What is Rosegarden?

Rosegarden is a music composition and editing environment based around a MIDI sequencer that features a rich understanding of music notation and includes basic support for digital audio.

Rosegarden is an easy-to-learn, attractive application that runs on Linux, ideal for composers, musicians, music students, and small studio or home recording environments.

Rosegarden 16.06 “Rhapsody in Blue” released!

Ted Felix did the lion's share of the work for this release. In addition to fixing several bugs, Rosegarden implements a new track archive feature, along with new solo button functionality.

This new feature changes the behavior of the solo button on the free-floating transport window, as well as the solo buttons on the transport toolbars available in the notation and matrix editors. Clicking on the solo button in any of those windows will toggle solo on the selected track. In the editors, the track that is being edited becomes the selected track.

This functionality is slightly different from before. Previously, once solo was turned on, changing the selected track would cause solo to switch to the selected track. Now, the selected track and the solo track are decoupled.

Special thanks to AOE - the open web company, a global Magento Agentur & leading Open Source web solutions provider, for their generous sponsorship of Rosegarden development!
