Anyone has been able to setup midi control for tonelib gfx in linux?
Using the standalone app, I was able to map the joystick up/down on my microkey-25 to "prev bank" and "next bank". I'm not sure how useful it would be, but it works. I'm using AVLinux, and Jack. The microkey-25 shows up as an "active midi input" in tonelib-gfx.
Thanks, I thought it was necessary to appear in jack connections but it worked.
I'm not getting this to work. I'm using KDE Neon with the KXStudio repos and ToneLib GFX 4.7.5.
I have my Airstep connected (I have tried both Bluetooth and USB connection and both seem to work) and it shows up in amidi -l as well as on Jack, if I run that:
It also appears in Tonelib GFX using both ALSA and Jack drivers:
(And, yes, just to repeat, I have tried this using a direct USB connection and it's exactly the same issue)
I have also used midisnoop to check that midi events are coming through:
However, whatever I try ToneLib GFX does not seem to read the MIDI events and just sits there:
I have also tried this with my USB connected Akai MPK Mini mk 3 and it doesn't seem to take any notice of the MIDI from their either.
I notice that (in the top image) when using Jack, the JUCEJack item, which appears to be ToneLib GFX, does not show up a MIDI input. I'm not sure if this is relevant or not.
So, I tried something else, perhaps to keep you in the box. I installed jack-keyboard. Started it from the command line, and it showed up in jack, and I connected it to "Midi Through Port-0":
Midi Through Port-0 is active in ToneLib:
Hit the "+" next to "MIDI > Presets navigation > Prev bank" in TLGFX, get the prompt pop-up, and I move the mod wheel slider on jack-keyboard, and it accepts it.
Maybe try that and see if it works. As you see, I'm also running a2j, but that doesn't seem to come into play if I am using, say, my Korg microKey keyboard.
Thanks for your help on this. I have it working now. It seems ToneLib only recognises MIDI CC, and not PC.
