There's probably a 'proper' way to do this, but I just close Rosegarden, then
move all the files into the dsame directory as the .rg file. Next time you open
it seems to find them OK, and also then saves any future files there.

Thanks for looking after Rosegarden for all this time, Michael. It's greatly
appeciated in the 'folderol' zone!

Just to add a little perspective, I just checked, and there are over 230
Rosegarden projects in my DAW, most of which I created while you were at the
helm.

So, just cos you're stepping back, don't be a stranger :)

Congratulations on this release. It's very easy to fail to realise just how

Are you able to compile the software yourself?
If so both rosegarden and Yoshimi have been *much* changed and improved over
the last 18 months or so.

Personally I'd be rather unhappy if that was done. I've got about 40 files with
mixed audio and MIDI tracks.

Just the ability to playback an audio track at the same time as recording MIDI
is incredibly useful

I thought I'd see if I could work anything out myself, but after 3-4 hours of
looking over the code, I still didn't have any idea how all the bits link
together :(

Once again, I'm hoping to run a workshop at this year's LAC, and using
Rosegarden for demo work is *much* easier for me than any of the alternatives.
I would very much like to get through an entire session without any Xruns at
all - adds a touch of class.

Is it possible to discover who wrote the original code, and maybe gently tweak
their nose? Failing that, are there any other devs who might take a look at it?

Very many moons ago we had the same problem with Yoshimi, which turned out to
be two threads not being propperly joined when exiting, so maybe this is a
similar issue.

[Rosegarden-user] Something completely different

2017-01-02 Thread Abrolag
Last year a fellow soundcloud musician, RustyStringz, sent me an audio track of
himself singing and playing guitar. He asked if I'd like to add anything to it.
Well it wasn't until the Christmas break I actually had time to sit down an try
to get into the 'zone'.

Eventually things came together and here is a link to the final recording.

https://soundcloud.com/soft-sounds/scarborough-fair-feat-rustysrtingz

I loaded the audio into Rosegarden, then played against that going from
keyboard to Rosegarden as MIDI and from there to Yoshimi building up a total of
4 MIDI tracks.

The actual recording was made in one pass with Rosegarden's audio and Yoshimi
being fed to Timemachine (a nice lightweight recorder). Final top-n-tail was
done in Audacity.

How are you loading these files?
Are you using the 'Open' command or the 'Import' one?

If you are trying to directly open them you may do better if you start with the
default studio then import the midi file.

It is a long time since I've handled midi files, as I always work directly with
Rosegarden so can't really offer much more help.

Why not just change the ports to the ones you want then re-save as a Rosegarden
file. They will then be remembered.

I can't see it being an ALSA issue if the soundcard timer works OK.

A quick search online reveals that there have been changes in the kernel
timers, and there may be an outstanding bug.

Personally I'm sticking with 4.6.4 as this is the last one debian supplied
with an RT alternative (and I'm too lazy to recompile it myself).

Agree with Michael. This is almost certainly the timer source. I find the most
reliable (and accurate) is the soundcard one. Look for something like
"PCM playback 0-0-0"

I hadn't thought of it like that. You're probably right.

I can never understand why the convention became that program and channel

How does this behave WRT existing software destinations, and multiple hardware
MIDI I/O ports?

My usual setup is 2 MIDI hardware inputs, 3 hardware outputs (two keyboards and
a sound canvas), and a variable number of software MIDI destinations, some of
which are ALSA only, some are switchable for either ALSA or Jack.

I'm steadily more inclined to think a time based solution would be most
reliable. If the time entry is always being updated by the instance holding the
lock (even if it's only on an hourly basis) anything more than a couple of
hours old must be an ophaned one.

The only time I can foresee a problem is if files on a single server are being
access by machines set to wildly different times, but if that was the case I
would expect the users to have a lot of other time based problems!

