I’ve tried to figure this out myself without success. I’d like to be able to play the Salamander piano on my Zynthian, but I don’t know where to begin to install it.
First, my download from the Salamander website appears to be a Raspberry Pi imager. So, that doesn’t seem right for Zynthian.
I connected to my Zynthian (http://zynthian.local/) and looked at the LV2-Plugins and I don’t see LinuxSampler there to enable. Nor can I see SFizz or anything else I might recognise to play the Salamander samples (which I don’t actually have).
Can someone please give me a few clues how to get Salamander on my Zynthian?
step - Change ZynAddSubFX on Sfizz or LinuxSampler
step - Make new bank - write name (for example “piano”) and click on plus symbol
step - select by click new bank (for example MySZF/piano) - after this on the right side you can see Bank name, download and upload button
step - Click on upload buton, select zip file from the first step and click on upload. Wait for uploading… it take over half minute (in my case)
step - the screen will return to the Presets & Soundfonts screen with the sfizz or linuxsampler banks. Now you have to wait, zinthian will unzip the zip file and do other stuff. In my case it was about a minute. After this will be read for playing
step - Final - In Zynthian make new synth chain, select sfizz or linuxsampler, set midi channel, select MySFZ/piano bank and select SalamanderGrandPiano-master… it all
Thank you everyone for your suggestions. Ultimately, it was user error – I was too busy trying to install Salamander etc to realise that it was already in the Zynthian image. Thanks @riban for pointing this out.
