Maybe the problem is because of new version of jack ... just guessing.
I was sending email with question to author ... email came back undelivered.
< Ok install went smooth from the latest iso image and got sound up and
< running through jack no problems (that you dev team for another great
< release). now I added the universe repository only to add the mx44
< app. I had the same result. I could not start the app with jack. the
< output from terminal is as follows:
< nate@64studio:~$ mx44
< Port subscribed: sender: 129:0 dest: 130:0
< jack_client_new: deprecated
< engine sample rate: 48000
< Jack nframes: 512
< client activated
< Capture ports:
< Playback ports:
< sizeof 48 voices: 29952, 16 keyboards: 41352, 128 patches: 61440
< Voice data loaded
< /dev/midi: No such file or directory
< JackFifo::TimedWait name = /dev/shm/jack_fifo.default_Mx44 usec =
< 2147483647 revents 0
< SuspendRefNum error
< JackClient::Execute error name = Mx44
< Voice data saved
< Thankyou for using Mx4!
< Now when I run the jack gui control but do NOT start jack I can start
< mx44 fine and connect my midi controller to it by using the ALSA tab
< in the jack audio connection kit gui. runs fine but I would love to
< run it in jack for actual use. until now this hasn't been a problem.
< Another issue I suspect might be related is that I see no devices
< other than system in the MIDI tab when jack is started and mx44
< terminal say there is no /dev/midi directory. This is the same result
< using all 3 MIDI drivers in jack setup. so I am assuming jack isn't
< reading my MIDI devices properly? hopefully someone can direct us in
< the right direction on this as mx44 starts with jack I am wondering if
< it might be a jack MIDI issue?
