Re: Alesis V-Series Editor

Excellent piece of work! Thanks for continuing it.

Works fine on my VMini. "Load from device" opens a whole new window each time which is a little unexpected. I'm not sure if that was intentional.

Re: Alesis V-Series Editor

Glad you're finding it helpful. The original author states that it was designed to be extended to incorporate other models but it wasn't obvious to me how to do that so I just retrofitted the original for my mini. I was fortunate I had a windows vm I could snoop on the usb with. Unfortunately the or...

Ctrlr

Has anyone got this to compile recently? I'm trying to build tag 5.4 on Fedora 27 and I'm having no luck.

If I try the precompiled version it steadfastly refuses to show any menus.


This is my build output

Re: Jack Interface Numbering?

I don't know how to do it with Ardour but using qjackctl you can use regular expressions in the patchbay definitions. Edit your plug so it's 'midi_capture_.*'

Re: Why Do You Write Your Own Music?

Wait... You don't have to write your own music? How did I not know this? Oh thank goodness! I'm free! I'm going to dedicate my life to only playing scales while using every different setting on my synths and plugins. True undiluted expression!

Open Source and the new Korg Prologue

Korg announced the new Prologue this week. They have an user definable oscillator feature which is described as
a open-source mode in which you can build your own user oscillator. Stock, it defaults to a morphing wavetable


Bravo Korg.

Re: Audacity and Jack -- reliable patchbay connection??

I had a go with this today, This worked for me, I tested up to the pair 'out_108' & 'out_109'. out_.*[02468]$ out_.*[13579]$ I'm pretty sure preceding the regex with 'd' is meaningless. '*' means "zero or more of the previous character" so it matches '', 'd', 'dd' and 'ddddddddddddd'. ...

Re: Recording my Roland TD-11 drums in Linux Mint 18.2

If you have a go with Audacity you’ll probably be able to record the drums. The TD-11 usb audio won’t come out of the computer speakers if the computer is sending it’s output to the TD-11. The TD-11 will appear as a sound card to pulse and alsa. Try using alsamixer to see if there is a loop back mod...

Alesis V-Series Editor

If you have an Alesis V-Series (I got a VMini at Christmas) you'll be aware that the editor app for changing the pads, knobs and buttons is Windows or Mac Only. Some clever person reverse engineered the V-25 https://github.com/le1ca/alesisvsysex and I then fudged their code around to make it work wi...

Re: Electronic Percussion samples

Well, there's a couple of things going on here, the first is samples, you can get drum samples from all sorts of places, freesound & loopmaster would be a good place to start.

As for a good plugin to play them with, I use Fabla http://openavproductions.com/fabla/

Re: Make "Active Topics" available in "Quick links" for unlogged in users

And then i ask, why should i give if i won't get back? Have you ever read a book? Did you need to write a book to balance the fact you had read one? When you perform music do you only perform for musicians who are performing at the same time as you? I understand your need but I think you may need t...

Re: Make "Active Topics" available in "Quick links" for unlogged in users

A "Social Media Platform" purports to be a place that encourages community but actually is only really interested in gaining the largest amount of reach to advertisers who fund it. I agree that the word 'Social' is in there but in the context of 'Social Media Platform' it counts very littl...

I'm running F27 and qjackctl still launches a2j for me.

Re: Make "Active Topics" available in "Quick links" for unlogged in users

This is a community, not a social media platform. It matters not if there were 7, 70, 700 or 70,000 active users, it's not about the numbers, it's about the exchange of knowledge and the relationships forged. I'd rather have a community of 2 contributing value than a gang of 79 typing nonsense.
