inahdhey all, i am having a problem where configuring sound to work in jack has caused it to stop working elsewhere12:36
inahdi am using an ice1712 soundcard, and think the problem lies with pulseaudio12:37
inahdis there some way to configure pulseaudio to perhaps recognize the change to and from jack?12:39
brian_Does anyone know how to connect MIDI using Ubuntu Studio?12:49
inahdlike a midi keyboard?12:50
inahdwhat do you want to connect it to?12:52
brian_Ardour looks like a good program. I am very new to Ubuntu Studio and Ubuntu in general, but it looks like it has a lot of features.12:53
inahdtotally, well i assume you would like to connect the keyboard to a synth program, then route the sound into a track in ardour?12:53
brian_Yes that is right thank  you very much for your help.12:54
inahdbasically you wil accomplish this through jack:12:54
brian_ok, one sec, let me open jack.12:54
inahdin the alsa tab, your device should be listed12:55
inahdthen when you open a synth program (like qsynth), you should be able to connect the two12:55
brian_I don't see alsa.12:56
inahdit will be in the connections window12:56
brian_ok I found it12:56
brian_Ok I clicked connect.12:57
inahdare you connecting it to qsynth?12:57
brian_Not yet, one sec.12:57
brian_Where is qsynth on Ubuntu Studio, do you need to download it?12:58
inahdwell im not sure its there... maybe fluidsynth or something12:58
inahdany spnth program12:59
brian_Ok I will find it.12:59
brian_Not seeing anything that says "synth" How do I send you a screnshot so that you can see what I see?13:01
inahdhang on let me look13:01
brian_bingo, I found qsynth?13:01
brian_I found it.13:02
brian_Ok how do you connect qsynth?13:03
inahdso yeah open it and connect in alsa tab13:03
inahdassuming the midi device is showing there as well13:03
inahdmidi on the left, qsynth on the right13:03
inahdthen, you need to load soundfonts in qsynth probably13:04
brian_oh how do you do that?13:04
inahdthen select the channel you want to play... and all that13:04
inahdthen you route qsynth to the ardour channel you would like to record on13:05
brian_ok I see Restart, Panic, Reset, Channels,Setup, Then some Reverb menus, and Chorus Menus. Then quit, options, Messages, about.13:05
inahdsetup will have a tab for loading soundfonts13:06
inahdif your midi is connected to qsynth, you will see a green light turn on when you press a key13:06
brian_Ok it is not connected yet.13:07
inahdis it connected in the alsa tab?13:07
brian_the screen is blank13:07
inahdwhat screen is blank?13:08
brian_It says SFID Name Offset13:08
brian_then below it is blank.13:08
brian_oh wait maybe it is connected- did you mean a green light on the MIDI device?13:09
inahdno, on the main screen of qsynth13:10
brian_ok no, not yet.13:10
brian_also the MIDI device menu is greyed out.13:11
inahdin qsynth?13:11
inahdis midi input enabled?13:12
brian_but the MIDI Device tab is blank and greyed out.13:12
brian_This is under the MIDI tab.13:13
inahdoh thats fine i think13:13
inahdmidi driver selected?13:13
brian_there is an open tab under soundfonts, should we try that?13:14
inahdyes, load the soundfonts13:14
brian_ok now I see FluidR3_GM.sf2 and TimGM6mb.sf213:15
inahdyes the fluid file13:15
inahdload it13:15
brian_Ok it's loaded.13:16
brian_I still don't see a green light though.13:17
brian_I think we are getting close however.13:17
inahdis jack actually running? did it start13:17
brian_After I clicked on the connect button it greyed out.13:18
inahdbut in jack main window, did you click start?13:18
brian_oh! no, I don't think I did, one sec.13:19
brian_Where do you find start?13:19
brian_I see it, but it's greyed out.13:19
inahdso then its probably started13:20
brian_hmm, this is  a puzzle.13:21
inahdit always is13:21
inahddon't know what to tell you13:22
brian_Ok well you really tried hard to help me. I appreciate all of your efforts.13:23
inahdyou might have to fiddle with the channels or something, select another sound. though that green light on the bottom left of qsynth should be lighting up at this point13:23
brian_I don't even see the green light, maybe I just need to look for it.13:24
inahdit turns on when you press keys13:24
inahdits a small black circle next to the qsynth1 tab in the bottom left of qsynth13:25
brian_ok I see that.13:25
brian_But it hasn't turned green yet.13:25
