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 has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
