Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

Ok another update. In Qjackctl in the settings, under Misc I checked a few boxes relating to Enable D-bus. Now when I run the following line in terminal: qjackctl --active-patchbay=/home/pi/folder/mypresetname.xml It does launch qjackctl with my patch loaded and activated. But when I launch Pd I sti...

I want this to ultimately happen automatically with a shell script. So in termina...

Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

@flappix thank you for that very detailed reply. I think I followed along. It took a while, but I was able to set everything up with qjack. So now, I have my midi controller plugged in at startup, I launch qjackctl from the terminal and load my patchbay preset (manually) and hit "activate."...

Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

Hey everyone. So I have a solution, but it's not a great solution. I am able to connect my midi devices using aconnect, but it takes like 30 seconds after Pd has launched to achieve this, and, because of the nature of my setup, I have to quit Pd and restart it for every song, and wait 30 seconds aga...

Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

Hi, Thank you flappix for your reply. Someone on the Pure Data forum introduced me to aconnect, so I was able to use that. I had to launch Pd first then type in: aconnect 'Your Controller Name':0 'Pure Data':0 in the terminal. That worked for Pd to receive midi data from my controller, but it didn't...

Hi, I am a new member. I make and perform with my own Arduino based own midi controllers. I am working on a new instrument that uses a Raspberry Pi 3 and Pure data. It's battery operated, I run it headless and it sounds amazing. Here's my site if anyone wants to see my instruments: https://smomid.co...
