Seems to be related to python version.

I would install it from sources, and include this fix: https://github.com/dsacre/mididings/com ... 2d6538db19
Definitely wort documenting own problems here! Now I had same problem, and nice to find here how to fix it :-)

Re: Looking for sampler

Most likely not what you are looking for, but sfz has opcode loop_type and that can be 'alternate'.

For sfz, I would try sfizz or liquidsfz, and linuxsampler as last resort.

From commercial options, Renoise Redux is one possibility.

Re: your favourite guitar playing style ?

As many people are looking forward to learn to play guitar by hearing a great guitarist. Something inside us makes us say “What is that sound? I wanna play that!”. Once you have experienced this, you are already on the way to being a guitarist. If you have never played before, there are so many typ...

So I doubt using an eight bar MIDI file, even if it was played by Steve Gadd would be a case that a lawyer would take on. :D
I fully agree! :-)

No, but that way noone is getting in trouble for using patterns.
There is no point taking humanly played great performance, then quantize it to death, and then randomize.

Re: Midi Drum Patterns

Yeah, electronic music typically is happy with a strictly on time rhythm. I guess if one just wanted the pattern, and as these can't be copyrighted, one could just select the pattern they liked, quantise it, and then randomise slightly, just a few percent, that way it certainly wouldn't infringe an...

Re: Midi Drum Patterns

We are concerned with patterns here. Why sample performances these days when it is so easy to synthesise drum sounds or make your own samples, or use some PD samples. Synthesisers with drums on them are so common these days, one is almost tripping over them. It does make sense that one cannot copyr...

Re: Midi Drum Patterns

And a database that hosts all possible combinations of drum patterns (425k drum patterns points in this direction but is still far away from the end point) would ridiculate the question about copyrightability. IMHO Strict on beat patterns would be doable to cover all possible beats. However, for hu...

Re: Midi Drum Patterns

Based on my understanding the person who dug this up did not think this through at all. The SD2 drum patterns include this played by specific artists - Carter Beauford is in there. That kind of pattern is easily tractable and could get you in serious trouble. So in general, i think it's wise to jus...

EDIT: All the midi files for Superior Drummer 2 are in there - all 425,000 of them. Those are NOT free to use, if I'm not mistaken?
I suppose you are free to use them, but distributing them is not legal. And I suppose same goes to some other stuff there. Basicly, pirated stuff.

Re: Midi Drum Patterns

From what I can tell, there's a few hundred grooves in there, and no, I don't think you'll spend ages digging for the right groove. You already know the genre of your track, which gives you the basic feel, and you know whether it's a triplet based groove or straight 16ths, so that makes it so you h...

Re: Music of landscapes... (4 videoclips)

You are my role model! You produced fine music, shot fine video clips and combined them nice way, keep on going! Scenes show pretty similar to my home region, but no miracle there, only few hundred kilometers away :-)