I'm back :)
The bad news is that this time next week I'll be down one wisdom tooth :(

NEway

Quite correct, but maybe I should make more fuss about yoshimi's "doc"
directory. There's a very detailed explanation of the root/bank/instrument
structure there in a text file called banks.txt :)

In short, Rosegarden is probably best off ignoring root and bank IDs, and using
just the installed location, simply taking the bank directory names. The
Instrument IDs however are an integral part of the filename so must be included.

The clever thing about the way this is structured is that adding new roots or
banks will never change the IDs of the existing ones (unless you lose
your .config/yoshimi/yoshimi.banks file somehow) and that is aimed purely at
those wanting to make bank and program changes via MIDI.

Also, the user can reorder roots and banks with new IDs without modifying
the directories/files themselves.

However, I have no intention of increasing the number of default banks so they
shouldn't change anyway.

Now I don't know if all that makes things simpler or more complicated.

The default installed set are in /usr{/local}/share/yoshimi/banks and are normal
directories of banks with instrument files in them. All the instrument files
have a 4 digit number prefix.

Now I must go, I'm supposed to be several miles away in an hours time!

Rascal indeed!

Actually, both my Mk1 Roland Soundcanvas and my Yamaha SY35 *do* remember
settings. They don't have MIDI controllable banks, but both remember last per
channel programs, volume & pan.

However, I mostly use Yoshimi these days, and 'state' on that preserves
*everything* including master volume, detune and scales.

I usually just load patch sets though, which are lighter weight but still have
all programs, volume, pan, brightness and part key shift. So that's my starting
point for a partly completed project.

When starting from scratch I will tend to use Rosegarden's controls to make
initial settings, and Yoshimi's for key shift and programs. As soon as I have
more than 3 or 4 tracks started I'll save Yoshimi's current patch set.

This is where the problems start.

On the next startup, if I start Yoshimi first, Rosegarden connects and resets
most of the controls to (now) wrong values. Changing bank root was a particular
problem (now pretty much resolved) because it then meant Yoshimi was pointing to
completely the wrong patches.

If instead I start up Rosegarden first, it doesn't see Yoshimi, so I have to
manually reconnect it. Now that last would seem to be the least problematical
way to start, but I quite often like to start Yoshimi by itself. It will then
automatically look for and connect to my keyboard, so  I can just pootle* about
for while and if inspiration strikes, start up Rosegarden and record.

Now I have no idea at all how typical that is (is there such a thing), but to
get things in perspective, I will say Rosegarden is much closer than any of the
other sequencers I've used. Without naming names, one of the LV2 ones is
particularly frustrating. It correctly does a complete state load... then
resets all the controllers to their 'defaults' :(

* "pootle" an arcane term used and understood only by the select few level 9
synthologists.

Decided to have a look at this and I can't find any such check boxes - prolly
means I'm looking in the wrong place.

My take on this is that we should have the choice of being able to stop
Rosegarden doing *any* initialising of the destination synth(s) but still pass
through any MIDI messages embedded in a file, or sent from and external source.

Now I appreciate that some older devices may start up in an undefined state but
no modern ones should, so I wonder if a per device initialise checkbox should be
placed in Manage Midi Devices -> Midi Outputs.

If checked, then Banks, Program, CCs all would be sent at startup to just that
device, otherwise only messages as above.

As for the existing controls would it be practical to make them still operate,
but actually embed the appropriate CCs in a running file? Or is that over the
top?

There is a sneaky way you can get effective looping of complete bars.

Once you've got the section you want to loop in place, highlight just that
segment and switch on repeat. Where you want the loop to stop, insert another
segment. An 'empty' segment will simply stop the loop, but if you highlight
that segment and switch on repeat, away you go again with just the new segment.

Put segments on different tracks and you can give them different loop times :)

All behaved exactly as I wanted with changes only being made by the specific

At a guess, maybe they are using different timing sources.

You can also select and jog all the notes in a segment without changing the
segment's overall position - very useful for latency correction.

