Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

I actually tried selling it to a local store this weekend, they wouldn't have it-- they said they've been having issues with Arturia products lately... big suprise. I also tried renaming the *.led file to a *.bin file, and it got to about 93% of the update before it error'd out (it didn't brick the...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

I am using version 1.1 of the MCC software: [...] Also, I'm not using wine, I'm using MCC on a Windows 10 PC I've tried several different methods of installing the firmware: I've tried plugging in the MiniLab before launching and clicking upgrade in MCC, I've tried plugging in the MiniLab after lau...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

Maybe a registry leftover? You can rename .wine folder to .wine-original run winecfg to generate a fresh .wine, and do a fresh arturia software install before you plugin the minilab, and reboot. Then plugin it in, and test. (But if a manual describes otherwise, believe the manual. Too many modern p...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

http://i.imgur.com/SipDZmM.png Still no luck, I'm thinking maybe it looks for some serial number from the MiniLab to determine what filetype it'll allow you to select? Are you absolutely, definitely, super duper sure you've got version 1.1 of the Midi Control Center software from Arturia? http://s1...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

I'd never do a firmware upgrade of an entrenched mainstream device, usine wine. And I use wine a lot. Go find a machine with the matching OS that the firmware routine is designed for, or risk creating a brick with silent keys and pads. Good luck! Cheers I agree. I did not have to upgrade the firmwa...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

The Minilab seems to work with Linux systems only if you're running firmware 3.0.0.5, but if you're running firmware 2.1.0.2 or below then you'll likely run into issues-- such is the case I'm in. My Minilab is running firmware 2.1.0.2, I haven't successfully found a way to upgrade to 3.0.0.5. When ...

Re: Problem connecting MiniLab on Linux OS

Hope nobody minds me answering this old post. But it kept popping up in Google when I searched for tips on the Arturia MiniLab. Strangely enough I do not have any problems w/ this Midi keyboard in Linux Mint 17 (which is based on Ubuntu 14). Maybe kernel 3.13 has the support that we need for this ke...

Jack-rack

Here's my Jack-rack Howto. The "hat trick" as far as I'm concerned lies in the connections tab from Qjackcrl . Because Qjackctl is a very vague and non-intuitive application in my opinion. I want to add sound effects like reverb, flanger and faser to my synth. A way to do this (during playing) is wi...

Re: Midi keyboards

@Tux99: Never would have guessed that 'ye 'ol Korg is not what it used to be. I grew up in the 80's and in my recollection all professional bands played a Korg. @Briandc: Thank you for the Behringer tips! I must confess that I've never heard of this brand. See above remark of mine. Because I'm not a...

Re: Midi keyboards

@Tux99: Thank you for the advice. So for a proper keyboard, that's worth the money, I'd better stick to good ol' trusted brands like Roland. I take it that 'ye old Korg is also a good brand to buy (except maybe for the Nanokey and the Microkey).

Re: Midi keyboards

Anyhow, for now I have a good digital piano and I use a cheap USB midi converter like this . Be careful with those because some of them simply don't work (the 2nd I bought works like a champ though, for 3 years now). If you know your midi ports work this could be a limp along solution. Thanks for t...

My quick 'n' dirty Midi and softSynth doc

I recently acquired a midi keyboard and it took me quite a while to figure out how to get even one tone out of it. :wink: Even though there are a few good how-to's on the 'net. Personally on e of the biggest problems was to check if the Midi keyboard was even sending Midi information over the USB ca...

Midi keyboards

This is my first post. I think I'll post my quick 'n' dirty how-to on Midi keyboards and synthesizers later on. Currently I own two second hand flimsy Midi keyboards: the M-Audio Oxygen 8 ver. 2 (see picture below, not sold anymore) and the Alesis Q25 ( link ). The Alesis won't even show up when I r...
