Long overdue but better late than never:
QjackCtl, the good old Qt GUI interface to JAVK Audio Connection Kit is
back on a new latest dot releasse.
As read from the changelog:
- Fixed default settings for the freebob backend (JACK >= 0.103.0).
- CPU Load status label now says correctly DSP Load.
- The most recently used patchbay definitions can now be correctly
selected in round-robin fashion from its drop-down list widget.
- Avoid mixing JACK MIDI ports with regular audio ports on the
Connections and Patchbay widgets; strictly list only audio ports.
- Added 192k sample rate to setup settings drop down list (as kindly
reminded by Klaus Zimmermann, thanks).
- Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag, which were
causing some sticky size behavior on some window managers.

JackMix, the ultimate mixer app for jack hits another milestone:
"Sliders vs. Knobs"
From the "programming during Linux-Audio-Conference"-depth. comes the
next release of JackMix.
Whats new since 0.2?
Inspired by a lot of talking during LAC I have redone the sliders.
They still look kind of similar to some vu-meters but I think it isn't
that bad anymore.
But there are new knobs in this version too. They did get positive
feedback during the conference. :-)
The knobs from 0.2 didn't seem to scale well. At least not from the
The biggest change is that version 0.3 saves the own state to
xml-files which can be read again later. Also adding a filename on the
commandline opens that file on startup. This enables version 0.4 to
And there is a new interface so backend can interact with the gui in a
better way. The main effect now is that if jackd is not running its
not the jackmix mainwindow that is complaining but the backend popping
up a message.

Have a nice weekend,
Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.

Pure Data Spring School 2007
With Frank Barknecht and Chun Lee
MAY 14th-25th 2007 - BOOK NOW!
GOTO10 at CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS (CCA), GLASGOW
A two weeks boot camp dedicated to free software tools for audio-visual
art and performance.
Pure Data is a free and open source real-time graphical programming
environment used by artists to create a range of visual arts, theatre,
dance, audio, installation, performance and media art works.
Pure Data is ideal for those looking to integrate technology into their
work for the first time, or advanced media artists looking to explore
new tools and new ways to combine them in a unified environment. It is
easy to use Pure Data to create interactive environments, link
animations and sound, control hardware and electronics, stream audio,
generate real time visuals and develop interfaces for other programs.
In this intensive two week course, participants will learn Pure Data
from scratch and explore in detail some of its most exciting extensions.
Participants will discover real time sound design, audiovisual
techniques, physical modelling and pure:dyne, a specialised version of
Linux operating system for live audio-visual work. All software used is
available for free, if you bring your own computer you can have copies
installed on it. A number of pre-installed computers will also be
available for use in the workshop.
The software is available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows operating
systems. Support on installing and using the software for Linux and OSX
users will be available, but please note we cannot provide support for
Windows users in this workshop.
The Pure Data Spring School 2007 is brought to you by GOTO10, CCA and
OpenLab Glasgow. The tutors are Frank Barknecht, and Chun Lee, two
experienced artists who work closely with Pure Data in live performance
projects and who have also contributed to the development of the
The project is supported by Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, the
Goethe Institute, Glasgow School of Art, and the Electron Club.

pure:dyne has been created to provide a complete and ready made
environment for artists and developers who are looking for a free
operating system dedicated to real time audio and video processing.
The pure:dyne project provides tools and an optimized platform to try out
and work on a large range of applications. It comes with optimized and
tested software such as Supercollider, Icecast, csound, Packet Forth,
fluxus and much more, including of course Pure Data and a great collection
of essential externals and abstractions (PDP, PiDiP, Gem, GridFlow,
RRadical, PixelTango ...). The Studio "classics" have not been forgotten
(Ardour, LADSPA, seq24, Audacity ...) and numerous essential graphics
software are also bundled (Inkscape, Gimp, Blender ...).
The pure:dyne project is a growing community effort maintained by media
artists for media artists. It is an ideal platform for audiovisual
performances, installations and FLOSS+Art workshops and courses.
- Jack oriented GNU/Linux distribution
- Complete FLOSS Home studio solution and live performance system
- No bloat ! fast minimal desktops (fluxbox, evilwm, dwm)
- Live Distribution (works the same on CD, HD, USB, ...)
- UnionFS system and multiuser support
- Low Latency Kernel (Ingo Molnar's -rt kernel patches)
- Support for Firewire audio devices (FreeBoB inside)
- Optionnal support for NVIDIA and ATI evil blobs
- mmx + sse gcc optimisations applied when relevant
- Compatible with any dyne:II modules
- Easy installation, maintenance and update
- SDK tools (dynesdk + milkman) and gcc included for customisations
- International Languages support

GOTO10 would like to thank jaromil (http://rastasoft.org) for providing
a very nice base system to work on and on which we can grow pretty things
We would also like to thank everyone on the pure:dyne mailing list for
their constant help, feedback and support.
We are very happy to announce the CLAM 1.0 "Berlin" release while
having splendid views of the Alps in the flight to Berlin for the
Linux Audio Conference.
This release is indeed a major milestone for the project and it
opens a door to the development of exciting new features, so keep
tuned! Apart of these big changes expect also bug fixes (yes 1.0
have bugs) as we move on.
Learn about CLAM in the web: http://clam.iua.upf.edu
Last months have been very positive: many new people showed
interest and contributed in the mailing lists, CLAM got packaged
for almost every Linux distribution, and we got enormous activity
in the svn source repository. We also welcome Andreas as an active
developer and we hope that the forthcoming Google Summer of Code
will also bring new talent aboard.
These are the substantial changes from 0.98:
NetworkEditor (now in version 1.0 like the CLAM libs) let the user
embed any Ladspa plugin in the network as if it was a CLAM
processing. This combined with the fact that you already can
compile a network as a new Ladspa plugin library bringing a new
world of possibilities. Portaudio is now the common stable audio
back-end and its usability have been improved. However, jack is
still taken as the default back-end in linux and osx. The interaction
between Network and its FlowControl have been totally redesigned,
fixing many bugs related with complex network topologies. A new
FreewheelingNetworkPlayer class permits offline execution of
networks, and it comes along with a new binary for command-line
use. At users petition we've also added SMSTools related
command-line binaries. On the signal processing front, we have
added a fftw3 and experimental vowel synthesis processings.
As always, see detailed changes in the change-logs 
Find in the download section the usual binaries for Mac OSX
(Intel and PowerPc), Windows, Linux (Debian sid, Ubuntu Edgy and
Feisty) and also new packages for Fedora Core 6 and OpenSuse.
Thanks Fernando, Toni, Paul and others for the great help with

Vamp Plugin API and SDK 1.0 released
The Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary, University of London are happy to
announce the 1.0 release of the Vamp Plugin API and software developers kit.
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.
The Vamp plugin API is also used by the Sonic Visualiser audio visualisation
and analysis application.
The development of the Vamp plugin API and Sonic Visualiser was partially
supported by the SIMAC project (http://www.semanticaudio.org/) and the
EASAIER project (http://www.easaier.org/), with assistance from CHARM
