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 was somehow very fond of that album in particular but it seems it has
entirely vanished of the web by now. I could find the wiki page and
rpm08 page on archive.org but no music.
I was just wondering whether anyone cares to restore it in some fashion.
I have the rpm08, 09 and 12 final mix but no project files or anything
Anyone now of a site source where I can provide the detailed
specifications I am seeking, and then get a list of options?
i have a treasured pair of JVC headphones with a short near the plug.
While i am getting them repaired, hopefully soon, it might not be a bad
idea to find alternatives...not happy that I did not buy a couple of pairs
when I last found them a few years ago.
Hoping for a resource, because specs are more challenging given so many
wear headphones as a fashion statement these days.
This script, by recording LTC into CH1 of three cameras:
created this video:
It's an analog workflow - see the video description. My day job is
programming and while some people like me may get computers just for fun -
I need a true escape. I feel analog sequencers are more like an instrument
and somehow makes more sense to me by using control voltage via the
Analogue Solutions Oberkorn and Korg SQ1. I also use analog outboard i.e.
mixers, compressors, filters and eq.
To be clear, this is a personal workflow preference and I am not knocking
anyones elses workflow, soft synths, VST's or plugins - many of which are
excellent. I'm a bit of a snowflake so I hope people take it that way.
I wrote a script because it's less than 1000 lines and I never was able to
gel with open source editing software on Linux that supports timecode - I
only use Linux and open source software. I soon realized that with LTC the
whole thing can be somewhat easily done programmatically.
we are very close to the next release of Yoshimi. This will carry a new
lightweight HTML user guide (the full-fat PDF is still available).
It would be very helpful if folks could take a look at this both for content
and layout. It should display correctly on any modern browser, and also
reformat itself to suit most smartphones.
Until the actual release, I'm keeping a copy of the guide at the url below.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.

My problem, as a perpetual newbie, is that I need a "Troubleshooting"
section. In "Getting Started" there's a line early on:
> If all has gone well, clicking on one of the keys should immediately produce sound, and if there was a MIDI keyboard plugged in that should also have been recognised and be playable.
I'm missing the "else" clause: What if all has not gone well, and as
in my case, clicking any of the keys produces movement in the volume
meter but no sound?
