Hello folks, glad to be here!
I'm having another go at getting myself organised with Linux for Music. At the moment I have a fair stack of MIDI guitar hardware and MIDI expanders, a Roland GR300, a Yamaha QY300, assorted guitars, two USB-MIDI interfaces and a track record of always having to do something more urgent whenever I tried to get things married up and working well with Linux.
I've been running Linux for 6 years now. Previous experience includes CP/M, BSD4.x and a fair bit of coding in Assembler for Z80, COP400, NS32xxx and early ARM hardware.
Now happily using Bodhi Linux after some years of mostly 'buntu/Mint LTS releases and a serious distro-tasting habit in the background.
I'd really like to get a wind controller going - and funds are not as plentiful now that I'm retired. The AKAI EWI USB looks almost affordable, but still a lot of money in the UK. And their software is not exactly Linux ready.
Suggestions and sage advice are welcome!
