I received my Organelle M a few days ago and have been having a blast playing with it, but there are a few patches I’ve tried using that require some combination of LADSPA, FluidSynth, and Pd-Extended, and I can’t tell if I’m doing something wrong for the installation, or if there are issues with them on the Organelle M.
Has anyone successfully installed them on an Organelle M?
Awesome, well I got a fluidsynth patch working with your instructions, so that is good.
Still no luck with the Hammond3 Organ patch that uses LADSPA and pd-extended. I could have pd-extended working fine, but I can’t entirely tell which is working and which isn’t, as the Hammond3 patch uses both.
Any chance someone could try that patch out on their Organelle M and see if they have any luck?
generally pd-extended appears to be fine - Ive no issues loading anything except GEM (which really is not needed for a headless instrument )
so that is not the issue with the hammond patch you details above.
in fact the hammond patch includes the pd-extended stuff it uses anyway.
the hammond patch is failing due to not being able to load particular plugins
(note: the plugin~ external is fine as far as i can tell)
I guess… this is because actually lv2 plugins are not available - I have thought these should be shipped with the patch? but they are not.
that said, Ive not been using lv2 plugins , so really dont know.
I guess if you installed the lv2 plugins you could see if these work… in the same way that most externals seem to be fine on the organelle-m.
(though perhaps if lv2 is including graphics libs this might be an issue - but we need to see )
note: a lot of LV2 plugins are available thru the standard apt package installer route, so this would be preferred route e.g.
sudo apt get tap-plugins
I think it would be a bad idea to start shipping stuff outside the apt package route, since this will cause problems if we start using apt for other things, since when you use apt it will drag in dependancies.
again similar to concerns as whats going on with fluidsynth really.
tap-plugins has the reverb but the organ is not in there
the organ is a different monster i have to find where it came from.
just tested this and indeed with tap-plugins [which really i had the most luck with] things are peachy.
Has anyone tried the calf plugins? i heard they were good
yes, I installed it on my dev image - it installs quite easily with apt-get install, though you’ll also need to consider jack setup.
but there are a couple of things to think about…
sclang is currently in a different place, and we need a jack start script. (easy to resolve)
but the main issue is sclang from raspbian appears to require an X session to be running, so I think, this means I need to recompile it like it did for the organelle-1… which is not a big deal. but i need to check this, as id prefer not to do this if its not necessary.
thanks for the caveats
i’m going to hold off a bit then. I do still think it might be fun to try to run it inside pd with the shell object. The programmers i asked to look at it had a bear of a time getting it to work with the Mother.scd. but most of that i attribute to them not having the device
