Re: [Rosegarden-user] Crucial: Help needed with Rosegarden Crashing:

2020-08-11 Thread David W. Jones


Hey, Michael! Long time no hear but yeah 80 hour weeks are killers...

Ideas for our original poster to possibly produce an alternative 'backup' 
recording.

If recording audio, start a jack_record command line session with the "-jt" 
option. When you start Rosegarden recording, jack_record will also be recording 
the audio.

If recording MIDI, have an amidi command line session running with the "-r" 
option followed by a filename? That will record a file containing same midi 
events as Rosegarden.

If Rosegarden crashes, it won't affect what those have recorded unless it takes 
down the whole computer.

Re: [Rosegarden-user] [Solved] CPU load rises when Rosegarden is idle

2020-08-06 Thread David W. Jones


Hmm, maybe with your old "unfavorable" settings the new auto routing change 
process was still running?

re: CPU load > 100%.

The joys of multicore processors.

On my old i7 (4 core + hyperthreading), htop could show CPU usage hitting 400% 
or more.

The i9 (8 core + HT) I have now can hit 100% on each core/thread, with htop 
showing a total of 1600% during heavy panorama stitch jobs.

What processor do you have? Even the lowly Pentium 4 in my server box has 2 
cores.

Re: [Rosegarden-user] midi commands from Rosegarden

2020-08-04 Thread David W. Jones



My interpretation of Alexandre's post below is you create separate events for 
each value to send - two CC events to set the MSB and LSB values, then a 
Program Change.

That would send three succesive MIDI values, yes?

Knowing nothing about this level of MIDI, I'm just trying to make sense of 
things and hope it helps.

Another option: Use the fluidsynth DSSI plugin in RG. Works for me and seems to 
handle instrument changes better than RG interacting with Qsynth.

Don't know.

No, that would be awful. I hate the piano roll/matrix editor.

I think the sheet vs piano roll editor is controlled via a preference setting. 
Don't know about the space vs ctrl+enter or record button.

I'm planning to move to a 4K laptop. Would it be possible to use SVG 
fonts/graphics for layout? Or some way to set large font sizes? This whole 
antique "specify sizes in pixels" thing is getting pretty tedious, even on my 
present HD (1920x1080) setup.

My wife's Asus is 2014 or 2015. Booted it from a USB stick, got to see all the 
lovely partitions Window 10 scattered all over the drive. Xubuntu 18.04 
installed over it with no problems.

That wasn't Ubuntu Studio. Maybe they're behind the times?

I like that idea.  Or leave it red and add pastel green background.

I like this logo design idea.

[Rosegarden-user] RGD 'device' file for Yoshimi or Zyn?

2018-06-06 Thread David W. Jones
Would make working with them much easier. When I set up a patch (one of the 
included ones) in Yoshimi, RG seems to set it back to YoshimI's default patch.

Thanks. Keep me posted. RG on my laptop works, RG on desktop is the broken one. 
Same RG version on both.

Laptop has jackd2 1.19.12 from KXstudio.

Desktop has jackd2 1.19.12 from Xenial.

Would be quite happy to compile from source.
