I have been toying with zynaddsubfx software synth recently, and having alot of fun. Unfortunately, just yesterday I wanted to try to do a screen recording of the tweaking of the knobs. * Now* it seems that when I use the keyboard to trigger the synth, I get a signal from the keyboard that it is repeating. Like when you hold down a key, in a text entry box, but rather, the synth continues to repeat… The thing that I suspect is that I after I installed simplescreenrecorder, the problem seemed to arise. I tried removing it,
sudo zypper remove simplescreenrecorder
, but the problem is still there. I tried installing a few screen recorders at that time; vokorecorder, xfce4-screenshooter… and then some other stuff to try and play the movie that I recorded using simplescreenrecorder. I installed mplayer because vlc didn’t seem to like the matroska codec/container (mkv). * After all*, I have not succeeded in recording with sound, and the synth is not working properly anymore. I just installed all the updates and checked again, same problem. I am at a loss although I think it is something basic with Xwindows, that was changed through installing something. Where to find that I don’t know. Thanks for any help.
X version info below (X ORG X Server 184.108.40.2061),
openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) 64-bit…
just installed zynaddsubfx and simplescreenrecorder,
so they should be new.
I have been using kind of a awkward setup, getting the signal(audio) through ardour, although the same happens with qtractor. So my setup is to:
- start ardour
- start zynaddsubfx
- set the input for ardour to zynaddsubfx (track 1)
arm track for recording
set monitor to --ardour does monitoring
- go back to the virtual keyboard for zynaddsubfx
press keys with mouse (works)
try keyboard (after a few seconds, gets a repeating trigger)
