aaa, i succeeded in connecting my midi keyboard to bristol synth.

when i connect it, /dev/midi1 file is created.

qjackctl does not work in my windowmaker — when i start it, whole windowmaker hungs unless i don’t kill the process from pure terminal or via ssh.

so without jack, just alsa:

startBristol  -mini -audio alsa -midi alsa -channel 1 -mididev /dev/midi1

now it is necessary to connect midi keyboard’s output to bristol’s input:

client 20: ‘Impulse’ [type=kernel,card=1] 0 ‘Impulse MIDI 1 ‘ Connecting To: 128:0 1 ‘Impulse MIDI 2 ‘ client 128: ‘/dev/midi1’ [type=user,pid=11247] 0 ‘/dev/midi1 input’


connecting:

aconnect 20:0 128:0


works:

noch@hactar ~ $ aconnect -l client 0: ‘System’ [type=kernel] 0 ‘Timer ‘ 1 ‘Announce ‘ client 14: ‘Midi Through’ [type=kernel] 0 ‘Midi Through Port-0’ client 20: ‘Impulse’ [type=kernel,card=1] 0 ‘Impulse MIDI 1 ‘ Connecting To: 128:0 1 ‘Impulse MIDI 2 ‘ client 128: ‘/dev/midi1’ [type=user,pid=11247] 0 ‘/dev/midi1 input’ Connected From: 20:0 noch@hactar ~ $ ```

now i can play on midi keyboard and get sounds of moog mini. aaa.

found this accidentally today. i have been written this back in 2001. first and only try to make my own “something like music” so far. the name of the “song?” is very much banal, of course, but i prefer to not change it and leave as i have named it 15 years ago.

on the photo you can see my room at the parent’s apartment, and my dog Otto, who liked to lay on my “bed”.

i have some internal resistance to share recently, though i am very productive in professional life, and i also have made incredible amount of photos. some of them i even like. found an astonishing mountain, no road to it, but when you’re on top of it, you can see something magical. (:

i of course write, but store it locally. i have troubles sharing. sorry. #music #sound #2001 #room #love #~love
