[ANN] Qtractor 0.9.12 - The QStuff* Winter'19 Release batch #3

Postby rncbc » Sat Dec 28, 2019 12:13 pm

Greetings, just one last time!

    Qtractor 0.9.12 (winter'19) is released!
The change-log is rather short but nevertheless:
- Basic key-signature has been added to tempo, time-signature and location markers map.
- MIDI Clip editor (aka. piano-roll) horizontal and vertical splitter sizes, widths and heights resp. are now preserved as user preferences and also to session state.
- Second attempt to fix the yet non-official though CMake build configuration.

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.

actually it depends to what soundcard/device interface is JACK configured; the Log doesn't show any clue on that matter, sorry.

please review your JACK settings, (qjackctl > Setup ? ; cadence > Configure? ..) and check whether you're actually connecting to laptop speakers and not to some hdmi device, bluetooth headset or else that might appear as the first (hw:0) device in ALSA terms ... these are just hunches, as all seems to be working in qtractor as it should.

It's a trap. In a few years CMake will go out of support and CMakeNextGen will be incompatible in any aspect just because it's cool.
