[Rosegarden-user] metronome question

2013-02-24 Thread Stefan Thomas
Dear community,
I'm using rosegarden, version 12.04.
I have the following question:
Is it possible, during a recording, to let the metronome 2 bars count,
before the recording starts?
I've been searching for this option, but I didn't find it!

 There is one residual pissoff issue withit it though and that has to do with
 jack connections I think. A lot depends on the shutdown sequence, I ususally
 disconnect all in qjackctl and then shut down the apps in the group. If I mess
 this part up, or every time some of them just crash, then a real mess ensues
 requiring at a minimum a KDE reset, sometimes SEVERAL complete reboots on az
 Asus Crosshair-IV system with two onboard sound devices. KDE seems to be
 screwed up as to which can or cannot be used until it gets sorted out after
 several reboots.

I'm not familiar with the quirks of various distros (I've been with Slackware
for quite a while now), but the problem you describe sounds like it might be
the work of udev.  udev works at bootup to dynamically assign names to
various interfaces as the kernel discovers them.  The problem is that multiple
interfaces of the same type are not always discovered in the same sequence and
can end up with different names each time the machine boots.  Naturally this
breaks any setup that requires some sort of naming consistency.  Although I've
never had more than one sound interface, I have experienced much grief with
multiple ethernet cards and cdroms.

udev has a rules file (usually somewhere in /etc) where it allegedly supports
persistent rules, designed to circumvent this sort of nonsense.  But
persistent rules are of little value when udev can simply replace them (on my
system at least).  The only way I found to achieve a stable setup was to write
one final udev rule that fires a script that overwrites the new persistent rules
that udev has likely just written.

With any luck you will find a distro that doesn't exhibit this behavior.

Neither did I. I start recording some bars before.

But it should be possible!
As far as I remember, it has been possible in one of the earlier versions.

Yes this is possible. You can find it in the menu:

Edit - Preferences - Number of count-in measures before reccording

I never quite understood why this option can't be set from

Studio - Manage metronome

where I would expect to find it.

  I tried MusiX-2 and it was the first time I could get Rosegarden to

  spoiled I have a hard time doing what I want in any Debian-based
  system so I keep it as a stby.
 
 Hmm, haven't had problems making Debian do what I want. Haven't looked 
 at SuSE for ages.

If you saw the stuff I have set up you'd understand but it's not 
an RG topic so I won't go into it here in detail. As one example 
I have 300 or so custom scripts to mount/unmount partitions on 
dedicated mountpoints, start windows by first of all copying-in 
from a sterile archive, start-stop apache etc. etc. etc. all of 
these are in a nested dropdown menu in the panel just one click 
away :-)

I've spoiled myself rotten, Suse is no screaming hell MM-wise but 
I am for the time being on the hook

I added a note to the README, finally.

I have the same problem myself, incidentally, and had to go through the 
same pain you did.  Ubuntu sent us a patch once upon a time that was 
supposed to fix this issue, but it doesn't actually work for me.

There is probably a really nice, complete, helpful solution to the whole 
issue, but since I don't have the knowledge to offer it or the time to 
acquire that knowledge, I settled for dropping some hints in the README.

Better than nothing.  Maybe it can save the next guy some time.  Thanks 
for bringing this to our attention, and sorry I took so long to get 
around to responding to you.
