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 firstname.lastname@example.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
(0.3.4.1) 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.
