Total newbie here. How do I access jack settings? do I go to the terminal prompt and input some code to pull up Jack setting? Sorry for the lame question I just need a little guidance. Thanks in advance
So I had some time to play around tonight. The am synth is crackling bad and creating lots of x runs. I attempted to change to p 128 as suggested but when I tried to ssh I I was met with a demand for a password. blokaslabs didnt do the trick! anybody any other suggestions? Im running the beta image modep
Thanks for the help and patience. I finally got some time to relook at this. I was able to change the settings as suggested. Initially this causes my unit to become very noisy but after a power cycle the issue seems to have gone away. I looked at the am synth again and it still crakles badly when used in conjunction with the x42 midi sequencer. Lots of xruns and very high cpu usage. Is this normal behaviour for poly synth like this? Other reverb and speaker emulation sounded good with no crackling
Ha! Just tried my MODEP setup again in preparation for this weekend’s Raspberry Jam (at Canadian Museum of Science & Technology). Not getting any glitch. So it must have been some other part of my setup. Sorry about that. And thank you for that card!
Thanks I wasn’t sure if that incorporated into the modep image. I’ve tried that with a raspbian image and it worked perfectly. I must have my timing slightly out on this. I haven’t run the config script with modep as I presumed that the pisound was configured with mkdep because the button works without havin to run the curl but now I know how to ssh I’ll try to run that script to config from terminal and see
Actually it’s not based on the number of blinks, but the seconds that have passed. The MIDI LEDs should be blinking once per second.
I have just noticed that 4.14 kernel introduces a timing issue for the MIDI LED blinking - there’s random delays happening when attempting to signal a blink to the kernel module. The very latest 4.9 version does not have this issue. (Opened an issue here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2412)
The Beta MODEP image is based on 4.9 kernel, so the LEDs should be blinking consistently, unless you have manually updated the kernel using sudo rpi-update.
