MaxdamantusN900 + fluidsynth + keyboard + b-griff keyboard interpreter:
sicelolovely! long live N900 :)13:10
Maxdamantusfluidsynth gets quite laggy though at those double notes.13:13
Maxdamantusmaybe need to use a simpler instrument or something, since I've noticed performance varies quite a bit depending on the instrument.13:14
MaxdamantusJust need to figure out how to turn the blue light off.13:15
*** Linkandzelda has quit IRC13:21
sicelodoes the blue light get stuck on when you're done using usbmode? the last time i used usb host on N900 that was an issue i observed13:21

*** Linkandzelda has joined #maemo13:23
MaxdamantusIt at least goes away after removing the "PatternBoost" pattern from /etc/mce.ini and restarting mce (`killall mce`)13:23
Maxdamantusbut I have a suspicion it's just in some sort of error state, since the regular charging pattern doesn't come on (just shows solid orange while charging)13:24
MaxdamantusMeh, the SMS notification pattern still works at least, so it's okay.13:26

KotCzarnyshe left14:11

brolin_empeyMaxdamantus: Which keyboard layout is that on the full-size hardware keyboard?18:25
brolin_empeyYou can use the N900 with its touch screen as a musical keyboard but you cannot play a chord with the resistive touch panel.18:26
brolin_empeyI think the program I used is named maesynth?18:28

brolin_empeySigh.  I thought I could reuse a Socket 939 motherboard from 2006 but apparently at least 4 electrolytic capacitors have bulged/blown since this motherboard was last used years ago:19:12
brolin_empeyThis is why I do not assume that a computer that has been powered off for years still works.19:17
CatButtsso the caps just bloated on their own?19:32
CatButtswith no electricity?19:33
CatButtsI mean, I expect caps to become bad over time when left idle, but not physically visible damage19:33
*** Kabouik has quit IRC19:36
brolin_empeyI do not know when the capacitors bulged because this computer has sat unused for multiple years.19:45

sixwheeledbeastI imagine it would be possible if stored in warm temperatures for a long time. Normally they fail in use but still work until discharged.20:37

Maxdamantusbrolin_empey: I'm using it as a b-griff layout, like on a type B chromatic button accordion.21:37
Maxdamantusso the key directly below (slanted slightly to the right) is always a semitone above, and the key directly to the right is always three semitones (minor third) above.21:38
Maxdamantus(that includes the number row as well, so you get duplicate fingerings between the top and bottom rows)21:43
brolin_empeyMaxdamantus: OK.  I think I have forgotten much of what I knew about music theory, including how to read traditional music notation as used on sheet music.21:49
Maxdamantusbrolin_empey: here's a web version if you're interested:
Maxdamantusone notable thing about the layout is that all of the relative positions of the keys correspond to particular intervals, unlike on a piano layout, where the key to the right might be up a semitone or a whole tone.22:14
