[Rosegarden-user] MIDI CC -- how to add ruler for ones list?

2019-03-16 Thread Brett McCoy
In the "Add Control Ruler" menu in the Matrix Editor, there are only these
CCs listed

10 Pan
93 Chorus
7 Volume
91 Reverb
64 Sustain
11 Expression
1 Modulation

How can I add a ruler for an arbitrary CC# -- for instance, I am sending
MIDI to an external sample player that has CC#2 available for playing an
ornamented note. How can I send this from Rosegarden (aside from using
Event Editor, which is painful)

I don't know the answer to your issue, but I will recommend upgrading
to the latest version of Rosegarden before continuing and possibly
your version of Debian, Rosegarden 10.04.2 is very old (current
version is 13.02). Debian Sid  Wheezy have at least v12.04, as do

Ubuntu Studio 3? Must have been a very old version, since 10.04 or so

 I was using rosegarden for years now, and liked the feature, that you could

 Since the last update, I don't hear anything there. Midi notes are sent
 only, if they have been edited
 in the matrix editor. But not by just clicking piano roll notes or pressing
 keyboard keys.

 Do you have the same experience? I hope this feature was not just thrown
 out.

It should still work in all of the latest versions of RG. I use the
piano roll extensively and this feature is most definitely still
there. Check that your MIDI channel for the track isn't set to 'auto'
if it was previously set to a specific channel, it should be set to
'fixed' and a specific MIDI channel. This can cause some unexpected
results.

They do sound OK, for the most part. Gabriel Nord recently produced an
album using these samples (along with some other Linux stuff, although
I don't think RG was involved):

http://www.ironink.se/music.htm

 Otherwise what do you use for orchestra sounds?

I use a lot of commercial libaries for Kontakt, EWQL Play and Best
Service Engine, they are hosted on a separate Windows machine.

 I have piano sounds out the wazoo (there's also pianoteq, which has
 fantastic sounding algorithmically based piano instruments, but they
 are commercial apps, even on Linux). Orchestral sounds and various
 ethnic/exotic instrument sounds are what I use the most, and they cost
 money to produce, which is more likely than not why you don't see much
 in the way of free sample libraries for that kind of thing. I think
 this was recently discussed at great length on both the LAD list and
 on the Ardour IRC -- why aren't there more free orchestral libraries?
 Personally, I'd settle for a native version of Kontakt on Linux!

 There are a few commercial GIG libraries around, I wonder if anyone
 tried them on LinuxSampler, it would be interesting to see a trial about
 this.

Sadly, gig libraries are getting more and more scarce since Tascam
ended Gigasampler. Kontakt seems to be the most popular sampler format
now. I would be the first to sign up if Kontakt came to Linux, there
has been some interest expressed from NI, but probably won't happen
anytime soon. I *think* Kontakt on OS X supports Jack, but it's a
hidden feature that they don't advertise.

 == ROSEGARDEN 12.12, codename Glenfiddich RELEASED ==

 The Rosegarden team is proud to announce the release of version 12.12 of
 Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for
 Linux.

 http://www.rosegardenmusic.com/

 This release continues the trend of putting almost all development
 effort into stabilization instead of new features.  Once again, Ted
 Felix deserves a large amount of credit for his tenacious pursuit of
 solutions to immensely complex problems.

