dug up an old MIDI DJ controller, using it to control some of the audio filters i have in my usual JACK setup.
i now have two separate EQ/volume controls for mpd and applications as well as illuminated toggle buttons for the various filters, so i can e.g. switch off the sidechain compressor that auto-mutes mpd when something else is playing, or mute application audio on the speakers (so they’re only audible on the headphone output)
having physical controls for this stuff is neat. i only had to write a MIDI filter to turn button presses into CC events (using rtmidi for that) and send back commands to the controller so it reflects the current toggle state with its LEDs
did i mention JACK is the most awesome shit? i can just route hardware MIDI events through a filter i hacked up in a few minutes, it’s so easy
oh my god they’ve actually fixed the ACPI bugs that caused the fan to go to max speed when resuming from suspend to RAM!
also it managed to update the firmware without erasing all the settings
Please plug in AC!!
System doesn't permit flashing BIOS!! Please press any key after plug in AC!!
