Some fonts produce don't produce sound when loaded with fluidsynth through terminal

Some fonts load fine, others give this warning: No preset found on channel X (0 to 16) [bank=0 prog=0] If I load these same files with the fluidsynth GUI with calfjackhost they play sound just fine without having to do anything, but I have a script to launch different instruments automatically, and ...

Re: Why learn music theory?

What got me interested in this rabbit hole is the question, could strong AI make music that is virtually indistinguishable from human written music. Does it matter? This could mean that an AI is as good as writing the shittiest music a human could make. I think the music itself could be more intere...

Portable setup for recording natural sounds

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows what's good hardware for recording sounds in the wild. I imagine that for about the price of a phone you could get a good mic with some form of storage for recording very high quality audio, but I don't know anything about what would make a piece of hardware good. A...

Helm no longer plays from MIDI keyboard

Here you can see: a2j is running, jack is running, Helm is set to use jack and it even recognizes my BK492 keyboard. But I press the keys and nothing happens. https://paste.xinu.at/8LPvQj/ The keyboard works fine with other programs such as fluidsynth, vcvrack, even helm within an Ardour session bec...

Re: How do I use a soundfont that came as a zip with wav files?

2nd EDIT It did load with qsample. I wonder why not with fluidsynth.

EDIT Well, nothing seems to happen when I load that file with Fluidsynth.

WHERE is the name of the current preset being used in Zyn-fusion?

I'm so lost in this GUI. There's no settings for jack, and the name of the current preset is nowhere to be found. Am I blind?

Is it possible to tweak Helm knobs during playback and have them recorded?

Using Ardour and Helm, sometimes I'll record something (midi) and later find out that playing with some knobs like distortion or reverb yields a nice effect during certain parts. I can't do that "live" unless I'm playing with only one hand. So is there a way to record MIDI, play it back and record m...

Can't execute fluidsynth with a soundfont from a script

Doing fluidsynth -a jack -j ~/soundfonts/KawaiUprightPiano-20180102.sf2 directly from terminal works as intended, however, putting the exact same line within a bash script results in: Parameter '~/soundfonts/KawaiUprightPiano-20180102.sf2' not a SoundFont or MIDI file or error occurred identifying i...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Does Claudia work on your system even if it's based on Ladish? Have you tried? No, that's what I originally meant when I said ladish wasn't launching. Now I'm using patchbay. I'd like some more automation in the process of plugging my keyboard and having it produce sound, but I guess this is good e...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

I've also been using patchage. I liked that ladish had sessions, and because I use cadence to start up jack, and because ladish is right there in the programs to open from within cadence, I woudln't have guessed that it's unmaintained. That is pretty odd, to keep a non-maintained program featured i...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Have you tried Claudia? It might just do the trick and it has sessions. I think Ladish is not really used a lot in itself but Claudia / Catia could be the way to go. In AV-Linux these work flawlessly. https://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Applications:Claudia But Claudia is a Ladish front-end. This is wh...
