Re: Live performance with Midi keyboard

Oddly, this is something I've thought about extensively. I have a number of keyboard controllers and a 4x4 pad. Two of them (Korg Kontrol49 and PADkontrol), can use SysEx messages to alter on-board indicators. I'm chugging along on a LuaJIT engine for routing/transforming MIDI and launching/tearing ...

Re: Rosegarden and Zyn

Does that switcheroo happen each play? More recent versions, "2.5.1" and up, have a revert params selection in the first menu that will reload the XMZ file and restore your settings. If rosegarden does this at the start of play, this won't help, but I added that to cope with another sequen...

Re: Congratulations to Matt Tytel & Helm !

I wish more of the freeware synths would open their code. Whats the point in keepng it closed if you're not planning on selling it? I agree. I can think of more than a couple where a synth has a bunch of nice bits, and playing mix-and-match with some algos might yield some interesting synths. It's ...

The demo is useful as an effects rack, before payday arrives.

Tabbed overlays would be a VERY nice feature to add to QTractor. That would make certain jobs MUCH easier.

Re: Problem with Zynaddsubfx User Interface

You're right. It did override. As much as I find the display of alternate names, in this case, humorous, I suppose it's very confusing for the user. The old logic should be pretty trivial to restore.

Re: Problem with Zynaddsubfx User Interface

The ThinLead/eviltelephone thing is easy to explain. The bank window entries are determined by the file name. The display, if any, in the main window, is determined by a field in the XIZ file. In your particular example, the file is 0004-ThinLead.xiz, but the XML instrument description contains this...

Re: [ANN] Qtractor 0.7.0 - The Muon Base is out!

Here's an oddity I'm running into. When the session file is given on the command line, qtractor shows 120bpm as the tempo regardless of the file's tempo. It plays correctly though.

Re: [ANN] Musical Artifacts - find presets, configs, sounds

https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts?apps=zynaddsubfx Note than more than a few of the Zyn presets are currently bundled with ZynAddSubFX, the laba170 patches for instance. There is a new bank I've put on the ZASFX git repo that contains some of the single instrument I've found floating. In many...

You nailed it on #lad. Replacing the drobila-lad stuff, got it working.

muse 2.2.1 100% cpu + OOM killer on start

I wanted to try muse sequencer to see if it might fit my thinking better than qtractor, but I'm running into a problem. When I try to start, I get a splash screen, and then it winds up spinning and eating all the CPU and memory until the OOM killer stomps it and who knows what else. What's going on ...

Re: very hi DSP load with Zynadd sub fx

SUBsynth is a very expensive engine computationally. For each note, it's taking white noise and applying very many bandpass filters to it. For each non-zero amplitude overtone, there's more computational load. This will be the case no matter whether your using Yoshimi or ZynAddSubFX. It's rather as ...

Re: Sound research from '83

Those may be Emu Emulator 1's. Samplers, in other words. So if that's the case you'll need a similarish sounding low-fi 8bit sample, assign it over the required range of the keyboard and tweak the envelopes & filter to match. I think you're on to something. If you listen really closely, there d...

Re: Editing several MIDI tracks at the same place

This is an exciting development. Could I perhaps suggest a set of tabs, so that one can select which part one is working with on in the fly? My application was recently breaking a midi track written in chords into several mono tracks, each to its own instrument. Maybe this is a bit special though, b...

Re: ZynAddSubFX: Make Controllers Section Be Part Of .xiz Fi

Do you have a thread for what you are talking about? Not really. This is just a poke to Fundamental about something we chatted about on IRC. The idea is that you might have an instrument where the individual kit elements might each have distinct controller parameters. As it stands now, you need to ...

Re: What's important in a softsynth (sticky?)

no softsynth has "everything." zyn is pretty darn close. :) The only non-trivial things I do really miss there are true PWM and hard sync. There are a few other things that should be trivial to add. Modern filters would be nice, but there are so many filters (count 'em) and so little comp...
