I have the Zynthian running off of a USB 3.0 attached SSD. only one issue

I have the /boot and / mounted off a USB 3.0 attached m.2 SSD. I updates /home/pi/zynthian-sys/boot/cmdline.txt All is good there. My issue is when I record audio files they are no longer dropped in /home/pi/zynthian-my-data/capture. Now recordings go to the root of the SSD.
Is there a file I can update for the audio/midi storage location ? I didn’t file this as a bug, I think it’s a feature :)… I just need to adjust the feature.


Zynthian is fast running off the SSD. Soundfonts load up quick!

Zynthian detects whether there is USB attached storage and if so, it uses it to store captures. This is a simple mechanism for allowing users to insert USB storage and automatically use it. This is hardcoded so I don’t think it is a simple configuration change. You are right that this is not standard hence isn’t a bug. USB OS isn’t a supported configuration and is known to be awkward to maintain. Maybe there could be some community effort to offer a patch to support this but I would suggest it shouldn’t distract the core developers from supporting the standard configuration.

I can help with this. :slight_smile: Most of my PI4 projects boot and run off of SSD.
I updated the Directory Path environment var in zynthian_envars.sh to
Now we just need to make the value persistent between configuration changes.

I don’t want to distract developers from the full integration of Sfizz and stuff like that. The results I am getting from the preliminary recipe is great.

Thanks for all the hard work you and the zynthian team has done. This has been a fun distraction from the Pandemic!

I goofed. Apparently the configuration file I updated is for the UI to find the directory
