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...

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

Hi Yama, can you specify why you want to have other applications playing sound at the same time? Maybe there's a workaround to your problem. When working with jack: Have you tried patchage or catia? They work ab bit like ladish but are more recent stable. Hi. Yes, I wanted to transcribe a track, so...

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

I'd suggest to forget about Jack, ladish and all of that stuff. Jack is a great tool but can be a bit fiddly to setup. Simply use a recent version of Ardour in ALSA mode. Plugin your Keyboard, create a midi track with your favourite softsynth and set the input to your midi device. It's really easy ...

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

I'm astonished you are having so much difficulty here. Can you give us a run-down again on your kit? That's, hardware, Distro and applications. I managed to get linuxsampler running smoothly (and hence musescore), but I'm now hesitant of exploring other programs. Hardware: just onboard soundcard, m...

I find it confusing as well. Claudia is a ladish front end. If ladish is outdated, isn't Claudia as well? And if that shouldn't be used, doesn't that just throw out cadence as a whole?

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

Why should you use that ladish? Especially if is said it's old and no more supported. Keeping such software running is asking for problems. Ladisch? Sound routing? Why not use Jack? Or simply alsa? I plug in my midi-keyboard. And dedicate it to a wanted track within DAW and other music software. Th...

Your limits.conf is basically empty as every line is commented. You should include the two important lines as described here: https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/system_configuration#limitsconfaudioconf What distro are you running? You might also read: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&...

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

And every time I try to do that, I feel like the software just shits on my face. I'm tired of it. The worst part is that this didn't come as the result of me trying anything new. Stuff used to be working, now it doesn't. I really don't know what to do. I love open source. I hate windows, I hate jus...
