Re: Raspberry Pi based Synthesizer

Hurrah. I was a bit surprised at the latency because the stuff I've tried hasn't been that bad. Looking forward to when I can have a play.

Re: MIDI keyboards?

Hi Niels. I'm a bit confused by your link. have you actually got jackd running in rpi? I've not been able to get it to run at all using the inbuilt sound device. I've done some stuff with Fluidsynth (qsynth command line only) and amsynth you can see here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.p...

Re: Packages from debian you want to see in raspbian reposit

I'd like to see supercollider for my ongoing rpi synth project. supercollider-doc, supercollider-common, supercollider-vim and supercollider-emacs are there but they don't install.

Re: RPi Drum Machine with Hydrogen

You might need to edit your ~/.asoundrc to include emulated mmap support see here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=139940#p139940 have you tried loading one of the demo tracks and playing it? if it works then the issue might be with connecting the DM10 to hydrogen. However given you...

Re: Raspberry Pi based Synthesizer

To add to the excitement I installed and ran amsynth (in the repos). Good news! it works, Bad News! it's incredibly laggy. Also it will max out the CPU quickly and with hilarious consequences. You might get away with just using pad sounds if you keep the polyphony down to about 4 or 5. This is on a ...

Re: RPi Synth?

I've set up my rpi with fluidsynth and an Alesis Q49 usb keyboard and it works pretty well.

quick details over here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 08#p141908

I've not got Bristol to work on Alsa only though. for some reason it can't open the device.

Re: Raspberry Pi based Synthesizer

I've had some success with fluidsynth which uses old Soundblaster soundfonts and an Alesis Q49 keyboard you need to run Fluidsynth using alsa only, as jack can't run on the existing sound device, and have a soundfont that's probably not more than 40MB but it's pretty straightforward. once you've apt...
