Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.


- Multi-track audio and MIDI sequencing and recording.
- Developed on pure Qt C++ application and UI framework.
- Uses JACK for audio and ALSA sequencer for MIDI
as multimedia infrastructures.
- Traditional multi-track tape recorder control paradigm.
- Audio file formats support: OGG (via libvorbis),
MP3 (via libmad, playback only), WAV, FLAC, AIFF
and many, many more (via libsndfile).
- Standard MIDI files support (format 0 and 1).
- Non-destructive, non-linear editing.
- Unlimited number of tracks per session/project.
- Unlimited number of overlapping clips per track.
- XML encoded session/project description files (SDI).
- Point-and-click, multi-select, drag-and-drop interaction
(drag, move, drop, cut, copy, paste, paste-repeat, delete, split, merge).
- Unlimited undo/redo.
- Built-in mixer and monitor controls.
- Built-in connection patchbay control and persistence
(a-la QjackCtl).
- LADSPA, DSSI, native VST and LV2 plug-ins support.
- Unlimited number of plug-ins per track or bus.
- Plug-in presets, programs and chunk/configurations support.
- Unlimited audio effect send/return inserts per track or bus.
- Loop-recording/takes.
- Audio/MIDI clip fade-in/out (linear, quadratic, cubic).
- Audio/MIDI clip gain/volume, normalize, export.
- Audio/MIDI track and plugin parameter automation (dynamic curves,
sample&hold, linear and spline modes).
- Audio clip time-stretching (WSOLA-like or via librubberband),
pitch-shifting (via librubberband [9]) and seamless sample-rate
conversion (via libsamplerate).
- Audio/MIDI track export (mix-down, merge).
- Audio/MIDI metronome bar/beat clicks.
- Unlimited tempo/time-signature map.
- Unlimited location/bar markers.
- MIDI clip editor (matrix/piano roll).
- MIDI instrument definitions (a-la Cakewalk(tm) (*.ins));
SoundFont (*.sf2) and MIDI Names XML (*.midnam) files also supported..
- MIDI controller mapping/learn/assignment (mixer and plug-in parameters).
- MIDI system exclusive (SysEx) setups.
- JACK transport sync master/slave.
- JACK session support.
- NSM (Non Session Management) support.
- MMC control surface enabled.
- MIDI Song Position cueing support.
- Configurable keyboard shortcuts.


0.7.1 2015-10-09 Meson Dope Beta

- Fixed an ages old MIDI track/channel instrument mapping (bank, program) issue that prevented normal all-shut-up messages from being sent to MIDI output buses/ports on playback stop.
- Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
- Fixed port on MIDI 14-bit controllers input caching.
- Fixed false value readings on the MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) tool-tips, when dragging a note velocity or controller value outside the acceptable nominal range (eg. 0-127).
- Added LV2_BUF_SIZE__nominalBlockLength option support (patch by falktx aka. Filipe Coelho, thanks).
- Fixed wrong initial tempo/time-signature display when session is loaded from command line.
- LV2 plug-in UI GTK2 and X11 in Qt5 host native support added.
- Transport/Auto Backward feature now honoring (auto return) to same current location precedence as Transport/Backward.
- Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11 (cf. configure --enable-xunique).
- MIDI Tools/Transpose, Resize duration display format (frames, time or BBT) have been fixed.
- Build fix for Qt5.5 (patch by KaOS, thanks).
- MIDI Tools/Quantize et al. are tentatively being corrected to take event times as relative to THE beginning of session, instead of MIDI clip start location.

0.7.0 2015-07-24 Muon Base Beta

- Complete rewrite of Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
- Revised MIDI Controlllers catch-up algorithm.
- Mixer multi-row layout gets a little bit of a fairness fix.
- Non-continuous MIDI Controllers now have their Hook and Latch options disabled as those are found not applicable,
- As an alternative to PC-keyboard shortcuts, MIDI controllers are now also assignable and configurable for any of the main menu command actions, all from the same old configuration dialog (Help/Shortcuts...).
- Fixed missing Track and Clip sub-menus from Edit/context-menu that were found AWOL ever since after the Lazy Tachyon beta release (> 0.6.6).
- An off-by-one bar position (as in BBT, bar, beat and ticks) has been purportedly fixed as long as LV2 Time/Position atom event transfer goes.
- French (fr) translation line to desktop file added (patch by Olivier Humbert, thanks).
- A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore sub-routine is now in effect.
- Improved MIDI clip editor resilience across tempo and time-signature changes.
- Keyboard shortcuts configuration (Help/Shortcuts...) now lists complete menu/action path where available.
- Fixed in-flight VST plugin editor (GUI) resizing.
- Added support to LV2UI_portMap extension, found really handy for the cases where you have multiple plugins with different port configurations and a single common UI to drive them all (pull request by Hanspeter Portner aka. ventosus, thanks).

Maybe we're confusing disparate concepts; probably it needs some clarification.

In qtractor, exporting is the process to produce a mix-down of one or several tracks resulting into a brand new media file; it's like rendering audio _or_ MIDI into a new media file (either audio file _or_ SMF, not both).

OTOH, regarding the "project" concept, IIUC, is here known and called as "session", as the program's "working session". This working session is rightly stored as a XML encoded file (.qtr file ext/suffix) as being the complete description of the arrangement, including all audio/MIDI tracks, clips, buses and the whole setup made while operating the application program. Have this noted, that a session file does NOT ever store or include any kind of media contents, rather just the file path references where it might get found in the local file system.


Cheers && Happy New Year

Hey man you did a really good job with Qtractor !
It was time that a cool audio sequencing application was developed !
To be honest I haven't tried it yet, but I'm following with pleasure your constant improvements and efforts. I am a hard user of Cubase SX and I would really love to definitely switch to Linux also for that purpose, and achieve 0 latency recording and mastering.
The key thing for these applications is a serious VST instruments support. Once you get it you're done ! Have you planned it at all for the future ?

Again, many congratulations !

Thanks, and please, do have a try. It will much appreciated.

Regarding VST support: it is in deed in the workings. On the workbench there's DSSI and native VSTi plug-in support. That's right, with DSSI-VST you will reach windows VSTs through wine, and with native VSTs you should have an open road to native linux VSTs (yes, there are some few out there;)

it's coming, but I can't really tell when it will be ready ;)

Thanks. Awe! Those GB colors are already mysteriously similar to Qtractor's. I wonder why should one make it even more of the same with icons and stuff :) from where I stand, ppl would start to think it's a GB clone, when it never was meant like that. But I see your point.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