[Rosegarden-user] Bug or feature?

2016-03-26 Thread Abrolag
I suspect the former :(

The way to demonstrate it is:

Start a segment on (say) track one, record a bit then stop.
Go into the Event List Editor and put in a volume change near the start.
Start another segment on the same track after the end of the first one and
record on that.

Playback, without stopping, through a synth that shows volume levels.

You'll see the correct change in the first segment, but the second one will jump
to the track's default value. This applies to things like panning too.


This seems quite wrong to me, and caused me a lot of trouble until I had a
track with changes that were big enough for me to notice the fader move
significantly.

Just read through that. It seems quite clear to me. Ultimately people will have
to play around with the controls to get a feel for them, but - knowing what I
wanted - I found I could get there pretty quickly.

Oh course, the downside is that I have now run out of excuses for lack of

Just poking my nose in here :)

Velocity can really catch you out. A good synth will change the timbre as
well as the volume depending on key velocity.

You can still get very good results if you point Rosegarden's timer to your
soundcard, which *will* be a high resolution time source.

To be fair, Zyn does now understand program changes, but *only* for parts that
have been previously enabled.

However, their management of bank changes is not MIDI standard.

At the risk of bringing down the wrath of (many) gods on my head. Yoshimi gets
that bit completely right - it may have a different set of wrong 'uns :)

I remember we had this same issue with Yoshimi at one time so went to

Well this has proved rather interesting.

Yoshimi is now immune to this issue. We found one thing we had not done but
aught to have done, and one that we had done but aught not to have :)

We also found an unrelated bug that goes back many years - before Yoshi was
forked from Zyn!

Having said that, why does Rosegarden want to set all channel bank MSBs to 0
*except* 10 which it sets to 1?

Also, is there any chance of someone having the time to apply the thinning
shears to all those duplicate commands?

Ho hum, just had a request for a change. It makes a lot of sense but...

I've just discovered that a long lost feature in the matrix editor is back.
Wooo!

You can again select groups of notes and with the velocity editor open, drag
their levels up and down as a block :)

Added to this, if you select a note you can then drag it up and down even if it
is lower than the others (it used to jump to another overlapping one).

To me this is a dramatic improvement.

Would you please shout about these things more :)

Sorry I was so abrupt Ted - I really need to go and have a cup of coffee or

I take your points on the others, but in this case, where do you draw the line?
When the MIDI spec was written program changes were just a ROM pointer change,
and couldn't possibly be less than a millisecond apart.

Still, we've improved the situation for Yoshimi even in this extreme case and
no doubt will improve it further.


Will.

[Rosegarden-user] Yoshimi and Rosegarden - fun times.

2015-11-10 Thread Abrolag
Yoshimi can have up to 64 parts. By default these are wraped around the normal
MIDI channels, so 1, 17, 33 & 49 all respond to channel 1 messages. This was
originally implemented for Vector Control, working with up to four sounds on a
channel (similar to the Yamaha SY hardware series).

However, these have other less obvious uses. One of these is getting far more
than 16 completely independent tracks addressed by just the 16 channels. Most
tunes run with instruments having a relatively narrow pitch range, and this is
what we can make use of.

As an example, in Yoshimi's main window select 64 parts, then on part 1 set
(say) Steel Bass and maximum note as 52 (E).

Next select part 17 and enable it (easiest to use the mixer panel for this) set
Tunnel Piano, the *minimum* note as 53 and maximum as 71 (B).

Finally, enable part 33, set Rushes and set it's minimum note as 72, but key
shift down an octave.

With a 61 note keyboard that gives you quite a useful working range, on just
one channel.

However, the idea really comes into its own with a sequencer like Rosegarden
where you can record multiple parts over the full MIDI range and track them to
the same channel. Also, in Rosegarden the parts can be separately named, and
identified as Bass and Treble in the notation editor. This makes it very
convenient for those wanting a more formal musical layout.

