Re: How to toggle MIDI CC from controller so it stays at value 127 then 0 when pressed again

I lifted the mididings python code from the previous post & added a jack-rt backend to it. You'll need to have mididings installed. Paste this into a file and save as a python script ex. "latch-on-off.py" and run with python latch-on-off.py. Then route your keyboard controller through ...

How to toggle MIDI CC from controller so it stays at value 127 then 0 when pressed again

I have a keyboard which can send some CC's with switch presses but the problem is that it sends value 127 when pressed and value 0 when released. In this case it is not ideal, it would have been more useful if the keyboard held value 127 or 0 until the next keypress. (To toggle between the on / off ...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

OK. I just don't understand why you make all these points about an app that is not about privacy, but about making a sort of "alarm" out of sensors. They do mention "privacy" just because they force connections through Tor. What is there to understand that isn't already obvious?...

Re: MOD Devices sponsors Linuxmusicians.com

raboof, I realise it's not much comfort to hear this now, and that running a forum such as this is for the most part a thankless task, but don't take things too personally. That's when it starts dragging you down. The objective interpretation of the situation is that: - Websites & forums cost ti...

Re: Suggestions for motherboard/processor combo

I'd avoid any kind of gamer machine and their ridiculous cooling and overclocking setups and just go for standard and very well established chipsets. That usually means Intel + Intel + Intel. Not because I think Intel are great or trying to promote them but simply because they are the standard again...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

There's nothing more that needs to be read or understood apart from the simple, basic, universal truth that Android is a spy platform designed and built from the ground up by Google (who has very close connections to the Pentagon & CIA) to spy on and collect intel on you. 24/7/365. That is just ...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

The Bandshed list is somewhat useful but if they'd bothered to read reports on here (and elsewhere I'm sure) they'd have known about a lot more devices. The old EMU 0404 PCI card (possibly also the PCI-Express version but I haven't tested that one) works great under Linux and the audio quality is ex...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

They are San Francisco based so there's the first hint at potential trouble. Why :?: It's a super expensive city and that will be reflected in the pricing of the product. Linux & Open Source products at premium corporate rates just doesn't feel right. Hmm. question: Which companies actually thi...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

Maybe I don't understand your contribution or wrongly, but I live in Germany where - an example of many in world history - something like this (control) was tried around 1930. Germany 2018 is a STASI Police State. Not much has changed in that regard. Nor will it, for the forseeable future. By the w...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

The concept is nice but their prices are not exactly in keeping with the Open Source community spirit. They are San Francisco based so there's the first hint at potential trouble. I also sure hope this isn't some Tech equivalent of buying supermarket "organic" and "ethically sourced&q...

Re: What tools are you missing

A LV2 or VST host where a patch handling implementation is actually usable. Blame the LV2 specification. It's shocking how something as basic/fundamental as data storage/organization is so horrendously ill-conceived and unwieldy. But then, he did make the absurd choice of turtle for a storage forma...
