MIDI on HP Mini 1001
« on: September 29, 2012, 12:41:44 AM »
I've just finalized setting up ALSA MIDI + fluidsynth for Frescobaldi ... perhaps this setup script will be useful in the future.

DLT

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
# dentonlt, 20120929
# set up and start music notation software

EXT="alsa
frescobaldi"

echo "${EXT}" |
while read FILE; do
echo "LOADING ${FILE} ..."
tce-load -i /tce/"${FILE}"
done

# set up kernel midi module
sudo modprobe snd_seq

# install fluidsynth
FSYNTH_SOUNDFONT="/home/tc/.local/bin/resources/pats/2MBGMGS/2MBGMGS.SF2"
fluidsynth -i -s -aalsa -o audio.alsa.device=default ${FSYNTH_SOUNDFONT} &

#alternatively, use qsynth instead of fluidsynth
# qsynth -a alsa &

sleep 2 # wait for fluidsynth to create ports

# connect standard through port (IN) to fluidsynth (OUT). This is probably not the easiest way, but it works.
THROUGH="`aconnect -i | grep "Midi Through" | cut -f 2 -d ' '`"
FLUID="`aconnect -o | grep "FLUID Synth" | cut -f 2 -d ' '`"
[ "${THROUGH}" ] && [ "${FLUID}" ] && aconnect ${THROUGH}0 ${FLUID}0

# start notation editor
frescobaldi
