mixer for jack - mididings not working anymore

Post by didgewind »

Hi there, I've been using non-mixer and mididings to map my midi control to osc for a while, but since upgrading my ubuntu distribution to 18.04 mididings stopped working :(. I cannot find another way to control non-mixer from a midi controller (jm2cv is not compiling in my system) and cannot find another decent mixer for jack.

Any help with this? (with mididings returning to work or a good mixer for jack that I can control with midi)?

Thanks in advance!

yep,

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mididings", line 18, in <module>
    import mididings
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mididings/__init__.py", line 13, in <module>
    from mididings.setup import config, hook
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mididings/setup.py", line 13, in <module>
    import _mididings
ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (init_mididings)
It's a known error, confirmed but still unasigned from Ubuntu team.
I think it's related to a phyton update.

Seems to be related to python version.

I would install it from sources, and include this fix: https://github.com/dsacre/mididings/com ... 2d6538db19
