Zyn-fusion MIDI channel selection

Postby xaccrocheur » Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:54 am

Hi Everyone!

After like a two years long break (for various and equally grim reasons) I'm putting my studio back together. I guess I got the blues again.

But ZynAddSubFx is behaving strangely. First, it's now dressed up in "Fusion" GUI, whether I invoke the LV2 or the VST plugin flavor ; Is it something I did before, or is it now the distribution (I install it from the KXStudios repos) norm? Anyway:

The MIDI channel has stopped working like it did: Now, whenever I select another MIDI channel than the default (01) one, the whole synth stops working :? No internal KB, no MIDI input, nothing. I can see the MIDI signal entering the Qtractor (0.9.4) master MIDI bus, then My track's, but nothing in ZASFX. Only if I switch back to 01, will the internal KB work again, and the synth make any sound.

This completely breaks all my project files :(

kxstudio does package the fusion version now since it has been open-sourced.

Does that also break with the standalone zynthian? I unfortunately can't really test it here at work.
p.s. sorry to hear of your rough times, but certainly glad you are back!

talked to fundamental and it sounds like the internal keyboard only sends midi channel 1 so when you change the engine its not surprising that it doesn't work. Not ideal, but at least that explains that part. Not sure about the rest.

I just checked on my laptop and the virtual keyboard in the fusion UI is only sending to MIDI channel 1, but at least in standalone operation synthesis happens from the right MIDI channels (testing with parts 1/2 and MIDI channels 1/2). If you're having issues with zyn responding to MIDI events, that's a pretty noteworthy bug, so could you clarify the steps needed to replicate the issue?

Thank you for your help!

I can try ;

- Open Qtractor, create a midi track.
- Add ZASFX as a plugin... Wait.

I'm confused, now it works ; see, my ZASFX instances were after other plugins (most notably a Reverb bus insert and a x-42 EQ10) and apparently that's why they didn't respond. When I move ZASFX up the plugin chain, it works, responding to the correct MIDI channel. Please excuse the noise :oops:

No problem. The issue about the builtin keyboard is/will be tracked via https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusi ... /issues/53 .
