Description [fr]

Un trackeur modulaire, par la Psycle Team (PSYCLEDELICS).

Psycle est un trackeur modulaire. Il supporte différents types de plugins (plugins natifs et plugins au format VST2 standards).

C'est un outil de création musicale utilisant une interface de type tracker.

Il peut être utilisé pour tout type de musique, en utilisant :
• ses plugins natifs (de synthés et effets),
• des plugins VST2 (de synthés et effets),
• son échantillonneur interne,
• des fichiers. Wav d'effets d'échantillonneurs.

Les notes peuvent être entrées :
• via des patterns (motifs) dans lesquelles vous pouvez également utiliser différentes commandes (plugins spécifiques ou généraux)
• aussi bien que par des paramètres automatisés via des commandes mcm et twk.

Les patterns sont ensuite organisées en séquences linéaires, qui deviennent l'ordre de la musique.
Cette séquence peut être sauvegardée au format ".psy", mais aussi ".wav" (ce qui permet de compresser la chanson au format ".mp3" ou ".ogg" par exemple).

Psycle est libre et gratuit. Il est codé par une équipe nommée PSYCLEDELICS

Description [en]

Psycle is a free, Open-Source, music creation program that offers an easy way to create your own music, fast, and with high quality.

Psycle uses a classical tracker interface (a text grid of notes which are sequenced one after the other), coupled with modularity (plugins) that allow to extend the sounds that you get from it.

It supports three ways to get sound: its own native format, the VST Plugin standard, and recorded .wav samples using the sampler machine.

Notes are entered in patterns, where you can also use commands (plugin specific, or global), as well as automating parameters via the mcm and twk commands. These patterns are then organized in a linear sequence, which becomes the song order.
This sequence is the song and can be saved in .psy format, but also to .wav (this allows to compress the song in .mp3 or .ogg formats for example)

It's coded by a team named PSYCLEDELICS

QPsycle has been retaken by baneofshadow, who has made it compile again with current QT version, and is slowly adding features back.

The psycle-core engine needs a rethinking on what should it be. There are two ways to go from here on, take psycle-mfc engine and convert it into a library like psycle-core using parts of psycle-core where possible, or take psycle-core, remove the parts that are more problematic, and base that on current psycle-mfc or new designs.


Here some facts about Psycle:

☑ A 64 Tracks Pattern Editor, with up to 1024 lines.
☑ 256 sequence positions.
☑ Multi-channel audio Routing (machine) view to interconnect the virtual machines in order to apply different effects.
☑ Internal Stereo Sampler unit which supports .wav and .iff files of any sampling rate, 8/16 and 24bits, mono or stereo.
☑ 70+ Native Plugins (generators & effects), most of them open-source and with an easy to use API to create new ones.
☑ Multithreaded audio engine.
☑ Support for VST1 and VST2 plugin standard, including support for JBridge.
☑ Importing of .xm's/.s3m's/.it's/.mod's.
☑ Exporting to wav, as well as recording realtime to .wav
☑ Configurable Keyboard Layout
☑ Midi-In Support ( control Psycle using a midi keyboard, or even a software sequencer)
☑ Themes and skins support and much more.