So, with very little effort you can now have 48 tracks playing at once!

Ummm, you do need a decent processor though :)

Yes, I know you could run more instances of Yoshimi on different MIDI ports, but
where's the fun in that?

[Rosegarden-user] Bank change - again :(

2015-07-08 Thread Abrolag
Rosegarden is still making a mess of this on loading a standard MIDI file.

Please don't try to interpret these. If you get a CC, *any* CC just bung it out
*exactly* as you found it.

I send 0-9 followed by 32-105

I get 0-9, 32-9

Later I send 32-110 by itself
I get 32-255

Later still I send 32-105 again

I get 32-255

WTF!!!

While I'm in rant mode, is there any way to permanently disable that 'auto'

If you can attach a small midi file with just a couple of bank

Yes. It's MIDI import and/or starting Rosegarden by calling up a midi file with
the desktops file manager.

  Hi Ted (that was quick!)
 
Saturday morning is Rosegarden morning.
 
  No, it's on fixed. I always use that, in fact I have that as my default

  for all channels.
 
Hmmm.  Is this a Reset All Controllers (121) message?  I've found 
 that in a couple of places in the code.  It appears as the following 
 constants:
 
MIDI_CONTROLLER_RESET
controllerAllControllersOff
 
 But those only appear in two places:
 
ChannelManager::setControllers()
  - This routine isn't called for me at startup or file load.
AlsaDriver::processEventsOut()
  - Only sent when we do a panic event.
 
 ...so I'm not sure where this is coming from.
 
Unfortunately, kmidimon is useless at rg startup and file load, so 
 that makes it even harder to observe this.  I'll see if I can do some 
 strategic RG_DEBUG-ing.
 
In the meantime, if we can hammer out a simple test case, that would 
 be a big help.
 
Just using rg normally, I don't see anything like what you are 
 describing when I use fluidsynth.  fluidsynth gets the proper volume 
 setting every time I launch rg or load a composition.
 
So, if you just create a simple one bar composition with a few notes 
 and an obviously non-default volume setting for that track (e.g. 
 something really low like 10), you can reproduce this every time?  Just 
 bring down rg, relaunch, load the test composition, and the volume isn't 
 correct?

Sometimes I think computers hate me :(

I tried that and everything worked perfectly :?

Tried one of my 'normal' files and that had no problems either, and another and
another...

...and... wait! Bingo set and instantly reset!


Next, I did something I should have tried a long time ago - complied a version
of Yoshimi that would ignore the reset command. Guess what? Errant file *still*
did it's little dance. So, sorry for the false info, but now what on earth
could be in the file that does this (I eventually found it in several others
too).

It can't be anything in the normal track data as these all start at the second
bar, and this wierdo happens as you *load* the file.

{snoooze}

Ha! Got the little bugger! :) :) :)

All the affected parts have an 'orphan' MIDI output in Manage MIDI Devices. The
device they were connected to no longer exists - indeed it no longer does in
real life!

What happens then is they lock on to the only available one - Yoshimi. From
here on I'm surmising that they send settings from phantom tracks. In any case
if I set them to [no port] and resave the file, next time it loads there is no
problem.

My guess is that this was originally done to ensure there was always something
connected. I wonder if anyone else has been victimised by this version of the
law of unintended consequences :o

[Rosegarden-user] An oddity!

2015-06-13 Thread Abrolag
At startup, and when loading new files, Rosegarden sends a 'reset all' message.
Is there any way to stop this?

The particular scenario that had me puzzled for a while is as follows:

I have a Yoshimi file with a set of voice parameters and a Rosegarden one with
a complete song project

I load up Yoshimi and open its mixer panel. The instruments are there but all
the volume and pan setting are the defaults.

I load up Rosegarden and see all the sliders move to the positions as set by
Rosegarden, but then instantly revert to the defaults!

If I run exactly the same files on a different (older) architecture the setting
are correct.

