Subject description: A small Suite to run easily QJackCtl, Qtractor, QSynth, Hydrogen, JACK Mixer and ZynAddSubFx
 

Hi.

This is QTR Suite, a small Suite to run easily QJackCtl, Qtractor, QSynth, Hydrogen, JACK Mixer and ZynAddSubFx. QTR Suite was developed and tested in/for Studio2Go and BionicDog. Though, it should work in other Puppies as well. The attached archive will extract a directory containing QTR Suite RoxApp. Just store this RoxApp to a ext partition or to /usr/local/apps (recommended for BionicDog). There is a .desktop file in a sub-directory (menu) of the RoxApp, to be placed at /usr/share/applications (only if the RoxApp is stored at /usr/local/apps), so QTR Suite can be executed from the Menu.

After appr. seven months of mainly composing music using GNU/Linux software, I found two combinations of setups being very useful. Meanwhile there have been lots of sequencer programs and software synthesizers tested, as there was:

- ardour
- muse
- qtractor
- rosegarden

- aeolus
- ams
- amSynth
- din
- drumkv1
- hexter
- Mx44
- nekobee
- Petri-Foo
- phasex
- fluid synth
- QSynth (GUI for fluid synth)
- RTSynth
- samplv1
- Sineshaper
- specimen
- sooperlooper
- synthv1
- yoshimi
- zynaddsubfx

Lots of nice programs, though I could not get all to work combined with ALSA MIDI and JACK Audio. Those programs being most useful in a 16 channel multi-track setup have been:

- qtractor

- QSynth (with fluid synth)
- zynaddsubfx

So, I started to do a re-write of my 'Audio Recording Suite' to easily start some programs for the use to create some music. Just select a Qtractor Song Archive (.qtz) from the list and click 'Load and Work'.

It will start QjackCtl, QSynth (if chosen) Qtractor and loads e.g. Default.qtz into Qtractor. If ZynAddSubFx was chosen, it will load Default.xmz into ZynAddSubFx.

To create a new project, just select a Qtractor Song Archive (.qtz) from the list, enter a name for the new project in 'Project' frame and click 'New'. It will create a new project using the selected Qtractor Song Archive (.qtz) as its template.

To mix down a project, just click on 'Project Mixdown'. It will run JACK Mixer and connects the programs to JACK Mixer. Start Audacity and choose the JACK Audio Connection Kit as audio device and JACK Mixer to record from.

Clicking 'Mixdown finished' (exit JACK Mixer first) will re-connect the programs to system outputs.

The tool-tips may explain some more details...
