Re: Recording the SPDIF input of M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card in Audacity, how?

I just noticed that if I set Audacity to record 12 tracks (instead of 'stereo') it will record the SPDIF input on tracks 9 and 10 and on tracks 11 and 12. So it seems I have to record all 12 virtual tracks of the M-Audio 2496 and then just delete all empty unwanted tracks? Is there no way with Audac...

Recording the SPDIF input of M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card in Audacity, how?

I have a M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI audio card that has a SPDIF coax input. When I use 'arecord' on the command line I can record from the SPDIF input of the M2496 without any problems using the following command: arecord -D iec958:CARD=M2496,DEV=0 -c 2 -r44100 -f S32_LE xyz.wav This means my hardw...

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Here is a brief overview video of the JDXi Manager (Windows version, but as mentioned earlier, the Linux version is practically identical except for slight font differences):

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Ok, got it thanks, now I just have to find the time to do a kernel rebuild (haven't done it in a long time, last time was 6 or 7 years ago :) ).

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Try my attached patch Thanks. I guess this is a kernel patch? For which kernel version is it? Is this patch for USB Audio when the JD-Xi is set to Vendor mode? Note: The JD-Xi will only work if the first Midi In is opened by the computer. I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say with that. :?

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Ok, you are right, it would be easier for you if I was providing deb packages for the Linux version, but I have no idea how to make a deb package and no time to learn it. I could make a rpm package as I know how to do those but then I would have to do many of them for all the different rpm based dis...

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Yes, that's the usage I would hope for. Maybe such a task would be a good 'summer of code' entry? I doubt it would qualify for the 'summer of code' as I'm not using a FOSS license, but as I said in the first post: patches are welcome. I installed the windows version of the editor by wine, and must ...

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

E.g. Knob A on the midi controller send CC 20 to the editor which converts it to lets say the sysex string for the cutoff of the JD-Xi. Yes, that's something theoretically possible, but it would require my editor to constantly listen for MIDI IN messages which it doesn't do as it currently has no n...

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

I think I still don't understand you correctly as I don't see how MIIDI-learn on my editor could help you use a keyboard controller with the JD-Xi. :? Surely if you want to program your keyboard controller so that it controls the JD-Xi, then it's your keyboard controller that needs to have MIDI-learn?

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

The JD-Xi does not have MIDI-learn (synths don't normally have MIDI-learn, only controllers have this) but all of its knobs do send CC or NRPN so you can use the JD-Xi to control soft-synths providing the soft-synths allow you to assign CC/NRPN to their parameters. The other way round works to, you ...

Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager- a Roland JD-Xi Editor

This could fill a lot of gaps in a linux based studio. Yes it does and I prefer hardware synths rather than software synths anyway as they do not require cpu power on the PC and latency is a not an issue. How is the midi-learn and midi in/out, send/receive functions? I'm not sure what you mean by '...
