I have decided to give Drumgizmo a shot and have compiled it from the tarball provided on the Drumgizmo website. Having done so (seemingly successfully) I now face a failure to load in Ardour 3.5.403. I create a midi track, choose the instrument (drumgizmo appears in the drop down list) but when the track creates I get the following error
[ERROR]: LV2: Failed to instantiate plugin http://drumgizmo.org/lv2
So I had me a wee google and this usually seems to be due to an issue with incorrect lv2 install directory. Wasnt sure if this would be the issue as ardour was seeing it to populate the drop down instrument menu - but I thought I would try and dot the I’s etc.
By default it had wound up in /usr/local/lib. So I redid the compile/make/install with the directory specified as usr/local/lib/lv2. Now I have a folder in said directory called drumgizmo.lv2. Anyway - still no dice - the same error.
So I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to do next?
