This is Steinway_IMIS soundfont, version 2.2.
This version fixes the issue with loops. I hope this is the good one
and there are no more remaining major bugs.
Marcos is a little busy right now, so he asked me to make this fix. He
is thinking to make other improvements, so expect more updates soon.
I've pushed the source for guitarix.vst Linux version to github.
guitarix.vst is a VST3 wrapper for guitarix using JUCE.
It allow to load your guitarix presets into the DAW of your choice.
This is still a alpha version, it may contain bugs and/or may change in
for more information visit the project page.
I have some sheet music from an old relative of my wife. They are nicely printed
on paper (printing shop) and 105 years old this year. I would like to scan them
and hopefully have them converted to lilypond or xml or whatever is used today.
It seems that MusicXML is the most used today but the best would be lilypond.
Anyone know of such software for Linux? I saw an app for iPhone and Android that
seemed promising but much cooler would be a native Linux program.
I just have released SoundTracker v1.0.4-pre1. I've decided to make a
feature-freeze at this point, this means that 1.0.4 will have no new
features comparing to this pre-release, only fixes and small
improvements if something will be found inconvenient. So I ask everyone
who has interest in SoundTracker to test this release. Here are main
features of the 1.0.4-pre1 release comparing to 1.0.3:
- Full-screen mode
- Volume of all samples of an instrument / all samples in the module can
be set to a value, not only gained. Also all samples panning can be
adjusted. These functions can also modify the explicitly given values of
volume / panning of notes in patterns
- Improved compatibility with FastTracker, also MOD files are played
- Unused patterns are listed in the Pattern Sequence Editor
- Sampling rate can be specified while saving a sample as WAV
- New module optimizer with many control parameters
* Track Editor:
- Moving notes up / down is implemented
* Sample Editor:
- External programs can be used for samples processing. The interaction
between such a program is described using XML spec, no ST recompiling
- The whole sample is drawn after recording
- Exponential / reverse exponential volume fade transients
* Instrument Editor:
- Envelope inversion and shifting is implemented

I have digitised a few last tapes. The sound isn't too bad, but all tapes
appear to be a little too bass heavy. Since I only work in the terminal I
approach the issue with Csound that provides a lot of tools. All kinds of
filters, rms/peak metres, an lufs metre and more.
First: did I miss an obvious commandline tool that would produce a
reasonable solution for that?
There are two main issues that I try to improve halfway automatically. 1.
Sometimes the stereo balance is a little wrong with one channel being slightly
louder than the other. 2. Imrpoving the frequency spectrum, flattening it a
For 1. I have started by taking the file's peak of both channels seperately
and simply multiplying them so the peaks match. Over a whole tape side this
should be approximately the same. Or should I go with a different measurement?
lufs integrated loudness, momentary or short term maximums?
For the second issue, I am unsure. I have split the audio into frequency bands
using octaves, more or less. So the first band goes up to 100Hz, the next to
200, then 400, 800 and so on. I have used Csound's tone and atone filters:
atone highpass filter:
and the matching tone lowpass filter:
Then on each band for each channel I run the lufs metre, storing the maximum
momentary and short term values and the integrated loudness.
Though I wonder: are the frequency ranges and type of filter reasonable? If so
how would I approximate a reasonably flat spectrum? Which values to
compare to what? I mean: what kind of measurement to use and should I
compare adjecent bands and extrapolate fitting values from that or
compare one frequency band's measurement to the same measurement on the
unprocessed full-band audio?
Any hints and practical suggestions are very welcome.
Thank you and best wishes,
