I like seq24, too -- the concept itself is wonderful...such a lightweight, simple yet powerful tool. I think it works very well with jack and the concept of having a completely modular audio system with jack as the hub Is there a version later than 0.8.7? If I can get the source, it is easy to compile and install with checkinstall. I have 0.8.7 compiled with the bug fix I found here: Are there any other fixes floating around? I haven't seen them...

I just want to note that the version of seq24 in Etch is not the most recent, the version in debian testing has at least one rather nice feature (painting of notes). I believe there are some good patches floating about for seq24 which haven't been applied to Debian's package either. For instance there is an important patch which fixes slowdown of the sequencer when it gets busy, can't remember the details right now but I think it allows for realtime priority of the sequencing thread or such like. seq24 doesn't look impressive but it behaves impressively and has some killer features that are either not present in other more mainstream free sequencers or are invisible to me. You can make a loop for any midi controller you like and "draw" the parameter values. So for example I can have a bass loop with a few notes and another loop controlling filter parameters to get the kind of progression in timbre which is essential in the kind of music I want to make - electronic dance/ambient music, and I can turn the filter loop on and off at a keystroke. I haven't been able to do this in Rosegarden and it makes Rosegarden useless for me. Also seq24 is small, light, fast, simple and clean. I think it could do with some more shortcuts for doing stuff - I'd like to be able to select notes and adjust their pitch with the keyboard rather than having to drag them, for example. But I would love the latest seq24 plus patches to be a standard part of Studio 64. It would also be nice to have an icon for it on the Gnome menu, this doesn't happen when I install it from debian testing. I have to [alt-f2] seq24 [enter]. Until Rosegarden loses some of it's fat and gets that midi controller feature I will be using seq24, even for non-live sequencing. Muse does not amuse me, I can't even create a track without reading a manual. I better shut up before i write a novel. -- Michael Pacey

Sounds good...

Phasex is definitely a candidate for a future release. Seq24 is already in Debian if you need the package. Lives is a bit more tricky, as most video editors are, because of patent-encumbered dependencies. We are trying to get a redistributable version of Lives into Debian though.
