README for Sequencer64 0.96.8 (Native JACK, CLI, tempo, Linux/Windows, play-lists) Chris Ahlstrom 2015-09-10 to 2020-07-05 Sequencer64 is a reboot of seq24, extending it greatly over the last four years. The heart of seq24 remains intact. It is an old friend with a whole lot of added equipment. It has an extensive manual and Windows installers: https://github.com/ahlstromcj/sequencer64-doc.git https://github.com/ahlstromcj/sequencer64-packages.git Sequencer64 has build options for ALSA, PortMidi, JACK, Gtkmm 2.4, Qt 5, Windows, and a command-line/daemon. Native JACK support: Seq64rtmidi/seq64 Seq64 has native JACK MIDI/Transport, with virtual/manual ports and auto-connect like ALSA, based on RtMidi massively refactored. It falls back to ALSA support if JACK is not running. See README.jack for basic instructions on native JACK. GUI-less application: Seq64rtmidi/seq64cli The RtMidi/JACK version without a GUI. Controlled via MIDI control events (start/stop events must be set up), it relies on a good working configuration generated via the GUI or edited by hand. MIDI files are loaded via play-lists (see data/nanomap.rc and data/seq64cli.rc). Seq64cli supports a "daemonize" option and log-files. Windows support derived from PortMidi: Seq64qt5/qpseq64.exe Qpseq64 uses a Qt 5 user-interface based on Kepler34 and the Sequencer64 PortMidi engine. Windows built-in MIDI devices are detected, inaccessible devices are ignored, and playback (e.g. to the Windows wavetable synthesizer) work. It is built easily via Qt Creator or qmake, using MingW. The Qt 5 GUI still has a few features to be added, but will be the official GUI of Seq66 (in the near future). See README.windows for more information. See the INSTALL file for build-from-source instructions for Linux or Window, and using a conventional source tarball. Recent changes: - Version 0.96.8: - Reduced the size of the pattern editor to 800x480 to fit on small screens. - Many many tweaks and optimizations. - Fixed bug in event_list::link_new(). - Sped up the MIDI record code to try to avoid issues recording chords from a MIDI keyboard. - Fixed issue #206 MIDI Start/Stop/Continue; but still an issue with events not detected until the next event comes in. - Version 0.96.7: - Fixed issue #181 by adding more beats/bar menu values up to 20. Note that the fix to issue #77 allows numbers up to 128 to be typed in. - In Seq66, found an issue handling running status in the 2rock.mid file. Backported the fix here. - Feature request #188: in the "usr" file, hold the desired state of muting, MIDI thru, record, quantized record, and recording style, for new patterns when opened. An assist for live recording. Run with the --user-save option to save with the new feature. Currently, the criterion for "new pattern" is a name of "Untitled". - Along with #188, made it possible for MIDI control to bring up the pattern editor. - Added a work-around for crashing when opening menus with horizontal separators on certain themes (e.g. Breeze-Gtk and its dark version). See issues #126, #154, and #185. Currently, all separators are removed by default, until we can detect themes. A slight degradation in the quality of the user interface. Not bad, though. - Added signal handling (e.g. for nsm-proxy) from user falkTX. Used in the CLI, GTK, and Qt versions to trigger file save and application exit. - Added code to define the engine used and the exact "uname a-" of the operating system on which the build was done, for the --version option. - For earlier version information, see the NEWS and ChangeLog files. This package is oriented to developers and users who do not mind building from source, with a little help. It is organized and well documented. Initial work/thought/documentation started in July of 2015, when I was laid up after some old-man surgery :-(. # vim: sw=4 ts=4 wm=4 et ft=sh
A major reboot of Seq24, with new features. Current release 0.96.8 (2020-07-05), native JACK MIDI, Song recording, playlists, and a Windows/Qt version. For latest fixes, see midi_control branch.
