AV Linux / No sound from M-Audio Keystation 61 II and ZynAddSubFX
« Last post by hawran.diskuse on March 17, 2018, 04:08:36 PM »
Hi guys,
sorry for my ignorance, I've done a lot of googling, in vain.

I am not able to connect my M-Audio Keystation 61 midi controller to the ZynAddSubFX applications to produce any sound.
It (the controller) works with Qsynth.
It works in windows.

IMHO, I would say that (not small) part of the problem is a lack of proper documentation, I have found some info on youtube, on some blogs, etc, however some of them seems to me quite contradictory, as some settings work for one man and other for the second one.
Mainly - there is not a documentation for QjackCtl (at least I have not found any) here, describing controls within the app's GUI and saying some "HOWTO" sentences, for instance "If you want do plug in a midi driver, you have to set up this, this and this, because this, this and this...".
Simply 'a list of steps to achieve something'.

And because I do not want criticise only, I would like to say I am willing to write some documentation, if I gather some useful info...

PS And thank you for, it seems to to solve my problems with using jackd and firefox (youtube) simultaneously. (I'll check it tomorrow.)
AV Linux / Re: New version of AV Linux will have a newer kernel?

Latest kernels do support AMD gpus ,but beside compatibility none help for video editing.
Last time I checked there wasn’t any video editor supporting efficiently gpu acceleration  :(

Hi everyone!

Thanks for the feedback so far, I have implemented some of the suggestions already.  I have actually done a lot more work and have clarified a lot about installing and the really good news is after a lot of testing UEFI install with Systemback is working reliably now!!

Will post a draft 2 soon!
And from me also kudo's.
I can understand everything what is written....and english is not my first language.

Hi Gmaq,

Unless I am mistaken, as of Linux kernel 4.10 and up, there is more support for AMD GPU drivers. This does not matter if you are running the proprietary driver, in which case pro companies use CentOS as an OS, which runs some old kernels. Take note that companies like DaVinci Resolve can be run on CentOS. But the open drivers do require the newer kernels. That said, the newer kernels don't do much for video editing. It helps some games run nicely, but video editing or running Blender, pffff. However, this SGFXI looks interesting! I have had miserable luck installing AMD GPU Pro, hopefull SGFXI will change that! I am eager to makle another go at video editing on Linux.

We already have KPTI patched kernels in the kernel repository and we will remain with a 4.9 based KPTI security patched kernel..

The 'quality' of the Video drivers really has little to do with the kernel and everything to do with the Xorg Video drivers provided by Debian, you can install any kernel you like in AV Linux but you are still going to get the Debian Xorg drivers, the only option for change and improved support on with some Video cards with proprietary 3rd party drivers... and yes AV Linux will support installation of proprietary 3rd party Video Drivers when using it's optional 'lowlatency' kernel, and also UEFI boot will now be supported for 64bit only..

A sneak peek of the Proprietary Video drivers section in the DRAFT manual will give more info (be aware there has been much updated since this draft was released)

Last time I asked, I was told that the next version of AV LInux will use the Debian 4.9 kernel. However, with all the Spectre et al stuff going down, it looks like a lot of distros are jumping kernels to mitigate the issue. Will the next AV Linux follow suit? If so, also a request for better AMD GPU drivers, if possible, via Mesa or whathaveyou. It would be nice if the proprietary drivers can work, but that is probably asking wayyyy to much.

OK i should have known that ... thank you for your replies! However, I gave up on this project now, reactivated my 9yr old Mac and am using Ardour on that machine now. I switched to Linux when Ardour on Linux had ver.3.5, with MIDI and everything, and the Mac version was stuck at 2.8 for something like three years so I decided to give it a try. I now installed a minimal debian (240 MB or something) and run that in text mode, just to learn about this strange but fascinating OS that is Linux. My music happens still on Ardour, but on a Mac now. Once that machine gets too old, I'll part with my FW device and get a USB one in stead.
Hey there Glen,
I took a look through the manual and everything looks pretty good to me! It was easy enough to follow and I felt like things were explained pretty well; I could follow a specific task step-by-step without any question as to what I was doing.

Thanks for everything you and the rest of the AVL team do to keep this project going!!
