PostPosted: Wed 16 Oct 2019, 16:44    Post subject:  Qtractor on Bionic  

Followed this post/thread for making Qtractor functional n Bionic:

Does anyone have pup for Lin-VST?
found something on github
no clue how to get it operational with pc .dll VST
...highly doubt it's the version referenced in this Artful thread


This comprises Qtractor audio midi sequencer recorder with integrated lin vst converter.
Cadence GUI controller for the Jack audio connection kit. This is a replacement for the usual qjackctl GUI.
A few commonly used effects like reverb, delay, phaser, compressor, flanger, eq and master limiter.
These are old but good Kajerhaus bread and butter fx.

I've done two versions of Cadence by Falk TX, one is a mini version that just contains the useful control panel for Jack2. 20mb
Cadence full version contains extra tools for rendering and patching and using x y mouse i.e complex setups. 54mb

Qtractor is a good application, it's like Audacity on steroids.

Install either Cadence-mini or Cadence full, depending on requirements (not both).

Install Jack2 Artful.

Install Qtractor.

1.Click on Jack Control in Multimedia menu and setup your sound card (alsa panel in Cadence).

2.Start Qtractor, there is a Default qtz file which you can open in root/Qtractor.
That has some audio and midi tracks ready to go. Or you can just start fresh and add track/s from the menu.

3.Start Qtractor again and click on track properties/ plugins/add.
It might take a short while to initially scan for fx plugins in root/vst.

Once your setup is established with your particular machine it should be rock solid.

A note about Lin-VST in the multimedia menu.
Basically you throw VST intrument.fx dlls that you like into root/vst.
Then start LIN VST, find the renderer linvst.so in usr/bin, find the dll (root/vst) folder, then convert.
This will convert and add *.so files so that the plugins will load in a linuxish compatible format.
Some will work very well, but some plugins may be just too complex to handle. Junk them for less pain.
There are of course LADSPA, LV2 and other plugin formats available from erm..where. Invada Calf springs to mind.

If you are new to Qtractor, Cadence, Jack and Lin VST it might be an idea to read up on this software a bit,
but it is fairly intuitive.

no menu item for my found lin-VST .deb
Does anyone have a pet for this?
Any clues are appreciated.
