Tracktion Software announces Linux Support (Public Beta)

Tracktion Software has announced that a public beta for its Tracktion 4 music production software is now available for Linux.

Tracktion 4 in Linux
Tracktion for Linux features 64-bit performance, compatible with all native Linux VST and LADSPA (no GUI) plug-ins.

Continuing the momentum that began with a brand re-launch and release of Tracktion 4 last January, followed by a recent bundling agreement with Behringer, Tracktion Software Corporation (TSC) is pleased to announced yet another milestone for their popular music creation software.

Beginning immediately, Tracktion 4 is available for 64-bit Linux systems. This release—along with the current 64 and 32-bit versions available for Mac and Windows—solidifies Tracktion’s position within a very small family of music creation applications to broadly support all three of the major operating systems.

“Linux users, much like Tracktion users, have always been on the cutting edge of technology and willing to look beyond the status quo for alternative solutions,” explained Julian Storer, creator and chief developer of Tracktion software. “In that spirit, bringing Tracktion to Linux just makes sense. I’m extremely excited to open a whole new community to the joy of music creation in their preferred environment.”

With a powerful and elegant single-screen interface, Tracktion forgoes the complex, multi-screened designs that have been standard for conventional DAW’s since developers first digitized tape-based workflows over 20 years ago. Tracktion replaces this paradigm of the past with a modern, drag-and-drop interface that dramatically simplifies the recording, editing and mixing process. Truly unique, Tracktion has earned a loyal following of users who appreciate its power, simplicity and unique ability to unburden the creative process.

Tracktion 4 for Mac, Windows and Linux is available to purchase $59.99 USD. An upgrade from previous versions is $29.99 USD.

The Tracktion 4 Linux version is initially free to everyone during the current public beta phase at www.tracktion.com/linux (scroll to bottom of page). Tracktion 4 is also free with the purchase of select interfaces, mixers and control surfaces from Behringer and Mackie.

Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3.11

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has updated the Sequent modular multi-effects unit to version 1.3.11.

Sequent has seven individual effect blocks: a Beat Looper; two Filters, both switchable between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass modes and capable of self oscillation even without an audio input; an oversampled Distortion unit; a Gate with variable depth and slew; a Panner; and a Delay unit capable of sub millisecond delay times, great for creating everything for from dub, slapback, and bouncing ball style echoes, to metallic comb filters or flanger effects.

Changes in Sequent v1.3.11

  • (fix: Mac OS X) Cables between effect modules can now be removed using a single button mouse.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Fixed issue which could cause Sequent to be skipped by Kore or Maschine’s plug-in scan.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Space key-presses will now always be passed through to Logic, ensuring that Logic’s transport can be started and stopped.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Gatekeeper signed installers now install correctly on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • (improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of Sequent as a mono plug-in.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.
  • (improvement) Clearer UI fonts in various places.
  • (improvement: Linux) Presets and configuration files are now located to comply with the XDG Base Directory Specification. Older installations will still use any existing preset library location to maintain backwards compatibility.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

Loomer Sequent

Changes in Sequent v1.3.3

  • (feature) Keyboard entry of rotary parameter values. Rotary controls can now be typed directly into by clicking on the text value below the control.
  • (improvement:Mac OS X) Installer and all installed components are now signed in compliance with Mac OS X 10.8′s Gatekeeper system.
  • (improvement:Linux) When using the JACK audio system in standalone mode, the JACK Transport now syncs Sequent’s tempo, start/stop status, and playhead location.
  • (improvement) Step response on the filter, distortion, pan, and delay module parameters has been significantly reduced to allow for tighter control of sequenced automation.
  • (improvement) Changing sequencer patterns via MIDI keyboard can no longer cause audio glitches when using a realtime audio driver.
  • (fix) The Master sequencer will now correctly follow a host’s PPQ position, and restart in response to a host’s transport restarting.
  • (fix:RTAS) Fix for the right-channel muting when bypassing in Pro Tools when used on a mono to stereo track.
  • (improvement) Significantly improved UI response speed; reduced CPU usage when parameters are automated whilst the UI is open.
  • (improvement:Windows) Removed C++ runtime libraries redistributable requirement for RTAS plug-ins. The installer no longer installs the C++ runtime library redistributable components when installing the RTAS plug-ins.
  • (improvement) Routing and sequencing windows are now lighter and clearer.
  • (improvement) Factory presets now use a compressed pattern format, which are significantly smaller, and so improves preset loading and search times.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has updated Sequent, a multi effects plug-in for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Sequent is a step-sequenced multi-effect processor with a flexible modular effects routing system, an incredibly powerful beat looper, twenty-three parameter sequencers, and a wealth of randomization options. Sequent is the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio.

