How to set up midi controller (Solved)

Post by londrioca » Sat May 19, 2018 2:14 pm

Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon
M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 keyboard
Asus laptop

Can anyone explain in step by step idiot-proof English how to get sounds from this keyboard? I have installed QJackCtl, QSynth, Patchage, PianoBooster, Timidity, Bristol, & Googled till I'm blue in the face but still can't get anything to work. Thanks

Hi londrioca. This is something I've been struggling with a bit myself. May I suggest you install Yoshimi via the Software Manager. I've had success getting great sounds with this, but still can't figure out how to record what I'm playing. At least it is a start.

If Yoshimi doesn't automatically find your keyboard (can't remember), aconnect -i in the terminal will show you. Here's mine:

Code: Select all

scott@scott-HP ~ $ aconnect -i
client 0: 'System' [type=kernel]
    0 'Timer           '
    1 'Announce        '
client 14: 'Midi Through' [type=kernel]
    0 'Midi Through Port-0'
    1 'Midi Through Port-1'
    2 'Midi Through Port-2'
    3 'Midi Through Port-3'
client 28: 'AKM320' [type=kernel]
    0 'AKM320 MIDI 1   '
Now I'd know AKM320 is what I'd put in Yoshimi > Settings > Alsa tab > Alsa Midi Source

Hope that helps.

Fell at the first hurdle:

aconnect -i found the keyboard:

    0 'Timer           '
    1 'Announce        '

Sorry. Always hurdles with this stuff. First, it looks like Yoshimi is trying to use JACK instead of Alsa. On the Alsa tab, make sure the little boxed is ticked for "Set as preferred MIDI" I've had lots of struggles with JACK and find Alsa much easier to work with. See if that gets you past those errors.

On the same tab, Keystation Mini 32 goes in the box for Alsa Midi Source.

Still on the same tab, default in the next box, and a check in the box after that.

After making those changes (and clicking Save and Close) you need to restart Yoshimi.

Aye there's the rub, I can't even open Yoshimi to change anything.

Okay. Try in the terminal yoshimi -a

WOW. It should not be this difficult!

Lets try a different tack. Open QJackCtl, then click on Start. If no trouble there, then try opening Yoshimi. If that works, then apply the Yoshimi settings I mentioned.

Good luck.

Damn. I'm sorry, but I'm at a loss at the moment. Did I mention that I hate JACK?

You may want to click stop in QJackCtl or it might interfere with other sounds on your system. In fact you might even need to stop and start pulseaudio to get back to normal.

If/when I come up with other ideas I'll let you know.

Well, while I didn't come with anything on my own, I did look at the first review in the Software Manager for Qjackctl that says this:
1. In Synaptic, install jack, jackd, qsynth and qjackctl; 2. In Qsynth, click Setup -> Soundfonts -> Open and add the sf2 file in /usr/share/sounds/sf2 (In my install, it was TimGM6mb.sf2); Click 'Yes' to restart the engine; 3. Plug in your USB midi controller; 4. Open Qjackctl, click Connect; Select the ALSA tab, drag your midi controller to FluidSynth; Then I was able to play music
While it's old, maybe follow that and see what happens?

Re: How to set up midi controller

Post by londrioca » Sun May 20, 2018 6:31 am

I had these installed & that's basically what I tried at first but as soon as I open QSync I get error message:

Code: Select all

Qsynth1: Failed to create the audio driver (jack). 
Cannot continue without it.
Nevertheless I add the soundfont I have FluidR3_GS.fs2 but when I click 'Start' the error message reappears.

If I carry on and open QJackctl/Connect/Alsa then Fluidsynth doesn't appear, the options are 14:Midi Through and 24:Keystation Mini 32 which appear in both windows. No permutation of connections has any effect.

Meanwhile QSync Messages shows:

I suspect the answer lies in QJackctl/Setup/Settings but where to start?

I also tried opening Qsync then in Setup/Midi changed Midi driver to alsa_seq, in Setup/Audio changed Audio Driver to alsa & added the sound font (i.e. ignored Jack) but still nothing. QSync messages:

Re: How to set up midi controller

Post by MrEen » Sun May 20, 2018 12:37 pm

Okay. It looks to me like the JACK server is not starting and this page has some ideas to try.

I know at one time I used the answer that has all the pictures showing where to make changes, but don't remember if it helped me or not (my settings are back to default now.) So start with the accepted answer first (the one with the green checkmark next to it) and if that doesn't help, then try the other one.

Good luck!

I seem to have solved the problem by using yet another program LMMS which I hadn't heard of until I stumbled on this Youtube tutorial:

Just installed it from Synaptic and It worked out of the box!

Congrats londrioca!

I have also used LMMS somewhat successfully (much more so than Ardour.) Your topic also spurred me on to get recording figured out and I'm slowly getting there, so thanks for that.

Have fun!
