Low-Polyphony MIDI Equipment Debian Recording Workaround

In other words, this is a method for avoiding dropped notes using Debian GNU/Linux for multi-track recording by keeping everything in-sync with JACK-transport. First, it's a good idea to boot a low-latency kernel when dealing with music, so if you have a 64-bit (amd64-compatible) processor, I sugges...

Re: Qmidiroute patched for some GS use

I had a fairly hard time installing this on another debian machine of mine today, so I feel obligated to tell anyone trying this for themselves the steps I took: In a terminal, go to the directory the patches were downloaded to cd ~/Downloads/ Become root: su & enter your root password or sudo su & ...

Re: Physical Quest Studios CDs and lossless digital preservation

(PS - Really enjoying the interview you recently did with the Space Quest Historian!) Thanks for mentioning that, goatmeal1! Since reading your post this evening, I've watched all 4 available so far, finding them quite fascinating. Hah, I wondered if anyone would've seen that. We talked for 5 hours...

Re: New lossless FLAC recordings of MIDI soundtracks

You're welcome and I'm glad you may find a use. Yeah, recordings can take a lot of time and effort, so I understand life's juggled priorities.

Re: New lossless FLAC recordings of MIDI soundtracks

Anyone experienced with editing MIDI files who can either fix some things for me or teach me how to address it myself? The easiest way for me to record soundtracks is to play the "Complete Soundtrack" versions. These sometimes have pieces included that Tom didn't provide separately. However, some o...

Re: ALSA hardware input of SysEx is being separated into 256 byte chunks

After not finding anything quickly about solving the issue via the linux kernel (although that's probably the best course to take), I just decided to fix split SysEx messages by concatenation within qmidiroute: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17790&p=18491#p18491

Re: I'm writing a book!

Can't say I blame you. Facebook is unfortunately where most Sierra discussion happens now.. :( Ah, well it's nice there's more discussion somewhere. I may check into it, but I feel plenty busy as-is. While I haven't looked at costing yet, I'm going to predict it won't be an expensive book. I mean, ...

Re: I'm writing a book!

Thanks for the replies, guys. Slightly more detailed post this time. (BTW, Jaffa, Gary, are you on Facebook?) Yes, but I don't login often, as I prefer the relative feeling of freedom of regular forums. :) Given the recent proliferation of books on Sierra topics, I thought of telling a story that h...

ALSA hardware input of SysEx is being separated into 256 byte chunks

I've noticed an issue with my Edirol USB MIDI interfaces, or their Linux kernel modules: SysEx messages longer than 256 bytes read from MIDI input (and perhaps output, but that seems impossible to tell) are split into 256 byte chunks. /sys/module/snd_seq_midi/parameters/input_buffer_size & output_bu...

Re: I'm writing a book!

It's not everyday that a book that so perfectly matches my esoteric interests gets written. That's not to say that it wouldn't be fun for general audiences too. I'm looking forward to it, thanks!
