my story so far
 
People,
I really get out of my mind from frustration, excuse me if I sound harsh... it's the adrenaline still rushing through my veins...*
About a month or so ago, I discovered the sonatina sample set. So I decided to try it out. Guess what, it worked! Linuxsampler worked just fine, jfantasia worked so good and I actually wrote some music with it.


Then the exams came along. So I had to study, no time to write music anymore. OK, no problem, let's continue afterwards.
Today I took the step, and decided to fire up jfantasia.


guess what :*It did not work anymore!
"Connecting to LinuxSampler: Can't establish connection."
Here goes my creative moment AGAIN!


What does someone have to do to have a stable system? THAT KEEPS WORKING!
Yet again I had to spend hours and hours to figure out what has happened with my system, and really, the only thing I want to do is MAKING MUSIC, the only thing I don't get to.


When starting from commandline lscp uses a different IP then Jfantasia's default connection setting, and I already discovered that the port should be set to something else, like 8000 instead of 8888 as entered in the jfantasia default, because for some mysterious reason port 8888 appears to be in use for something else... and I don't even know what... netstat --listen shows 'localhost:888', whatever that might mean.


Starting linuxsampler first with 8000 as port and then with the same settings in jfantasia it finally works, but*why the change in behavior? Is it an update that caused all this?*


Can someone plz explain to me why I have to dig into man-files listening to ports, browsing forums, using mailinglists, only to end up so exhausted from it that I simply don't get into doing what I want/have to do: MAKING MUSIC? And this only a month after having a working system?


grtz,
Bart

my story so far
 
I don't update my studio machine. You are also using software there that doesn't "ship" with ubuntustudio. Getting envolved with testing the things you need can be helpful. I try and load up the test versions and make sure firewire works, since not a lot of folks use firewire, but we need to support it properly. I haven't installed 12.04 on my production machine yet, and I won't til I have time to install and test on another machine, then I on another partition or drive on my actual production machine. Then, I will likely keep the testing machine around to test big updates, or I just won't update that machine... I have daily use netbooks I keep up to date

my story so far
 
thx for your reply Holstein.*
But sadly enough, for the real good sounding stuff, like the sonatina sample set, which is wonderful, I am quite often forced to go outside of the ubuntu-studio packages. If you know an alternative to linuxsampler for using these samplesets (gig, sfz, ...) don't hesitate to tell me.


The problem seems to extend to rosegarden too though, which seemed to have had an update too, and now all my midi channels are messed up. A channel set to play strings (channel 2), now plays piano (channel 1), *even though the tracks are set to the correct midi channels, and using my keyboard it does play the correct instrument...*


Yet another mystery to solve!!!!
I better give up for today... or I'm gonna start smashing things

my story so far
 
I don't use linux sampler at all... this is part of what I'm suggesting to you as well. You might need to get envolved with testing things that you need. I don't think anyone tests anything with linux sampler. Also, try not upgrading at all. The AVlinux creator suggests this for AVlinux, and I agree. I am not running one machine for everything though, but I don't suggest anyone do that. I would suggest even a different partition with an audio install that you don't ever upgrade. It'll always "just work" and if you are worried about security, you can block or disable networking.
