Did you use setBfree with MOD all the time? MOD is really great, but some features of specific plugins are not supported as LV2. It will take a time and of course, we have to improve a lot the integration in the Zynthian GUI.
In the other side, the standalone setbfree engine has full integration, including drawbars, rotary, vibrato, percussion, overdrive, etc. as MIDI CC. Also support program change, for fast register/preset change.
Do you mean a "step sequencer for percussion sets"? No, we don't, by now...
But we have a lot of percussions sets with LinuxSampler and some with Fluid too. In ZynAddSubFX there is only one.
Also we have some kind of step sequencer in MOD that can be programmed from the computer. OK. I know you know this
Yes! Of course! High priority! This is a RED task in my list.
We are working on this, but building and selling RTP units is not a joke. I prefer to proceed step by step ...
I think the latency is about 10ms, but it must be measured. Of course, we can measure the electronic latency, from keypress to audio signal in output, but for the musician is very important the distance to the speaker. A distance of 1 meter introduces an extra latency of 3.3 ms.
Anyway, it would be really useful to have some real measurement of latency. If latency is under 10ms, Zynthian will be perceived as "professional-grade" stuff by many musicians
Great! Good news. I have some proposal for making workshops with students. I would like to incentive this kind of uses. We will task about it
Nice! All help is welcome!! But i can't see any reason for not using MOD-UI as it's GPLed. If we need new features we should improve it better than starting from scratch
Of course it's perfectly possible! In fact i did some tests in this area. ALL the paremeters of ZynAddSubFX are accesible using OSC, and the OSC tree is very well documented. The difficulty is creating a good User Experience with the Zynthian UI.
Great!!! It would be good for the project to have some nice videos with HQ audio where good musicians play Zynthian showing the different engines and plugins. I'm working for do it here, in Barcelona (we have some good musicians too ). A kind of "Zynthian Sessions". If you could get more videos in Germany, woaooo! " Zynthian Sessions Berlin". Perhaps for 2017 we could invite Herbie Hancock
Woaooooo! Mr Holger, you made a quite good and detailed report. Congratulations by your work and effort
