LibraZiK news - September 2021

No new blog post since March the 30th. The main reason for this is that I took a new job (not much to do with computers, free software, linux, or even computer aided music) and that leaves me less time. Those of you who follow the project closely knew that I was still working on things and updating some important parts of LibraZiK-3 when needed. Below is a summary of the things that have been happening on the project over the last 5 months.
Music made with LibraZiK-3:
A lot of music made lately with LibraZiK, and it fills me with joy that people are using it for real, to actually make music. It is likely that other pieces have been made with LibraZiK during these months, but that I have not been notified of them. If so, please feel free to point them out to me in the comments of this post or in any other way.
In the meantime, here is some music for your ears, yum!
- Dark Shadow by TriYop
- Sandwich de Tàrrega by sibfactory
- Broken roses, Cubaton and Spectre by r1 -
- Blurp and Blurp2 (remix), a kind of 90's funky groove made on LibraZiK-3 with Hydrogen, Supercollider, Guitarix, LMMS, Ardour, and an electric guitar
- an impro made on LibraZiK with Guitarix and a very nice cover of "La nuit je mens" by Alain Bashung by Sapiens
- Banjo-bass-dub by tongo, a handmade piece including a handmade instrument

- someone mentions LibraZiK-3 in Thomann's comments
- LibraZiK's IRC channel has changed to the libera.chat server due to a problem with the previous freenode network
- a few update in the French section
- backups of the website (dokuwiki, dotclear, flyspray), as well as Mastodon and Diaspora* accounts
- a new freewheeling demo video by fidz
For the next few weeks and months, the time I have available for the project will be used for the usual maintenance, updating packages requested by people using LibraZiK.
At the end of the post, it remains for me to warmly thank the people who helped to advance the project by testing the new features before I make them available to everyone. Many thanks to Nicolas "sub26nico", Erwan "r1", Mathieu "houston4444", and Arnaud "fidz". May the lasting summer season give you enough joy to produce beautiful music!
If your pocket is heavy, and you want to, don't forget to fund the LibraZiK project.
See you soon,
