I have recently bought the ice1712-based DSP2000 C-PORT from Hoontech and
I'm really satisfied with it. I only have a little problem: MIDI!
The card has 1 MIDI in and 2 MIDI out, and the 2 outs are working fine.
However, I can't get anything from MIDI in :-(
Anyone has that card and can confirm this problem or I have to check my
hardware? Maybe ALSA get confused? With aconnect I see 2 devices (0 and 32)
both as inputs and as outputs...
I've tried on the staudio.com forum and they suggest to test the card under
windows, but (ehm..) I don't have it...

I have jack installed and working now. So, now I'm trying to get
AlsaModularSynth compiled and running. Has anyone else accomplished this
in debian stable (woody)?
I installed libqt3-mt (along w/everything it depended upon), fftw-dev,
fftw2, sfftw-dev, sfftw2 and ladspa-sdk to get ladspa.h. I've tried to
edit the top of make_ams to agree with the location of the qt3 libs, bin
and include directories on my system as best as I could figure ... but
I'm not sure I got it right:
it seems to compile OK when I do:
make -f make_ams
though there are a lot of warnings about comparing signed to unsigned
and other warnings that flew by. Are these benign?
Anyway. I end up with an executable ams. When I run ./ams I get this:
./ams: error while loading shared libraries: libjack.so.0: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
I have that in /usr/local/lib/libjack.so.0 so creating this link appears
box1:/usr/lib# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libjack.so.0 libjack.so.0
Is that the correct sollution?
ams: cannot connect to X server
I assume this is because X is running as me (eric) and not as root. I'll
try getting out of X and starting it as root as soon as I finish writing
this message. But, is there a way to let root connect to the X server
that's running as eric?
I was sort of ok (well, not really, but I'm giving it a try) with the
idea of running jackd and its clients as root ... but, running X as
root, too? that makes me more nervous, somehow... maybe I shouldn't be
nervous about that ... I'm not sure.
anyway. i'll give it a shot with a root X session.
I'm thinking that maybe I should patch and recompile the kernel and
recompile jack to enable capabilities so I don't have to run as root.
Do those of you running jackd as root also run your X session as root?
Thanks for listening,
PS If all of this has been covered before and my questions are annoying
you, feel free to send me to the archives. I try to follow jackit-devel,
but most of it seemed to go over my head before I actually started to
try it. So, re-reading the past couple months would probably do me some
good now that I have the real thing in front of me. -edrz

I've been trying to stretch a soundfile. It is a piano track with mostly two
voices only. I did it with an fft plain phase vocoder. Now there are a lot of
parameters and I got some undesireable delay. In general the stretched sound
was good, but the delay is disturbing. So here's the question, how should I
set the following parameters to get the best result?
fft-length (as high as possible?), windows per second, window length,
windowtype (hamming, triangular, kasier with several coeffecients).
Any ideas or practical experience with that? - I'm NOT doing it in realtime,
so CPU-time is no problem. I've got time! :-)
Thanbks for any help or good ideas!

I want to record in 7200 frequency, 8bit, mono. Well the specs may seem
strange but we have a HardWare which understands voice files only with these
I have 2.4.18-3 linux kernel.
I have intel 810E chipset, with builtin audio card.
Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801AA AC'97 Audio (rev 02)
I too have Sound Blaster Live.
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 08)
Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port
And we use xwave and soundstudio for recording.
And i have intel audio card under alsa.
Intel Audio Card:
I could record properly in 16 bit, but when i record in 8 bit it gives lot
of noise. I dont know from where it comes.
Sound Blaster Live:
I could record in given specs, but when i play back the bass gets
increased. I mean it dosen't seem to be the same voice anymore.
Can anybody help me.

Hello. I got following when I used mpg321 (/usr/bin/mpg123) on
Title : Lazy (excerpt) Artist: Deep Purple
Album : Year : 2001
Comment: 100No such file or directoryade with Csoun softsynth
Genre : Hard Rock
What is that "100No such file or directory"??!! The end of mp3 file
2001100% made with Csoun softsynthO
For what that feature can be used? Are my own files in danger?
mpg123 gives following version numbers:

I used to play MIDI with AWE-64 with 24 MB RAM extention.
So I could use the SF2 soundfonts.
Unfortunately, the AWE-64 requires an EISA slot.
Could please enybody recommend a PCI successor of the
AWE64 which allows loading of SF2 soundfonts.
Please do not recommend Audigy! This is a lie! The
Audigy ALSA driver accidentally drops some
tones. This is a known bug, but
apparently nobody is willing to fix this
Furthermore it ignores reverbation and
Please do not recommend FluidSynth. To avoid
misundersandings: Actually FluidSynth is a good
software. But it produces wrog envelopes for
strings and clarinets. The envelops are
like xylophone (or so ...)
I alreay mentioned this problem on this list.
But without success.

Specimen is a midi controlled sampler, and it's very first public
release is available from http://www.gazuga.net/specimen.tar.gz
In all honesty, I advise against downloading this in it's current
state unless you intend to hack on it or play with it for sheer
amusement value only. There are a few TODO items that must be taken
care of before this can be considered usable software (as the next
release will be). The main reason for this release is because I said
I was going to make a release in a couple of weeks 15 days ago.
It's very nascent stuff.
You have been warned.
