The current terminatorX release is Version 3.84.
Debian users may prefer to install the terminatorX Debian package via apt-get.
RedHat or Fedora users can get RPMs from Planet CCRMA.
Mandrake users may want to check out Thac's RPMs here.
- A Linux or FreeBSD system with the GNU C library installed.
- XFree86 with DGA/DirectMouse support. DGA should be available in all XFree86 releases after 3.3, but not every X-server provides DGA, so please check that your X-server has that feature.
- The Gimp Toolkit - gtk+ Version 2.0 or above
- LADSPA The Linux Audio Developer's Simple Plugin API
- LibXML which comes installed with most distributions
- If you want to use support for Linux' POSIX capabilities libcap is required.
- terminatorX supports Steve Harris' liblrdf which allows categorizing LADSPA plugins. Although terminatorX can be built without liblrdf support I strongly recommend installing it when you plan on using Steve Harris' wonderful plugin collection with terminatorX.
- terminatorX' MIDI interface is based on the ALSA sequencer API and therefor requires a working ALSA setup
To enhance audio file support I strongly recommend installing:
- libaudiofile for loading wav, aiff and au files and sox for pre-listening and loading of file formats not supported by libaudiofile.
- libvorbis for loading of OGG Vorbis (.ogg) streams and ogg123 for pre-listening to them.
- The mad (MPEG Audio Decoder) library for loading mp3 streams and mpg123 or mpg321 for pre-listening of these.
Note: Most of these libraries are included with current Linux distributions - so you might want to check your vendor's package list before building the libraries from source.
These are old releases - for the current version see the section above.
I still have the "get you started"-samples scratch.wav and beat.wav available. If you have some audio files to scratch on but no beats (loops) lying around here is tX_beats.tar.bz2 which contains ten more beats I downloaded somewhere else - Sorry I don't remember where they're from - if you know please tell me so I can put some credits up here.
If you want to have even more samples check out Erik's huge sample-archive (http/ftp).
