My name is Don Jand I play a Robert Morton 3/13 Pipe organ at the Polk (1200 seat) Theatre in Lakeland Florida (USA) for pre-show movies . The organ has about 1600 PIPES that operate from 2 blowers (7 1/2 HP each) and is 99 % Pneumatically operated.

I have recently installed a 16 note Midi System to provide addition sounds such a Piano etc, It works freat..

Now I need help and guidance to add a Hydrogen drum machine using a Raspberry 3 (that I can hide inside the walls.

The organ is traditional (Circa 1927) so I cannot have any visible modern day equipment , Such as a computer.

I am 89 years old, grew up in electronics, but I do not have tge benifit of your schooling

I am in dire need of some help from you people of the younger generation on this project.

Selection and programing are the issues. Is there any way you people could help me with the software ?

Hi Don. I don't have the solution for you but this is quite an interesting project and I hope you will share your progress here.

We have a great Wurlitzer in the Paramount out here in Oakland, CA and it's quite a thrill to hear it in action.

Hi, Don! I've been experimenting with the Raspberry Pi for music, and I would love to help.

When you say "Selection and programing are the issues", what do you mean? Do you mean selecting a drumkit preset, or programming the patterns? How are you planning to work with hydrogen, playing live or playing recorded patterns?

Hi Nathan

I have developed a few command line programs which may be useful for Linux musicians, namely:
- router: an alternative to QMidiRoute which differs between "note on" and "note off" and also provides an extra transformation
- chogen: a program that generates chords from single notes pressed on a MIDI controller or keyboard
- trigger: a utility that allows the user to start a program or command file by pressing a key on a MIDI controller or keyboard

The programs are shareware, and the C++ source code is available as a CodeLite project. 64-bit binaries are also included.
Initially, I would like to upload a PDF file documenting the software, so that anybody who is interested can contact me.

So please let me know how I can publish the PDF file here.

Cheers


Rainer

if the problem keeps happening let me know, perhaps it's time to disable the new-post-needs-approval thing.


I realize I'm quoting a fairly old message, but it looks like I'm having the same issue: I've written around 4 between posts and replies by now, and I'm still being told they're going to be moderated. Is there anything I may be doing wrong? Thanks!

I think we've upped this to 3-5 posts because spammers were catching up, but there is also something weird going on that prevents some users from being whitelisted. Luckily I know how to manually lift the moderation requirement for them (by removing them from the 'newly registered users' group).

I'm sorry, it's cumbersome, but better than a forum full of spam ;).

No problem at all! Thanks for the clarification, the threshold for minimum number of posts makes sense.

Hi

I'm a 65 years old newbie on Linux.
Live in the north of Sweden

Tested various distros and the only one I got my
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and Tracktion 7 to operate
with really low latency was Ubuntu Studio.

So that's what I'm using

Here is a small test from yesterday evening
