Hi. Not an expert. I have a midi file which I want to cut 4 seconds from the beginning and save the result to a new midi file. Can I do it with this app and how?

TIA.

I've been anticipating this for a long time, got 1.0RC1 on here, atm, seems fine.
Thanks you.

One of the many links in the chain of using Linux to do some 'real' audio work is now inlplace.
Next on list:

JACK/"realtime stuff"... ;) working sanely with normal users, that's be nice :)

I a really good program, but I would like to open my cakewalk files on it. With that addition it would be the definitly audio track recording tool.

Ah, yesss. The old interoperability issue. A pet peeve of mine for a long time.

Cubase vs Cakewalk vs Tracktion vs ... never the twain do meet. But we are Opensource. Unfortunately, supporting "competing" closed formats means reverse-engineering. Cakewalk, for example, has MIDI tracks, audio tracks which are pointers to pieces of audio .wav files and track properties, plugin chains, etc. Their .bun files put all this in one huge file.

I proposed (on Linux Audio Users list) everyone support a simple open format based on XML (text specifications) of similar paradigm. There is an "AAF" consortium which had a binary format (humongous, also covering video and ALL authoring needs!) and should have an XML(-text) based version some day as well. Such should be the future.

one issue i had with cvs from about 2 weeks ago was that when recording one track which was rhythm and then a second seperate audio track which was lead, when recording lead i couldn't hear rhythm playback in the bacground, not sure if it was a config option anywhere, i checked but couldn't find it. strange thing was if i started recording not at begining of track but about 10 seconds in i got the rhythm track audio, but recording was all wrong., not in time.

I take it all back and apologize. As you may have guessed already: it was all my fault. Reading the Rosegarden FAQ (-> alsa.m4) and searching the web (-> PKG_... function) helped. Finally, I found out, that for some weird reason I hadn't set QTDIR and KDEDIR any more. Duh! Everything runs through smoothly now. Thanks to the Rosegarden developers. Very well done!

May you dont know how to configure it but RoseGarden works fine using it inclusive with softsynths like fluidsynth...
You need to read more documentation to set it to your needs...
Thanx

Rosegarden looks very nice and promising from the screenshots, unfortunately it's incredibly slow, and also crashes a lot (it just can't load some MIDI files).

It's sad that I haven't found a useable MIDI editor for Linux yet, but I hope Rosegarden and some other programs could fill the huge gap of missing *useable* Linux music/audio apps when they mature, in a couple of years... There's some potential.

I personally prefer a crappy old atari tool called "band in a box" because it suits the needs of musicians. You can enter accords and it generates introductions for you etc.

A Chord interface for guitar players should be added.

I also like aleatoric music tools, a plugin structure could help.
