Zynaddsubfx 2.5.2 - “The Space of Two Weeks” Release
A mere three months after the last release, the Zynaddsubfx team proudly
announces Version 2.5.2, the “Space of Two Weeks” release. In addition to
stability improvements, it adds some exciting and useful new features:
* Add MIDI-Learn serialization - this allows for midi mappings to be saved
and loaded, a huge boon for midi control workflow.
* Add pink noise source - pink noise is usually considered the most
“musical” or natural of noise sources, like rain, waterfalls, or ocean
* Restore mousewheel functionality - a sorely missed feature, provides easy
and consistent course and fine tuning of parameters. Mouse drag has
matching behavior now as well.
* Restore bank LSB/MSB MIDI support - makes all presets in a bank
selectable by MIDI.
* Improve tip windows - if enabled, shows you helpful tips you never knew
* Improve oscdoc output - this utility documents all the OSC messages that
can control zyn and lists and describes them at
http://fundamental-code.com/zyn-ports2/ These messages could be used by OSC
apps on remote machines, android or iOS devices to control zyn.
* Restore External Oscillator/Modulator functionality - now you can use
external sources for new audio waveforms, or modulation signals.
* Remove remaining globals - a feat in itself, this results in safer,
cleaner, better designed code, additional stability, and sets the stage for
using zyn as a plugin.
* Fix UI connection bugs - this improves the workflow and reliability for
those using zyn in headless systems, controlling it through the zyn user
interface on a remote machine.
* Added shortcuts on edit buttons - holding shift or control when opening
the edit window of several features now opens a different, commonly useful
window (i.e. shift+click of the ADsynth edit button brings up the voice
* Other miscellaneous bug fixes
For more detail on these improvements read the in-depth announcement on the

Thanks to all who contributed bug reports and feedback! We can always use
more! This release has commits from Mark McCurry, Christopher Oliver,
Filipe Coelho, Johannes Lorenz, and Hans Selasky, with translation from
Oliver Humbert. Naturally, we recommend all users and packagers update to
take advantage of these fixes and features.
Now go make some noise!

QMidiarp-0.6.3 fixes an annoying regression in the Arp LV2 module, where the
pattern display did not follow changes made in the pattern field or when
selecting a preset.
It also fixes the LV2 plugin user interfaces when building with --enable-qt5.
NOTE (again) that when built against Qt5 these plugins will work only in Qt5
plugin hosts at this time (i.e. Rui's Qtractor or drobilla's jalv.qt5, but no
longer Ardour), however updates of drobilla's suil library also seem to be on
Please update to this version and....
o LV2 Arp: Regression: Display updates no longer worked when changing
o Configure script caused trouble on certain build systems (bug #15
raised by the Mageia team)
o LV2: Qt5 UIs did not have the correct UI type entry in ttl files
o LV2 Arp: Factory pattern presets are now accessible as LV2 presets
o LV2 Arp: Latch mode now also available in LV2 plugin
QMidiArp is a MIDI arpeggiator, phrase generator and controller LFO for JACK
and ALSA. It can run multiple synchronized arpeggiators, LFOs and step
sequencers. The modules are also available as LV2 plugins with Qt user
interface. All in all it is a handy live tool.
There is now also a github repo that will be kept in sync with the sf repo for
the time being
