Hello! I’m new to Linux and Ardour, how do you install AVL on my Ubuntu Studio?

(roithamer) #6
Unpack it and put avldrums.lv2 into /home/username/.lv2 (or check README.txt)

I put it like this in the capture, but in ardor it is not to select.-

What could happen?


(Robin Gareus) #8

All those files need to be in a sub-folder ~/.lv2/avldrums.lv2 (and lower case “l” in `~/lv2)

cd /tmp
tar xf x42-avldrums-v0.3.4-x86_64.tar.gz
mkdir ~/.lv2
mv x42-avldrums/avldrums.lv2 ~/lv2/

restart ardour to pick up the new plugins and look for “Black Pearl” and “Red Zeppelin”

For future reference: Visit the project page for the download link. Once there’s an update the direct download of v0.3.4 will not work anymore:

Hi Robin, I followed your instructions, downloaded and extracted the files, a directory was created and all the files was moved into the new directory, but when I restart Ardour I don’t see the plugins. I’m using ubuntu studio 19.04 disco dingo. It seems that there is no avl drum in the instruments in my Ardour plugins.

Please, can you help me?

(Robin Gareus) #12

The drumkits are called “Black Pearl” and “Red Zeppelin” - They should be listed in the dropdown when creating a new MIDI track, or in the plugin-manager under “Instruments”.

If not, perhaps check Menu > Window > Log (for some more information).

(Salvoinz) #13

thanks Robin,
I’ll try to check the log.
I’ve already done the first part, I mean I created a MIDI track and searched “Instruments” in the plug-in manager, but I didn’t find any “Black Pearl” or “Red Zeppelin”.
tomorrow I’ll try to post some screenshot.
