One thing real quick: I did make the decision that we are moving to Qt...

However, if GTK gets a majority vote from this poll, we might reconsider it. Also:

* If Qt wins, we will support Qt 5 and 6
* If GTK wins, we will support GTK 4 and will likely use gtkmm (because it's C++)

Poll: Qt or GTK for Saucedacity/Tenacity?

Supported platforms (planned): Windows (x86, x86_64), macOS (hopefully; Intel and ARM), Linux and others (x86_64).,

Pinned post

So I'm thinking about using Boost in Saucedacity to perform a variety of tasks (Boost.ASIO for IPC and Boost.DLL for library and maybe plugin loading). This is more on the code base refactoring part for our Qt rewrite.

So what do you guys think? Good idea? Any alternatives? Any other suggestions?

Saucedacity officially just gained context menus :)

On the other hand I broke AppImages yet I was trying to fix theming :(

Now time to experiment with zoom gestures in Saucedacity...

Show thread

I just realized I missed a shortcut while changing the zoom in and zoom out shortcuts: the Zoom normal shortcut.

Previously, this was Ctrl+2. Now, this is Ctrl+0, as is universal across other applications.

Hopefully that adds some consistency with the other two that were just changed :)

"Now time to see about Ctrl+scroll wheel. IIRC Audacity already has that..."

Well...we already have that.

But I'm still going to test out gesture support in wxWidgets. Sounds like it'll be interesting.

The global politics are unfortunately affecting open-source audio. Not in a good way.

The developer of LSP plug-ins may soon be forced to serve in the Russian army. He's previously expressed his strong stance regarding the war and is definitely not on board.

The Linux Studio Plug-ins (LSP) suite is one of the most advanced and high quality. A real beacon in the libre audio.

no one:

I am honestly not even sure why we never came up with this idea, I think it was mentioned in passing and everyone just forgot about it:

Great job, @gperson!

Tbh I never thought I'd become the lead developer of an Audacity fork. I remember having troubles with very distorted audio coming from my other laptop's mic in Audacity (I made a some videos about this on my YouTube channel). The problem: raised mic volume XD (I can be susceptible to not seeing very simple problems)

now here I am, by decision, figuring out how we can properly implement JACK support. I think I know where to start: set our JACK client name so we are not called "PortAudio" XD

As of the latest nightly builds, a couple of changes:

* You can now build against vanilla PortAudio, although PortMixer will not work

* The keyboard shortcuts for zooming in and zooming out are now Ctrl+= and Ctrl+-, respectively.

* The right channel of a stero track (which is at the bottom) has it's clip handle hidden now. Additionally, there is no more empty space between the left and right channels in a stereo track. (This copies Audacity 3.1)

I think I got Saucedacity macOS builds finally working without any hacks. I need some testers to try out the latest nightly, or I might be able to confirm tomorrow if I can use a Mac during that time (no guarantees, but we'll see).

The reason why Saucedacity wasn't working on macOS before was because we didn't update our wrapper XD

Heres's the planned Saucedacity/Tenacity 1.3 release agenda:

This isn't a final agenda, so I'd like to hear what you guys have to say!

I should mention the following:

* We are on an NVIDIA GPU, Pop!_OS 22.04 under Xorg

* I was working on a modified Saucedacity when I undocked an edit toolbar. This code hasn't been pushed anywhere and everything is fine now.

Everything is fine now I repeat everything is fine now.

I undocked a toolbar in Saucedacity and...this happened.
