Hi. Sorry to take up unnecessary bandwidth, but I just have to say, Juce totally rocks.
My woeful tale – Wrote a nontraditional MIDI sequencer software for the Apple II (Synthestra, from Decillionix), in the 80’s. Kinda quirky, but I liked it for my own music… Then the Apple II went away, and in the 90’s rewrote it, mostly, under Mac OS. Then the Mac OS (basically) went away, and I’m high and dry again.
Checked out Qt and Wx. Qt was ok. A bit of a nightmare to configure and link and stuff. Wx I never got to work.
Juce… it’s so clean and obvious. Everything is instantly familiar, and it linked easily, and between Friday and Sunday (I have this day job, see) got my Synthestra UI half up and running, and pipping little MIDI tones.
Thank you, Jules, for making this thing available. I aspire to be a commercial licensee… but we’ll see how it goes.
Addendum. The tragedy, of course, is that if I’d just written the thing in MS-DOS to begin with, it would still just work today. sigh.