Has the order of these setting in Rosegarden changed at some point or possibly,
are they so close together that some timing issue in the machine can swap them
over?

My workaound at the moment is to duplicate the controls at the start of each
track (I always start at bar 2 to give me some wiggle room).

It looks like ChannelManager::setControllers() might be the one doing 
 this.  Are you using the auto channel feature?  This appears in the 
 Channel field in the Instrument Parameters box for each instrument. 
 If so, try setting the channel to fixed (for each track/instrument) 
 and see if that clears it up.
 
If you need the auto channel feature and the above clears the problem 
 up, then this might be an auto channel bug.

No, it's on fixed. I always use that, in fact I have that as my default studio

stephen stevecook172...@yahoo.co.uk wrote:

 Hello Folks. Steve Cook here:
 
 I am currently running Ubuntu Studio and need some help with adjusting a 
 midi/audio setup that involves the use of QJackCTL, Qsynth, VMPK and 
 Rosegarden.
 
 My current setup is as follows:
 
 http://i958.photobucket.com/albums/ae67/stevecook172001/current-rosegarden-setup_zpswhmrjbx5.jpg
 
 All of the above components are connected together using QJackCTL. The 
 way they work is: a midi tune is loaded into rosegarden and played. The 
 midi signals are first sent to VMPK, which displays which notes are 
 being pressed as the tune progresses. However, VMPK also passes these 
 midi signals through to Qsynth, Which, in turn, passes them to the 
 system speakers. Thus, the tune is heard throuigh the system speakers in 
 correct time with the keys that are being depressed in VMPk. Meanwhile, 
 I also have my real world external midi keyboard controller attached to 
 VMPK via Qjackctl. This allows me to press the keys on my controller and 
 have these key depressions appear on VMPK as well as have them also 
 passed onto Qsynth and then onto the system speakers. This means I can 
 simply follow what I am seeing on VMPK, in terms of input from 
 Rosegarden, on my midi controller. If I press the same keys on my midi 
 controller as are initially being pumped to VMPK from Rosegarden, the 
 midi song will sound in tune. If I do not, then it will sound out of 
 tune and I will be able to immediately auditorily (as well as visually) 
 recognize that. In short, then, this system allows me to learn a tune by 
 seeing and copying instead of having to read music.
 
 I have made a video of the above setup on You-Tube for a fellow user on 
 another forum. So, it might help to more easily understand my setup by 
 viewing it:
 
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRpDbe5hQJE (I am running Ubuntu Mate 
 over the top of Ubuntu Studio in this video, just in case you were 
 wondering).
 
 Okay, having explained all of the above, I now need to explain what am 
 trying to do with it in terms of extending it's functionality. My 
 proposed setup is:
 
 http://i958.photobucket.com/albums/ae67/stevecook172001/propposed-rosegarden-setup_zpsco8rvbpf.jpg
 
 I know, diagrammatically, how to setup the proposed arrangement, above. 
 What I don’t know is how to tell Rosegarden this is where I want the two 
 different tracks to go. Tthat is to say, the two different instruments 
 in the midi file are represented as two separate tracks in Rosegarden. 
 At the moment (with my existing setup), if I send the signal out from 
 Rosegarden to a single instance of VMPK, VMPK only picks up the first 
 track and ignores all others. I currently get round that by merging all 
 tracks in Rosegarden into a single track and then sending that to a 
 single instance of VMPK and this works fine. However, what I want to do 
 is to keep the tracks separate and send them to two separate VMPK 
 keyboards simultaneously, as per my second diagram. Is that possible 
 with Rosegarden? I should say, the reason I want to send the two tracks 
 out to separate VMPK's is twofold. Firstly, my two real world midi 
 controllers are 61 keys each and not full 88 keyboard controllers. Thus, 
 some tunes span a sufficient range of keys as to require me to play with 
 my left hand on one keyboard and my right hand on the other. That is to 
 say, I set my left hand controller to start three octaves lower than the 
 right one. Thus, they overlap by two octaves. Between them, though, I 
 get a full 88 key span. The second reason I want to send different 
 tracks to each of the keyboards is because some of the midi tunes I am 
 wanting to learn are for duets between two instruments. And so, my 
 proposed setup would allow me to effectively playback the two 
 instruments simultaneously from Rosegarden to two instances of VMPK.
 
