Hi Filipe!

Your PPA is promising!

I have a wishlist with some packages I use and there are not in your PPA nor in karmic repos, afaik (I haven't checked lucid repos).

chordii
[Am]I some[C]times write [G]songs with chor[G]dii.

klick, gtklick and klick2ardour.py
Dominique has a PPA but gtklick is missing.
IMHO, gtklick is the best metronome for Linux. No, wait, klick is better :)

playitslowly
The way in between rubberband-cli and audacity for tempo and speed changes. So simple and useful.

tuneit
A wonderful CLI tuner

Last jack_capture (0.9.40 today) (http://old.notam02.no/arkiv/src/?M=D)
I don't know if it is my fault but jack_capture <= 0.9.39 didn't work with jack2 in my computer.

Rakarrack
THE guitar rack.

Thank you! Pablo

I think we need an debian package for openoctave midi, which doesn't conflict with Rosegarden if possible..

http://www.openoctave.org/downloads/oomidi

Would be nice

Sure, I'll do this right now!


Cool

I can build it from source on Debian after installing kdelibs4-dev, maybe that's useful info.

This guy maintains his packages also in git. Which makes it more easy to be used by other projects afaik. Debian and Ubuntu multimedia package teams also use git.

see also: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=817 for info about quality packaging.

edit: still QT3 AFAIK

Isn't it an idea for you to also use github?

I have kde3-style-qtcurve on the PPA, and I recommend using it with OOMidi (QtCurve is the best Qt3 theme I found so far).

Expect the packages to be ready soon.
The only problem now is that I can't get the source code, their git host is offline

Nice, hope it is online again soon.

OpenOctave MIDI is now package "oomidi" and there's also "oop-scripts".
Non-DAW, Non-Sequencer and Non-Mixer are also available now


Thanks. I'll see if I get them rebuilded on debian here.

What else can we ask for ;)
Impro-visor: https://www.cs.hmc.edu/~keller/jazz/improvisor/
LV2 plugins
jkmeter
???

Think of UbuntuStudio + Lots of new stuff + Full 64bit support.
KDE will be used as default DE


I like that.....more even because I use KDE, too.........how about a pre-audio-configuered Fluxbox too? it's great for audio-work

You can just install the Ubuntu minimal ISO, then fluxbox, then some of KXStudio metapackages (audio apps/plugins, video, etc).


in fact, i allready did it like this in Karmic and Hardy....best way to have a costumized distro

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...
