E-radium is Radium and a special version of E-UAE.
Radium is a midi music editor for the amiga and E-Uae is an amiga
This version of E-Uae is a hacked version of 0.28cvs, which runs
with realtime priority to get accurate timing and supports alsa-seq
to access midi. It does not hog the cpu as much as e-uae does
either so it can be used together with various sound synthesis
software running simultaniously in linux.
E-radium has been tested with both the 2.4 kernel and the 2.6 kernel
and with a ~1GhZ machine and a ~2ghz machine. (A 2.4 kernel with a
100hz resolution timer will proably not work very nice though.)
1. Run ./e-radium
2. Unpress the "Pause" button.
3. Select which resolution you want to run radium with.
4. Connect midi-ports with qjackctl, aconnect, qconnect or similar
CONFIGURING THE KEYBOARD
If you are a non-us keyboard user, you might have to configure
the keyboard by setting the approporitate type.
e-uae currently supports fr, us, de, dk, se, it and es. Pick the
one closest to what you use, and put it into the "kbd_lang"-field
in the file ".uarc-radium".
(The keyboard should rather have been mapped directly from the

E-radium creates 8 public alsa-midi seq ports. Currently, only
the 2 first ones are enabled. To enable more, check out the
On the linux-side (alsa-seq), the name of the ports are uae0,
uae1, uae2 and so on.
On the amiga-side (camd), the name of the ports are mmp.0,
mmp.1, mmp.2 and so on. These are directly connected if
enabled in s/startup-sequence.
Radium is currently configured to read midi from the uae0 alsa
LINUX VERSION OF RADIUM
Radium runs quite okey on its own (v0.63), but its not quite
there yet. Until its there, running it via uae is the only
way to use it besides using a real amiga of course (altough
that is much slower than emulating).
