I do understand what you mean by satisfying libraries to compile, it becomes tyring, at the start of a new fresh installation there is always a lot of dependency problems that must be satisfied to compile software, the advantage is that the more development libraries are installed the better your machine becomes to compile software, and the libraries don't even take up so much space. Now, something quite important, if you don't have your terminal window maximized full size , it's a good idea to do it now, since going into the configuration, it's best to view in a maximized terminal or things will look tight. Please check the messages window for more info. Double-click the instrument of your choice to open it in the Beat+Baseline Editor. My own software, though, is even more custom, and I'll gladly share it with you. You can google up later how to enable sudo in Debian. If you are new to this I strongly recommend to stick to the same kernel versions I am pointing you to in this guide for ease and understanding, in the future you are free to experiment: - First of all you have to download the linux kernel and the Real Time patch by Ingo Molnar that corresponds to the same kernel version.
Without the custom software, the same functionality would require more expensive hardware. Anyway, just thought I'd post these bits here in case anyone else runs into the same problems. Are you able to find and install recent versions of pro audio packages or other kind of software in Debian easily, without going crazy with literally hundreds of dependencies and file to install manually? For me, it was totally plug-and-play, even back in the Ardour 2. Tech Tip: If you are having trouble deciding which is the right driver, try the. Still thanks for your comment, we'll see what can be done. Please let me know thanks Dimitri I am not sure what was the problem, basicly I just kept on trying until it got working, so if anybody is interested, this is my setup I hope I didnt forgot on something : On the blacklist. However, Rosegarden with LilyPond can.
I'm going to reinstall an Ubuntu Studio latest version system in dual boot with windows 7. Pierre Couderc pierre at couderc. Like Yomguy, I'm going to try to get through the other 'setup' options and see how the device goes. Dimitri Hello Joe, i'm struggling with the operations of installation on linux. I'm starting to be desperate, thinking of why did I buy that tricky mashine.
Chefs and mechanics don't have these problems, though, because what they do is very different from software development. I'll give your blog a good look. Hello Austin, thx for your comments. A possible 'gotcha' is that Fast Track replaces your sound card or on-board sound system, so you need to plug a couple of speakers into the interface. I had tried your config and was able to get sound into audacity through the device.
I did read the error messages you got during kernel compile, I will see in a few days exactly what could be wrong or different. I don't have time for further testing on other distros like ubuntu, I have to focus on my music, so if I got it working finally under Debian, then that's why this guide is written for Debian. My real problem is that my card is recognized as 2 devices in Jack. On the back the soundcard is connected alone in one of 3 groups, then in the rest of groups there are wireless mouse usb key, usb wired keyboard. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Just try whatever you feel more comfty with and that it works. I suppose it could depend on some bugs because they're not the latest version and also Ardour 2 is an old version. I'm starting to feel really disappointed and discouraged by this operating system. Hello Dimitri, unfortunately I don't use Rakarrack, so I have not had this type of dependency problems myself. Yes, I know, I perfectly understand. But this fails with a fatal error number of devices doesn't match number of screens -- tried various combinations of monitors plugged in or not Do you have any advice on building an Xorg. Hi Joe, and thanks for making this guide.
Rosegarden and Ardour didn't throw up any errors at all, they just failed to capture or transmit any audio to or from the Fast Track. Is it just me, or is it currently impossible to stop it routing directly from the inputs to the outputs in Linux? You still might have to compile a few things maybe more with stable release. The KeyStudio keyboard is well made, with 49 full-size, touch-sensitive keys. To be able to capture 24bit with it under linux you will have to patch and compile your own kernel and do some tweaking. Hello Dimitri, the version of Debian should suffice, it will automatically upgrade to 6. Many people feel pressured with newer versions of things and feel the urge to upgrade to run the latest.
Those control the internal routing. Now cd with your terminal still as root where you saved it and do: chown root fast-track-pro. I just use the fast track ultra 8r to record multiple channels with jack and ardour without doing anything with the outputs, but I want to listen to what I'm recording through the headphone jacks on the front. Out of the three, Audacity was the only one that gave any indication that something was wrong, telling us to check our interface settings whenever we attempted recording. Whether you have basic on-board sound or a surround sound card for gaming, inputs are usually limited to line-in and microphone jacks. And not too long ago people owned slaves. Do you honestly believe mAudio software authors are any more evil than a chef, secretary, or mechanic? I haven't tested what this does with the output jacks on the back, but I would recommend anyone with issues to give patchage a try.
To get all the input channels to the headphones, all I do is use patchage to connect all of the inputs directly to output 1 and to output 2. If you feel like typing the code yourself, go ahead, but do recheck that you are typing everything just as is provided in this guide. Yes, I have been checking often but seems like no one could really chime in and help, it's not so much that they don't want to help, but it's more like they can't seem to find a good solution, since you did put good info on all the tweaks and configurations, so I guess they also don't have good ideas. Now you just have to adjust most of the faders to zero in cli alsamixer this is done by pressing end. Only problem was the routing problem described in this thread, and here's how I solved it was actually really easy! Dimitri Hello Joe, i'm at the step 8: after to have give the 2 command line, i got a behaviour a little different. But it doesn't seem to work that way. Also, the -j flag didn't work for me to set the concurrency level.
