechmann (now living in Vienna).
Many programmers try to show off the possibilities of their programs,
instead Tim achieves the most focus and rigorous contemporary electronic
music that I heard since Dion Workman.
're-reading' is a dual net and cdr release, it can be downloaded from
http://www.archive.org/details/re-reading, the packaged cdr can be
ordered from http://freesoftwareseries.org/ or from myself for 10€
many thanks to mattin for releasing this piece ...

I've just released Q 7.8 which sports some important bugfixes and some
nice new features. The most important addition probably is that Q now
has a complete Qt interface. You can find the sources and a ready-made
RPM for Linux (which contains almost everything surrounding Q, including
the interfaces to Faust, MidiShare, Pd and SuperCollider and the
multimedia examples) on the Q download page:
For those of you who haven't heard about Q yet: It is a GPLed,
modern-style functional programming language with good library support
for multimedia and computer music applications. (Somewhat like Haskell,
but interpreted and dynamically typed, and with much better system and
multimedia libraries.) More information about Q can be found on the Q
website at: http://q-lang.sourceforge.net

On behalf of Andreas Persson, I am pleased to announce the release of gigedit
0.1.0 , an instrument editor for gig files. You can find a screenshot
* With gigedit it is possible to modify existing, as well as to create new
Gigasampler format instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by
LinuxSampler, but now also by Gigastudio.
* You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or "attached" to
LinuxSampler. The latter case allows you to play and edit instruments at
the same time, making all your modifications immediately audible, without
having to reload the instruments into a sampler.
* You can simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel
and clicking on "Edit" in either QSampler or JSampler, which automatically
spawns gigedit in "attached" mode.
Plese notice that this is still a very young instrument editor, so better
backup your .gig files before editing them with this application!
