ALSA 1.0.14a problems

Hi all,

Just a quick note to inform you that Freecycle won’t work with the latest alsa-1.0.14a. I’ll try to post a bug report at alsa bugtracker ASAP.

If you use Freecycle with Jack, everything shoud be ok.


EDIT: The problem is solved in the final 1.0.14 release

Maintenance branch

Hi all,

I have created the MAINTENANCE_0_6_ALPHA CVS branch. In this branch I’ll backport some important fixes and some feature requests.

  • I have commited the fix for gcc3.4 compilation (soundplayer.cpp, line 77)
  • I have solved the minor rendering glich in the “Export chunks” dialog, visible when libinstpatch was disabled
  • As discussed with Walco van Loon (Aksy project), I have modified the way audio chunks are named.

Instead of saving:


in the given directory ‘foobar’, we are now saving
in the current directory.

I’ll try to reenable SF2 export as I feel this is a valuable but rarely packaged feature. I’ll try to include it in the next, “0.6.1alpha” maintenance release.

All the requests are welcome for the 0.6 series, major issues will be fixed but feature requests will go to the trunk.


PS: From now on, you can checkout MAINTENANCE_0_6_ALPHA branch, I’ll try to release 0.6.1alpha ASAP.

Freecycle officially in Debian!

It happened, finally.

Thanks to the efforts of Guerkan Senguen Freecycle is in Debian (unstable branch). You can get it at

Now it’s up to me to finish the 0.7 incantation and get finally Freecycle out of the alpha stage. With Qt4 it looks quite promissing as the new Canvas code is much much better now. You can follow the work in progres in the CVS (still not in usable state, but compiles, executes and shows the new rendering code).