 Rosegarden appears to allow the sending of the midi signal from each 
 track to separate outputs. But I cant get them to work. so I am 
 obviously doing something wrong. I should make it clear, finally, that I 
 do not have a problem with the external midi controllers themselves in 
 that it is perfectly possible for me to connect them both up to two 
 instances of VMPK and have /them/ both play with two separate voices at 
 the same time (in other words, my second diagram, minus Roasegarden). 
 The problem is between Rosegarden and VMPK.
 
 I am guessing this has got something to do with seeting channels for the 
 two tracks inside the midi, but I haven’t a clue how to do that. Or, 
 indeed, if it is actually possible, even in principle, to achieve the 
 above in Rosegarden.
 
 Please help, if you can.


Right click on the Rosegarden channel label and set both of your tracks to CH1
but to the two different destinations. Make sure you have both recognised in

[Rosegarden-user] Long-standing bug :(

2015-05-08 Thread Abrolag
Occasionally Rosegarden develops amnesia and 'forgets' what it is sending MIDI.
The events in the transport window are still showing but nothing is
actually sent. to. Disconnecting and re-connecting makes no difference. The
*only* cure is is to close and restart.

While messing about recently I think I've stumbled on the 'What' but only a
guess at the 'Why'.

When trying out different timers just out of curiosity I noticed that one of
them consistently resulted in more frequent failures. Presumably Rose garden
uses the selected timer to determine when to send messages, so I wonder if it's
losing connection with the timer itself.

Could this also be connected to the (very rare these days) occasions when
everything suddenly speeds up?

 Have looked at your test MIDI and let MidiEvent::print trace it out. 
 Thank you, and also thank whoever created MidiEvent::print years ago.
 
 The one wrong-looking thing I see is that we never erase the msb and lsb
 variables.  Once case MIDI_CTRL_CHANGE has set lsb or msb, case
 MIDI_PROG_CHANGE will consider it set to that value, forever, until case
 MIDI_CTRL_CHANGE sets another value.  We don't aim lsb and msb at a
 specific channel, either, so other channels' MIDI_PROG_CHANGEs could be
 affected.
 
 My suspicion is that remembering lsb,msb after MIDI_PROG_CHANGE confuses
 later MIDI_PROG_CHANGEs that don't have bank controllers, and also we
 probably shouldn't share them between channels.
 
 Does this make sense to you?
 
   Tom Breton (Tehom)
 
 PS: Added a CC to the devel list.  Does this still need to go to RG-user?


Hi Tom.

Here be dragons! :)

I've been wrestling with bank  program changes since my first hardware synth
in 1991 - and I'm still not sure I know what I'm talking about.

However, I still have 3 hardware synths (although seldom used now).

None use both MSB  LSB

One uses MSB, the others use LSB

The two that use LSB actually send both (zero for MSB). The other one only
sends MSB

All send a program change whenever they send a bank change.

None want a bank change when *getting* a program change they remember their last
bank setting (including over a power cycle).

One of them, QS300, can accept a program change 'silently' to a non-sounding
channel which will then pick up cleanly on the next note, but if you send a bank
change as well the entire sound cuts out.

They all only transmit on one channel, but will accept MIDI on all 16. Bank
is applied to all channels whichever channel it's sent on. Program is channel
specific. This makes sense as bank changes are swapping out ROM sets, program
changes just select a voice within the ROM.

My most recent one is mid 1990s so things have probably changed considerably
since then. I would expect them to be even more flexible. You can probably do
silent bank changes now. As far as I know there are still none that use both
MSB  LSB though! There is *no* sensible plan as to what bank numbers are used.
1,2,3,4,5... forget it!

