VirtualBox iOS guest

Post by 1234 »


the Synth One open-source project, unfortunately not available for Linux, runs fine installed to an iOS 12.2 VirtualBox guest. Audio out works and is available for usage by the Linux host.

Code: Select all

[weremouse@moonstudio ~]$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-amd64:core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-noarch:security-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-amd64:security9.20160110ubuntu0.2-noarch
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS
Release:	16.04
Codename:	xenial
MIDI in for the Linux host works without issues, whatever MIDI hardware input I chose.

Code: Select all

[weremouse@moonstudio ~]$ amidi -l
Dir Device    Name
IO  hw:0,0    HDSPMx579bcc MIDI 1
IO  hw:1,0    TerraTec EWX24/96 MIDI
IO  hw:4,0,0  Scarlett 18i20 USB MIDI 1
However, MIDI in isn't available for the VirtualBox guest.

Any ideas?

As a workaround I record MIDI tracks with Ardour running on the Linux host, export the MIDI files and import them by Auria Pro or Cubasis running on the iOS guest. IOW MIDI within the VirtualBox iOS guest works without issues.
