Re: Midi controller not working in Bitwig (Works in WINE though)

According to the man page, a2j_control dhw should disable exporting of hardware. However, the daemon will still be running. To stop it from running, try a2j_control stop and/or a2j_control exit in various combinations and see if the daemon stays down after restart? I haven't used a2j_control myself.

Re: Midi controller not working in Bitwig (Works in WINE though)

Pipewire is a new audio system under development. I didn't know anyone was using it yet.
Perhaps you can try to stop it. What Linux distro are you using?

Re: Midi controller not working in Bitwig (Works in WINE though)

I guess a better way to see if anything is connected to your ALSA MIDI device is to just use aconnect --list A connection looks like client 28: 'SAMSON Graphite MF8' [type=kernel,card=3] 0 'SAMSON Graphite MF8 MIDI 1' Connecting To: 129:0[real:0] Connected From: 129:0 while no connections look like ...

Re: Midi controller not working in Bitwig (Works in WINE though)

Sorry to hear. If you still wanted to debug (you could try with the demo version of Bitwig), you can start by seeing if anything is using your ALSA MIDI device: Run amidi -l to list MIDI devices. Run amidi -p hw:2,0,0 -d to dump raw data from your MIDI device, changing "hw:2,0,0" to your desired dev...

Re: Midi controller not working in Bitwig (Works in WINE though)

Bitwig uses MIDI through ALSA and requires exclusive access to a device, meaning any other programs using ALSA MIDI, including ALSA/JACK bridges, need to be stopped.

Re: USB Audio interface for low latency

I have no idea if some USB sound cards are known to have lower latency than others, but assuming that you can achieve the required low latency with most devices, other factors that play a role is the speed of your laptop and the general low latency audio tips (low latency/realtime adjustments for ke...

Re: Routing different MIDI instruments to different applications

You can also use Konfyt for this. https://github.com/noedigcode/konfyt MIDI can be input on one MIDI port, and then multiple instrument layers can be created, each using a different MIDI channel. SF2 and SFZ instruments can be hosted directly in the app. External synth apps can also be used by using...

Re: USB-Midi keyboard UMK49 Jack problems.

It looks like you're using the raw MIDI Driver setting in QJackCtl, since there is a system MIDI client in your MIDI tab and it won't allow you to make ALSA MIDI connections. It looks like the raw MIDI driver takes control of ALSA devices exclusively so no other program can make connections. In this...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

Bitwig's JACK support is only for audio. For MIDI, Bitwig still uses ALSA MIDI devices directly and exclusively, i.e. you can't use a device while Bitwig is using it. Bitwig also doesn't show up in the ALSA MIDI tag in QJackCtl, MIDI configuration is done within bitwig as shown by jonetsu. Previous ...

Re: Installing Ubuntu Studio

I suggest you use Windows if you want to shrink its own partition, and then the Ubuntu installer for the rest (manual option).
There are reports of Windows not wanting to boot up after its partition was shrunk with Linux. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but it is unnecessary to risk it.