inahdif it doesnt light up, it means your midi keyboard isn't communicating with qsynth properly13:26
inahdit only lights up when the keys are pressed13:26
brian_I am using wine13:26
inahdprobably means that something is wrong in jack13:26
inahdwine for what?13:26
brian_the MIDI software, do you think that makes a difference? I have MIDI uno13:27
inahdi dont know what that is13:27
brian_Ok wine helps Ubuntu run windows software.13:27
inahdi mean the midi uno13:28
brian_ok it is a cable connecting the keyboard to the computer.13:29
inahdyou shouldn't need wine for that13:29
brian_There is a green light for it that does turn on when I press keys.13:29
inahdis my guess13:29
inahdin the wine software?13:29
inahdor the keyboard?13:30
brian_no on the cable.13:30
inahdmy only guess is that you aren't connecting the keyboard to qsynth properly in jack13:31
brian_well it didn't used to turn on so I think we got somewhere.13:32
brian_There is a setting we might work with in Jack.13:33
brian_It says 14: MIDI Through. I think it came with Alsa.13:33
inahdno thats not what you want13:33
brian_My midi interface says 24:USB Uno MIDI Interface.13:34
brian_yes how do you remove that?13:34
inahdyou dont13:34
inahdbut its not what you connect to qsynth13:34
brian_do you connect Ardour to qsynth?13:35
inahdany other options, on the left side of the alsa tab?13:35
brian_yes, 128:ardour.13:35
brian_I don't think it is connected.13:36
brian_And one the right hand side there is 130:fluidsynth.13:36
inahdthere should be one for your midi keyboard on the left13:36
inahdtry plugging it in again?13:37
brian_it's greyed out.13:37
inahdwhat about in jack settings... selecting a midi device13:37
inahdi have 'seq' selected13:37
brian_Maybe, where do you find jack settings?13:38
inahdsetup button, settings tab13:38
inahdon the bottom right of the settings tab is a midi device option13:39
brian_ok I see usr, share, sounds, sf213:40
brian_on my left, nothing on my right.13:40
brian_under sounds there is alsa, freedesktop,gnome,opl3,sf2 and ubuntustudio.13:41
inahdare you in the qsynth setup?13:43
inahdcheck the jack setup13:43
inahdthere is a settings tab13:43
inahdon the bottom right is midi device13:43
brian_found it, it says seq.13:43
inahdwell i am out of ideas13:44
brian_Ok. again, thanks for everything.13:44
inahdmaybe someone else can offer you better help13:44
inahddont give up!13:44
brian_take care, I am sure that I will see yo again sometime.13:45
inahdcan anyone help me bring up seq24 in the alsa tab of jack?13:47
inahdstarting it with --manual_alsa_ports used to work for me13:47
khazHi guys, I'm new to Ubuntu Studio (13.04) and I have a problem playing audio/video files when my Rocksmith cable is plugged in. How can I use my cable and play files at the same time?15:54
khazand the computer becomes quite unresponsive when I just  yank it out. I need to reboot now I guess16:00
zequencekhaz: What are you using it with? jack?16:01
khazSo anyone knows?16:10
DarkErakhaz, zequence asked before you went for a reboot: What are you using it with? jack?16:14
khazjack and rakarrack16:14
khaz(I'm quite new to this whole music with computers)16:16
khazbut even when jack is not started, simply having the cable plugged in bar any multimedia file to play16:17
zequencekhaz: Probably you need to use both your internal card and the cable at the same time with jack16:45
zequencekhaz: I don't know much about that myself, but you could ask about it on #jack16:45
khazthank you16:45
zequencemaybe len-k knows?16:45
Chrono_What is jackd2?18:49
Chrono_I am receiving a option if I want to enable realtime process priority18:49
Chrono_anyone there?18:52
holsteinChrono_: hello..19:11
holsteinChrono_: do you need JACK? if you are not using it, i wouldnt bother installing it19:11
Chrono_ah, heya holstein19:11
holsteinenabling "realtime priority" is just that... if you are going to use JACK, for low latency audio, you would want to enable JACK for realtime process19:12
holsteinthere is no reason to not setup jack for realtime19:12
Chrono_ah ok, just installed 12.04, new to linux, watched a video on it and it seems a lot of the applications are a bit out of date19:12
holsteinif you are not running jack, it is not running.. so by selecting "set up with realtime" you are not harming anything19:13
holsteinChrono_: 12.04 is from april.. 201219:13
