Incredible job everybody on Ardour! I really love the product and plan on supporting the further development of it. I’m planning on using Linux for my pro level audio production so thanks to everyone that contributes their time and skills to the cause.
I’m using Ardour 6.6 with the latest version of Ubuntu Studio 20.10 with KDE.
I have an M-Audio 2496 audio card with midi and a M-Audio Midiman/Midisport 8X8 rack mounted midi interface.
Although I have used all of this hardware before with a older version of Ardour and a difference version of Ubuntu Studio I can’t recall what had to be done to actually use any of it.
The audio portion of the M-audio 2496 is working great. The midi is not but I wasn’t really planning on using the midi on this card only the midi on the Midisport 8x8.
I installed the “midisport-firmware” package from the Ubuntu repositories and restarted the machine (not that this should be necessary). It also installs “fxload” package as it’s only dependencies.
I can’t for the life of me see any of these midi devices anywhere on the system. I open Ardour under the Midi setup. I don’t see the Midisport there either. I’m hoping I’ll get served a little “humble pie” thinking I missed a step but I can’t seem to even find any reference to the Midisport device never mind configure it.
Is there anyone out there that might point me in the right direction? I would truly appreciate it very much.
