If you intend to build Rosegarden from source, you will need to install a number of libraries. See the Contributing wiki page for a list.

Fixed a bug where events beyond the end marker of the first segment in a join would appear in the joined segment. After joining segments, the newly created segment is now selected.
Default pitch tracker settings are no longer stupid. Flats were not cancelled on a C-maj key change. Rulers in notation were desynchronized when a segment was deleted while some zoom factor was in use. Rosegarden is a professional audio and MIDI sequencer, score editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing environment. Rosegarden can be used to record and arrange audio and MIDI compositions with effects and instrument plugins.
Some of Rosegarden's features are:. Piano-roll, score, event list and track overview editors. John Waters by Constant Smiles. The Boston lo-fi psych-pop artist goes full dark synth on this immersive and catchy new release. Atmospheric and morbid, oh-so-groovy and danceable - I love it! Explore music. The future is bright. Decent recording, her vocals do outshine the music though. Favorite track: Blitzkrieg In Holland. For audio segments, this time-stretches the audio, altering its played speed without altering its pitch as would happen if the audio was simply played back faster or slower.
Time-stretching usually adds some audible artifacts as well, so the quality of your results may vary. Rosegarden does not alter the original audio file when time-stretching an audio segment, and if you rescale the same segment repeatedly it will always work from the original file instead of accumulating timestretching artifacts with each rescale.
You can rescale both mono and stereo audio. You can use the split tool to split a single segment into two separate segments. To split your segment, select the split tool and click on the segment you wish to split. By default segments are split on the closest barline to the cursor, but this can be prevented by holding down Shift while splitting the segment. This function works slightly differently depending on whether the selected segments contain audio or MIDI data.
For MIDI segments, it simply splits the segment everywhere that a full bar of silence occurs. If the music in the segment consists of two separate parts e. If this is selected, Rosegarden will attempt to track the two parts as they move up and down, usually doing a slightly better job of separating out notes that were intended to lie in the two separate parts.
If you have recorded events from more than one MIDI channel or device into the a single segment, you can use this function to split them into separate segments afterwards. Select the channel or device whose events you want to split out, and the segment will be split into two segments, one containing events from the selected channel or device and the other containing the remaining events.
The two segments are both created on the same track, with one overlapping the other. See also Recording and Track recording filters for more details on how to select the source MIDI channel or device for a recording. The Rosegarden track editor , matrix editor and notation editor each contain a tempo ruler, which can be optionally displayed at the top of the editing area.
The tempo ruler shows changes to tempo and time signature throughout the composition, and can be used for editing tempo. To increase or decrease the tempo within the range of a single tempo change, click and drag the horizontal line or sloped line, for ramped tempos representing that tempo upwards or downwards.
To insert a new tempo change, right-click on the ruler for a menu and select Insert Tempo Change. This will insert a new tempo change with the same tempo as the prior one, which you can then drag to increase or decrease.
You can also click and drag the starting point of a tempo change left or right to move that tempo change to a different time, and you can click and drag the ending point of a tempo change up or down to make the tempo ramp gradually towards an ending tempo value. Double-click on the tempo ruler to open the tempo and time signature editor. Time signature editor. Using triggered segments. When you play a composition, Rosegarden sweeps a playback pointer across the tracks from left to right playing the contents of the segments as it crosses them.
The pointer's position on the screen is tracked and controlled by a window called the transport. You can switch it to show musical time bar and beat counts , musical time with a flashing visual metronome, or audio sample frame times, using the topmost of the small buttons on the left of the transport window. The button immediately below that toggles the display so as to show time remaining to the end of the composition instead of from the start.
The main controls on the transport start the sequencer playing and pause it, fast forward the pointer position, rewind it, stop it or jump to beginning or end of composition. The transport display also shows the tempo and time signature in effect at the current playback position. Double-click on either of these to insert a new tempo or time signature change.
See Tempo and Time Signature for more ways to adjust these elsewhere in Rosegarden. You can also double-click anywhere on the main time display on the transport window, to enter a precise time that you want the playback position to be set to. Additional controls and a MIDI event display are hidden on the bottom flap on the transport, which can be toggled on or off using the arrow button next to it at the left.
Also on this extra portion there are buttons for recording, setting the loop start and end see Ranges and loops , soloing individual tracks, turning on or off the metronome see Metronomes , and silencing your MIDI devices the panic button.
To record a new segment into a track, first make sure the right tracks are armed for recording by selecting the red for audio tracks or yellow for MIDI tracks LED-style buttons on the track labels, and then use the transport's record control. This has the effect of both starting the transport, thus playing the existing composition, and recording into the appropriate track, or tracks. You can record any number of MIDI and audio tracks at once so long as your computer is powerful enough, and you have enough disk space.
Be careful not to accidentally leave tracks selected when you have finished using them and are trying to record somewhere else. Alternatively you can use punch-in record to separate the acts of starting the transport and entering record mode. Punch-in record is toggled with the Space bar. The latter is handy when synchronising to an external transport.
If you record to audio tracks, your recording to each track will be from the input currently selected for that track's instrument in the instrument parameter box. This will either be an external audio input or an audio submaster or master for performing mixdowns. If it's an external input, it will by default record from your soundcard's first available physical record in.
See also Audio Routing. When the JACK transport is in use, all of the applications that are subscribed to it share a common transport control, and you can start, stop, and move the transport from any one of them. This is particularly useful for synchronising the Rosegarden transport with a hardware MTC-capable device, or with software running on other computers connected via MIDI.
Rosegarden supports infrared remote controls for almost all transport functions. In both cases, you need to install and configure the LIRC server daemon. The exact details depend on your remote control and receiver, and you should refer to the LIRC web site for more information. Rosegarden uses the term studio to refer to everything it knows about the sound systems attached to the computer. The studio is built-in to every composition you create with Rosegarden.
This may be a MIDI or audio device. MIDI devices do not necessarily correspond directly to physical MIDI ports: they are just things with names that you can refer to, expected to work in particular ways. Configuration information such as MIDI patch maps can be attached to devices. These are the things that you can assign tracks to in order to choose which sound they play. By default, a device contains 16 instruments, created for you at startup: if the device is a MIDI device, then these will each be initialised to one of the 16 MIDI channels.
The instrument is where you set all the properties of a particular voice, such as program settings, reverb, volume etc. This can be configured in the MIDI device manager.
Audio and synth plugin devices do not have connections in the same way. For example, imagine a setup consisting of a PC with two physical MIDI ports, one of which has an external synth attached to it.(Contact me for details.) I've been working on this book for almost two years now, in addition to working on Rosegarden itself and helping the user community directly on rosegarden-user.
