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 15.12 “Peace” released!

Rosegarden rounds out 2015 with a new CMake build system and several bug fixes contributed by David Faure of KDE. The new build system preserves the best features of the previous system, while adding out-of-source builds, and the ability to compile with Qt 4 or Qt 5. (Qt 5 builds are functional, but do have some problems. We encourage you to give a Qt 5 build a try and report bugs, but package maintainers and production users should stick with Qt 4 for the time being.)

Beyond ironing the kinks out of the new build system, Ted was hard at work sorting out bugs, Yves added a new pop-up notes feature that allows you to include explanatory text inside your compositions, and Michael cobbled together a way to fake acciaccatura, by allowing you to put a tremolo slash on a grace note in order to have LilyPond produce acciaccatura rather than appoggiatura.

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!
