It's available in a Java version now. Pretty cool. :)

I don't know how to connect this to a soft synth either :(
MIDI output options are MIDI hardware, gervill and "realtime midi sequencer". Is it possible to bridge the latter to an alsa MIDI or a jack MIDI port?

Cheers, Pablo

you need virmidi (virtual midi device) to use it with jack (google is my friend :wink: ).
A simple

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe snd-virmidi
will do the trick.
It is a kernel module not loaded by default.
I know there is some way to add it on boot so you don't have to run the command on each boot.

sudo modprobe snd-virmidi

Yes! Good tip, thanks!

The window opens but it is empty for ages, to the point that I was xkilling it with impatiente, but then it works!

virmidi is a kernel module. If it doesn't show up then you have to get a kernel that have it.
Mine is :

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:24 UTC 2011 x86_64

Good luck !

Hey, I quickly gave it a try yesterday (and yes, you need snd-virmidi).
I use this kernel on my debian sid box: linux-image-2.6.39-1-686-pae
and snd-virmidi was there OOB.

The app works fine and is quite interesting. The only drawback I could see was that the MIDI device menu item window is way too narrow. If device names are long, you have some hard time to guess which want you have picked. The window cannot be re-sized to fit the longest name.

I have not looked whether the app can allow you to sequence the patterns. Did someone try to dig this app a little deeper ?

On the contrary Rui, your comments are always welcome. My knowledge on the history of computer music is rather poor, but now a bit less poor. Thank you!
