Re: Carla preset changes via Midi CC or Program Change?

Thanks, those are good suggestions.

a) Fader pickup - very good idea. Will probably only be able to add this a bit later.

b) Move layers up/down - this is now implemented on the testing branch on Github, so you can try it out if you want or wait for the official release (hopefully) later this month.

Re: Carla preset changes via Midi CC or Program Change?

I found another way using OSC. See Carla's supported OSC commands by going to Help -> About, OSC tab. For example, if you have the ZynAddSubFx LV2 plugin as your first plugin, the OSC command required to change the preset is: /Carla/0/set_program 400 where 0 corresponds to the first plugin, and 400 ...

Re: Carla preset changes via Midi CC or Program Change?

In the Carla plugin properties window, there are program change options: - Map Program Changes: does not send the bank/program messages to the plugin itself, but uses it to change the "MIDI Program" (the combo box at the top). - Send Bank/Program Changes: sends the bank/program messages th...

Re: Help with Carla channel filtering.

The "..." button menu from where you select the channel is only for MIDI learn I think, i.e. controlling the plugin parameters via MIDI. But they are not the actual plugin parameters themselves. The MIDI filter plugin passes or blocks channels. The 1-16 dropdown boxes on the left determine...

Re: Fluidsynth help - Selecting instrument with stdin

pyfuidsynth actually creates JACK or ALSA MIDI and audio devices, just like normal Fluidsynth. Thus you can route MIDI and audio as usual, without using the noteon, noteoff etc. commands. So it is actually then a lot easier using pyfluidsynth. Note that you can select the audio and MIDI driver in th...

Re: No midi in/out BITWIG 3.2

Bitwig uses ALSA MIDI in a way that requires exclusive access to it. If anything else is using it before Bitwig, then it won't be able to use it (and vice versa). Currently you are using a JACK MIDI bridge (a2j), so that is using the ALSA MIDI devices, thus Bitwig can't access them. You have to stop...

Re: How to install Carla on Ubuntu Studio 18.04

The .deb file (the link you posted, which is the same as found at https://kx.studio/Repositories) downloads fine for me using my browser, then opening and installing it with gdebi or whatever.

Re: Live midi

For on the fly patch preset switching, transposition and routing to other synths/effects, you can try Konfyt. https://github.com/noedigcode/konfyt, http://www.noedig.co.za/konfyt/ Ardour works for me as a plugin host for effects and synths and you can easily route MIDI and audio from Konfyt to Ardou...

Re: [ANN] Konfyt Digital Keyboard Workstation v1.1.2

I had successfully compiled Konfyt, though I had to compile it without support for Carla. Couldn't find the Carla development package. Sorry, but my OS doesn't have the command pkg-config. pkg-config is used to correctly add the dependant libraries. It is used for Carla, but also for liblscp, JACK ...

Re: [ANN] Konfyt Digital Keyboard Workstation v1.1.2

What exactly do you mean by crash? Does Konfyt crash when you try to load it, or does the SFZ simply not load properly? Konfyt crashes when I try to load the SFZ. but works with Carla By this, do you mean by running Konfyt with the --carla command line argument? No I can load the SFZ with Carla and...

Re: [ANN] Konfyt Digital Keyboard Workstation v1.1.2

That's odd. Do you mind posting the qmake error message?
Also, the output of

Code: Select all

pkg-config --libs carla-standalone
I will try to test on a Ubuntu 18.04 based system.
