Re: First Linux DAW

KXstudio is a good package, but it is far from a complete system and follows the personal preferences of the packager. However, if a package exists both there, and on the main debian resource then the KX one is likely to be better tuned. debian's packager (for the GUI) is synaptic. I don't know if K...

Re: qmidiarp-->Yoshimi

Hmm, I'm fast running out of ideas :( In settings, set send reports to console. then in the midi section, enable Log incoming events Do you see any messages?

Re: qmidiarp-->Yoshimi

Re: qmidiarp-->Yoshimi

So is qmidiarp sending jack midi rather than alsa midi?
If so, you need to make sure Yoshimi is set for this as well.

Re: qmidiarp-->Yoshimi

Why are you using a2j? Qmidiarp works with ALSA and so does Yoshimi. Presumably your keyboard in MIDI over USB. Are the keyboard, qmidiarp and yoshimi *actually* connected? qjackctl provides a user-friendly way to check this (and make the connections too). To check Yoshimi itself, open it's virtual ...

Re: Snötäckta fält (snow covered fields)

Enjoyed the music, but like the others didn't understand the lyrics. Never having the opportunity of learning any foreign languages as a youngster it's extremely difficult now to learn any.
