Summary: A Qt application to control FluidSynth
Kits Are Go (And Ego Needs a Manual Bump)An update on kits and how to manually update to ego-1.1.3-r3 (required steps for some)
Kits are Go (Switch to Them!)Kits are now the official way we do things at Funtoo.
Funtoo-Stable Going AwayAs we move towards the next generation of Funtoo Linux, funtoo-stable is being retired.
qsynth is a qt fluid synth front end. It's a midi piano program to make sounds.
# emerge qsynth fluid-soundfont
sound fonts are located:
- setup > midi tab > midi driver > alsa_seq
- setup > audio tab > audio driver > jack
- setup > soundfonts tab > open > load in /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2
restart qsynth as root, connect keyboard via qjackctl connect dialogs, and you're ready to play.
the channels button is where you configure what sound font bank is playing, and on which channel. ie piano channel 1 harpsichord channel 2.
as this is an audio program we wish to enable real time priorities:
#echo "@audio - rtprio 99" >> /etc/security/limits.conf