Changes in Sequent v1.3.0

  • Native 64-bit VST plug-in for Mac OS X (64-bit VST support requires Mac OS X 10.6 or greater; 64-bit Audio Unit requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater; all other formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or greater. )
  • Bitcrusher effect added to distortion module.
  • Massively improved speed and responsiveness of all UI controls.
  • Improved CPU usage when wiring effects in the modular view.
  • Improved CPU usage when tweaking parameters from a hardware controller.
  • Improved CPU usage when rapidly switching patterns.
  • Sequence syncing is now more reliable for hosts which provide only periodic PPQ positional information.
  • Rotary controls for Looper mode and Filter types are now replaced by combo controls.
  • For the Windows VST plug-in, when using a relative path for the presets folder, the path is now relative to the DLL, not the host.
  • Standalone versions now support multiple simultaneous hardware controllers.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for GUI freeze that could occur in certain Mac OS X VST hosts.
  • Preset searches are now multi-threaded. Preset browser can now immediately respond to user interaction, even whilst searching a massive preset library, or when browsing a folder containing a large number of presets.
  • Added soft notching for volume and crossfade controls, making unity volume and 50% crossfade mix easier to dial in.
  • Fixed extremely rare crash that could occur on a minority of Windows 32-bit systems when opening the UI.
  • Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
  • Standalone application tempo can now be set to within two decimal places of accuracy.

Grame releases Faust v0.9.10

Faust

Grame, Centre National de Creation Musicale, has announced the release of Faust (Functional Audio Stream) 0.9.10, a functional programming language specifically designed for real-time signal processing and synthesis.

This version introduces several new possibilities. It is the first official release to offer full parallelization of the C++ code to exploit multicore architectures, as well as automatic generation of mathematical documentation.

New in Faust v0.9.10

  • Several new options have been added to control how the C++ code is generated, in particular:
    • control of the floating point precision : single (default), double, quad
    • code re-organization in simple loops to facilitate automatic vectorization
    • automatic parallelization based on OpenMP
    • automatic parallelization based on a specific “Work-Stealing” algorithm
  • Using formal methods the Faust compiler can automatically produce a complete mathematical documentation of a Faust program.
  • Language Extensions
    • Sequential composition operator (A:B) has been restricted to expressions so that outputs(A) = inputs(B). This restriction has several advantages. It improves error detection, makes the code easier to understand and provides nicer and simpler formal semantic ( A:B is B o A)
    • User interface labels can now contain metadata. For example the label “volume[unit:dB][tooltip:control the output volume of the reverb]” contains two metadata, a unit definition and a tooltip message than can be exploited by an architecture file to fine tune the user interface.
    • User interface labels can contain absolute and relative pathnames to better control the hierarchical structure of the user interface. For example the label “../volume” points to place the widget one group higher in the hierarchy.
  • Several new audio architectures have been included, in particular Action Script, CoreAudio, CSOUND, Chuck, Pure, SND-RT, for a total of about 20 different plateforms now supported: Action Script, Alsa, ChucK, CoreAudio, CSOUND, Jack, LADSPA, Matlab, MaxMSP, Octave, OSS, PortAudio, Pure, PureData, Q, Sndfile, Snd-RT, SuperCollider, SynthFile, VST, VSTi (mono)
