Shuriken Beat Slicer 0.5

Post by RockHopper »

Hi everyone! I'm delighted to announce the brand new release of Shuriken. New features since the last release include:
  • new user interface
  • amplitude envelope generator with controls for attack, release, and one-shot
  • envelopes can be exported with Akai .pgm, Hydrogen Drumkit, and SFZ files
  • user can now set the number of JACK outputs and route any audio slice to any output
  • NSM support
  • copy and paste audio slices
  • zero-crossing detection
  • slice points snap to samples when zoomed in at sample detail level
  • several keyboard shortcuts added (see help doc)
  • recent projects menu
Several bugs have also been fixed.

A big thank you to everyone who has been involved in testing, making suggestions, and reporting bugs.


Ubuntu packages are available for Precise, Trusty, and Vivid, and Debian packages are available for Squeeze, Wheezy, and Jessie.

is there any way to apply a group mute to shuriken? like when you trigger a slice it automatically mutes any other slice that may be playing? that'd be super helpful re: fingerdrumming

that's something that would be nice in akai pgm export.

normaly the first thing i do when loading a set of samples from shuriken into the mpc is set poly mode to mono and mute group to 1.

Not at the moment - I'll definately put that on the todo list.

Hi,
Wanted to try Shuriken but can't install it on 15.10 kubuntu with kxstudio repos.
The librubberband2 is needed .Looked via Synaptics and I have
"librubberband2v5" package installed but the version is "1.8.1-6ubuntu2".
Any help?
Also the ppa (when writing this post) had an error 404 Not Found . Is it because it looks for 15.10 ?

Hi korakios,

Shuriken is now pacakged for Ubuntu Wily: https://launchpad.net/~rock-hopper/+arc ... audiotools

Sorry for not replying sooner. I've been struggling with RSI and am trying to rest my wrists as much as possible.

Hi!

I see the updated Shuriken Wily packages, Debian Testing is also based on gcc5 now, do you recommend to use the Wily packages or do you plan on Debian gcc5-ready packages in the near future? I ask because as before I'd like to continue with Shuriken in AV Linux and the new AVL will be based on Debian Testing.

Wily is the version I use for the kxstudio gcc5 builds.
(Until it becomes EOL and I have to move to Y-series)
In this case no, as of this writing, because the Shuriken Wily packages want librubberband2v5 and Debian Testing doesn't yet have a 'v5' gcc5 variant of that package... Good news is that the Shuriken Debian Jessie packages install and run fine as of today but that can change in a heartbeat in the high-stakes world of Debian's testing branch.. :roll:

Great work rockhopper! The new version works and looks terrific!

I see the PKGBUILD for Archlinux has not been moved to AUR4. Do you need someone to take over the PKGBUILD maintenance-related tasks? I could easily do that.

That would be a great help if you could. I have a copy of an old PKGBUILD for Shuriken 0.4 if it's of any use: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yxnkqc5uvmvw0 ... ar.gz?dl=0

Thanks, I’m on it right away. I’ve retrieved the latest AUR3 PKGBUILD and modified it for the latest version, this is what I currently use to install Shuriken on my system. All I need to do is submit it to AUR.
