Re: Problems with virtual keyboards

How are you checking for MIDI events in Mixbus? Perhaps try to connect two instances of jack-keyboard together. When you press a note on one of them, you'll see the corresponding note pressed on the other. If this does not work, something strange is up. Maybe restart the Jack server? If this works, ...

Re: did this latest KX update brake my system

This notice on the latest Carla / JACK2 update might explain what you experienced. Jack server restart (or PC restart) is required after latest update.

Re: Some programming notes: C++ 11 features

But I had trouble. Certain Qt widgets would not let me connect their methods while others were OK. For example trying to connect &QSpinBox::valueChanged or &QComboBox::activated would not work, the IDE highlighted them, and the compiler erred. It's a mystery to me why. The format should be ...

Re: Easiest and best way to make rock drums

I don't know a lot (arguably anything) about drums, but I have found that, for me, it works best just programming drums using MIDI in Ardour (would be similar in Mixbus). Start with bass and kick to get basic rythm/feel, then add repeating highhat to keep tempo, and there you have a very basic groov...

Re: changing sounds for live-setup

I made this a while ago, which allows you to activate different tracks in Ardour from a MIDI message. It should work for different backtracks for songs: https://github.com/noedigcode/ArdourSongSwitcher Konfyt can be used for live keyboard playing - instantly switch between patches containing differe...

Re: bitwig midi

Bitwig insists on only using hardware ALSA MIDI ports. It also takes full control of those, so no other program can use it while Bitwig is using it. To work around this, you could create a virtual ALSA MIDI device and let Bitwig use this device. This wil allow you to: 1. Connect hardware ALSA MIDI p...

Re: Carla scripting, OSC, something - programmatic control

Sounds like you want to fake MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression), where each note can have its own pitchbend independent from other notes? Carla's OSC is limited - see the available commands in Help -> About -> OSC. Carla has a programming API, you could do some digging in it. There should be some info...

Re: Problem using AVL drumkits with a-Fluid synth in ardour

Your track type is possibly a MIDI+Audio track. Ensure that you create a MIDI only track.

Re: Problem using AVL drumkits with a-Fluid synth in ardour

You need to drag the track height larger.

Re: Wiki update

On another note: on the http://linuxaudio.org/ page, when you click on Resources, this link: lowlatency.linuxaudio.org Linux Audio Low-Latency Performance How-To points to a very outdated wiki page. Can this be removed? I think a single link to the wiki (already present) is sufficient IMHO. Also, th...

Re: How to use SFZero?

Carla switched possibly because the LinuxSampler licence has some restrictions which does not make it pure GPL. There was also some stability and high memory issues with the LS plugin that Carla was using. You could load it in Carla (the VST, or the SFZ directly) or in another host, like Ardour, QTr...

Re: How to use SFZero?

LinuxSampler actually has more complete SFZ support than SFZero. SFZero has very limited support at the moment. The .so file is possibly a VST (haven't tested it myself). Try putting it in your VST directory, such as ~/.vst (that is, the .vst directory in your home directory) and then scanning for p...

Re: Carla/SFZero transpose problem

If the SFZ you're using isn't too complicated, you could try converting it to an SF2 soundfont with Polyphone, which you can then easily load with Carla or one of the other Fluidsynth plugins. Even if it reduces some fidelity, it's still a convenient temporary middleground to easily use the samples,...

Re: Help finding the right software

I second Mididings, it works very well.

QMidiRoute will also help you convert Program Change messages to notes.
Here's a video showing how to set it up with PetriFoo.
