maudio oxygen8v2 control

Hi all, can you help please?
I have a fresh install of Ubuntu studio 9.10, and for far i haven’t been able to find any instructions on getting the keyboard setup. I can get the keys and pitch wheel working in Qsynth and can record the sounds in Ardour no problem. I just wanted to try out the other functions, play controls / surface and the knobs. I am also hoping to find out about using this device as a sampler for loops etc? What apps should I be looking at? I have looked about on the net but most guides are out of date?
Many thanks

Just another note,
cat /proc/asound/cards

I also have fxload installed, but not sore what to do with it?

OK, I have made progress, i now have the knobs assigned to the faders working, and got the stop,play and record buttons controlling the record head.Really nice to able to mix on the fly.
I saved the session, hoping to save the oxygen mappings. But when i open i get the following error messages;
[WARNING]: Generic MIDI control: controllable 2 not found in session (ignored)
then for each control.
It lost the mappings.
To get them back i have to go through the whole procedure again, very annoying.
I am loading the template and making sure jack has mapped the oxygen to Ardour midi before selecting the project.
what am i doing wrong. why are the mappings not persistent?

@evozero: i believe this is “just” a bug. Which version of ardour are you using?


I also have this midi controller. Before I was connecting it via midi in the qjackctl midi tab (oxygen>ardour midi in)

Try doing it through the ALSA tab in qjackctl (oxygen>ardour 0:control)

When I reload a session I also loose bindings ONLY for the control buttons but not the dials, I only have to re-assign stop, play and record buttons. The backward and forward buttons for some reason don’t respond, do these two work for you?

See this post:

For loops and cool sounds you can try the following apps:
SynAddSubFX (Synth sound creator)
amSynth (Synth sound creator)
sequencer24 (midi sequencer which can be used to loop)
