I have been struggling to get up to speed on all the choices available to me
for sound and midi in the linux world. Now that I have found this list, maybe
I can get speed up a little. Here are a few midi setup questions that if
answered will get me quite a bit further along the way. Here is my setup.
Creative PCI128 sound card with joystick cable adapter for external midi
external old hardware based synths (dx7, tx81z, Roland GR-50)
external Mac running mastertracks pro (until I get my linux setup working)
So far I can play wav etc with xmms.
I have gotten aRts to produce sound but now have the artsserver turned off
Timidity++ can play midi files
with an acontrol -i 64:0 128:0 command, I can use the external sequencer to
play through Timidity -iA (alsa server)
What I cant figure out how to do is to have Jazz++, brahms, or MusE play
#2 - There doesn't seem to be tempo controls in timidity other than a command
line, is this correct? Jazz++ does have tempo and I'm not sure about brahms
#3 - In mastertracks, I could loop a section of a sequence just by clicking a
checkbox. I can't seem to find anything like that in any of the sequencer
programs I have looked at so far for linux.
