Has MIDI changed in AVL2018?
« on: May 08, 2018, 03:23:28 PM »
Hi all,

I'm really stoked on the new version of AVL, but there is a major issue for me. Under AVL2017 I could use my Nektar P6 with Bitwig Studio and all it's deep integration features. Then with a clean install of AVL2018 (plus copying the necessary scripts for the P6) this doesn't work anymore. I even had issues getting the P6 to be recognised in Ardour. I tried both ALSA and Jack to no avail.

So I reinstalled AVL2017 again, copied the P6 scripts, and everything works like a charm. I'm no n00b at setting up Jack and ALSA but can't figure this one out. Any ideas??  :blank:

I don't have that midi controller but I understand it needs scripts for integration (googled a bit)
So, is Nektar recognized as a midi controller in AV2018 ?

Hi,

Nothing has changed intentionally regarding MIDI, I'm sure JACK2 has been updated via the repositories since AVL 2017, it is possible something may have changed in the latest JACK2... My MIDI keyboard still works as expected, is it possible if JACK2 changed that the Nektar scripts need updating?

Thanks for the replies... I will give 2018 another try, perhaps I'll see something this time that I had missed last time and I will post back when I have it working!

Cheers.

I have AVL2018 running in a VM, with Bitwig installed. I pass my P6 over USB into the VM and everything is working fine. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong before but it should work! I'll try again with a real install. Thanks guys.
