Great work so far :D

Some suggestions for more packages:

Dino (MIDI Sequencer) http://dino.nongnu.org/
SoftWerk (MIDI Pattern Sequencer) http://sourceforge.net/projects/softwerk/

Why do you build (against) Lash? Imo Ladish is far more useful atm and it can conflict with Lash. I did not dive in this issue to deeply though...

More packages:
Non-mixer

I try to use both. But most of the apss don't support ladish yet, so lash has to be used.
In fact, one of the goals of ladish is to provide a compatibility library for lash-only apps, so it could be useful in the future.

PS: I'm also developing a tool similar to gLadish, some sort of "Audio Instruments/Effects manager".


The name gladish is already in use by the ladish project.

Are lv2rack and non-mixer not such audio instruments/ effect managers already?
AFAIk Lv2rack is 'searching' for another (new) maintainer. Ask Nedko about it.

That's one of the main reasons I want to do my own app (and also to learn more about programing).
Not sure if it will be useful or not, but at least I keep learning new stuff

Then I would suggest to make an QT version of those applications and not discover the wheel again, cause that's not pushing the quality of linux audio most of the times imho. Also as a programmer of Linux audio software, you should take the (LAU and LAD) community in account and you can learn a lot from them and they from you maybe.

edit: Your ppa doesn't contain normal ardour? Would be nice if it is possible to install both ardour2 and ardourvst.

You can learn from interaction, don't wait for it ;)

BTW, there is an bug in your package improvisor, I think it's name is impro-visor not improvisor. Which is important cause improvisor is an fork actually of impro-visor...

nice nice!
I think i miss the latest hydrogen
latest a2jmidi
latest rosegarden QT4

edit: there are bugs in your ladish packages, wrong upstream author!
Also laditools rc1 is quite obsolete...

Are you sure ladish is an dependency for Bristol? I would say a 'suggests' .

Can you tell me what impro-visor does? Where are the files installed and how can I start it?

How do you make sure that packages will be updated when an official ubuntu package is the same version?

For that you need to use ~ppa , but you use +ppa a lot. ~ppa is making a version number less, +ppa is making the version of an package higher AFAIK.

I only care about making it build and run fine, the rest (who packaged it, license, and other small stuff) I don't really care.

Hey,
Do you have qtractor build with VST support, like jost has VST support? It seems it's also needed for native VST support.

I'm currently working on that.

nice

If you check the ppa now, you'll see a lot of "lib32..." packages.

Since all Linux VSTs out there are 32bit, we'll need a 32bit host to run the VSTs;
I'm currently packaging "kde4-libs-32bit" for 64bit, so that the Oxygen and QtCurve style can be used while running a 32bit QTractor in 64bit PCs (otherwise it would use plastique style, which I don't like much).

Once the kde4 libs are build, I'll upload QTractor with VST support (32bit only, but functional in 64bit too)


Yeah I was wondering about those lib32 packages. Are they replacing other packages on Ubuntu? Are they conflicting with packages?

git://repo.or.cz/libflashsupport-jack.git

I tried some vst plugins, but I doubt if they add something extra to the dssi/ladspa/lv2 plugins...