 = Bug Fixes =
* The last release was r12926 in svn.
* Fix for bug #1348 (was #3542166) MIDI Recording Drops Notes (r12959)
* Fix for bug #1349 (was #3546135) Crash going past end of
 composition (r13005)
* r12928-12933 have Chris fixing up some audio stuff that looks
 important.  Crashes are mentioned.
* r12937 has Tom adding some controller commands that look really
 interesting.
* Julien (serval2412) sent us some cppcheck-related code quality
 fixes in r12943 and r12950.
* When a repeating segment follows an ordinary segment, if the
 clef/key is redundant and therefore hidden, the first repeat bar was
 misplaced in the notation editor. (The bar inset was computed without
 taking account of clef/key redundance.)
* Lyrics with multiple verses are now distributed among repeated
 segments (true repeating segments or successive linked segments) in the
 notation editor. This is controlled by the new distribute verses
 option in the notation panel of the configuration editor
* Notation editor : When there are more repeated segments displayed
 than the number of verses in lyrics, first verses are shown again under
 the last segments.
* Patch to fix the float edit thing from Tim Munro (r13102)
* Synth plugins Controls button crash and a plugin settings bug fix
 from Tim Munro. (r13103)
* Fix broken delete audio files dialog, bug #1357. (r13111 and r13112)
* Better handling of overlapping notes when recording.  This is a
 partial fix for bug #1350 Can't Record Beethoven. (r13116)
* Meter deflection fix from Robin Gareus (r13104)
* Fix broken segment transpose controls #1361 (r13118)
* Patch from Tim Munro to add lib64 variants to search path for DSSI
 and LADSPA plugins (r13125)
* Fix a bug that sometimes crashed RG (r13134)
* Notation view left and right arrows now skip over hidden events
 that show only in rulers (r13135)
* Fix for bug #1352 Manage Synth Plugins crash (r13138, r13139)
* Fix for bug #1375.  Rosegarden exports foreign character filenames
 correctly (r13151)

 = New Features =
* Tom's new controller commands (r12937).  Notation view has a new
 menu of controller commands, allowing controllers to be placed, edited,
 and copy/cut/pasted in a group.

 Sounds great. Now you only need a decent orchestra soundfont to play
 everything in Rosegarden (via Fluidsynth synth plugin).

I'd prefer to have decent orchestral samples for LinuxSampler but what
is available is severely lacking compared to what is available for
Kontakt or PLAY sample engines.

 What device is it?  I've never seen a problem like this.  If it shows up
 under the ALSA MIDI tab in QJackCtl (I think it just says ALSA) then
 it should show up in Rosegarden too.

 Rosegarden recognizing the audio side of things is a direct function of
 whether jackd is running or not, and the hardware is JACK's problem.

 In any case, if it was working with an older Rosegarden, it's just hard
 to imagine why it wouldn't be working now.  The MIDI connection stuff
 hasn't changed in ages, I don't think.  Maybe I'm forgetting something.
   Maybe some patch I forgot about had unintended consequences or something.

I don't think anything is missing. I experimented with multiple
versions this past weekend (I was trying to track down a MIDI issue
that ultimately had nothing to do with RG) -- the 11.x version
installed via Ubuntu, the last stable source release (12.04?) and SVN
trunk (whish is more or less what the new release is), and each was
able to find my hardware, synth ports and ipMIDI/qMIDINet MIDI
interfaces as needed.

Doesn't RG start up Jack on it's own now if it's not already running.
One thing for the OP to check is to make sure that jack_midi isn't
being used, because I don't think RG uses that yet (only the ALSA seq)

I don't think Rosegarden supports automation for audio. You are better
off using Ardour for advanced audio mixing (they both use jackd for

 The most likely explanation is that the new logical instruments automagic
 channel mapping stuff is playing hell with your setup.

 You can probably get rolling again by going in and changing a lot of stuff
 over from auto to fixed in the instrument parameters boxes.

Ah, didn't think about the new dynamic stuff (it wasn't a feature I

 Ah, didn't think about the new dynamic stuff (it wasn't a feature I
 was interested in so I had ignored it in the announcement), I will try
 that tonight when I am back in the studio.

Switching each instrument to fixed did it.

Might be a good idea for channels to default to 'fixed' and not 'auto'
when opening existing projects if it's not already set. This could
cause a lot of confusion if someone is migrating a project from an
older release or importing MIDI from other applications.

