Hi Malte,

I have been doing some more work recently on the minicomputer port, and I
have a few questions/ problems:

1. I can't get minicomputer to make any sound. I start the CPU and the gui
up fine, connect them to midi in and audio out in qjackctl, and play
something, and there is no sound. Are the default settings supposed to be
silent? If so, what should I change to get some sound?

2. Could you give me a brief explanation of what is controlled by OSC and
what is controlled by MIDI? Also, there are two different jack MIDI input
ports for the two programs (minicomputer and minicomputerCPU). Do these
work differently? How so?

Jeremy

assigning the notes to synth engines. =A0I think perhaps the best way
would be to have one set of settings for *all* copies of the synth
engine, and if you want different settings, then you'd have to create
another copy of the plugin.

Yes, each voice has a different sound and response to a fixed midichannel, =
1 for the first, 2 for the second voice and so on...

Actually I find it rather interesting to have different settings between au=

even would become more alive.
But yes, for the average usage it would be great to just copy the settings =
across the voices.
The channel stealing algorhythm kept me from implementing polyphony so far,=
got to study that...

A while ago I was against the idea of plugins but actually find it now usef=
ull for recalling sessions. It would be great to stuff PD, Csound or AlsaMo=
dularSynth into a sequencer. So far I know that you can create LADSPA plugs=
with Faust and Csound but instruments??

Cheers,

Malte