With all of this I think the only safe thing for Rosegarden to do is to pass on
exactly what it gets without trying to make any interpretation. How it wants
to represent banks for display purposes is really up to you, but currently it
changes them (seemingly just LSB) and I think that is quite wrong.

Since working on Yoshimi, I've developed an even more keen interest in this and
in order to try and keep up, our bank changes can be set to receive either MSB
or LSB, and work across all channels but have no effect at all until there is a
(channel specific) program change. As there is no physical ROM the synth
engine only knows about voice patches currently in memory. We effectively have
an equivalent to an alternate MSB or LSB as we have a control that sets the
entire directory structure that banks are read from (also silently). The test
file checks that all these work including trapping  invalid bank and program
changes. You'll notice there are changes on one channel while others have
continuous notes.

I would guess that most soft-synths would work in pretty much the same way if
they accept MID controls.

P.S.
I'm not on the developers list just the users one. If this is getting too
involved for users I guess I could subscribe, but I'd actually rather stay as I
am :)

P.P.S.

As a matter of interest, I've attached the most complete MIDI chart V2 I can
find. It's actually a merge of several!

I just had a nose around in MidiFile.cpp - without full hazmat too :)

At line 1221 you have the start of a section that interprets bank changes. This
is very risky as almost every synth maker has a different way of handling them.

Commenting out both the msb and lsb code appears to cure the problem.

Can someone more knowledgeable have a look and see what other implications there
may be?

If I disable response to banks and program change, then I can't embed the CCs I

 Sounds like the normal setup stuff.
 
 Have you tried unchecking all the checkboxes in Instrument Parameters? 
 Basically, that tells it not to try to set up an instrument, because setup
 will be handled externally, which sounds like what you are doing.

Yes tried that. It still sends CC 121 (reset all controllers) and it sends it at
the start of every segment of every track!

What is worse is that it then can't reload what it sent. CC 32 bank LSB always
comes back with a value of 0. It is also creating spurious CCs but I can't pin
down whether that is happening on export or reload.

BTW I've also tried using arecordmidi to capture the actual midi stream.

 That is correct.  Synth plugins are one of those things that could have

 experimental stages, and there it sits today.  The DSSI mailing list has

Flavour-of-the-month for plugins seems to be LV2.

The latest version of yoshimi supports it :)

However, I guess it would take a *lot* of work for it to be implemented in
Rosegarden, and it doesn't seem there is anyone to do it :'(

I get the feeling that Rosegarden is getting things out of sequence, and
removing stuff before closing it's jack client (or maybe not waiting lone

Re: [Rosegarden-user] ZASF plugins sorting problem

 I have a collection of about 50 rosegarden projects made under Suse using the 
 last few releases over the last year or two. All of them make very heavy use 
 of ZynAddSubFX sounds pulled directly from that application as a synth in its 
 own right as well as ZASF the Zyn dssi plugin. 
 
 What this means is that I might have a track that is typically assigned to 
 ZASF plugin #176-Guitar. And now is the time when the maestro signals: let it 
 all hit the fan :-)
 
 While tinkering with an upgraded Zyn (2.4.4 i think) package in the 
 Mageia-5alpha2 distro I ran into the problem of a new, much improved AND MUCH 
 BIGGER bank-set. According to the zyn devs. the appropriate way to handle 
 these has historically been alphabetical or else trouble looms ahead when the 
 bank-set is changed  ..and this is exactly what has happened *as far as I can 
 determine* with my at best barely average skills. 
 
 The short of the long is that in my rosegarden projects ZASF plugin 
 #176-Guitar is now #176-Pan-Flute. I do love pan flutes but this is not going 
 to work. For the time being I can just continue using Suse but the Zyn 
 package is sure to be upgraded there as well and very soon at that! Having to 
 re-edit my rosegarden projects would be bad enough but what if yet another 
 bank-set increase comes along, now that Zyn popularity is going ballistic 
 ANYTHING is possible.
 
