This is Steinway_IMIS soundfont, version 2.2.
This version fixes the issue with loops. I hope this is the good one
and there are no more remaining major bugs.
Marcos is a little busy right now, so he asked me to make this fix. He
is thinking to make other improvements, so expect more updates soon.
Is anybody out here in LAU land have experience with PISound?
I have just bought one and am having quite sever teething problems with it.
It keeps freezing for ~45 seconds when running X and I cannot get it to
use the full display.
If not me then who? If not now then when? If not here then where?
So, here I stand, I can do no other

I recently bought a LinnStrument from Roger Linn Design:
It is a great isomorphic midi-controller, and as such it is immediately
recognized on Linux.
The distinguishing feature of the LinnStrument is that it senses 3
degrees of freedom on each note: x-direction, y direction and
z-direction (pressure). The x-direction is mapped to pitch-bend, and
y-direction to CC74.
A cool feature is the "slide", where the pitch-bend is used to slide
between all notes in a row.
To allow individual pitch and CC74 values for each note, it sends each
note on a separate midi-channel ("MPE"):
Bitwig has added support for this, and there is 20 presets in version
1.3.11, where this is used (tag: linnstrument). The LinnStrument
controller is not recognized automatically on Linux in version 1.3.11,
but it can be configured manually, and then it works fine. Note that
both midi-in and midi-out has to be configured, if not there is no
sound! It should look like this: https://ibin.co/2msBJVgpKtf9.png
Now I would like to also use it with the free Linux synths.
Here's what I have been able to make work this far.
PME works reasonably well: I can play polyphonic in MPE mode, but it
tends to miss the "note off"s.
I can get the slide to work, by setting
<param index="36" name="DEF1_PITCHBEND">2</param>
<param index="78" name="DEF2_PITCHBEND">2</param>
is a preset.
I can not get MPE to work.
Sending only on one channel, and setting PWheelB.Rng to 2400 cents, I
cant get the sliding to work, but only when playing with one finger.
If I enable MPE on the LinnStrument there is only an occasional sound,
when it happens to send on the channel, that Zyn is listening on.
I'll love to hear if other LinnStrument users have been able to do more
with any of the free synths on Linux.
All the best,
I've basically been using the same configuration (Arch/ALSA/Jack2) for years now and it's stable
and everything, but I feel like I've been living under a rock when it comes to Linux Audio developments,
so I thought I'd reach out and ask if there's any current developments that I should follow or toy around
As there are interesting discussions about pipewire. I'll go with a
somewhat open question.
I'm wondering how will 'MIDI' work and especially if an how will
alsa-midi applications be able to happily and collaboratively :-) work
with jack-midi ones (currently provided by a2j), potentially with some
Would it facilitate the vision, which I tried to discuss sometimes on
this list, about being able to interconnect 'any' midi application on
Linux _and_ facilitate the faster-than-real-time generation (rendering)
of a digital file/stream of what the user 'hears'? :-)
It seems that now pipewire does support freewheeling , and (maybe)
that could be promising?
Hello I have a Yamaha WX5 midi wind controller and a steinberg UR22C. Runnng Ubuntu Linux. It recognizes the steinberg but I am new to pro music and am wondering what is the simplest way to be able to hear the instrument. Someone hhtold me that I need to use virtual instruments for this instrument. Is it neccessary to install a daw in order to install the virtual instruments? Again I am new so anyone that can explain to me how to just
Hear the instrument would be great.
I have just fired up Yoshimi and it crashed on startup. So I updated again
from github and it still does with this message:
Yay! We're up and running :-)
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range'
what(): vector::_M_range_check: __n (which is 0) >= this->size() (which is 0)
Aborted (core dumped)
This is reproducible on every startup. Can anyone reproduce this?
