The Guitarix developers proudly present
Guitarix release 0.35.2
Guitarix is a tube amplifier simulation for
jack (Linux), with an additional mono and a stereo effect rack.
Guitarix includes a large list of plugins[*] and support LADSPA / LV2
plugs as well.
The guitarix engine is designed for LIVE usage, and feature ultra fast,
glitch and click free preset switching and is full Midi and/or remote
controllable (the Web UI is not included in the distributed tar ball).
This release mainly fix a build issue in Debian #839354 and ARCH
Beside that, the changes are:
* add stereo cabinet plugin
* fix bypass insert jack port with midi CC
* add menu option to set a midi controller for engine bypass
* add scroll wheel support to status images
* switch to use glib-compile-resources instead gdk-pixbuf-csource to
include images into libgxw.
* Fix Preset switching issue in lv2 amps and cabinet
* disable midi control for un-loaded plugs
* add check if LV2 ports are valid
* fix bug #34
Note that a couple of new additional guitar related plugs in LV2 format
been available on github now. They all work very well in guitarix.

This might come as an end to a long cycle indeed, really approaching a
final and last milestone, whatever...
But one thing is for sure: besides the prodigal but (pun, somewhat,
not intended:)), this wraps up the so called Qstuff* Fall'16 release
business deal .
Qtractor 0.8.0 (snobbiest graviton) is out!
And the release highlights are:
* Auto-backward location marker (NEW)
* Clip selection edge adjustment (NEW)
* Improved audio clip zoom-in resolution (NEW)
* Clip selection resilience (FIX)
* MIDI (N)RPN running status (FIX)
And the band plays on...
Maybe you can further decrypt the fresh juice from the change-log
below -- or rather never mind though and go for the grabs already ;).
Qtractor  is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application
written in C++ with the Qt framework . Target platform is Linux,
where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK ) for audio and the
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA ) for MIDI are the main
infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio
workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.

Wiki (on-going help wanted!):
Qtractor  is free, open-source Linux Audio  software,
distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL
) version 2 or later.
- - MIDI clip tools redo/undo processing refactored as much to avoid
replication over multiple hash-linked clips; MIDI clip editor's
floating selection/anchor event stability has been also improved, in
regard to MIDI tools processing range.
- - Auto-backward play-head location, when playback was last started, is
now shown on main track-view, as a momentary dark-red vertical line
- - LV2 plugin-in parameter optimization: stuff consecutive series of
plug-in's parameter value changes, as much as possible into one single
- - LV2_STATE__StateChanged is now recognized as a regular atom
notification event and raising the current session dirty flag, as
- - Adjusting clip selection edges is now possible and honored while on
the the main track-view canvas.
- - Audio peak file caching and rendering, as far as audio clip
wave-forms are concerned, have been refactored and optimized a couple
of notches higher, on the ephemeral and rather marginal throughput
- - Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application instance
- - Edit/Select Mode tool-buttons moved into single drop-down
tool-button on the main and MIDI editor's tool-bar.
- - Do not reset the current clip selection when updating the main
track-view extents eg. while zooming in or out.
- - Automation curve node editing auto-smoothing revisited; also fixed
input MIDI RPN/NRPN running status processing, which was crippling
some plug-in automation curve nodes, when saved in high-resolution
- - Fixed the visual play-head position (vertical red line) while
zooming in or out horizontally.
- - Almost complete overhaul on the configure script command line
options, wrt. installation directories specification, eg. --prefix,
- --bindir, --libdir, --datadir and --mandir.
- - LV2 Plugin-in worker/schedule fix: make request/response ring-buffer
writes in one go, hopefully atomic (suggested patch by Stefan
Westerfeld, while on SpectMorph, thanks).

Just want to let people know that the initial release of the MIDI over
BLE drivers for Linux are ready and waiting for review on the
linux-bluetooth mailing list. Hopefully it will be release on the
next version of BlueZ.
I invite everyone to test it out and review the patch so we can improve
it as much as possible.
There is also a video I made just to demonstrate it working on a
Linux desktop, but I have also tested on Embedded Systems such as
Raspberry Pi 2 successfully.
If you want more information on how to setup your system to work
properly, please let me know.
PS: I would like send kudos to ROLI Ltd. since they allowed me to
work on this as a full-time job.
for the shake of easiness I've pushed a release of screcord.lv2 to github.
screcord.lv2 is a ultra light LV2 recording plugin, which will save your
audio stream to disk.
screcord features stemless recording, means it open a new file when max
file size of wav file is reached.
screcord comes without GUI, but provide a record button, a format
selector, and a clipping indicator.
screcord use libsndfile http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/
Apparently the upcoming versions of openSUSE Leap don't have a .pc file for
ncurses, and CMake's findpackage() requires that.
Does anyone know of an alternative method of configuring CMake for ncurses?

That's interesting. I never thought of using this plug-in for this
purpose. Do you have any presets to share?
