I had issue with the sound volume on some pattern on 2.8, but it is not a big issue. I use a lot of really low volume, and I think you rework some stuff which make the volume a little quiet.
I have raised the sound, so not a problem.
But yes the sound is a little bit different on this 2.8 version.

What I like the most on the 2.7 version is the S channel which sound really nice.
I use a lot this channel to make long pad.
If you are able to put some of these channel on other channel, it would be great smile
Nice job Oliver, I have use more these cart than some other expensive gear, and yes it's a really cool soft !

I've made a binary with clang on linux.
I had the same compiler error, so it's a clang issue here AND a code which was written with a not too restrictive compiler ( which is cool but not too good ).

Clang is really a strict compiler and lots of 'undefined behaviour' ( const char * vs char * ) which are allowed with -fpermissive on gcc are strictly forbiden on clang.
So I will try to workaround theses issue on linux before trying to make a osx binary.

Today drop the idea to make a picoloop binary by yourself if you use a clang compiler !
It's just too much work before I clean this pedantic issue on clang compiler wink

So picoloop is not clean enough for this compiler smile

Hmm, ok, so it use clang instead of gnu gcc.
I will install it and try to debug the compilation from my debian laptop, thanks !
I have now access to a mac osx I will dig this.

Yes !

Like Garvalf say, the simpliest way to do the first build is using Makefile.PatternPlayer_raspi1_RtAudio
It will compile lots of .o file and RtAudio, then link all .o file to a big binary.

So, RtAudio on MacOSX should not use this -D__LINUX_ALSA__ -D__LINUX_PULSE__, so remove it from the Makefile, you will use the MACOSX.
Replace the two -D by this one -D__MACOSX_CORE__

Then, I think the compilation could continue until the link.
The link stage will not need this line from the Makefile.PatternPlayer_raspi1_RtAudio :-lasound -lpulse  -lpulse-simple
It will need library from macosx and here... I can not help, because I have only use few time a mac osx in my life... But reading the lgpt makefile I think this one should works : -arch i386 -framework SDL -framework Cocoa -framework Carbon

And install the SDL1.2 for macosx from SDL1.2 site.

And sent me via https://gist.github.com/ ( if it work again ).

If you listen to a really good piano track, and you discover this track was recorded using a midi software, then send to a vst, and FX, does it sound different ?
Use whatever is good for you and don't lie to yourself wink

Hmm, it's quite usefull IMHO, so yes smile
But I can not promise anything.
For me developping this software is like a giant puzzle, you need to put the right piece at the right time and I need to keep the fun, so I don't want to think too much at deadline, because it kill the fun and I don't planned to live from money on this software, my dayjob and my spare time are my top priority wink

So yes smile because stereo is usefull and it need to be solved. But when ???

Hi garvalf smile
Yes, it is doable, really smile

Like all feature, I take times to do, but really this one is doable.
I have not done it already for some reason, I will explain first the workflow of the sound :
- each "machine" send a mono stream to a monomixer;
- the "monomixer" has an amplifier which boost/reduce the signal and clip it if it is too loud, it has a send effect which goes to the FX, a delay ( here I should be able to replace the delay with wathever ) ;
- a global mixer ( AudioMixer ) receive the 4 monostream and send one new monostream which is the addition of the 4 monostream and apply the global amplification ( esc+up, esc+down) to the AudioEngine ;
- the audioEngine push the sound to the audiocard via the AudioDriver and sync it with the midi, at the same time it write the wav file ;

So to add the 4 wavefile stream feature, I need to :
- remove the audioMixer wich is really useless, today it only add the 4 mono stream together, which can be done elsewere for example in the AudioEngine ;
- use only the MonoMixer and the AudioEngine and create 4 wav file instead of one....

So really, there is not a lot of work to do it..
But, if I do it, i'd like to "be able" to change the effect of the FX menu. Because, ok we have a delay, but we can have a chorus, a bitcrusher, a reverb ( on pc desktop ), or other kind of delay, and at the same time have stereo and stereo effect...
I need to add a bitcrusher or some FX which is really not cpu intensive to have two different effect on all platform.

So yes, it is doable, and it will be done. it does not need a lot of work to do it, really smile But like all thing, I take long time to think twice about it. Because I don't want to do the work multiple time.
I need to redesign the FX to be able to have different UI which are linked to the FX use on a step ;
The 4 wav stream export need the stereo feature too smile
Now you better understand the design and how i will implement it smile

In the end, I think I will keep the FX like this, for now and add the multiple audio stream... Because it will be too much stuff, but I need to switch to stereo sample, I don't have choice... And I will only use 44.1KHz 16 bit stereo.

It's like ten to twenty hours of works I think, so, it can be done smile

Hey !!!
I'm on hollyday and your message come right to my heart Jalex smile
For me it's a : "I like your soft".

This last month, my spare time was spent on arduino, stm32, and usb, i'd like to create a hardware sequencer, so I spend time learning those new things.
Unfortunately it has impact on picoloop, I have not spent enough time on picoloop  this month... But there will be more trust me, I work secretly on it at the same time wink

@breakphase I think it's really cool what you are doing here. And the song you have done, I really like it.

For the short story, It's been now near 4 years I develop my program, and I'm not able to go to android/ios because I'm affraid of the touch screen interface.
Here you have a pretty decent tracker, I think it could be really cool, and people will enjoy sample tracker smile

But the tracker like interface with the various command... in the end it's not for me.
I become really shy when I use it. And I don't feel this way with the Octatrack, or mpc, or nanoloop, so... It's the interface.
I need another kind of interface to be able to speak to the "computer". It's me the problem here, I'm not compliant with all interface.
Not your program wink
Continue, it's a great program, or it seem to be, and when it will be available, I will download it wink

Hey ! This is a cool tune !
I like to see soft like this on ios smile
Unfortunately, the tracker like interface for a mobile device is not my taste...
Too difficult for me, i had problem with sunvox interface...
nanoloop, nanostudio, caustic are easier for me.
I'd like to see one day a pixitracker like interface with PLock smile

I think this is a funny device.
But the keyboard is really not my taste...
I don't know a more powerfull device for this price and this feature...
Unfortunately, it is not really the platform I want to play every day because of this awfull keyboard.
But for a midi sequencer.... It may be a great platform...

How does it sound on pocketchip ?
I've heard a lot of bad thing on the raspi1/2 pwm sound output.
Does the pocketchip sound weird or is it ok, like a real sound card ?

I think, if I buy one I will use a joypad like you say, but I will need a midi cable too. Can you try a simple non power hub to double check if you can plug multiple usb stuff on it ? and there is enough power ?

Thanks a lot