zequenceWell, strictly speaking, there is no reason not to enable realtime for jack, unless you are worried about very unlikely security concerns19:13
holsteinthe ".04" is april.. the "12" is 201219:13
zequenceThat is the only reason the user is asked about it19:13
holsteinthe applications are from that time19:13
holsteinChrono_: if you want newer packages, get the newer release19:13
holsteinChrono_: i think you will find there is nothing too far out of date about 12.0419:14
zequenceBut, answering yes while installing jackd is only one half of the enablement. User also needs to be a part of audio group19:14
Chrono_how does changing versions with linux work?19:19
Chrono_does it require a full reinstall?  (going from 12.04 to 13.04?19:19
holsteinChrono_: you can upgrade.. or just reinstall19:19
holsteinChrono_: i find, an upgrade takes a few hours.. and an install takes about 15 minutes.. so i usually just keep my data backed up, and do fresh installs19:20
Chrono_ah ok19:20
holsteinChrono_: you can also say "i find the version of x out of date in ubuntustudio 12.04" and we could discuss what that means, and how to "fix" that19:20
holstein!ppa | Chrono_19:20
ubottuChrono_: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge19:20
Chrono_I have much to learn :-p19:21
holstein^^ using ppa's is an easy way to add newer versions of packages, or packages that are *not* in the default repositories.. though, there can be issues (breakages, and since we dont provide the packages, we cant provide support)19:21
holsteinOR, we can talk about officially backporting.. such as backporting fixes, or backporting things like ardour3 to 12.04 (which i dont think is going to specifically happen)19:22
holsteinOR, in the case of ardour, you can go to the ardour site and download ardour3 (like i personally did for my 12.04 main studio rig)19:23
Chrono_as a new user to linux, would you recommend I stay on 12 or go to 13?19:24
holsteinChrono_: i would recommend you look at your personal needs and decide what you want/need19:25
holsteinthere is no real compelling reason to strongly do either over the other19:25
ubottuUbuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) is the current !LTS release of Ubuntu.  Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/120419:26
ubottuUbuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) is the current release of Ubuntu. Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04/ - Release notes: http://ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/13.0419:26
holsteinthe LTS, 12.04 version is supported for longer, and is stable, and the audio packages are older, but they are not drastically out of date19:26
holstein13.04 is stable too, however.. but it will not be suppoted as long..19:27
holsteini have 12.04 installed from 2012.. if i were installing a fresh rig today, i would probably go with 13.04.. since i will be installing 14.04 for sure19:27
holsteinChrono_: try them both live19:28
holsteininstall them both.. dual boot19:28
Chrono_I have ran ubuntu 13.04 but didnt like how amazon is part of the OS (not sure what the studio version is like)19:29
Chrono_I want an OS, not a shopping center :-p19:29
holsteinChrono_: sure19:29
holsteinChrono_: you are search about how to remove that, if you dont want it. or use a different DE, launcher, or software center/package manager.. or different distro19:30
holsteinyou can*19:30
holsteinyou can check out most of the linux distros live these days.. i usually just try them out before installing19:31
zequenceChrono_: It's very easy to disable that in Unity19:56
zequenceChrono_: I mean, the Amazon search results19:56
zequenceBut, what I find much more bothering is that your searches are being sent to Canonical19:57
zequenceAlso that can be disabled19:57
zequenceNone of these exist on Ubuntu Studio though19:57
Chrono_good, that was my concern, is my privacy at risk19:57
zequenceOn Unity, you can just go to System Settings -> Privacy19:57
zequenceFrom there you can disable both19:57
zequenceWe are thinking of adding Unity as one choice for Ubuntu Studio, but with these things disabled19:58
Chrono_I'm looking at a large range of distro's, im a big time gamer and I know linux is limited, so I want to use linux for music and 3D Rendering19:59
Chrono_Life for me has become a bit stagmid and decided to try something new19:59
