Zyn-Fusion LV2 3.0.3

Postby windowsrefund » Sun Aug 12, 2018 7:24 am

Hello,

Compiled MusE again from upstream about an hour ago and then took the plunge and compiled the updated UI for ZynAddSubFX called "Zyn-Fusion". Instructions for doing so: https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusion-build/wiki/Building-on-Linux

The only zynaddsubfx binary on my system is a result of the compile mentioned above.

Code: Select all

$ which zynaddsubfx
/usr/bin/zynaddsubfx
$ ls -l /usr/bin/zynaddsubfx
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Aug 12 02:44 /usr/bin/zynaddsubfx -> /opt/zyn-fusion/zynaddsubfx
$ /opt/zyn-fusion/zynaddsubfx -v

This program is free software (GNU GPL v2 or later) and
it comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.

Version: 3.0.3


The binary runs and I'm staring at this new (gorgeous) UI. However, I'm unable to use it from within MusE? For starters, when I attempt to add the synth, I see 2 "ZynAddSubFX LV2" entries. Clicking either entry does load the LV2 but I see different results when I attempt to "show native gui". For the first entry, the legacy UI is displayed. At this point, this is probably a good thing (for me) since it means I can continue to work. If I attempt to show the UI for the track loaded with the newer lv2 plugin (the 2nd entry), MusE just crashes.

I also took a look inside Settings -> MIDI Ports / Soft Synths

I see the following entries (I am only listing synths here and not the related effects that ship with it)

File Type Inst Name Version
ZynAddSubFX Native VST(synths) 0 ZynAddSubFX 3.0.3
carla LV2 (synths) 1 ZynAddSubFX LV2
ZynAddSubFX LV2 (synths) 0 ZynAddSubFX LV2

Given the last 2 have no version information, I'm going to assume the entries relate to the older UI. If this issue gets worked out with 3.0.3, I'd find myself wondering how to remove the entries which relate to the older version. In the meantime, I'll obviously be working with the older UI and even experimenting with loading 3.0.3 into Carla. Let's see what happens...

If you have time to post time to post backtraces of the crash and other debugging info to https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusion-issues/issues it would be appreciated.

I know that Zyn (the official) LV2 does run here which I guess is the old GUI.

Have you tried the new Zyn in Ardour and QTractor first? Always try them first.

I actually used (old) Zyn LV2 as a test case since MusE had problems
opening it before I made some fixes. Now it works pretty good.
I will have to try the new Zyn!

Busy at the moment, can't test...

Zyn-Fusion is just a new UI for the synth. It's actually an enormous improvement in terms of usability and the search bar even works. Attempts at searching in the old UI always results in a crash. I'll be sure to file that bug as requested on the Zyn-Fusion side in the next day or so.
