[ANN] Qtractor 0.9.11 - The Mauerfall'30 Release

Postby rncbc » Sat Nov 09, 2019 10:21 am

Hallo!

Not making history or a revolution but as peaceful as thirty years ago ;)
And the change-log goes as follows:

- MIDI Instrument and patch, bank and program names are now correctly updated on their respective track-list (left pane) columns.
- Avoid copying/replicating dirty MIDI clip files, for yet untitled/scratch sessions.
- Transport/Backward commands now honoring edit-tail, loop-end and punch-out points, when playback is not rolling.
- A session name (sub-)directory is now suggested on every new session properties dialog.
- Avoid adding any extraneous clip replica when Ctrl+dragging on either of its edges.
- When using autotools and ./configure --with-qt=..., it is also necessary to adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable (after a merge request by plcl aka. Pedro López-Cabanillas, while on qmidinet, thanks).
- Fixing a potential crash-effect in switching MIDI output buses on tracks that are set to show audio output monitoring meters, is on going still.

Description:
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.

Awesome work Rui. Thank you.
Quick question, how do I fan out plugins with multi channels like DrumGizmo into individual tracks for each instrument of the drumkits when recording the midi drum track to .wav?

you create a new audio output bus with as many channels as the DG;
on the MIDI track (or bus) where the DG is inserted, plugin list right-click (context-)menu > Audio > select here the new audio bus;
however this might not be useful in any way but just fanning out DG with as many JACK audio output ports to be processed outboard perhaps; to use DG effectively in qtractor you better resort to use its integrated mix-down to stereo, AFAICT the option it's been there in DG somewhere, according to what deva aka Bent Bisballe Nyeng once told me a couple of years ago:)
hth.

EDIT: stupid me. Of course you can connect the outputs of the "many channels bus" as appropriate to several buses (should be duplex) to process the different channels differently.

You can add an INSERT into this new audio bus. Then you can use the INSERT SEND to connect different channels to separate buses, say a bus for the kick, a bus for the stereo overheads and so on. You should then set the DRY and WET faders to 0.

Most people will want to use a reverb on the snare and toms but not on the kick.
