I'm not sure if latest brahms sources compile with KDE CVS.  There's a special
branch with additional features for brahms (announcement appended).  If
make fails ask on kde-multimedia@kde.org for more details.  Further at least
~ 10 days ago one need alsa (or hack sources) to compile brahms. --without-alsa
did not work but maybe this is fixed already.

I have created a second branch for new developments in aRts today. It was
more or less the only way to deal with the following two conflicting goals:

 * KDE is in feature-freeze currently

 * there is a talk held by Jan Wuerthner and me about aRts/Brahms at
   LinuxTag2001 in a few weeks, and we're currently still working getting
   some things implemented properly in aRts/Brahms

So to fulfill these, for kdemultimedia/arts there is now

  * bugfixes only
  * will be released with KDE2.2

  * will contain new features
  * will be merged back into HEAD after KDE2.2

If you want to update your CVS copy of aRts to the branch, do:

stefan@stefan:~/src$ cd kdemultimedia/arts
stefan@stefan:~/src/kdemultimedia/arts$ cvs update -r ARTS_0_7_BRANCH

Some goals for the branch/aRts-0.7.x unstable development are:

 * environments (for sequencer integration: the sequencer creates an
   environment with some devices, for instance a mixer and synthesizers,
   that can be saved easily with all settings made there with the song
   file, and restored later)
 * software emulation of a multichannel mixer
 * more work on aRts midi support (synchonization with audio, timing,
 * harddisc recording
 * ladspa support
 * implement all features fully that were present in the last aRts/CORBA
   ( release, that is for instance
     - reading/playing AKAI samples
         - modifying instrument parameters while playing (instrument GUIs)
         - recording from soundserver by a small program (old artsrec/artsmon)
         - schedule cycles of modules properly

Here is a screenshot of the mixer code in ARTS_0_7_BRANCH:


Hope that makes everybody happy ;)

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