 For now I can just migrate the old /usr/share/zynaddsubfx/banks folder to any 
 more recent system but in th enear future could I hope for an edit from 
 numerical to alpha sorting please?
 
 Thanks

Bit late picking up on this...

My way of handling this is to maintain different sets of bank root dirs all in
userspace then just select as 'default'  the one I want depending on which group
of projects I'm working on.

Whole desktop including sound.

Now to find the time to actually make a sensible recording :)

[Rosegarden-user] A bit of well earned praise

2014-11-25 Thread Abrolag
As some of you know, I'm now working on developing the Yoshimi softsynth. The
changes that have been made recently meant we had to check MIDI input as
thoroughly as possible. To do this I had to use three other sequencers to try
and cover as many corner cases as possible.

Without mentioning any names, I am highly relieved this is over! What I can say
is that from a musician's point of view Rosegarden is totally in another league
and leaves them all behind in clouds of dust.

In the first place, set-up time (that inspiration killer) is dramatically
shorter with Rosegarden. Track selection and recording is obvious and painless.
Saving and loading is quick. CCs can easily be dropped in and edited (this one
proved to be especially problematic with the others).

Finally, Rosegarden doesn't pretend to know what I want to do better than me!

D. Michael McIntyre rosegarden.trumpe...@gmail.com wrote:

 My computer started flaking out after running like a top for 6-7 years, 
 and I decided to use that as an excuse to replace it.  I bought my first 
 ever off-the shelf, big box retail machine.  The bright side is I put 
 more gigas in my hertz, and I can boot from USB sticks now.
 
 It has a bunch of solder plugs where the PCI slot would have gone. 
 Somebody decided to save $0.39, because nobody uses PCI anymore.
 
 That means the old mAudio Audiophile 24/96 (ice1712/envy24) joins my 
 collection of obsolete and useless soundcards, and I don't presently 
 have any way of getting the audio signal from my computer to my 
 amplifier, as I was using SPDIF.
 
 Taking a quick look around, it appears to be the age of USB audio 
 dongles.  This would be a good time to look at what I'm actually likely 
 to do with my setup, and come up with one neat, tidy solution to replace 
 the tangled morass of random bits of kit I accumulated over the years.
 
 I might record from two different microphones at once.
 
 I might record from two different line level inputs at once.
 
 I need a way to monitor the mix on headphones so I don't record the mix 
 as background noise on subsequent tracks.
 
 I need coax SPDIF output (or possibly something else, and a new 
 amplifier, as this thing is kind of limping anyway)
 
 I'm likely to continue with Ubuntu, so if the dongle I buy needs 
 firmware, it should be something readily and easily available through 
 Ubuntu.
 
 Anyway, I thought I'd see what more modern people are using these days, 
 and fish for suggestions.

I've still got a trusty 24/96 in one of my machines, but when I go semi-mobile
I use a Komplete Audio 6. It's audio class compliant, has analogue (line and
mic), MIDI, SPDIFF and a built in headphone amp. I've had it working with an
eeePC900, an ancient AMD, and a dual core 32bit Intel.

I got it from Thomann (Germany). Their deliveries, packaging and customer
support is second to none.

 Some of those can be turned off in the View menu, giving you more space.
 
 Sorry, no idea about auto-scroll.  At first I thought you were talking
 about the autoscroll that follows the playback - that's easily turned off
 from the tool bar - but it appears you're talking about something else,
 how the screen tries to recenter when you move to the edge.  I don't know.

This is something I have a problem with too, even on a full size display.
Personally, I think autoscroll should only take place if you are attempting to
drag the pointer right out of the work area.

In any case, I would prefer the vertical one to be *much* slower that it
currently is.

Yes, you 'select all' CTRL-A in the main matrix window then do a sideways drag
