Re: Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

Any idea what could be happening? Yes, I've a report on github about that and was able to reproduce and fix it today. Please update your checkout and let me know if it works for you as well. I've looked at the messages from jack and nothing peculiar happens (DSP load, or xruns, etc) It happens beca...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

Will do! I've noticed that using my expression pedal to control the volume effect's gain causes guitarix to close in version 0.39.0 (sourceforge) and the latest one from git. It doesn't do this when running 0.36.1. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times with each version to be sure I'm not goi...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

Ah, yes, it was a quick inclusion without much testing, have fix it now. Save issue is resolved! Thanks very much! Most midi controllers been configured as push buttons, means they send 127 when pushed. That is the default "on/off state transition toggle" option. Then "constant state toggle" is for...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

"always toggle" solves the double clicking problem but requires the effect to be saved in the opposite of the desired state. So if you want the effect to start off when the preset is switched to, you must save it in the on state and vice versa. In other words, "always toggle" seems to toggle the sta...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

Ah ok, I see what it is doing via midi monitor. It should be working but perhaps my footcontroller (Midi Commander) isn't able to receive messages (though it does show up as an output in guitarix and jack).. I think the root of the problem is Midi Commander always sends an alternating CC value of 0 ...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Groups Issue

OK with the version I already have (0.36.1), I can actually get the behavior I want as follows: In engine->midi controller, check "include MIDI controllers in presets" (as tramp suggested above). When assigning a control to a foot switch, save the preset (preset selection->save changes). The thing I...

Re: Audio to midi

"1/ When using Rakarack this way, I'm not able to make the midi signals release, they get stuck. This means I cannot use long lasting synths like a pad or something, as each tone will just be playing forever. It also means recording the midi gets really messy - every new note goes into a giant clust...

Re: Guitarix MIDI Groups Issue

For me, in the patch view it visually appears to be the case that the effects' states are based on what was previously saved, but in the live view mode it shows what is actually on or off. I am using the MeloAudio MIDI Commander btw.

Re: Guitarix MIDI Groups Issue

Yes, that's the default in guitarix. Say you've a effect, a wahwah for example, which is part of multiple presets, when you switch the preset you would keep the state you've set with the midi controller so that your controller and the effect been in sync. If you don't want/need that, you could sele...

Guitarix MIDI Output -> MIDI Foot Controller

Is there a way to setup Guitarix such that when an effect is turned on, the midi controller hardware receives the signal? I want my foot controller to lightup based on what effects are on in a preset. Currently it is only unidirectional - the controller can send Guitarix messages.

Guitarix MIDI Groups Issue

If I turn on an effect in preset 1, then switch to preset 2 which also has an effect that uses the same midi message, it will now be on as well. So say preset 1 has a distortion ("Group") that is controlled by MIDI 22 and preset 2 has a chorus ("Group") that is controlled by MIDI 22, if you turn on ...

Re: unable to start a2jmidid automatically

Just found a solution - try moving the command "a2jmidid -e &" to the "Execute script after Startup" option instead of the first one in Jack. Worked for me.