[Rosegarden-user] Sequencing problems with 12.04

2012-05-20 Thread Brett McCoy
I upgraded Rosegarden tonight because it kept crashing when I tried to
add expression data (CC11) :-( Unfortunately, after the upgrade, I
started getting strange sequencing issues, some tracks seemed to be
sending MIDI but nothing was playing back (maybe corrupted data???),
other times all tracks would send data to the same channel, as the
same instrument would play for each track, regardless of what MIDI
channel I had it set to. It was really weird...

My setup is kinda complex but has served me well for a long time. I
send MIDI data to multiple instruments in the MIDI studio. Each
instrument is mapped to QMIDINet outputs (this sends MIDI out over
ethernet). I have a Windows machine setup with ipMIDI, and with
multiple instances of various samplers like Kontakt and EWQL Play
loaded into Reaper, and the audio is sent back via SPDIF. It was
working well last night, in fact. After the upgrade, I started having
these random issues. I downgraded back to 11.11.42 and everything was
working. (The crashing from editing CC11 data is kind of bad, though).

I have this project I need to get finished up, and then I can help
debug this issue with 12.04.

 I appreciate this argument, and thank you for articulating it well.
 But I'm afraid I just don't see the evidence in other applications
 that broadening your user base, by porting to other platforms with a
 smaller proportion of developers, helps a great deal with development
 effort.

One thing I have noticed in the development of digital painting
applications like MyPaint and Krita (two other of my favorite Linux
apps, along with Rosegarden  Ardour!), is that if you create Windows
versions of applications originally developed on Linux, you have to do
a lot of hand holding for those users to either help them compile
stuff, or be prepared for loud complaining because the Windows support
isn't as good as the Linux support (especially for development
branches). Windows users especially don't quite seem to get the open
source development model (all they see if free software that I don't
have to pirate!). Unless there are dedicated Windows developers to a
project, Windows support will flounder until someone gets around to
fixing bugs or building a new version (funny how the users who
complain the most don't seem to want to volunteer their time to help).
Unfortunately, I think this gives some Windows users the impression
that the Linux developers are snobby, unhelpful and arrogant.

BTW, I was happy to see the new Rosegarden announced in the latest KVR
newsletter today!

 Some other things which has changed for the worse are the volume and
 pitch bend rulers. It used to be possible to click and drag them
 around, select multiple at once and delete them, or right click and
 select 'clear ruler'. Now you can't really do those things, and it's
 not very obvious how you're supposed to use it. After searching google
 I eventually found out that you can still insert a line of controllers
 by holding down shift. Anyway, I assume this functionality is
 unfinished and will be fixed in a later version.

Once you get used to it, the new way to do CCs is much better, much
more flexible. I personally disliked the old bars and found them
clumsy to use. You can still delete multiple points, just select and
then delete with the delete tool (same as used for events in the
piano roll). One thing I think would be helpful for the controller
rulers would be for the barlines from the matrix to be extended down
below on the ruler, so you can align controller points to beats.

 Another problem is that Rosegarden seems to take a long time to start
 up these days. In particular, it seems to spend a long time
 initializing [the] plugin manager. I imagine the plugin manager is
 only useful if you use Rosegarden for audio stuff. I think it would be
 good if it were possible to disable the plugin manager, so far I
 haven't found any way of doing this.

Don't see this problem myself. Now that Rosegarden no longer relies on
KDE it starts right up for me, and I am using a pretty old machine
with only 2G of RAM. I'm not using any synth plugins, however, or any
other plugins with Rosegarden, for that matter (and I have a ton of
LADSPA plugins on my machine)

 Rosegarden also crashes a lot these days. I've experienced a lot of
 segmentation faults lately, and sometimes when I start it up there are
 strange problems with the interface (such as buttons not drawing and
 etc). It seems like Rosegarden has been going through certain changes
 and works which still aren't finished, which would explain the rough
 edges that I've noticed in it.

