Which card should I buy?

Atle Weibell's picture

Hi,

Thanks for great articles! I have a USB Midisport 2x2, but it doesn't seem to be easy to setup in linux. I need a new sound card anyway, so I'll buy one with MIDI support as well. In an earlier comment, it was mentioned that not all vendors provide specifications. Who are the good guys? Which cards should I consider for MIDI and audio? :)

regards, aw

I just got a midisport 1x1 go

I just got a midisport 1x1 going last night on my laptop. The way to do it is described here:

http://usb-midi-fw.sourceforge.net/

I made my son laugh this morning - I went to wake him up and told him I had learned some new pieces on the electric piano last night. I dashed back to the music room, hit play in kmid and a beautiful Bach sonata thundered out. As I usually struggle with anything beyond "Twinkle Twinkle" he was impressed !

Rosegarden had compiled while I slept and we then successfully used the piano to input a couple of scales into Rosegarden turned them into notation, played them back as a trumpet on the computer.

So your midisport will work!

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
