Radium 6.9.86 released

Post by kjetil » 19 Jul 2021 14:44

Most work this time has gone into converting note pitches to the new data structure. Note pitches are for changing the pitch of a playing note, used for instance to create portamentos and glissandos. Now you hear changes immediately when editing pitches while playing. The change is also necessary for future work such as converting the editor from using OpenGL to using Vulkan.

However, the most notable change this time is various improvements to mouse handling. Most GUI elements are now lightened up when the mouse is above them. The release also contains lots of important bug fixes for the sequencer and the editor. See full changelog below.

Changes 6.9.82 -> 6.9.86:
  • Audio: Try not to open any audio input device by
    default. Sometimes this screws up the output
    sound.
  • Audio: Try to use a default buffer size of 1024
    when initializing the audio device. Earlier the
    audio device was sometimes initialized with an
    incompatible block size.
  • Sequencer: Fix inserting several audio files at
    once when selecting "Insert audio file(s)" from
    the popup menu. For a few releases now, inserting
    several audio files inserted the new audio files
    into the wrong sequencer tracks.
  • Sequencer: Also set seqtrack-under-mouse when
    changing current seqtrack.
  • Sequencer: Fix moving several seqblocks at once
    when there are hidden seqtracks.
  • Sequencer: Light up seqtrack names, both in
    seqtrack headers and in the "Tracks" tab, when
    mouse is above.
  • Sequencer: Light up the editable path name field in
    the "Files" tab when mouse is above.
  • Sequencer: Light up seqtrack currently under mouse.
  • Sequencer: Fix keybindings not always working on
    current seqtrack pointed to by the mouse.
  • Sequencer: Paint orange border around current
    seqblock in the sequencer navigators.
  • Sequencer: Fix possible weird behavior when moving
    more than one seqblock and one or more of those
    seqblocks were deleted because they were moved to
    a seqtrack of the wrong type.
  • GUI: Make all sliders in the editor/mixer/sequencer
    to light up when mouse is above the slider.
  • Mixer: Make the volume text and peak text light up
    when mouse is above.
  • Editor: Convert various node assertions to fire in
    debug builds only.
  • Editor: Fix moving cursor left when the cursor is
    positioned on the leftmost centtext subtrack and
    the swing subtrack is visible.
  • Editor: Fix transposing selected notes in the
    pianoroll when using left meta + u/d.
  • Editor: Improve logic for whether to show the
    centtext subtrack or not.
  • Editor: Convert pitches to TimeData.
    • The most notable change is that any editing is
      heard immediately if playing block or song at
      the same time.
    • Using less CPU cache. CPU usage might be notably
      lower after notes themselves have been converted
      to the new data structure.
    • Necessary for future work such as replacing
      OpenGL with Vulkan.
  • Editor: Fix transpose velocity.
  • Build: Fix compiling for LLVM12 (Teteros)
  • Editor: Let the window that shows the
    no-range-or-selection error show buttons to open
    the manual instead of explaining directly how to
    edit range and selection.
  • Editor: Make sure editor graphics is updated when
    pressing left alt + return.
  • API: setCurrSeqtrackUnderMouse
