ttrk is my MIDI sequencer application. I was annoyed by the bad step editors found on pretty much all MIDI sequencers I could find, and since I was big fan of the tracker interface, I used the user interface ideas behind a tracker in my design.
There are five main goals of ttrk:
The original version of ttrk was written in 1999 and was a Qt application which ran under X. It was pretty cool, had some neat custom widgets and looked a bit like Sonic Foundry ACID with little tracker editors. However, I didn't like the idea of using my main PC in my studio or at shows, so in late 2000 and early 2001 I rewrote ttrk as a console application so I could run it on my older computer.
ttrk uses the s-lang library for help with the console output, libpthreads for threading, and zlib to make the saved files really small.
ttrk comes with a detailed usage guide and a key listing. An online version in html is on this webpage. Please let me know if you can't understand something, or find a feature unintuitive, and I will attempt to explain it better. If there is anything you would like to know how to do, and can't find it in the documentation, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see the ChangeLog for details on what was updated.
