i’m trying to use bcf2000 on ardour under linux debian based librazik 2. All work fine on install and mapping side. I connect bcf through a2j in input and output and in ardour i use mackie control emulation with bcf configuration.
All seems working till i try to move by hand a fader and/or a button and then fader or button that i’ve touched gone in erratic moves with the sound of motors forcing in both ways alternatively quickly. I must stop the “connection” on ardour to stop it and when i put the connection all faders goes to their respective position accordingly to te positions of each line. If i don’t connect the feedback to bcf and just the input everything goes fine but i don’t have the bcf fader according to each line.
Does someone have noticed this and is there a solution ?
The BCF2k Does not have touch for the faders. The default seems to be “Send fader position only when touched”, try changing this to “Send fader position when moved”.
I just checked the BCF2000.device file and it does have TouchSenseFaders value=“no” which I would have thought would already solve that. So perhaps that is a bug as well.
It’s the same thing when i change for “Send fader position when moved”. Something else to try ?
I really want to make it work, if possible before next wednesday when i bring back the hardware to the studio.
Thanks you Len to try to help me.
Instead of Mackie, you could try generic-midi with one of the BCF2k profiles.
it works fiiiiineeeee.
Your great Robin
Ooops, i reply too soon…
Some buttons doesn’t work, like mute, rec, solo. When i push the bdf button, it lit and in ardour it lit too but not stay active… don’t understand why… And it’s not possible to go further than 16 channels…
My configuration is jack with qjackctl, a2j through, and bcf cross connected to through. In ardour generic emualtion
