Good Day

The Leopard OS X version of qsynth-0.3.4 has just been added to Qsynth's download list, accessible from the Project page.
This application requires 
JackOSX   http://www.jackosx.com/  and for live use,
MIDI Patchbay  http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/audio/midipatchbay.html 
at runtime.

 Qsynth is a fluidsynth GUI front-end application written in C++ around
the Qt4 toolkit using Qt Designer. Eventually it may evolve into a
softsynth management application allowing the user to control and manage
a variety of command line softsynth but for the moment it wraps the
excellent FluidSynth. FluidSynth is a command line software synthesiser
based on the Soundfont specification.


Project page:



 Qsynth is free, open-source software, distributed under the terms of
the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

 - Command line option parsing has been slightly refactored to allow
custom override through extraordinary fluidsynth option settings (eg. -o
name=value; fixes bug #2781579).
 - Main form layout has been given a little bit more slack space, just
to accommodate some longer text label translations (eg. German).
 - Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
 - Saved channel presets are now effectively loaded on engine startup.
 - Russian translation added (thanks to Alexandre Prokoudine).
 - Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
 - Qt Software logo update.
 - Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
 - Slight optimizations to the output peak meters refresh rate.
 - MIDI and audio device names are now user selectable options through
respective drop-down lists on each engine setup dialog.
 - New knob style: Skulpture.

Further details can be found in the README document packaged with the qsynth application.

Cheers && Enjoy!
