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
root(a)worik.org 021-1680650, (03) 4821804 Aotearoa (New Zealand)
trying to get an old Emagic Esi32 to run on my Debian stable system.
Upon connecting I get in dmesg:
emi26 - firmware loader 2-1:1.0: emi26_probe start
usb 2-1: firmware: failed to load emi26/loader.fw (-2)
usb 2-1: Direct firmware load for emi26/loader.fw failed with error -2
usb 2-1: emi26_load_firmware - error loading firmware: error = -2
It seems there is some kind of firmware needed, and it exists/existed
according to this list https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware/List
but I can't seem to find it in the apt package manager.
Does anyone have experience with this card, or any idea I could try
I have a strange situation. When I launch scsynth manually from a
it starts jack according to my ~/.jackdrc and everything is fine.
If I call basically the same scsynth command as a subprocess from
a program (written in Haskell) scsynth seems to launch a different
jack, which fails claiming it can't read hw:0.
So my question is: When exactly would autostarting jack *ignore* my
~/.jackdrc, and why, and how do I stop it from doing so?
Finally I have released SoundTracker v1.0.3. Comparing to the last
pre-release, 1.0.3-pre2, this is only the bugfixing release with few
small improvements only. Here are main features of the 1.0.3 release
comparing to 1.0.2:
- Indication of the current playing instrument / sample number in scopes
(optional via Settings)
- Extended pattern sequence editor with DND (activaled by right-click on
the playlist area)
- Quick instrument selection
* Track editor:
- Track line insertion / removal
- Masking for cut / copy / paste operations (also the contents of CCP
buffers can be inspected)
* Instrument editor:
- Envelopes cutting / copying / pasting / scaling
- Indication of the keys playing with the current instrument also in the
pattern / song playing mode
* Sample editor:
- Automatic Gain Control sample processing procedure
- Selection from loop and to the left / right of the exising selection
- Optional loop playback when playing selection
- Waveform value indication
- Loop Facility, an advanced tool for manipulations with sample loops
You can find more new features in NEWS file.

a neat little package made with synthpop, rock, dubstep and EDM:
This song uses a lot of Csound, both sounds rendered to disk and loaded into
LinuxSampler as well as live playing. Drums, effects, guitars and basses. Next
in line is Yoshimi with another really good bass, pads and pluck sounds. This
is followed by more LinuxSampler and a bit of hardware. This song required
quite a bit of mixing work, but I still hold that it was totally worth it. :)
The lyrics are below, in case someone wants them. My comprehensibility hasn't
*** Lyrics ***
Snap decision on the edge of perfection:
Line by line, keep goin'.
Burning eyes in the silver reflexion.
Red and white: it's showin'.
It's where pain and joy
Are like one golden coin.
Such a sharp, racy toy
Someone here - someone there
Take a mere - little care...
But the world is unfair,
Risk a dream if you dare...
Our plots come with serrated
Edges Cut to bleed.
Get on the ride!
It'll tan your hide.
Strike a spark with a positive whiplash:
Flame by flame, you're set alight.
Feed your passion with a merciless love stash!
Eyes and skin so bright.
Slap a stamp on your skin,
Ink the message in.
Bind your heart in a tie
Send it in!
Is it heat? - Is it love?
Feel the need - like a shove.
Crave the hands, when they're rough.
Take your joy, when it's tough.
A crash is guaranteed.
Our plots come with serrated
Edges cut to bleed.
Get on the ride!
It'll tan your hide.

So, I am having an issue with zita-j2n ...
I have a setup for streaming audio across my home network. There are two
Linux boxes involved, both running Arch Linux; both are connected by
Ethernet to the router (well, actually the broadband modem, which serves as
a router). One is my desktop computer (which I will call the client), the
other is a headless media server (which I will call the server). The client
machine has headphones, and the server has speakers. I need to be able to
send the output from arbitrary sound sources on the client to either the
headphones or the speakers. So I have Jack running on both machines and
need to send audio from client-side Jack to server-side Jack. I also have
an Alsa loopback interface setup on the client, because I need to play
music from programs that don't support Jack - e.g Spotify or web-based
sources like YouTube and Soundcloud (BTW, I am a musician and sometimes use
pro audio software on my desktop system, but this particular setup is not
for that - it's mainly just for listening to music).
I had a version of this setup that worked fine for several years, but it
used Jack1 with the network backend. But a few days ago it stopped working
for some reason ... anyway, long story, but I decided it was time to switch
to Jack2. And I saw that Jack2's network backend isn't usable in the same
way, so I decided to try zita-njbridge.
So, I've more or less figured out how to do this, and have modified the
Python script that manages all the client-side components to use zita-n2j.
I can play music on the desktop machine and stream the output to the server
and hear it on the speakers. So, good. However, zita-j2n crashes frequently
(sometimes every 3-5 minutes) with the following message:
Fatal error condition, terminating.
I would like to find out what is causing these errors. The server-side
system seems solid: Jack and zita-n2j run continuously for several hours
with no apparent problems. So it seems likely that the cause of the problem
is either on the client machine or the network. Apparently zita-n2j doesn't
have a debug mode, so I don't know how to gather the info I need to solve
this. Any suggestions?
