GTK Dialog Bristol Synthesizer Emulator Front End
Hi, All. This is a little something I made up that I think some one/musicians might find useful.
It is a gtk_dialog interface to the Bristol synthesizer in the lucid repo (i think it is in the other repos too, tho not sure if this will work for those).
It bugged me that I had to keep restarting it to change emulator/synths so this handles that up front.
Save the code below to a script file, set to runnable, then open it and it opens the main (and only window) where you can select which synth, if you want to output the session or not, and the output's bitrate. Then click OK and it will open Bristol. Note: on my computer (old) it takes about 5 seconds or so for bristol to open so you might have to patient. (Something puppy users do not normally have to do ).
Leave the Chooser open, then to change emulators just close the bristol app and select a new emulator/settings.
Note re: Output: it saves the output to the directory where the script is named "bristol"+`date`. It can then be imported into a sound program, ex. audacity, for processing as a signed 16-bit PCM file with the bitrate as you set it in the Chooser.
peace. Hope it helps.
emulator="`echo "$CHOOSER" | sed "s/ //g" | cut -d- -f2`"
if [ "$bolOUTPUT" = "true" ];
startBristol -o "bristol"$name -rate $rate -$emulator &
startBristol -$emulator &
export -f action_function
