PostPosted: Thu 22 Jun 2006, 13:22    Post subject:  Musician pups: Ardour, JACK-Qjackctl, Vkeybd, several Synths  

As promised in another thread, I have prepared several dotpups for audio/music/home-recording applications. These were created with Puppy 1.0.8rc1 because most of them either require or work best with ALSA. Each dotpup worked on at least three computers I use -- including a lowly, 400MHz/128MB laptop from 1997 -- so hopefully they are problem-free. Here you go:

(1) JACK-Qjackctl
The popular audio connection programs compiled from source. Qjackctl is the graphical interface for JACK that makes it a lot easier to use.

Smaller binary version - 6.55MB (6.89MB):

Larger development version with headers - 6.91MB (7.25MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/6744625

(2) Ardour
Multichannel digital audio workstation for recording. Same version as used in Nathan F's Grafpup squashfile "usr_multimedia.sfs". Requires JACK to be installed, so download JACK-Qjackctl dotpup as well.

Binary version - 6.42MB (6.75MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/8478102

(3) Vkeybd
Graphical virtual keyboard compiled from source. A little piano keyboard that allows you to play music with input on your computer keyboard or mouse. You can adjust the number of octaves appearing on the piano and control effects if you have them available through other programs. Default octave setting is 4.

Smaller binary version - 32K (38K)
http://www.savefile.com/files/3226781

Larger developmental version with headers - 48K (50K)
http://www.savefile.com/files/3330714

(4) Fluidsynth-Qsynth
A Soundfont player compiled from source. Qsynth is the graphical interface for Fluidsynth. Requires JACK to be installed AND RUNNING, so download JACK-Qjackctl dotpup as well and start JACK before starting Fluidsynth-Qsynth.

Smaller binary version - 6.06MB (6.36MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/5374502

Larger developmental version with headers - 6.46MB (6.79MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/8822868

(5) Xsynth-DSSI
Graphical soft-synth which has a number of preset synth and instrument sounds and allows you to create your own. Compiled from source. Requires JACK to be installed AND RUNNING, so download JACK-Qjackctl dotpup as well and start JACK before starting Xsynth-DSSI.

Smaller binary version - 1.07MB (1.23MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/3572389

Larger developmental version with headers - 1.10MB (1.67MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/9569454

(6) DSSI-VST (with VSTHost)
Command-line Windows VST instrument plug-in players from the same DSSI-VST package compiled from source. While there are a limited number of Linux instrument plug-ins, there are a TON of them for Windows in "dll" extension format. Contains a special folder for dll plug-in files. Requires JACK to be installed, so download JACK-Qjackctl dotpup as well. Also requires a modern version of Wine and I highly recommend Mark's/MU's "usr_more.sfs" squashfile for Wine 0.9.9 which has its own thread in this forum.

Smaller binary version - 1.10MB (1.56MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/4889549

Larger developmental version with headers - 1.14MB (1.20MB)
http://www.savefile.com/files/2670362

Have fun and enjoy! Please let me know if there are any issues with any of them.

Thank you both for helping spread the word. I am continuing to work on other music related applications for Puppy like Bristol/Brighton, MSS, Rosegarden-4, etc. and will provide new dotpups as they are completed. Thanks again!

Just a comment:
Do I assume correctly that Qsynth is a QT app? If so, you might want to mention that the qt-3.3.4 pupget package is required...

Dougal, both Qsynth and Qjackctl are QT applications. However, I included the necessary QT libraries with both the JACK-Qjackctl and Fluidsynth-Qsynth dotpups. If you already have the QT libraries installed, I believe the dotpup installer gives you the option of keeping your existing libraries or overwriting them. Whichever option you choose, the dotpups should work the same.

In general, all necessary libraries for each of the dotpups are included so that one can take a fresh, brand-new version of Puppy with no existing pup100 file, install the dotpup alone and the application will work (unless it needs the JACK-Qjackctl dotpup too like some of them do). I tested each one that way with no problems. I am a big fan of standalone applications and wanted to minimize the amount of library and dotpup "fishing" and downloading one would have to do to get these programs running. Hope that helps to clarify what is included (and why some of these dotpups are 6MB Smile ).

Hi,

Anywhere I can get Ardour pup? The link on the original post seems to be dead (expected since it's months old), and I can't find a copy in dotpups.de (in any one of the 5 toddyjoe's music apps directory)

Thanks!

I have no idea why I did not mirror it.
Please write toddyjoe a PM.
If he can upload it again, I'd mirror it.
He can upload to:

Thanks for the info Mark.

I guess I will pass for the moment - I spent the night on 2.15CE trying some of the other software:
1. libtk8.4.so is missing, as stated in earlier post, so I tried to be clever and symlinked it to libtk8.5.so --- it seemed to work, but ...
2. Hydrogen crashed when I tried to open "preference" menu.
3. Rosegarden randomly crashed when playing MIDI file connected to Qfluidsynth.
4. Some of the software runs on Jack, some don't (so they don't cooperate - when Jack is running, non-jack-aware programs cannot run because the OSS sound device is locked by jack).

I messed up the my entire install and was forced to delete my pup_save (my stupidity of forgetting to back it up) and re-install everything from scratch.

I guess this is perhaps because they are built for puppy 1.08 and now we are at 2.15. I'm already warned but I took the plunge anyway Very Happy

I'm going off to try pure:dyne now (its parent dyne:bolic also didn't work for me, it freezes each time I did MIDI output) and Musix for my musical needs.
Puppy stays though - it has already helped me once to recover my files from a dead WinXP office laptop. In case I haven't said it --- kudos to the team that made 2.15CE possible !

I tried some time to set up a sequencer with effects, drums, softsynth and tuner. But it all went unstable, and I left it. I hoped someone would make a musicians.sfs. toddyjoe made a beginning, but I think he left us??? Crying or Very sad

Hello, everybody!

I think it would be interesting for Ardour users.
I've downloaded TAP plugins from
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/t/tap-plugins/tap-plugins_0.7.0-2_i386.deb
undeb it and copy to /usr/ directory.
It works fine on my machine.
I am using Puppy2.14.

Nikolay.

Jamesbond - You could try grafpup Linux with the multimedia package. Ardour works quite well there.