What version are RG you using? Specs of your machine? Do you compile
from source or use distro supplied RG? I've found Rosegarden to be
fairly stable, and have put it through some pretty heavy orchestral
pieces in the past year with very few crashes.

 I'm not much of an expert on MIDI or on Rosegarden yet, but if you'll
 humour me... Currently I am working with Rosegarden 11.11 (on Linux)
 with FluidSynth and the FluidR3_GM sound font from fluid-soundfont-3.1
 package. There is one issue I haven't quite figured out: with certain
 instruments such as the flute and the piccolo, the notes are played so
 smoothly that if one places multiple notes of the same pitch one after
 the other, they sound almost like one long note. With a real flute I
 would prevent this by using my tongue to expel a greater force of air at
 the beginning of the note (the tu attack) thus allowing even rapid
 notes of the same pitch to sound distinct. I was wondering if there were
 any capabilities inherent in MIDI or in Rosegarden that would allow me
 to better simulate this.

Yep, you can edit the MIDI events directly in the piano roll editor
and make the ending of each note slightly short of the beat --
Shift-Click the note and you can bypass the snap to grid and move
the end of the note arbitrarily. This can be especially effective for
brass where you want to make it sound like it is being tongued
correctly (and helps to contrast against a legato passage). You can
also shape the attack and decay of notes using CC11 (expression),
assuming you are using an synth or sampler or whatever that supports
CC11. This works very nicely for long sustained notes, where the
middle of a note maybe be slightly louder than the beginning or the
end.

Note if you do change the MIDI notes in this fashion it can mess up
your notation, if you are using the notation editor in any fashion.

 Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux.
 A long time in the making, this release combines a number of bug fixes with
 two major sub-projects that happened to come together right at the same time,
 and several completely new features as well.  It is probably our most
 substantial offering since the landmark 10.02.

Well, the pitch tracker isn't doing what I thought it was for -- I
thought it was something to be used for composing microtonal music
directly in the score or piano roll, but the documentation I found
seems to imply something else. *shrug*

I ended up using pitch bending directly and found the pitch bend ruler
to be next to useless! It keeps randomly moving events around and
using the 'insert pitch bend sequence' never inserted events in the
right place. Since I am qunatizing at 32 notes, it may be the ruler is
getting confused, seems to work better on larger note durations. I've
ended up having to manually insert pitch bend events into the event
editor. Luckily, they are specific values for half-sharp, half-flat,
etc.

 Over the years, I have stopped putting in the Fermatas, since they did

 MIDI would help me greatly.  I am capable of simulating this effect by
 changing the tempo, but before I go there, I would like to know if the
 Fermata gets exported, or not.

As an articulation, no, I don't believe it gets exported. What I do
for a fermata is open the piano roll and stretch the notes to twice
their length (and maybe add some automation on CC11, to have the note
subtly swell up and then fade down), and then it will be in the
exported MIDI file. Unfortunately, it will mess up your notation, if
you are using Rosegarden for notation.

 What is the effect on Rosegarden of not having real-time?
 Would it matter for beginners like us?

 Ken
 P.S. The PC is an oldish 1.8GHz AMD Athlon with 512MB DRAM that was quite
 literally gathering dust until I gave it a last chance and installed Ubuntu
 10.10
 a few days ago. Is this spec too slow for Rosegarden without RT kernel
 support?
 What newer computer spec is likely to work? 64-bit OK for Rosegarden?


I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.10 with no realtime kernel, Rosegarden works fine
(along with Jack and other apps I use in conjunction with Rosegarden, like
Ardour, xjadeo, etc). Your machine needs more RAM, though, 512MB is pretty
tight, you'll be very limited with what you can do with plugins and other
programs that Rosegarden may need (like QSynth).

This may be apropos to your question also:

There are PPAs also available of you need kernel-rt for Ubuntu, or you
can just get the vanilla source and build your own

 Artist-X comes with a real time kernel and is based on Ubuntu, if you
 really want to have Ubuntu and kernel-rt together.
