Thanks to Ferdando’s help I managed to install PianoTeq Standard (not just Stage).
Here’s what I did (should apply to Stage as well, I don’t know about Pro)
Upload PianoTeq’s binary (pianoteq_linux_v630.7z in my case) via
the web interface (http://zynthian.local/api/sw-pianoteq)
Reboot Zynthian, connect to it via ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org
Start PianoTeq Standard via Zynthian. It appears on the computer
screen. Register via the PianoTeq GUI on my computer (using manual
registration, copy/pasting the key).
Close PianoTeq from the GUI, not from Zynthian (I don’t know why,
but Ferdando told me to do it this way in order to get the presets
of the registered instruments no longer categorized as DEMO).
Go back to the web interface and press the Update Preset button
It works like a charm, however I have still 2 minor problems:
Except for the first preset, one needs to click on the preset to
load it, as opposed to just selecting it and playing some notes on
Once inside the preset the sustain pedal only shows an on/off
state. However PianoTeq supports multiple levels of sustain (0 to
127) so does my sustain pedal. I can hear that PianoTeq registers
the varying sustain levels, however the interface only shows
Regarding the second problem Ferdando actually has written a fix that
I haven’t tested yet, here it is, quoting Ferando
It’s implemented in the “touchless-midilearn” branch of zynthian-ui
You can test it like this:
git checkout .
git checkout touchless-midilearn
Hope it helps and that I didn’t pack too many things in the same thread.
