    jOrgan query

    Since I didn't succeed to get far with the author of jOrgan, could I enlist the help of the more technically abled in this forum as to what can be done to jOrgan v3.7 to embed the following changes permanently into the software:

    (a) default setting to have "no touch sensitivity"
    (b) to get the program to register MIDI channels as numbered from 1-16 (not 0-15).

    The intention is not to alter the program other than to make it that little bit easier to use. The advice will surely help technical idiots like me.

    Hi Mark,

    I've moved this discussion regarding jOrgan to this forum area dedicated to such topics.
    I think it will receive better responses here.

    Hi Mark,
    While I have compiled jOrgan from the sourcecode, I have not delved into the code deep enough to know where these defaults are (yet).

    Point (a) will only affect newly created ranks, so one would need to find that code section and make the changes there.

    Point (b) has multiple places within the code that would need to be changed.

    By the way, jOrgan is really easy compile in Linux. I assume you're using Windows though? Would you be interested in learning about how to compile it?

    Graham, Thanks for your kind interest. I have just been to a computer store to check out the cost of a dedicated motherboard, dual core, 3GB RAM, 160GB HDD, Creative Audigy Sound card (over and above the one on the motherboard). I am fairly happy with price quoted but I want to check another store before commiting myself and risk a whack on the head with a frying pan from my wife for spending money on more computer stuff!

    I am interested in Linux but despite various discussions in the other forum, the steps I need to follow are rather vague. I do have a spare HDD that is partitioned into 2 x 100GB+ partitions. So I can actually take on your offer. I was planning to wait for Bill Skees to complete his manual to follow instructions that may appear there. So please feel free to guide me along.

    One minor point, I had attempted to intall Ubuntus on my laptop. It took a substantual chunk of disk space on the 80GB HDD and had to uninstall because I was desperate for memory. However, everytime I reboot the choice to load ubuntus remains. How do I remove that on start-up?

    Hi Mark B,

    Edit your boot.ini file and delete the entry for Ubuntus. You can edit this file with a text editor such as notepad. Should take care of the start up choice.

    Hi Stephen, I made a search for this file and only came up with a boot.ini.backup! This is in c:/windows/pss . Deleting the ubuntus entry there did not change anything.

    Hi Mark,
    You probably need to change your Folder View settings so that you can see system files... what OS are you using? WinXP, Vista or Win7?

    Hi Mark,
    In Windows Explorer, click on 'Tools > Folder Options', then click on the 'View' tab and scroll down to the 'Hide protected operating system files' and deselect the check box... You should then be able it find the file in c:\

    You can get at boot.ini in Win XP by using Start|Run and typing msconfig
    When you run it, it will show a dialog with several tabs, one of which will be boot.ini.

    Thanks Pete and Graham.... and Stephen! I managed to find the file and edited it. Rebooting now without that annoying option. Thanks again pals!

    Whenever you are ready Graham, you can start the Linux installation lessons which I will slowly and carefully follow and carry out on the spare partitioned HDD that I have.

    This will be an interesting thread to follow. I enjoy jOrgan quite a bit.

    As of jOrgan 3.8beta3
    (a) is still set to the default "get velocity"
    (b) starts midi channel numbering from 1 instead of 0

    All the best.

    Erik.

    Thanks Erik. Indeed, despite the embarrassment I was needlessly subjected to having been axed from that forum, the two issues are being taken up by SM after all:

    beta 3 is available for download:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/jorgan/files/

    - new Ranks now use 'reset all controllers' as first Engaged message
    (old Ranks were already converted in previous betas),
    - Customizer uses 1-16 channel "user" naming
    - Creative and Soundfont imports have an additional option for touch
    sensitivity (not selected by default
    ),
    - on eject both Recorder and Memory view will now use the disposition's
    folder to choose a file from.
    - full screen action is now located in the 'file' menu
    - you can now extract memory definitions from old dispositions...
    Regards
