New in v1.1

  • added: missing headerfile in dssihost.cpp, required for building on Ubuntu Maverick (rj)
  • Fixed: Mixers not restoring their size properly upon song load. (T356)

    - Rearranged MusE::loadProjectFile1() slightly so mixer resizing done at end. Tested OK.

  • Changed: Disabled some optimized code always enabled in Dsp::cpy(), for now, in case of 64-bit issues. (T356)
  • Created rc2 release for 1.1 (rj)
  • Fixed: Delete track(s) not disconnecting track routes, causing routes to hang around and store in song file. (T356)

    - Fixed major regressions (my fault) in Song::insertTrack2() and ::removeTrack2().

  • Fixed: Dummy audio device: Crashes when Jack midi device created in device manager, or loaded from song. (T356)

    - This allows to create Jack midi devices even when dummy audio driver is used.

    - Tested OK loading complex Jack midi based songs with dummy audio driver.

  • Fixed: AlsaTimer cannot start, with dummy audio device. (T356)

    - Reverted: Back to default SND_TIMER_GLOBAL_SYSTEM in AlsaTimer, for now until a better fix.

    - Also replaced pop-up warning in dummy loop with terminal output instead.

  • Changed: MidiDevice <-> Track routes replaced with MidiPort <-> Track routes. (T356)

    - This allows to change a port's device (even to !) while keeping all the track channel routes.

  • Changed: Single midi <-> track route with channel mask, instead of one route-per-channel. (T356)

    - Potentially saving very many routes from memory and in song file.

i´m need a good multitrack,

i´m need a good multitrack, this is exactly

thanks a lot

whoops
I didn't know somebody was so kind helping me with the right installation procedure of the muse. I didn'y see this message before. I'll try the hints out and hope it becomes my Muse. Thanks a lot friendly unknown

for the best stingsbuilder of Belgium

Don't know the prog but i found this in the tar.bz2
- download source from http://lmuse.sourceforge.net/
- uncompress source:
bunzip2 muse-x.x.x.tar.bz2
- untar source:
tar xvof muse-x.x.x.tar </code>
or if you have a recent tar, you can combine both steps:
tar xvofj muse-x.x.x.tar.bz2

- enter dirctory muse-x.x.x:
MAKE SURE YOU SET YOUR 'QTDIR' ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE
run configure
run make all

- as root run:
make install
to install MusE
Hope this will help

Ps; didn't know you had other intrest exept from building stringinstruments ;-)

Re: for the best stingsbuilder of Belgium

This is crap on fedora! Does anyone know a good midi audio recorder for Fedora?

muse download

I hope I can start with my recent suse version now in the field in which I'm busy, music. A valuable mid and audio sequenser was the reason to try out linux.Are there pages where I can read how to install the program the right way, something for beginners. I even don't know exactly how to unpack such a tar.gz file or whatever it was. Thanks a 1000 times anyway. I will work with it quiet extensively and report you eventual bugs.
Sincere Greetings
