Try talking directly to the manufacturer. Instrument/amp builders
are usually really open and easy to talk to.
failing that, I remember that Streetwater Sound Inc. were a dealer.

Gibson might sell you one without the attached guitar if you get a
dealer to talk directly to them
Rewiring a pickup yourself is a very enlightening and satisfying excercise.
Of course I was 19 or 20 and had the time, but it really was a fun project.
Connections/cable and needing six amps was a bit of a problem, though. :/
...or can be a welcome addition...

Hi all. Julien suggested I post this, and is hosting it for me as I
only have short-term storage at present. This was a birthday present
I did the original MIDI file in Windows, but from there all was done in
Linux. MIDISH to play the MIDI file, and Nama/Ecasound for recording.
The organ is a
jOrgan disposition for an American Classic organ, perhaps something in
the style of the 1930's/40s. jOrgan is playing SF2 soundfonts through
System76's Gazelle includes Firewire, plus USB3 and USB2, and includes
Intel SSD's as drive options:
They supply it with 64-bit Ubuntu 10.10 installed.
I have no connection with System76 beyond the fact that my best friend
has bought a couple of systems from them and been very happy with
machines. He doesn't do pro audio stuff, though!

I have some strange problems with my jack-install. I know some time ago
i experimented with different versions of jack. Means i compiled them.
Later I installed the normal jack2 from my debian-distribution(Now
squeeze 64 bit) but it seems i didn't remove the compiled one. I
recognized this now and thought maby jack is using some of the libs in
/usr/local/. I could not find the src directory anymore, so i just
manually removed everything jackish in usr/local. Now surprisingly jack
does not want to start because it doesnt find the libs in
/usr/local/libs/jack. I reinstalled jack2 and libjack from debian and
even made a symlink from /usr/lib/jack to /usr/local/lib/jackand jack is
still complayning that it cannot handle the librarys in local/lib/jack.
What can I do besides reinstalling my whole system?
Deep in the basement of the OpenOctaveProject, the team have been
working hard, to bring OpenOctaveMidi into the modern age. From the
new interface, to the workflow features, OOM2 is the result of a great
deal of hard work, and thought. In our Project journey towards a great
Linux Audio pipeline, OOM2 represents the next important step.
With the help of our platinum sponsor TSI, we were afforded two full
time developers to help with the task of getting to where we are
today. We would like to thank TSI for their continued longterm support
OOM2 linear Midi and Audio sequencer.
We announce the beta release of the 2nd version of the OpenOctaveMidi
sequencer, known as OOM2. After a change of codebase, a complete
rebuild of the user interface, and the addition of new features and
functions, we're proud to present this version as our initial beta
OOM2 is a linear Midi and Audio sequencer for the Linux operating
system in both 32 and 64bit.
OOM2 uses the following:
* JACK-audio - http://jackaudio.org
* JACK-midi - for midi support
* DSSI - synth plugins
* VST(i) - synth plugins (through DSSI, for the moment. We're
more interested in native linuxplugins, so the DSSI-VST implementation
may be removed.)
* ALSA-midi - for midi support
* QT4.6.0 or later (earlier versions may work, but are not tested)
You can download OOM2 from our github repository at:
Use the command:
git clone git://github.com/ccherrett/oom.git
to install the source in an empty directory of your choosing, and
follow the build instructions in the Readme file.
Please note we're adding new commits each day, and more features are
coming very soon, hence the Beta release notice.
We hope you enjoy using OOM2, and should you have anything you'd like
to report, please send an email to:
We can also be found on irc at #openoctave (freenode)
Visit www.openoctave.org to find out more!

I was asking cause I did a short test with Jack1 svn this morning and I
didn't got xruns with yoshimi and the hammon patch. Yoshimi zombified 3
times though, probably because of asking to much from my cpu. The mp
support of Jack2 seems to be an advantage when it comes to cpu load.
When I set cpu scaling with sudo cpufreq-set -g performance, I have the
best proaudio performance on my thinkpad T61. But, that will also heat
things up very quickly with as consequence more sound from the fans.
The laptop is more silent when I use, sudo cpufreq-set -g ondemand, but
I get more xruns then.
Is it possible to adjust the ondemand settings to find more balance
between performance and noise? How?
Btw., I use thinkfan to control the temperature and fan speed
My /etc/thinkfan.conf settings are:
sensor /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal (2, 7, 8, 0, 0, 0, 7, 0, 12, 5, 5)
(0, 0, 54)
(1, 50, 57)
(2, 52, 59)
(3, 54, 63)
(4, 56, 65)
(5, 59, 66)
(7, 63, 32767)
Thanks in advance,
It's sorta-off-topic, but my Sprint contract ends next month, and I'm looking to shake up my phone/mobile-network situation. I'm looking at other providers (and I refuse to use Verizon on principle, becuase they are unscrupulous thieves, but that's a different story).
Well maybe it is on topic, because I would LOVE a smartphone that runs linux and has a hardware QWERTY keyboard, and even better if it could at least theoretically run fluidsynth and jackd and aseqnet.
The perfect phone to get seems to be the N900, since Linux runs on it explicitly with manufacturer support and usability, but it is very expensive (US$300 used).
There are, however, very many used smartphones on Craigslist for a third or less of that price. I'd prefer going that route. But which run Linux? It's a zoo. There doesn't appear to be any nice clean table anywhere showing what phones can or can be made to run Linux and to what degree they actually work.
Any advice? I'm told some of the older HTC's out there have been made to run Linux, but the documentation on that hasn't been too encouraging.
It's a cost-versus-risk thing. If I can find a US$30 phone with sort-of-might-work-on-linux, then I'll take the gamble and try to get it running, and just resell it if I can't. If I'm going to spend US$100, I need the thing to pretty much be guaranteed to work. And if I've got to spend much more than that, I might just keep saving up for a while and get an N900.
I want to start using OSC to see what can be done with it.
What options are there for sending OSC messages?
For instance, what can I use to type OSC messages (or assign them to
keystrokes) and then send them?
Just something that is a good general purpose program and not
specialized to OSC messages for a particular application so that I can
start playing with it.
P.S. Prompted by a GUI freeze in Ardour and me wondering if it would
respond to OSC.
