Re: Tracktion-on-Linux - jotting some notes down

Prior to version 9.3.4 of Tracktion Waveform, [Cmd]+drag was used to timestretch clips. This was inconsistent with the documentation, which specifies the [Alt] key. Version 9.3.4 [still in beta] changes the timestretch key to [Alt], creating a conflict with Unity and XFCE (and possibly other desktop...

Re: Tracktion-on-Linux - jotting some notes down

A couple of updates to this thread: The Carla issue with the disappearing top border discussed above was resolved here -- https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=18439 -- with some assistance from Tracktion support and falkTX. Essentially it requires having two versions of Carla in the v...

Re: Is Ardour's midi really this buggy? (no it isn't)

Correction: Tracktion Waveform does have a "timestretch on clip resize" feature. You hold down the "option" or "windows" key while dragging the clip handle.

Re: Is Ardour's midi really this buggy? (no it isn't)

Thanks for this summation. I brought up the "skipped first note on loop" bug a while back and they made an effort to fix it but it still seems to happen. Tracktion Waveform has that "clip rendering" feature you mentioned and it really speeds up production/composition -- it will b...

Tiny notes, stuck notes, dropped notes, no velocity lane, not having a dedicated popout MIDI editor...
Ardour's MIDI handling is frustrating. Here's hoping it's improved in version 6.

Re: Carla Plugins - Top boarder vanishes (WAVEFORM 9)

Having two Carla folders in usr/lib/vst -- one called carlaQt4.vst and one called carla.vst -- seems to work OK.

Re: Carla Plugins - Top boarder vanishes (WAVEFORM 9)

I downloaded the Qt4 version and installed the carla.vst folder into usr/lib/vst That seems to have taken care of the problem. The top border remains intact and can be opened, closed and pinned without any problem. I was able to load a couple of .lv2 synths into Carla and everything worked. It only ...

Re: Carla Plugins - Top boarder vanishes (WAVEFORM 9)

Is this going to cause conflicts/confusion with the updated versions I receive through the repositories? Sorry, I'm not an experienced Linux user and could probably use some pointers on uninstalling/deactivating the repositories version and installing the "pre-compiled binaries for Linux" ...

Re: Carla Plugins - Top boarder vanishes (WAVEFORM 9)

lilith, did you ever get this bug fixed? Tracktion support isn't seeing this bug, in response to my query. They used Ubuntu 16.04 and Carla downloaded from http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Applications:Carla and they say everything works as it should. The only difference with my setup is I have Ubuntu...

In this thread -- https://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=420917&p=7061911#p7061911 -- lilith93 noted a bug with the Carla plugin window on Waveform 9. I won't repeat that discussion here, except to note that I'm happy to see Carla is working in Waveform now. As discussed in my n...

Re: Carla Plugins - Top boarder vanishes (WAVEFORM 9)

I commented on this issue, in response to lilith93, in the Tracktion-on-Linux KVR forum -- I have the same problem on Ubuntu Studio 16.04. As I noted on KVR, in Waveform 9 plugin windows are pushpinned to stay open by default. (This was an "improvement" to plugin GUI handling I wish they h...

Re: Tracktion-on-Linux - jotting some notes down

A quick update to note that Waveform version 9 has been released and continues to work very well for the basic functions I need it for (recording, looping MIDI, mixing, sending MIDI out to an external modular synth rack, and recording the audio) on my PC running Ubuntu Studio 16.04. I haven't tested...

Re: Carla not saving settings

Thanks -- correction to the above post -- it should read:
"Comparing the Dec-saved and Apr-saved .carpx files, there's definitely more info about the files and midi specifications in the Dec version"
