Thanks, that's quite a response, too high even for my qualifications amounting to mouse-clickingh and little else but I managed.
I looked at the command that the icon on my desktop sends and this was "zynaddsubfx -I jack -O jack" which I edited to just "zynaddsubfx -a" This did the job, wonder why it got changed as it used to work fine before? Then I looked at the defalult buffer sizes and qsynth has only 64 while Zyn has 256. This I'm not sure what to make of. I do have some cutout now and then (working with typically 12-28 track rosegarden files), so I'm increasing the qsynth to 256 also and I'll see what comes loose :-) Thanks again for your help On Thu, 15 Aug 2019 00:38:58 -0400 Ted Felix <t...@tedfelix.com> wrote: > On 8/14/19 5:23 PM, krsg...@trixtar.org wrote: > > Regardless of whether the standalone Zynaddsubfx (not the dssi) gets > > connected in qjackctl manually or automatically. a usable channel for it no > > longer shows up in the Rosegarden 'Manage Midi Devices' window > > midi-channels list.
