i've installed rosegarden on my mandriva 2006. then i've download dssi
from "thac's rpm" (www.mde.djura.org/index2006.0.html). in particular
i've installed these files:
after the installation process ended, i've read the file
i've run first jack and then "less_trivial_synth", "trivial_sampler" and
my dssi-path was set by default and so all these plugins started (i saw
this by looking on jack connections) and i managed also to play
"less_trivial_synth" by my m-audio keystation. i've managed also to rec
and play with rosegarden.
the problem is that in all the cases, the gui of these soft-synth
how can i solve the problem?
ps. sorry if my english isn't very good.....
Now this is pretty basic, but I have Googled around a bit and can't find
What do I look for (in /proc/sys/kernel I assume) to tell me whether a
2.6 kernel has realtime preemption compiled in?
just noticed the following behavior and want to know if that is only for me:
Using multiple desktops/workspaces and qjackctl makes the app opening
its 'Connect' window on the desktop i started qjackctl in (after moving
the window to another desktop).
Summary: I click 'Connections' and cycle through my other desktops to
find the window.
This is on debian testing powerpc using fluxbox 0.9.14 and qjackctl
I've got a DVD-A disc with residue on it, which won't wash off, and
which causes a lot of skipping. If this were a CD, I'd just use
cdparanoia to rip it, then burn a fresh copy. Does anyone know of
something like that for Linux? FWIW, I put the disc in my DVD+/-RW
drive (Lite-on, if it matters) and its type wasn't recognized.

Was not so bad. No more undefines and get my UM1 usb and the ens1371 just
fine. snd=mu401 does not load with same error as in 2.6.12 kernels!
The audio plays through the ensonic just fine.
I used to be able to "cat" the midi from the UM1 cat /dev/midi1 but this did
Since I had no midi out, I could not try playing MIDI or "thru"ing the
keyboard using jackqtl to connect the UM1 to the mpu401.
1. Debian stock kernels are not built with alsa's core. I needed to roll my
own for this.
2. The mpu401 problem remains from 2.6.12.
Csound 5 has finally arrived, enjoy...
After what has seemed a very long time (because it was...) we are
The binary, manuals and source files are on
http://sourceforge.net/projects/csound and look for the csound5 files.
The opportunity has been taken to tidy up the assembly of csound4.23
and earlier files and we are leaving the 4.23 files for a short
Main message -- everyone should change to csound5. More robust,
faster, more facilities, more fun, more music.
Release Notes for Csound 5.00
The developers are very pleased to be releasing Csound5, for Linux (32
and 64 bit), Mac OSX and Windows, together with an uptodate manual.
The system can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/projects/csound
More details and further information can be found in the
csound-develop mailing list at sourceforge and the main user mailing
list ar csound(a)lists.bath.ac.uk
The changes from version 4.23 are extensive. The internal structure
of the code has been radically changed, but the language remains
compatible with Csound4, and all old orchestra/scores should run
The main visible change is that we are using a plugin style of
system. many of the opcodes are now loaded at start-up. This opens
the way for private opcode libraries, and opcodes released under other
licences than LGPL.
The other major change is a move to the use of external libraries
where possible. All the internal code for sound files, realtime audio
etc has been replaced. We are now using libsndfile for audio file
I/O, and one of ALSA, PortAudio, CoreAudio, MME or ASIO for realtime.
MIDI may be handled by PortMIDI as well. The incorporation of Open
Sound Control facilities uses the liblo library.
A number of opcodes from csoundAV and csoundVST are now part of the
Another major change is that Csound5 is embeddable in other
programming systems, using an API for information linkage. We are
including Python, Java and other bindings for the API. Csound5 can
also have multiple instances and is re-entrant.
In addition there are a number of new opcodes, and of course bug
fixes. We believe that csound5 is faster than csound4, and we
encourage all users to move to it.
NOTE: IT MAY BE NECESSARY ON SOME PLATFORMS TO HAVE EITHER ENVIRONMENT
VARIABLES OPCODEDIR OR OPCODEDIR64 SET TO POINT TO DIRECTORY WHERE

pairs, not just the last
new optional argument to distort1 opcode (defaults to zero),
to select amplitude scaling mode (0: default, compatible with
original version; 1: relative to 0dBFS, same as mode 0 if 0dbfs is
32768; 2: unscaled)

This is to announce the starting of a new project: Denemochives, an archives of notation in the .denemo file format under the creative commons licence.
The idea is to give composers a place to archive their works and also to promote new compositions in a variety of formats.
users of denemo can convert from lilypond file format to denemo with a script included in denemo.
we may in the future offer online comversions, but currently notation,midi etc should be updated in zip or tar.gz format.
